The Joy Of New Projects

Transformations have never been so much fun! I'm so excited to be working on this new stash of beautiful pieces. I've been busy studying design and finding that nothing is as simple or exact as described in the books I'm studying. Most of what I'm finding is a blurred and beautiful combination of Mid-Century Modern, … Continue reading The Joy Of New Projects

Making A Promise Of Growth

Here We Go... I've started reading The Artist Way by Julia Cameron on the advice of a an excellent Life Coach. I had complained that I was having a creative block and it felt tied into much of the transitions I'm going through on my growth journey right now. She's not only understood what I … Continue reading Making A Promise Of Growth

Lovely Lines Side Table Rescued & Refurbished – Part 1

On a recent Father & Daughter visit to Finnegan's Flea Market, one of our favourite summer locations, we came across this cute little bench. We originally thought it would be a good addition as a seat to her art-tool box. I fell in love with the bowed legs that gave me the impression it was … Continue reading Lovely Lines Side Table Rescued & Refurbished – Part 1

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #500 – Dandelion

Dandelion Musings of the Artists Mind Dandelions offer amazing mood shots. Naturally full of light and life, even when they are dead and gone to seed. This one attracted a bee and I wondered what pollen or nectar might remain that we cannot see. It is beautifully Halloween like to me. I feel it captures … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #500 – Dandelion

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #499 – Encyclopedic Beauty

Encyclopedic Beauty Musings of the Artists Mind The composition of this shot felt like an illustration from an old encyclopedia, so I chose to age the image digitally, as if it was a lost picture cut and pasted, with real glue, not digitally, into a book. I can imagine the long-winded description of what genus, … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #499 – Encyclopedic Beauty

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #498 – Ghost Of The Cemetery

Ghost Of The Cemetery Musings of the Artists Mind Here’s another example of things with minds of their own in the St-James Cemetary. I was trying to capture the roots of this tree and this little blue flower kept popping its head in from of my camera lens. The camera was focused on the tree … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #498 – Ghost Of The Cemetery

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #497 – Where Have You Been, Mary Ann?

Where Have You Been, Mary Ann? Musings of the Artists Mind You can see that I had to manipulate this image quite a bit to show the name on the nearly buried stone. It was only a little clearer to the naked eye, but try as I might, I couldn’t catch a clear shot. There … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #497 – Where Have You Been, Mary Ann?

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #495 – Ballerinas

Ballerinas Musings of the Artists Mind The perspective of this shot may not give an obvious view of the ballerinas I see, however, look closely at the stamen and it looks like an areal view of a group of dancers twirling together to cover the small circle, all gracefully twirling together in the gentle beauty … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #495 – Ballerinas

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #494 – Dragon Lily

Dragon Lily Musings of the Artists Mind I have to admit that I feel strongly that I may have used this shot in a different part of this collection, but I can’t be sure, as I often take a great many similar shots before choosing the one that appeals to me. This one has very … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #494 – Dragon Lily

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #493 – Dreaming Of The Day

Dreaming Of The Day Musings of the Artists Mind I’ve been unable to keep a single impression of this flower, but it always feels like it’s related to fire. As I write this I see an ember within the flames at the end of a touch that is being waved around in the dark night. … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #493 – Dreaming Of The Day
