Falling leaf

Click on photo to enlarge.

Wow, it's that time of year again!

This morning I took about 5 different shots before I caught the perfect leaf in mid flight.

Why would I do that when I could have just photoshopped one in?

Because I know I did it, I felt it, caught it and I was there
to experience
A small miracle.

It was an exceptionally quiet and still morning. I scanned the yard and there was no sign of wind. The only movement was leaves dropping off the branches quietly and floating down in a spinning free fall. They were dropping seconds apart as if they were taking turns. As beautiful as it was, it also seemed a little sad to see her loose her awesome orange leaves.

CHANGE, to survive....every living thing has to embrace it.

You might know where I'm going with this.

Always take the time to look closely for miracles. They are all around you!

You know how I love dragonflys and their meaning. Creatures of change!

I am slowly watching a miracle unfold with my daughter.

Without going into details, she has not only been embracing change but she has been shining her light on others that are living in a dark place.

She is my dragonfly girl!
She is shining on the lily pad.

I bought a few old barn window frames at Goodwill. They are double paned.

I attached my art board to the BACK piece of glass (image on the glass facing inward)
Flipped it over and painted the words "ON THE GLASS" of the other side.
There is about 2" space between the two pieces of glass and the whole thing looks 3-D.
You are looking down in to the actual art from the front.
By the way, the old frames were CHEAP!
Since the photo was taken, I've added textured glass beads on the glass. It dried clear but foggy. I also added RED glitter glue around the glass edge. Since there is so much reflection with the glass and glitter it's a little difficult to get a good photo. I will try again.

A smile can change everything!

This is a photo I found in an old folder. I gave it a background and

added a few lines. I wish I could remember where I found it so

I could give credit for the photography but I can't. I do know

that when I saw it I was amazed at the beauty.
Little man report!

The nights are getting a little chilly. I turned on the space heater

and now have to worry about "little man" roasting himself!


Couldn't you just jump in to the colors?
