My Morning Addiction


Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature. ~Lynn Holland

When I moved from the West to the Mid-West, I wondered if the humidity would bug me. It’s doesn’t, if fact I’m glad for it. Each dewy morning I make a cup of tea, put a couple of biscuits in my pocket for Sunny’s breakfast and wander out to the tufts of long grass on the far side of the yard. They seem to hold on to each drop of dew for hours.

I get lost behind the lense enthralled with each drop, it’s that place of no time. When I finally stand up, my legs are tingling from crouching so long … Sunny waits so patiently no matter how long I take.

Wild Webs


The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web. ~ Pablo Picasso

All the colors I’m playing with in my paintings have been so stimulating, I decided to play with color in some photos…

I’m still such a novice when it comes to editing photos, I often prefer SOOC ( straight out of the camera). But I think some of these spiderwebs shots really lend themselves to tweaking … what do you think? Here are the SOOC shots so you can compare.

Which do you prefer?
