EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

PATIENTLY WAITING ON THE EASEL....a painting I'll show later...

This is from three different photos and some borders I made....combined all together. Our Elena...baby in Nest....three different photos, Elena, nest and zinnia. This is a rose photo, a bird on fence photo from DJ PETTITT, a house photo and border and grunge made with other photos.... The horse photo is a Texas sky photo last week, a neighbors horse, big trees in front from a photo while in Ohio, the word Texas taken from an old brick with the word "Texas".....then grunge edge. The "heavenly grapes" is a photo of grapes and a photo of my caladiums, a sky photo and hearts and twigs from a piece of art I did. ....and a border from a few years ago. Another of Elena....with a linen layer and other layers...then below with a bas-relief filter.... I have a painting...something different I was trying...patiently waiting in the studio on the easel.....while I am learning and playing with photos in the DJ PETTITT online class. Here are a few more of the excersizes in the photo shop manipulation class that I attempted with my own photos from around here....plus one of my grand baby in a bird's nest that was in my crepe myrtle tree. Yes, I've had fun, fun, fun! I'm not sure how I will use it with my art and paintings yet....but that will come with time.....and some prayer.....Yes, Lord....I know You are there.....and that I've neglected You during this class....but thanks for all the creativity You have created for us to enjoy and the AWESOME people you meet along the way.....You are always at work!! That I can relax in....I love Your faithfulness....Blessings to you all who have looked and hopefully enjoyed! Any questions are welcomed....

So many wonderful things can be done with photoshop. I do want to learn this. Is DJ class good for someone who has never even looked a photoshop, or should they have some knowledge of it?

I love the ones of your granddaughter, so cute in that nest, and so many different images of it.

Looking forward to seeing what is one your easel!

Mary, it is best if you know the basics of photo shop...but if you don't....it will force you to! I wish you lived near me....I would get you started....MISS the paint! Thanks for your comments too! Your daughter may know...usually young people are way ahead with computers....

Love your images and the fun spirit of play you have. Also love your prayer -- I can definitely relate. I'm glad you have this blog -- we can stay connected after DJ's class is over.
