seeing shapes

My painting lesson for this week addresses Shapes. So I’m seeing shapes everyone I go. It is unusual to have your vision filtered, shape-seeking.

route 7 to kripalu

This was a beautiful drive. I could have stopped so much more often to take photos. But there was a sort of pushing to get where I was going. Someday I will take a photography trip up route 7 and stop as much as I want to.

Wondering how these would look in black and white. I gave it a try in iPhoto. “Antique” effect looked better.

Accidental still life –

Calendar page picturing roses, sanded with sandpaper for a project
Dried leaves brought inside for a project
Gold silk ribbon I just have hanging around because I like to look at it

I wanted to manipulate this image, but maybe i like it just the way it is.

Now that I’ve taken the photo, maybe I can pick up the floor.
