Two weeks ago I went over to a friend’s house for “art day” which is when we forget about the chores for a while and just have fun creating some art and chatting. We don’t get to do that nearly enough. This particular day She was working on some custom painted mats for some small frames , and I decided, because time was short, to paint a flowering tree branch on a bookmark sized piece of paper. There was just barely enough time to finish before time to pick up kids from school, but I thought it would make a nice border for some stationary.

Watercolor painting of red flowers on a spring tree branch with a simple background of yellow sunlight with a delicate pink morning blush. This looks great framed with a cranberry red mat.

With some of the background removed this did in fact make a pretty stationery border. It looks great on a variety of paper colors.

In fact, they turned out so well that I put the design on a variety of cloth napkins too.
Then I got a little carried away and created over 50 colors of custom dish towels.
It even looks great paired with my “abstract in tie dye colors” design on a variety of products 🙂
Any of these would make an excellent gift for Mother’s Day, housewarming gifts, or a wedding present 😉

In may I went out in our back yard and got these lovely shots of these apple blossoms on our apple trees.

During January and February  there were these Styrofoam snowflakes hanging on a tree outside the old elementary school here in town. It was really cute. Every time I walked down that way or drove past I thought about getting some pictures when the light was better. One day before they took them down I finally lucked out– it was neither rainy, nor cloudy, nor grey, and the sunlight was hitting them just right.  I snapped these photos with the thought that it would make some nice greeting cards for new years or Christmas next year. The pictures turned out pretty good, and I was able to edit the background , color most of them blue with a lovely feature called tungsten, and then using a long drawn out many layered process in paint.net I was able to change the Styrofoam texture and consistency–making the snowflakes  icy , translucent, and glowing .

Towards then end of this batch of photos  I came across a floral photo on Redbubble I thought was pretty phenomenal, and when I went to look at it closer the photographer in question listed “texture by skeletal mess” and her original photo shown along side it without the texture. The texture, applied in a semi transparent layer  made all the difference between an average good photo and something that really stood out as amazing.  I searched for and found Skeletal Mess on the internet, and while he offers a large number of  really good free textures and some tutorials on how to use them– I wanted  to create and use my own rather than borrowing the work of somebody else. I have had some fun finding things around the house with interesting abstract patterns and textures to get close up shots of.

I incorporated several of these textures into snowflake in blue #8, with some lovely results. Interestingly enough these particular textures are the result of my teenager’s interpretation of my instructions regarding how to clean the iron skillet. Apparently the part about putting a little water in the bottom and boiling it dry really meant to fill the pan up to the brim  and have fun standing there watching the steam clouds while allowing it to boil over and splash all over the stove too. lol. Anyway, either he did not scrub it good enough or there were some minerals in the water and it made this interesting white splotchy pattern along the sides in  addition to the patterns it left all over the stove by the time he was done. My kids were pretty incredulous when I started taking pictures of it. They kept saying, “Mom, why are you standing on top of the stove?!?” the answer of course is that when using my macro lens you have to be a little further away, and it was the only way to get the shots of the patterns on the stove top. I think they thought mom had finally gone loony.

I have this poor rhododendron bush at the end of my driveway. It’s a good thing it’s hardy, since I have run over it a few times.  (The driveway is curved slightly, on a hill, and the short bush is in a bit of a blind spot when backing out.–Luckily I was able to solve that problem by planting a much more visible, taller rose bush a littler higher up the hill that I can see in the mirrors).

Last spring the sun came out after a good spring rain, and I was able to get these lovely photographs. I love how the raindrops make these flowers sparkle in the sunlight.

Tonight as I was checking on my stats on zazzle I noticed a box at the top of the page labeled “Japan Earthquake Relief,” so I clicked it and found that for every t-shirt on that page zazzle is donating $10 of the proceeds to  charity to help with Earthquake and Tsunami Relief efforts.

Since there was also a link to donate a design to the  cause, I quickly whipped up this cherry blossoms in the sun, red tint hooded sweatshirt with a beautiful red tinted photograph of  some cherry blossoms I took last spring.

I may be exhausted and bleary eyed, and long past due to go to bed, but it seemed like the least I could do.. and at least it is something–albeit small–that I can do to help.

update:
I have also designed this iPhone case on zazzle. All royalties will be donated to relief for Japan until april 12 2011.

This is the very last batch of pictures I took in May, really it is 😉

On the way home from the park I saw these flowers in a planter box in front of a local hair salon. I really liked how they matched the paint on the building. All the warm tones were pretty in the glow of the afternoon sun. I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are… possibly they are some sort of mum. It would probably be easier to tell if the blooms had been opened.

Yellow and orange blossoms, growing in a planter box in front of a yellow and orange building, almost form a circlet as they bask dreamily in the sun–awaiting another day to open and bloom. Flowers near the periphery appear semi transparent and ghost-like almost as a reminder of past hopes and dreams.

On Memorial day when I took the kids for a walk down to the local park to play, I got these beautiful pictures of a bird in a bush. It took a while to figure out where exactly the tweeting was coming from, and then some patient bird stalking to get close enough to get these, but they turned out lovely. Although it was fairly easy to learn that the bird was a white crested sparrow, it took more searching than usual to discover that the bush with its clusters of blue blossoms is a blue blossom Ceanothus Thyrsiflorus bush which is native to California.

Back in may when I was editing my tulip photos I decided to do experimenting with one of them in paint.net just to see what some of the different photo editing tools did and to learn to do some new things. It’s been long enough ago now that I don’t remember all the different steps I used to create these one of the tools I used on this first one was layer properties. Opening multiple copies of the same photo and then choosing different levels of transparency and blending modes. I think I even used a polar inversion, which did some interesting things to the background on one layer.

Superimposed with many semi transparent layers of abstract shapes, this red tulip seems to be floating in a nebula.

Then when I started getting this ready to post here I decided that the tulip needed to be moved higher in the picture to create a better composition. this was done by flipping another copy of the picture upside down , and then blending the edges together, as well as making a few other changes, and then cropping it. It looks even more beautiful now.

My kids however, thought it looked “weird” to have the tulip under the semi transparent layers, so I made this one, just for them, by adding multiple gradient layers of the tulip on top as well as adding a swirl beneath–and then doing the usual final retouches.

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.

Here is the last installment of apple blossom pictures I took this spring. For some reason these first two seem to have a bit of an oriental flair, but maybe that’s just me. It’s just something about the foremost of the apple blossoms–perhaps the shape in combination with the glowing light.

Glowing translucently in the sun, white apple blossoms stretch upwards towards the sky in front of a dark forest background. On either side of the sprig of blossoms, pale green leaves with golden veins, spread transparent in the sun, tilting like the gossamer wings of a bird circling majestically in the warm spring air.

In this dreamy photograph a sprig of pink apple blossoms appears to sit at the edge of a reflective pool of water surrounded by radiantly glowing spring sunlight.

This is by far my favorite out of my apple blossom photos. I love the brilliant light that fills it, the delicate pink of the blossoms, and the overall peacefulness and tranquility of it as a whole.

Flooded with an ethereal light, this beautiful Pacific Northwest forest scene sets a perfect backdrop for this rustic little wooden birdhouse. Hanging from a lichen covered branch in front of some glowing apple blossoms, it beacons becomingly for a little birdie to make a springtime home.
