Award – Virtual Blog Tour

Tags : 

On August 3, 2014 I was nominated by Woolly Muses, thank you, for the Virtual Blog Tour. I was supposed to post this by the 25th August, so I apologize that it is late and that is not a Monday.

These are the rules:

Compose a one-time post which is posted on a Monday (date will be given to you from whoever passes on the tour)

  1. What am I working on?
  2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
  3. Why do I write/create what I do?
  4. How does your writing/creating process work?

Answer the four questions above about our creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires us to do what we do.

Then pass the tour on to up to four other bloggers.  Get their permission first and give them rules and a specific Monday they are to post.

 


Here are my answers to the questions:

1. What am I working on at the moment?

I am working on different projects all the time. As a photographic artist I am always creating something, even if it’s in my mind before I actually get it out into print. I love it when a piece I have created fits with the Weekly Photo Challenges, but it can work the other way round too. Sometimes I find a photo challenge will inspire a piece of art as well!

The newest thing I am doing is actually offering my artwork on clothing; silk scarves and leggings. All great fun!

2. How does my work differ from others of it’s genre?

Everyone has their own creative style whether it’s writing, photography or art. That’s what I love the most about art, it is very subjective and personal. What makes my work differ from others……that’s hard to say as I don’t have a particular style. I don’t like to be shoe-boxed into any one type of thing. I love heading off in new directions, learning new things and not limiting myself in any way. Most artists strive to be identified by their particular style of creating, so because I don’t, maybe that’s what makes me different.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?

Because I love it!

4. How does my writing/creating process work?

I have various ways of doing things. For most of my work though I have an idea, I take a photograph or create a photo compilation as the essence of the project. I then use a variety of different processing/painting/creative techniques to come up with the finished piece. I never know what the end result will look like. I just know it when it’s done. Quite often the finished work has no physical elements of the original photograph left in it at all….go figure!

 


Now I would like to nominate the following wonderful blogs to complete the Virtual Tour too. I hope you will participate:

Writing Between the Lines
The World Is A Boo
Another Day In Paradise
Wind Against Current

    Hi WoollyMuses, I did do this back on August 25, 2015..LOL! But I switched to WordPress.org to intergrate my blog with my website and I added an image to the original post and updated it. I guess it must have reposted too or re-added the pingbacks or something which is good to know, as I have updated a few featured images on my older posts. Thank you for commenting!

Well done, Pennie. I enjoyed reading about what makes you tick. Thank you for nominating me to take part, but I’m going to give this one a miss, owing to time constraints, as we’re busy moving from South Africa to Florida, via England in the coming weeks. We’ll be staying with family for a lot of the time, so I’m going to have to cut down on my blogging for a while.

    No worries Sylvia, you definitely have a lot on your plate. Did you live in S. Africa for long? Safe travels and have a wonderful time with you family and I look forward to reading about your adventure. Take care.
