365 Things That Inspire Me

I also do posts for my clay group, beads-of-clay.org. Twice now, I have posted pictures that I took on walks with my dogs in a park near here, 3 Creeks. I post these as creative inspiration for my fellow artists and jewelry designers. These posts have been so well received that I decided to start a blog with daily inspiration in the form of pictures, quotes and poems. These pictures will be things from my immediate environment that I find inspirational or beautiful; textures, colors, contrasts, animals, unusual things, intriguing things. A daily dose of wonder....

"Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK on these things."

"Earth's crammed with heaven, and every common bush is afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes."
E.B. Browning

It's all for Joy!

Nov 6 2010 Tree Bark Series

I'm way behind on my posts!  I worked over time and it all went down hill from there!  Catch up time...

Come take a walk through the woods with me, and focus on tree bark.  One of the things I love about taking pictures is that the camera can isolate parts of an object and turn it into something else entirely.  Where as the eye tends to take in things as a whole and is distracted by "noise" in the environment of the object, the picture can focus in on a single aspect, and the eye can analyze it in a new way.  And it is so easy to crop photos with the editing software, enhancing this aspect of pictures even more.  Just look at these fantastic textures and colors....
