R is for photography!

The "Self Portrait"
"Foo Dogs"
"Vintage light with Blue Woman"

more of Ryder's random photos....I love the photo surprises I get when I go to download photos. Ryder is notorious for sneaking the camera and shooting his "masterpieces."


This week's creations from me, Alexander, and Ryder!

silhouette inspiration part 2

so, i keep revisiting the silhouette. how would i use it? on my ceramic work? would i paint them on canvas, wood? would they some how transform into my paintings, sneaking out here and there? then i saw this....

Although, this was created by using stencils and paint (click here) it got me thinking. thinking that maybe i just might know what to do with my images. taking this idea only using images of my kids, husband, friends, family, pets etc (that I have) would be really cool. even in black and white. maybe? very graphic. i am thinking my hallway. forget that traditional hallway of photos! 

any thoughts?

I can browse ETSY every day, wait I do browse ETSY every day! Maybe I am a little addicted. Maybe it’s a great vehicle for inspiration. Maybe, just maybe it’s a way for me to get a shopping fix without actually spending any money, you know  mark my favorites.  Hold onto them in my “fav” section on my etsy account. Its not just the abundance of talent on it that holds me captive, it’s the stories, the creations, the insight into someone else’s life and in some small way avoiding my own.
