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

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #492 – I’m All In

I'm All In Musings of the Artists Mind I was aiming at a different flower altogether when the wind blew this blossom in and out of my shot and I caught it. From the vantage of my naked eye the flower seemed indecisive as to whether or not is wished to be in the shot, … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #492 – I’m All In

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #491 – I’m Still Here

I'm Still Here Musings of the Artists Mind These tissue thin fragilities look as if they went through a hail storm. The petals look like paper, weatherworn and aged. Yet, the plant remains standing tall and the stems unbroken; defiant and proud, beautifully powerful. I chose to antique the shot to remove the obvious browning … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #491 – I’m Still Here

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #490 – Out Of The Night

Out Of The Night Musings of the Artists Mind Shot at sunset and with a low-lighting setting, the original was much less vibrant. I played a lot with the exposure, definition, and contrast to pull forth the colours the sun played on these petals as it was setting across its pinkish blue sky. I love … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #490 – Out Of The Night

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #489 – Just So, Blossoms

Just So, Blossoms Musings of the Artists Mind I had to take many macro shots of these tiny blossoms to capture the giant beauty they held. They were very frail looking and the slight breeze had them moving around as if in a gale storm. Only when I used a black & white setting did … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #489 – Just So, Blossoms

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #488 – Land Anemone With Occupant

Land Anemone With Occupant Musings of the Artists Mind Like the surreal vibrance of the sea anemone that attracts the equally vibrant clownfish, these flowers seem to bring in a great visitation of colourful bugs. From the green bottle fly and multicoloured beetles to this odd little tigre wasp seen in the lower centre of … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #488 – Land Anemone With Occupant

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #487 – Lovely Mornings

Lovely Mornings Musings of the Artists Mind I feel I may have captured a still from a soap commercial here. Showing a world made fresher, cleaner, brighter, and more delightful by its use. In a less cynical view, I am in love with the different expressions one gets from the individual flowers. You may find … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #487 – Lovely Mornings

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #486 – Marbled Pink

Marbled Pink Musings of the Artists Mind At this point, some of you may be wondering if this nostalgic marbling of my Nono’s peonies is an obsession or overdone pride in my Italian heritage. Well, it may well be both. Like many I know, I have very few clear memories of my childhood and no … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #486 – Marbled Pink
