art created with no hands, no brush: but water, wind and sand

•March 6, 2010 • 7 Comments

The old saying of being in the right place at the right time…I believe is true with so many forms of our lives. Even photography.

While going for a walk to clear my brain, I was amazed when I came upon this beautiful creation in the sand. I was so thankful that I had brought my camera, which I had actually thought about not bringing. I really needed to clear my thoughts and upon finding this beautiful design in the sand I could only smile and thank God for a wonderful experience.

a horse with something to say

•January 31, 2010 • 10 Comments

I have to say I was a little estatic when this beautiful horse decided he had something to say…..

and he seemed to be a smart butt tooooo….

Must say everyone thought it was quite humorous.

Was blessed to be able to spend the day on Cumberland Island, Florida this past week and capture some awesome shots. BUTTTT…I will share those later because sometimes it is just being able to capture that just right shot with being in the right place at the right time with the finger ready to snap..

do you have to travel for great photography

•January 16, 2010 • 5 Comments

NO!!! Or at least I don’t think so. Oh, it would be wonderful to go to Africa, Australia or London to take some awesome photographs. BUT…how many of us that just love photography for the fun of it can afford that.

For one, not me.

SO, why not take a look around the

streets in town

a flower in your yard

town carnival

near by lake or river

the sky

which I have captured several heart shapes that has almost become an obsession now.

and don’t forget the

state parks

with all the walking trails and of course you don’t always have to have a color photograph……I love black and white.

goofed–can’t add google friend

•January 4, 2010 • 9 Comments

What a bummer!!!!!! Guess I should have done my home work before I sent out all of those request to my friends to come over and sign up under the google friend connect.  Oh well, maybe they will get to where it is up to date…I must say I am disappointed but will keep trucking a long with what gadgets I do have here. It took me a while just to figure out how to even start blogging. It is an adventure that I am glad  I decided to tackle.

SO how about a picture for the day OR maybe one or 2…

Eye Level

Eye Level

He is still out there..wonder if he misses this tooth..lolol… A story about the tooth is that I had found one on my previous visit to Jacksonville Beach. The lady that we are parked next to at the RV camp told me that she had been looking for one for her grandson….I told her jokingly that if I found one I would give it to her…GUESS what (almost) the first thing I found on the beach…yeap you guessed it..the sharks tooth above….I laughed and said well Lord thank you…the lady was so happy and said her grandson would be exstatic…..

All washed up until tomorrow!

Reflection of 2009

Setting on 2009

Rising on 2010!!!!!!!

do you need your soul refreshed, a place to dream

•December 28, 2009 • 4 Comments

This is how I feel when I find a way to express myself through some type of art. Some say, art is what one has painted on a canvas BUT to me art comes in many forms. It is in what the eye of the beholder sees and experiences.

Being a professional faux finisher, you have to be artistic when you have to create that one of a kind finish for your client whether it be for a wall finish

or canvas art.

Then there are

architects, like the ones that designed this bridge…AWESOME!!!

(a shot I captured going to Jacksonville, Florida)

Clothes designer,

interior designer,

art journaling,

jewelry makers,


….the list goes on.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…for me that is why you see all types of post on my blog…I have to stay busy with some form of art whether it be faux, art journaling,


or playing

photographer. What can I say!!!!!!!!

When I need to shut out the noise of the world, let go of my fears, to be able to dream and refresh my soul, it can be

the beach,

a hill,

a sunset,

sitting under a tree

or going for a

walk in the woods.

Fungus Amungus

It is just a place where you can walk away with a feeling of renewed hope.

Even better is be fulfilled with that same refreshment all over again when I begin to see the shots as they download on the computer. They may only be an inspiration to me but that is what it is all about….finding that renewed feeling within ones self.

Do you recycle??? the art of recycling!

•December 28, 2009 • 2 Comments

I love the way some people can come up with ways to turn other peoples trash into art….trash to treasure is what I call it. Wouldn’t your kids love these to play in, that is if we can get the computer, phone, wii ect away from them long enough.

I have a ton of vinyl records stored…wonder if anyone would like a new bowl? Although it might leak through the little hole in the center. I would like to have one for myself, I love it and what a great conversation piece., the art of recycling !.

Have a joyous blessed Christmas Holiday!!

A dear friend shared this with me and I loved it, so I wanted to share with all of you….May your Christmas be filled with joy and your New Year with everything that you ever dreamed….God Bless
Today…I wish you a day of ordinary miracles-
A fresh pot of coffee you didn’t have to make yourself.
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.
Green stoplights on your way to work or shop.
I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in…
The fastest line at the grocery store.
A good sing along song on the radio.
Your keys right where you look.
I wish you a day of happiness and perfection-little bite-size pieces of perfection that give you the funny feeling that the Lord is smiling on you,
holding you so gently because you are someone special and rare.

I wish You a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.
Send this phrase to the people you’ll never forget .
It’s a short message to let them know that you’ll never forget them.

If you don’t send it to anyone, it means you’re in too much of a hurry and that you’ve probably forgotten your friends.
Take the time!
Wishing you the very best for 2010
Just a few photos of Christmas around the world!!!!!!!!!!!
