Yes, it’s been awhile…It has been such a busy and fun summer, but I’m finally getting back into the groove with some new work.

Out in the garden the other morning doing some pruning and dead-heading, I was inspired by the different dried seed pods to make these collage pieces.

SUMMER ON THE BAY

ForSeatuck

This collage is for an upcoming auction to be held on a bay cruise sponsored by Seatuck, a local nature/environmental center.  A lot of different elements from my overflowing collection of postcards, maps, letters and books are used in this piece. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of collage material. Summer is here – enjoy!

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – ABSTRACT

AbstractWood

On a quick trip to the post office this morning I saw a downed tree trunk and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. The colors have been manipulated with Photoshop filters, bringing out an interesting pattern in the grain.
