Nesting

30 04 2015

A Mourning dove has built her nest in a plant pot on the top of my gardening bench. You can see part of one of two babies to her right (black with white streaks). I can’t do my annual cleanup in that area until after flying lessons are given! Isn’t she pretty? (iPhone 6 with Snapseed2)

My spirits soar…

30 04 2015

All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.
On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.
I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.

Check out my store on Society6!

19 04 2015

Trying my hand at an online store called Society6 to sell my photos on a variety of fun products! All images are available as unframed and framed prints as well as canvases, too, in a variety of different sizes.

I’ll be uploading more later, but there’s plenty to choose from now—prints (unframed, framed and canvas), iPhone/iPad/iPod cases, laptop skins, pillows, tote bags, and greeting cards.

I’m learning as I go and should be able to offer other products such as small area rugs, t-shirts, mugs and even shower curtains. I will be uploading more photos this week so check back often!

Check it out (and support a starving artist while you’re there)! Click on the link below and be sure to look at the list of other products on the left side of the screen.

Repost: Daffodils in my garden

This is one of my favorite daffodil shots. I shoot the majority of my plant portraits in either overcast light or by diffusing the light with my tri-grip diffuser. On this day, the soft sunlight spoke to me and I let it illuminate my subject without any diffusion.

Nancy & Pete’s critters

14 04 2015

I recently turned these three images into a horizontal canvas (three images across) as a thank you gift to my sister-in-law Nancy and husband Pete, who hosted us at their home the weekend after the water lily stamp debut in Ohio. All of the images were shot with my iPhone 6.  I used Snapseed to process them images and add the frames. I added the name in Photoshop for each pet.
