I've been inspired by Carlyn Beccia's new book to pick up my digital paintbrushes again. I have been playing in Painter - trying to learn - and remember (!) how the various styles of brushes behave - and even making a few brushes of my own. Here's a new art... Continue reading

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden... Continue reading

When I was growing up in northern Minnesota I spent every spare moment exploring the woods and fields around my home. There was always something new to discover - the first of the spring flowers, wild strawberries - tiny but so sweet, the song of the redwing blackbird in the... Continue reading

I am participating in the Craft Attitude Open Studio this month. I decided to create an art journal/planner to keep track of ongoing projects in a more organized fashion than little slips of paper scattered all over my studio :-) I wanted to try incorporating some of my digital artwork...

Hi Katherine! I decided to print two :-) Both have some personal significance to me. The watercolor on the beach is a photo of my husband and our niece on a vacation a couple of years ago in California. The other one I printed is the old mining buildings by the lakeshore - this is a cc photo of northern Michigan - were I attended college. I loved the contrast of red and green in that image and it was a fun way to try out lots of different brushes on the buildings. It was good to stretch my wings and try something new. Looks like you had a great time in DLand with Tangie. What fun it must have been to explore the park with artist eyes and take the time to document your time there. Mary

Where I live in Seattle we don't get much real winter weather. But I have been watching the snow and blustery weather going on in the rest of the country and remembering the winters I used to know growing up in northern Minnesota. And even though it was frequently cold... Continue reading

I love this time of the year. A whole new year stretches out before us with all kinds of possibilities. Today I've been doing some digital art journaling. The Art Journal Caravan is getting ready to embark on it's final journey - kind of bittersweet. I know Tangie will have... Continue reading

I'm recently back from a Fine Art Creative Black and White Photography and Photoshop workshop in Charlotte, North Carolina with Marie Otero. The workshop was a mix of morning photo walkabouts in the city and afternoon sessions of playing in Photoshop - exploring many techniques to process our photos into... Continue reading

Wow! Proof to me that I should save those shots I think are not worth much. Look at the beauty you've made out of this!

I need to get in the habit of checking in with your at facebook. It is not on my regular list of spots to visit. I used to enjoy sitting down with Flickr and catching up with what you've been up to, but it is not as comfy there as it used to be. I need to find a new rhythm...

I am looking forward to making a mess tomorrow too! I have to fit in a dentist and hair appointment, but I won't let that stop me!

Oooh...Experimental Tuesday. Will this be a new series? I think this really has potential - love the playful, painted look.

You did such a great job with all of these skies, Karen - it is hard to choose a favorite. These are a wonderful exploration of the quality of the light as much as they are about your walk through the city.

What an absolutely perfect quote for this image.
