Digital Mystical Trees

 

I’ve been kind of a shut-in the last few weeks so I’ve been recreating the feeling trees make me feel. Let me know what you think. Would you like to see more digital works?

Living Truly

For the first time in my life… I feel like a true artist.

My first experience doing a show at the artwalk, “Fall into the Arts,” was such a remarkable experience for me. For years I have quietly shared my pictures with family and friends. Like whispers from my soul, my passion for nature is starting to be heard. This blog and all the wonderful comments on my posts is what allowed me to get more comfortable with showing more. For a month I prepared myself for this event and this past Friday I finally made my first step.

 

I received so much positive feedback and had never felt so alive in my life!

I am so glad I finally took this step, it may have been small but I did it! 😉 ~ ❤ When family and friends told me how proud they were of something I am truly proud of, I felt like I won the lottery.

Thank you everyone for helping me narrow down my pictures, Pam for helping me with my display, mom for giving me the courage to do this/for buying some frames, Trevor for helping me frame the pictures, and dad for posting my pics and staying with me all night. And thank you again family and friends for supporting me through all this, I could not have done it without you 😉 ❤ . 

See you all next week!

Nature Walk: 4/22/17

 

There is nothing like going to the arboretum to calm the senses. This time I took my mother with me ❤ .

 

 

When taking pictures, I made a point to get the name tags of our subjects. 

 

 

My mothers muse was the weeping Higan cherry.

 

 

These delicate pink flowers made me giddy and feel like a girly girl again, lol.

 

 

And mine was the Cucumber Magnolia.

 

 

We had others as well but…

 

 

We both came back to the Higan cherry one last time before we left.

 

 

All I can say from this experience is that when you feel drawn to visit a place in nature, follow your heart and go. And if anyone else comes to mind, they may want to go too 😉 ❤ .

 

Nature Walk: 4/17/15

 

Sometimes a sudden trip is all we need and the past is one place you can go. Two years ago I made a quick decision to visit friends in Fairfield Iowa. Before we met up, I stopped off at Chautauqua Park. The cherry and redbud trees were in full bloom and the air was filled with the sweet smell of flowers.

 

 

As blooms filled the air,  spring beauties and wood violets speckled the ground.

There were flowers almost everywhere I looked.

 

 

I must have been under this tree for at least an hour, lol.

 

 

After an hour or so at the park, I finally met up with my friends at the town square. There weren’t any flowers there but ourselves ;). See you next week!

Silently connected.

Roots run like rivers through the ground.

From one seed a tree has all it needs. Everything is here, everything is still, silent and reflecting.
