Finally getting around to posting again after being in a bit of a blue funk for the past several months. I think I just got burnt out over the holidays trying to do too much and hyper focusing on posting holiday items on Zazzle. Blogging was just one more thing on my already too long to-do list, and it felt futile and pointless there for a while.

About a month ago I was feeling a little down and decided to do some photo manipulation for a bit of a pick-me-up. This one turned out so well I just had to share it:

These lovely red lilies were photographed back in July while out on a walk. I spotted them growing in front of a shed at the edge of somebody’s yard. I Love the interesting color and texture that created behind the lilies. The lady that lives there grows a plethora of gorgeous flowers. Some day when I am feeling brave I may ask for a tour and permission to photograph more extensively. (I NEVER set foot on someone’s property to get a picture without asking.)

For those of you who are interested in the nitty-gritty of how I attained the lovely effects in this photo:

In addition to playing with the lighting, contrast, and focus, there are several layers of texture photos such as: macro shots of the inside of my wok –where the Teflon has started flaking off– and some of a finger painting session my toddler did in sour cream on the sliding glass doors. The finishing touch –which occurred to me as I was laying in bed, falling asleep and mulling over what was missing to pull it all together–was to add a purplish-blue tint to each corner using semi-transparent gradients.

In this elegant digital photo of some red lilies glowing in the summer sunlight, tinting and textures, combined with warm glints of golden color, create splashes of energy, ebb and flow, and an aura of magic shimmering with romance.

On another walk during the beginning of July, I spotted these stunning little clover with their magnificent red leaves growing at the edge of a parking lot near the sidewalk. I’m pretty sure they are a hare’s foot trefoil, although they are really different from the fairly drab one’s I photographed later in the season a summer or two ago, because they still have the characteristic rabbit’s foot shaped blossoms.

Here is another photo I took of another sprig of clover in the same location that day. Notice the lovely color variation in the flowers, which is quite stunningly different from the uniform pale lavender blossoms in the 1st photo. The burgundy spikes mixed with the whitish fluff is quite dramatic. I am assuming they are still just another variety of Hare’s foot trefoil, although I’m certainly no expert on the subject. Since St.Patrick’s day is coming up next month, I’m wondering which is considered more lucky though, a four-leaf clover or one with blossoms shaped like rabbit’s feet? ūüėČ Lol.

Back in July while out on a walk I spotted these lovely lilies with red petals and yellow centers. These¬† Hemerocallis fulva longituba are¬† a hybrid daylily called¬† “Red Magic” because of its dramatic color combination.¬† I just recently got to editing out the background,¬† replacing it with a smooth chocolaty background. The results are striking and elegant.

This week I made a T-shirt design on Redbubble of my water-soluble oil painting, Midsummer Daydream.

Water soluble oils on gessoed paper. 14 3/4″ x 11 1/4″ 2007.
The wood sprite creates ripples in his refection as he daydreams. Fairies dance on the lily pads and skate across the water while his leaf boat floats away to dreamland.

Dragon Lily, chalk drawing on paper, 9 X 12″ by Dawna Morton, 2009. Done entirely from memory in the space of about an hour, this large magenta colored flower sits on a moody background of expressive impressionistic leaf shapes. In colors of green and purple with hints of magenta, the foliage fans out around this striking flower like a burst of living flames.

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.

My husband got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers this year for valentines day: stargazer lilies and purple irises. I took some pictures of them and had fun with the editing features in picassa3. A combination of softening the background, sharpening the foreground, adding a little extra glow, and in some cases also making it a focused black and white, or even bumping up the color saturation a little created some extraordinary effects. I really like how these turned out.
