there have been some lovely skies here in ohio lately. as many of you constant readers (i borrowed that from stephen king hee hee) know, my hubbie and leave the house very early each morning to carpool to work together. he drives and i look for interesting things to photograph. at the end of some very long days we repeat the process, headed northwest toward home. again, i am armed with my camera and a creative eye thirsting for something to capture.
it always amazes me how the sky can change so rapidly as the sun rises and sets. some days are mostly uneventful. others are simply stunning in their color, texture and vivid imagery.
there's a certain kind of light in the sky these days. as the sun starts shifting northward, the angle of its beams casts a whole new glow. that certain kind of light spins a certain kind of joy in my heart and my life. it harkens spring and birds twittering and the hope of gardening and late evening walks.
and with that joy and hope comes the knowledge that each day will be a bit longer and the opportunity for taking photos will grow as well.
so i take my camera with me everywhere i go. a gal just never knows what she may see out the window of a moving car.
and a gal certainly has the right to pull those quirky photos into photoshop and make them even quirkier!!
i was asked in an e-mail recently if i've given up my mixed media art. the writer of the e-mail said she missed seeing my work. i was so touched. i think i've been taking a bit of an artistic break. but i'll be back soon with some new pieces. i'm hankering to try something new with more painting and less paper collage. i have my creative eye on new subject matter as well. i'll be back, my friends, all in good time!
and last, thank you. thank you for reading. thank you for commenting. thank you for your kindness, humor and friendship. but, most of all, thank you for allowing me to feel that my creative passions are enjoyed by someone other than me. your presence in my life casts a certain kind of wonderful, fulfilling light as well.
