2023 CREATIVE GOALS
Hi there! It's been awhile since my fingers have met keys on my creative blog and I'm so glad that you are here reading my words. Didn't it seem like 2022 just flew by? And to think 2023 is just right around the corner. My year was filled with homeschooling and lots of enjoyable readings with my young learners. They are in their tweens so learning and engaging with one another have been such an enjoyment. I love seeing my children create, think, read, and follow their interests. Most of my creative time has been dedicated to my children's art resources and meeting my goal of about 1000 fun, low-prep art activities and resources for kids that even adults will enjoy doing. However, I wanted to switch gears for 2023 and I'm hoping to focus on pursuing one area of creative interests that I've had since I was a kid, and that is to write, illustrate, and publish children's books. I've been putting this on hold for awhile and my creative goals for 2023 are to work on children's books, to take courses that will challenge and push my art skills and to learn about this market. Wish me luck and with that note, I'm wishing you a creative journey in 2023. Image captured, 2022
THE PERFECT BACKYARD VIEW
This photograph was taken a few months ago and has significant meaning to me as the hummingbird, which I named Hummie, appeared to me after we loss our beloved dog, Zuke. The lost was painful but it was a peaceful one as he was ill for years and we were relieved that he was no longer in pain or uncomfortable. Hummie appeared in the sky at our backyard during a lovely day. I was so excited to see him as I adore birds. His appearance reminded me of God's grace and the impactful beauty that life continues to offer us despite any losses along the way. Count your blessings today.
This is an image that makes me smile each time I see it. I remember wanting to play with perspective and being really low when capturing my son and nephew on a walk to a local river. I love the green colors in this photograph. Image captured, May 2018.
Black and white photographs intrigue and inspire me. These are some images of my son and a "battle" that he was in. Images captured, March 2018.
Hi there! One of my projects (the not so fun part) is to slowly downsize all of my creative files (trash double files or the ones that I will not get to, organize folders to easily find them and list art or photography pieces for free or for purchase). I wanted to share this 8 x 10" wall art print with you and hope you enjoy. It's free to download. Just print from your personal computer or at a print shop. Happy inspirations!
Photo Archive: Macro Green
When I was able to commit more time to photography, I really enjoyed macro photography of natural elements. The lines, colors, shapes and intricate designs make me in awe of how creative God is and I'm just excited to have been able to utilize tools to capture His creation. This photograph was taken a few years ago and I'm glad I'm able to share it with you. Lately, I've been drawn to green shades and if time permits, I hope to be able to share my current photographs with you. Well, I hope your 2022 has been a start to a restful and hopeful new year. Image captured, 2020.
Photo Archive: Floral Shadows
I enjoy capturing floral images in unconventional ways and love the look of "old" vintage images. So I played around with photography and editing.
Photo Archive: Hello Fog
An unedited photograph from my phone of a foggy day spent with visiting family members. It was a cold but fun winter. I love the feeling of bundling up and looking at life through foggy filters. Landscapes tend to have more of an artistic feel during foggy weather, as if someone took a brush and painted the scene; for this is one reason why I love photographing images during a foggy day.
