Vibrant Galaxies

A different perspective on the Tethered Biospheres photo. Perhaps I've been watching too much Star Trek lately, but it does look like those galaxies they are always encountering. The mysterious nebulas. I simply hyper saturated the colours and the extra luminescence appeared. My imaginations flew me through this wonderful vision of outer space. For more … Continue reading Vibrant Galaxies

Tethered Biospheres

Can you picture a futuristic cityscape, where the communities are vast biospheres floating in the sky and tethered to the earth? That's what I saw when I crouched down into the buggy grasses and looked across this field. Perhaps these are the skeletal remains of one off these fantasy world-scapes. For more of my photo … Continue reading Tethered Biospheres

Painting With Light & Imagination

This week in In Pursuit of my Art Ed Degree... I discovered the limitations and drawbacks of being an autodidact. For years, I've been experimenting with different media while making my art. I've told myself it doesn't really matter if I know what I'm doing or not, because I'm pursuing creativity. I'm just not convincing … Continue reading Painting With Light & Imagination

The Well-Traveled Trunk – Part 1

Imagine The Travels This Truck Has Taken... Considering the humour and wit of the donor of this amazing find, I can well imagine it's seen quite a bit. The world, in fact. What can I do with such a storied piece that will allow it to see so much more? At first thought, I imagined … Continue reading The Well-Traveled Trunk – Part 1

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

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?
