This week I have been creating some stationery out of my stargazer lily photographs.

The soft focus in the photo on this stationery of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing brilliantly in the afternoon sun conveys a feeling of old-fashioned romance and memories full of love and joy.

Softly focused photograph of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing gloriously radiant in the afternoon sun. These beautiful blooms stand out gorgeously against the dark background.

This stationery features a focused black and white photo of an arrangement of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies overlaid with a semi transparent writing area. One unopened bud stands tall above the rest which bloom radiantly in an ethereal glow of afternoon sunlight.

A bouquet of stargazer lilies glows in the afternoon sun, with translucent petals and leaves, while the background disappears into the shadows in this softly focused photograph.

A bit of lens flare and a soft focus lend an ethereal effect to this photo of a bouquet of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies shining radiantly in the afternoon sunlight. set on a dark pink background and overlaid with a semi-transparent writing area, this photo makes an elegant writing paper.

Photo of an arrangement of pink and white stargazer lilies glowing radiantly in the sunlight. the soft focus and dark background make one flower stand out dramatically above the rest.

This stationery features a macro photograph of a pink and white stargazer lily on a black background. The stamen and pistol of this gorgeous flower rise upward as the petals unfurl in the radiant sunlight.

More stargazer stationery coming next week…

Michael at the Waterpump, water-soluble oils on gessoed paper, 11 1/16″ x 15 1/16″, 2001. Intellectual property of Dawna Morton. All rights reserved. Do not copy in any form. At a scenic campsite in the forested hills surrounding Oakridge, Oregon, a child and his mother discover the joy of an old-fashioned red water pump after feasting on huckleberries. Poised in mid-stroke of the pump the mother’s figure is bathed half in sunlight and half in dappled shadow with a sense of continuing motion. As the crystal clear mountain water cascades from the spout Michael washed the huckleberry stains from his tiny fingers in joy and wonderment. Surrounding this nostalgic scene is an array of pacific northwest foliage and trees rendered in impressionistic strokes.

I recently created many product on zazzle.com featuring this nostalgic painting. Here is one of several fridge magnets which would make a great inexpensive mother’s day gift or just an everyday expression of appreciation.

Also available is this clear frosted glass mug, perfect for anything frosty cold or piping hot. See your drink peeking through photos, images, or text designs. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Imported.  This design is also available on other mug styles, colors, and sizes. Feel free to customize the text with your own unique message for your mom or other loved one.

Here is the default message I have designed on the left hand side of the mug. It says “Sometimes the simple things bring the greatest joy… Happy Mother’s Day to a great mom!” I think it’s a pretty great message, but you may like something else better. So if you’d like to change the inscription for someone besides your mom and have it say happy mother’s day to a wonderful grandma, or aunt, of wife or even change it so it is for another occasion like the birth of a child or something else, go ahead…


I also designed this bumper sticker as a souvenir for those of us who love to the beautiful small town of Oakridge, Oregon–or it can be customized for another small rural town of your choosing 😉
on the inside the card reads:
“sometimes the simple things bring the most joy…
thanks for all the special moments filled with magic and wonder!”
Next is this earth friendly, economical, and stylish reusable shopping bag featuring my painting. It is also customizable  and available in other colors and styles.
Below are two stamps featuring Michael at the Waterpump. You can mail that special note or card with class and style…

SING Redeeming Love!

SING Redeeming Love!

I am entering the painting SING Redeeming Love, Watercolor, 9×12 “, in the 8th International Art Competition sponsored by the Museum of Church History and Art. The theme for the competition this year  is “Remembering the Great Things of God,”and according to their website,”artists are encouraged to create works of art reflecting the theme and title of the exhibition…This theme is drawn from scriptures that teach the importance of acknowledging and remembering God’s works, promises, and covenants to His children. Artists can depict—but are not limited to—ideas, stories, people, places, doctrines, beliefs, scriptures, teachings, historical events, religious values, and Church, family, and individual experiences in Latter-day Saint life.”

In SING Redeeming Love, Missionaries sing a song of joy, love, and redemption as they seek to find wandering sheep in the desert. As lost sheep are found, they begin to feel joy as they enter the way. Those who remember the great mercy of the Savior for them are filled with the love of Christ, feeling compelled to sing redeeming love with joy that cannot be contained. They desire to share the Gospel of Christ with everyone, that they might also be filled with joy through the Redemption and love of Christ.

This also refers Alma 5:9, 26; 26:13 and is a reminder and an invitation to feel to”‘sing the song of redeeming love’ and mean it as much now as in any past year and as much tomorrow as today!” (Spencer W. Kimball, “‘The Uttermost Parts of the Earth’,” Ensign, Jul 1979, 2).

Update (Dec 17th, 2008):

Today I got a form letter in the mail informing me that the jury  ” eliminated [my] piece from further consideration for the exhibit.”

It continues to say: ” About 1,100 works of art from all over the world were submitted for this competition but less than 20% of these can fit in the galleries where the exhibit will be installed. consequently, decisions by the jury were often very difficult.  Submitted works were frequently of high quality and a wide range of Latter-day Saint experiences and subjects were expressed.  As decisions were made, the jury considered criteria such as subject matter, quality, creativity, range of media, different styles, originality, and various cultural and regional approaches. Accepted works came from more than f0rty countries.  Where there have been certain themes popular among the artists and expressed multiple times, such as the Savior with children, the three-person jury had to choose fewer pieces and consider the wider range of subject matter for the exhibit.  The jury also tried to adhere closely to stated requirements of theme, size, date when the item was made, and usefulness to the Church in expressing its message. Unfortunately, many impressive works of art had to be turned away.”

While I am rather sad that my entry was not selected to be in the exhibit, I look forward to viewing the winners online starting March 21st 2009.
