On Saturday, I was interviewed by Michael Harris with CAGO (Contemporary Art Gallery Online) Media for “An Artist Speaks”. It was very exciting to be interviewed and a great opportunity to share my thoughts and feelings around/about my photography. If you have 30 minutes or so please go to the interview and then let me know what you think of it or any questions.
I’ll also share the photos here that I talked about in the interview. Enjoy!
After The Shower
Sit With Me
“My Pixy Home” is in the Nature/Nurture exhibit at the 120 ART/Taylor, TX Artists’ Guild So if you are in the area please stop by and take a peek!
So happy to have 3 more of my photos accepted as photos of the day!
Here is my photo Green & Raindrops – taken in the Wakheena Falls area in Oregon:
And then my photo Thru the Door of a ’54 – which is one of my favorite of this abandoned old truck!
Then a cutie – Is It Safe To Come Out?
Nature is amazing. Some of the scenery I see along the way shows me that there is no end to the creativity of nature. So the word this Tuesday is Tree.
Being as I travel through a lot of rural areas and have been blessed to travel to the Caribbean I had a few tree photos stashed in my library.
This first photo is from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Along the Princess Walk there are trees that are completely twisted!
This second photo is from Gentry, Arkansas. There is little lake there hidden in the woods where the autumn sun made the colors just gorgeous!
This tree was in a shopping center in Oregon in the fall. The colors were so strong that I had to play with the photo a bit to give it a different look. I like the effect that I chose for it.
So, now you know what is next! Show me your trees!!!
This week the photo challenge from WordPress is Beyond.While walking thru the area around Multnomah Falls and Wakheena Falls in Oregon I found many little waterfalls hidden beyond the next corner in the path. Here is one as I approached it – you can see it just beyond all of the foliage. And the second is the waterfall as I came to face it. Enjoy!
Cee challenged us to show the best of our outdoor and nature photos for 2012 in her weekly Fun Foto Challenge. Now that is a hard one for me. I truly enjoy nature and the outdoors and have a lot of photos so choosing 3 is definitely a challenge. I had to think about what I wanted to share – my best photos or photos of those with my fondest memories or the most popular ones from this blog in 2012….
So ….. (drum roll) I am going with the fondest memories. Hopefully, you will enjoy them!
Mt. Rainier in Washington state
Hot Springs, AR
Wakheena Falls area, OR
I like playing along with other photographers/bloggers on the photo challenges that go on regularly. One of my challenges is with Where Is My Backpack. This latest challenge is Oceans. So here is a photo that you may have seen before, Bird, Beach & Clouds, which was taken on the coast of Oregon and features Haystack Rock.
