… time gets away from me when working on projects, especially new ones like the image above. It started out as a straight photo of the eastern part of the San Francisco Volcanic Field, added some dimension to it with a photograph from the Hubble telescope and then just started playing, adjusting colors, brush strokes and filters. I kinda like it and am thinking of a large metal print of it for my home … the photo art below is already in my home and thinking of a very large metal print of it for my bedroom … or maybe the image above? Probably pull a few more photos out to work on when I get up in the morning and see which direction I go … not a clue at this moment in time.
Time to wrap the day and as always if you see a photo in any of the emails you like, let me know … more than likely I will not get around to putting it in the online galleries … I do this more to share the beauty I see daily than to run a business … it is nice to sell my art though and that includes my cutting of gemstones and creating original pieces of fine jewelry. Life is just so great!
Time to wrap the day and get a little rest … then six shots of espresso to jump start the day and back into projects. Wishing you only good things today, but only you can make that happen!
Work as if thy task were made for thee;
Be strong as if thou had courage,
And charitable as if thou hadst been rewarded;
Remain poor if riches are dishonorable,
And carry poverty with the dignity of virtue.
When others dine sumptuously, eat thy crust;
Let love be thy guide and justice thy God—
