Today’s art challenge was “Halloween”. I couldn’t get a photo of me in a costume and the one I took of our girls in costume didn’t come out so well as I’d hoped. So I had a little fun in Gimp. I hope you enjoy it and have a great Halloween!
I just had to share this one. John’s outdone himself this time, don’t you think? Pretty awesome, in my opinion!
This is a truly beautiful photo, in my opinion. I’m taken to a peaceful place where time moves slowly and wishes come true. Do check out John’s other wonderful and varied works in photography!
What a fun photo! Lots of interesting things going on here! Be sure to click the link to see more of John’s wonderful work!
As you may know by reading a previous post, I just started experimenting with Gimp. This short post tonight is to show my first attempt at digital art. I had fun so I’ll work on it some more. I wonder if I will still love it after working with it over time or if I’ll get tired of it. I guess we’ll see!
There are days when I have so much fun creating things, I don’t care whether anyone else things they’re good or not. And then there are days when I think, “Why in the world am I sharing this terribly awful piece of work? No one’s going to like it!” It’s a terrible roller coaster ride. But I really am having fun and I’ll continue creating things as long as it’s fun for me. I’ll also continue to share the things I create, too, whether I or anyone else likes them or not. As similar as we are, we humans are not cookie cutters and tastes differ. You never know which work will speak to whom!
I always learn something from reading Vincent’s blog posts. I enjoy his blog and hope more readers will take some time to stop by and see what he has to say.
Thank goodness I live in a country that values individual liberty and freedom of speech. I can now see, however, that some entities believe their opinion is and always will be worth more than others.
I don’t tell doctors how to operate or lawyers how to practice law. I find the Chamber’s activities insulting and demeaning to my profession.
I have watched with growing trepidation how the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce thinks it has all the answers and is willing to use its considerable clout and money to impose their solutions on Lafayette. As such, they have raised thousands of dollars and have scoured the city for candidates to run in this school board election.
I have already written how organizations with little or no expertise in educational matters have tried to influence public policy on education. Such organizations are legion these days. I have also firmly expressed that as…

I can’t post much today but I finished a steampunk waist cincher for Starshine yesterday. I subbed interfacing for a heavier burlap, skipped the boning for comfort and used smaller eyelets than the pattern called for. I’m really pleased with how it came out. And I have to thank John for editing the photos into one for me. I’m now working on my steampunk airship first mate sleeveless coat. It should partner John’s fabulous coat I created in May very well. I hope so, anyway! I’ll post pictures when I can. I’ll be sewing into the late hours again tonight but I’m pleased with the progress so far.
Here are some lovely autumn photos! Please click the link to check out more of Rob Paine’s work!
