John set up a table at the Eunice Farmer’s Market and I set out a few small prints. Come out and support local farmers and artists if you’re in the area!
Here are some more photos from January. I’ve been playing a vicious game of “Catch Up” and trying to get all the things I created this year uploaded and shared out. Here are three more of my photos. I edited all these in Gimp. I think my best photo is “The Shadows Grew Long” but the most fun was “Twins”. What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed viewing these! Please feel free to leave comments. Which one is your favorite? What do you like about it? Any constructive criticisms are welcome, as well. Thanks in advance!
Our internet will be off on Friday so I want to try to post up until that day, as long as I have something to share. I hope you will enjoy this.
I’ve been busy working on more drawings and mixed media things. As I try new things and get new ideas, I have to figure out how to put my ideas on paper. It takes times so I won’t be posting as often. In the mean time, I snapped a few photos. I hope you enjoy them!
I’m so glad to be home. We visiting with family during our Thanksgiving break and really enjoyed being with them. It’s good to be back in our own place, though. Unfortunately, we’ve been fighting a cold since before the break. First one daughter, then the other got it. Before we came home, John and I started feeling the beginnings of it. I feel pretty blechy today but I’m doing my best to get over it quickly. Taking my vitamins. Eating soup. Staying away from sugary things for the most part. I’ll probably make fresh honey lemon tea tonight.
Anyway, here are the last two works I submitted for daily art challenges in the fb group I belong to. I hope you enjoy them. Note: They are not available for purchase. Only the digital art piece is available for download and that, only for personal use. Please keep that in mind! Thanks!
This is the first one:
I’m sorry for not posting yesterday. I tried to edit a photo yesterday and it just was not happening. Have you ever had one of those days where things just don’t click, no matter how hard you try? I guess yesterday was one of those kinds of days for me, creatively. Otherwise, I had a pretty awesome day.
I’ve had this photo for about a week or two and wanted to do something with it in Gimp. I snapped it with my cell while John was doing the “Taking Over” photo shoot. (Oh! John is also selling a few prints through deviantART now, so do check out what he has available there! They’d make really nice Christmas gifts!) I started last night and…ugh…we won’t go into the details. But here’s the end result. I finished it up this morning without too much trouble. And as a bonus, I found the fractal tool in Gimp and tried it out on the leaf photo I used to paint the leaf for the art challenge ‘autumn’ topic. It’s not anything fancy but it definitely fits the ‘oddball’ theme for Cee’s Oddball Challenge. These are my first two attempts at photomanipulation. I hope you enjoy them! For more info on either of them, just click the photos to check them out on my deviantART pages for each. You can download a copy for personal use only or purchase a print if either one strikes your fancy. 🙂
I haven’t given up on the art challenge group. I just haven’t had any extra time to devote to the topics. Some of them are really…um…challenging! I snapped quite a few photos over the past weekend and I’m editing them slowly as time and my schedule allow. Here are three of them. For more information on any of them, or to download a digital copy or purchase a print (of the first two only), click on the photos to go to my deviantART pages for each of them. I did use Pixlr Express to edit these. I had better luck with the last two, as far as getting close to my vision for each of them.
I do hope to have a bit of artwork to show you in tomorrow’s post, or maybe in the one after. See you then!
