I always feel like I'm a day behind over here on the left coast. While you to my right have been up for hours; have posted your SP's and moved on to the rest of your day.
My lovely friend Jen came to visit yesterday. She is current, young, hip and beautiful - a photographer, an artist, a seeker and traveller. She is going to take me to the cool places in Portland in September. I've been out here in the boonies so long that I've lost all touch. Her photography and the photography I see on the blogs of my friends have fired me up to take more photos. More on that later in the post.
This is the painting on the cabinet door that I made in class Saturday. It is painted over a photograph of my mother taken when she was 16 years old. The door measures 14x28". I have a dream of doing hundreds of these for any who want them to honor their relatives. It brings the departed closer; like a little shrine to the love that brought you here.
Shot this photo yesterday to prove the impossible. 107 degrees. Good practice for Arizona, where I'll be one week from today.
An off the wall journal page. I'm dreaming of making Sculpey marionettes next. This was inspired by the painting on my favorite coffee cup.
Another shot taken through my Argus seventy-five twin reflex camera. The flower in the foreground is the enormous Matalija Poppy.
Another journal page ready for writing and more stuff glued in. I made these while Katie was here.
Casting a long shadow yesterday afternoon down the street where I live. Today it's supposed to be cooler; only 101 degrees. ha ha. Okay, I'm delirious. Cheers.
