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? 😉 Lol.

Over the past week I have been gearing up my zazzle store with items for mother’s day.  This variation of this design,  originally intended for use on custom envelopes to match some custom stationery I created, looks great on many Mother’s day gifts, with the slogan “Best Mum EVER!” (and would work equally well as gifts for mothering sunday)

These coasters say you love mom in word and deed (since once she has them,  you’ll be sure to not leave water rings on her furniture 😉 )

These necklaces for mom are also available as round pendants.

these great mother’s day shirts also have cute matching “I’ve got THE Best Mum EVER!” shirts for baby (and older kids too).

About a month ago while I was getting some photos ready to post for sale, I decided my bleeding heart arch across the forest picture would be even better with a more abstract background; so, I tried playing around in paint.net with using multiple semi transparent layers with different layer blend modes as well as taking it back in to picassa afterward to retouch a few areas that were still not soft enough.

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety to Oregon in the backyard–since they are the first things to bloom in my yard each year. Last year I transplanted these red ones from between several ferns to a roomier and slightly sunnier location. Hopefully they will start filling out a little better now. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on several separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

In this softly focused macro photo, a red bleeding heart hangs from its stem alone in the sun as beads of rainwater glisten on it’s leaves. Beyond are the dark shadows of the forest and the remains of last autumn’s brown leaves strewn on the ground.

Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as traditional red ones , and a pink native variety in the backyard. Originally I just had these pink one’s which I got at an earth day fair back when I lived out in Gresham. It was one of many native species of plants being given away that day to encourage people to grow more native species in their yards. At first mine did not do well because I had them in a shallow planter bowl. Then I realized that bleeding hearts actually have long tap roots, so I transplanted them out back, near a path we are building down into the forest,  into a bottomless planter  made from an old tire I hauled out of our woods which looked a bit like a big flower to me because of the zig zag edge that was already cut into it when I found it. Since then they have really filled out and started blooming more prolifically. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on my bleeding hearts and on the sunlight out the kitchen window for the perfect photo opportunity. A few weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

A friend recently informed me, when she was over for a visit, that she had always thought bleeding hearts only came in pink. I am so glad they come in multiple colors, because I have three different varieties growing at my house 😀

In this dreamy, softly focused, black and white photo, a branch of white bleeding hearts whose blossoms glow in the sun, arcs upward. Several other sprigs of heart shaped flowers hang downward in the background while patterns of sunlight and shadow create star-like shapes on the leaves in the lower right corner. The darker background causes the flowers to stand out more.

I have to say I LOVE my yard!
Every spring I look forward to the old fashioned white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, as well as the red ones blooming in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Two weeks ago I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds.

Covered in raindrops and glistening in the sun, this White bleeding hearts plant has an arc of white heart shaped flowers in the forefront as well as several others looking tiny in the distance where they hide amongst the shelter of the foliage. The rain drops fall down the face of the middle flower like teardrops.

I have to say I LOVE my yard!
Every spring I look forward to the  white bleeding hearts coming into bloom in the front yard, I love their old fashioned beauty. They are the first blossoms in my yard each spring, followed by the red bleeding hearts, and the pink ones, blooming in the backyard. For weeks now my trigger finger has been itching as I have been keeping a close eye on them and on the sunlight out the window for the perfect photo opportunity. Last week I managed to get out with my camera for a few minutes on two separate occasions when there was a break in the rain and the sun peeked out brilliantly between the clouds. After looking the first batch of pictures, while doing some editing, it occurred to me that they would look lovely against a dark background. so the next time the sun was out I grabbed a dark blue binder we had and stuck it behind the blossoms in the photos. This worked beautifully after editing to soften the background as well as making some other artistic editing choices. I may experiment with some other background choices the next time the lighting is good. Here are just a few, I’ll be posting more here soon….

Today I finally finished the drawing for a Christmas card design I  started on 3 Christmases ago.  Originally I was going to do what most greeting card companies suggest and cut paper and use that technique to keep the design simple. I even had some brown paper that was just the right color for the camels that I wanted on my card.  So after going to Wetcanvas.com and checked their free reference photo library to refresh my mind on what a camel REALLY looks like, I turned the computer off and got to work drawing some camels on my brown paper and cutting them out with an Exacto knife. The camels turned out really well and there was even one who looked particularly spunky and happy to be traveling to Bethlehem. doing the paper cut outs did help with the composition, because it was then just an easy matter of placing one overlapping the other instead of trying to figure out where one would end and the other begin while I was drawing them. By the time I had gotten the Christmas star as well as some other stars cut out, in addition to my camels, some wise men, the manger, and a concept sketch for Mary and Joseph cut out I decided what I really wanted to do was to PAINT the card rather than work with paper cut outs.  In retrospect I wish I had stayed with the original concept instead of changing in mid stream, because I would have been done a long time ago. It created a lot of extra work to have to trace the things I had already cut out onto another piece of paper.  Then I started a long and tedious process of  drawing on tracing paper  and then tracing what I had drawn onto some heavy duty art paper after having cut it and arranged it in the composition I wanted.  Another thing I wish I had done a little differently would be to make the original drawing larger than the card and then just use the computer to shrink it down. Of course that might just encourage me to add even more detail and make things even more complicated ;/

I love the composition in this card. What I was really going for was the “perfect” Christmas card–something that perfectly expressed my feelings and sentiments about the meaning of Christmas, rather than some of the shallower, albeit fun Christmas messages out there. So in the center of this design is a heart with the Christmas star centered above it and piercing downward into it. Then moving around clockwise like a Mandela three little stars seem to dance in with joy in the night sky with the desire to follow the three wise men to Bethlehem. The three wisemen and their camels curve around the heart , hugging it closely on their journey to see the newborn king. Even one of the camels cannot contain his joy has as with a merry face he saunters jauntily along. Beyond the caravan a shepherd kneels with his sheep in adoration of the Christ Child. The infant Jesus smiles in his sleep in the manger as Joseph lovingly supports a weary, but joyful, Mary on his shoulder.  Moving upward around the second half of the heart, the composition then moves through some of the important events of Christ’s life.  We see the sea of Galilee where the apostles on their ship watch in awe as Christ walks toward them on the water. Next we follow a path past the house where the bedridden man is let down through the roof so that Jesus can heal him. The road continues on towards the mount where the multitude listens to Him teaching the Beatitudes. Next is a portrayal Him pleading with his Father in the Garden of Gethsemane. Beyond the Cross the Resurrected Lord is met by Mary at the tomb.

Right now this is simply a line drawing, but by this time next year I plan on having a full color version available for sale. For now, this design is also available on a variety of other zazzle products. Within the next couple days it will also be available as a print and greeting card on both Imagekind and RedBubble. (*UPDATE* now on fineartamerica too)
