Weekly Photo Challenge – Harmony

Tags : 

When I think of harmony, outside of a beautiful melody, I think of peace. If you can learn to maintain a true sense of peace within, no matter what is going on around you, I believe that a harmonious life would be your reward. There are many symbols which have been used to represent peace

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rule of Thirds

Tags : 

I have not had the time to post anything for weeks so I am truly delighted to be able to participate in this week’s photo challenge. This photograph was taken at Niagara Falls, but unfortunately this seagull was flying directly over the car park. Ugly tarmac was not something that I wanted as a background

Travel Theme – Illuminated

Tags : 

In light of (no pun intended) the major power outage that Toronto residents suffered after the ice storm just before Christmas; I felt the above artwork was perfect for this week’s theme…illuminated. As we all know, it is so easy to take every day things for granted, until it is taken away; then we realize

Weekly Photo Challenge – Hue of You

Tags : 

I created this artwork very late last night for a fun competition (creating a photo to look like a LeRoy Neiman painting) but it really does fit perfectly for this week’s challenge as the hue of me! Firstly, I painted this with complete childlike abandonment with no regard for colour, keeping within the lines or

Travel Theme (Big) – Full Moon

Tags : 

I created this artwork yesterday, inspired by the full moon, which was also a Blue Moon, and realized it was a great fit for Ailsa’s travel theme this week. The moon’s surface area is about 14.6 million square miles, which is not quite as large as the continent of Asia (17.2 sq. miles), however I think you would agree it is pretty

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow

Tags : 

Dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, after living on earth for 165 million years, foreshadowing the growth of larger mammals and the rise of the human race. Within the first five million years of the Paleocene Epoch, large  mammals had appeared for the first time. Some of them were the earliest  members of modern groups, including

Travel Theme (Wild)

Tags : 

I took this photo of a Marmot (Ground Squirrel) in May. He scurried out from behind the trees on to the rocks by the lake and very graciously remained still long enough for me to get a shot. As part of our wildlife he naturally jumped to mind for Ailsa’s travel theme this week. Squirrels and all their family members are considered rodents, but I still

Travel Theme (Tilted)

Tags : 

I tried to find something a little different for Ailsa’s theme this week and stumbled upon this shot from my visit to England a few weeks ago. I realize this looks like the result of the angle of the camera, but it actually was the horse. There were two horses in this particular field and they

Travel Theme (Ripples)

Tags : 

When you think of ripples the most obvious thought is water, so even though my post this week is really not very original, the following images sprang to mind for me. The Polar Bear swimming on his back was making huge ripples over and over, but by contrast the ripples surrounding the swan are very subtle

Message in a Bottle and Lucy

Tags : 

Have you seen the movie Message in a Bottle? Well I was reminded of that movie today. We recently lost a very special family member, our loving cat Lucy, who was with us for 14 years. The photo of her above was taken the last New Year she was with us and as you can

My First Attempt At Digital Art

I love writing, photography, making videos and using software to create different effects with photographs etc. mostly just for fun and social media posts. But a few months ago I saw a wacom tablet and pen on sale in Bestbuy, so I bought it, as I had always wanted to try one. Well one thing
