    Edward Weston Quote on Composition

    This quote by Edward Weston made me think about how I take photographs. I think there is a point in your progression as an artist, when composition… the rule of thirds, golden spiral… all becomes part of how you see and how you frame your work. What do you think? And, where are you on this path?

  • Motivational Monday: “Sales Don’t Make A Show”

    Today is Joan Mitchell’s birthday. Ms. Mitchell was an Abstract Expressionist painter in the 1950’s who was known for her use of bold colors and sweeping brushstrokes to create paintings inspired by nature. So let’s celebrate the day with one of her quotes. If you want to read more quotes, ArtNet NEWS published a series of Mitchell quote on her birthday a few years ago. HERE is the link. (And, yes. I know she did not like white. She probably would not approve this graphic I created. I, however, love white. After all, white is the presence of all colors.)

    Today is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. We celebrate the birth of the Civil Rights Movement leader here in the United States as a holiday. Every year I plan to join a gathering, a walk, celebrate with a day of service to others, something, and yet, the day slips by before I remember that I never scheduled a way of recognizing the day. This year, I planned ahead to join a walk and day of service. However, the  “feels like” temperature outside is predicted to be in the teens… nope… these pictures will have to do.

    (In case you are wondering, these images are from a visit to Washington, DC a few years ago, which was the first time I visited since the Memorial was completed.)

    Happy Birthday Dr. King!

  • Motivational Monday

    Happy Monday my friends! This quote reminds me of the game show where you choose what is behind door number 1, door number 2, or door number 3.

    Wishing you a week of good, careful choices.
