The Week in Art

Hard to believe it's August already and that Summer will soon be over. I'm ready. It's hot. It's humid. The heat puts the kabosh on my desire to go out and do photography. The upside is that I can get processing done on some of the thousands of photos sitting in files on my computer and can dabble and play in both Traditional Art and Digital Art. Here are a few from this week:

Pages 6 & 7 of my moleskine for the Sketchbook Project 2011 following my theme of "below the surface":
Below the surface of my laptop lies the mother of all boards!

"Winter Reunion" is the next page of my Gypsy Journal:
dreaming time
waiting for my hand
few moments when
something intimate
can launch a memory
winter reunion

Some fruit doodles in colored pencil combined digital textures:

And a fun little dreamer:

I did manage to do two photo manips for the 365 Photo Manipulation Group on Flickr.
Both images will be available in prints and note cards:

Out to Sea


I also processed a couple of other photos including this one
of my beautiful friend, cousin and fellow artist and blogger, Missy

This was taken in Englewood Kansas during our hunt for Bigfoot. :)

Next up for the weekend is a Digital Art Day with Lita where I'm working on turning my friend Trena into a Moon Fairy and a day out shooting a Japanese Garden with my friend Martina. Hope everyone's weekend will also be filled with art, creativity and L♥VE!

Thank you! It was a fun week! Love you too!

Lita said...

It's a windfall of art!!! Impressed and in total awe are but two adjectives that come to mind after seeing all your pieces.

You so excel at everything you do! And I love your brilliant use of multi-media :)

All of it inspires me,
especially Winter Reunion and the corresponding poetry.
