I caught a flash of movement out of the corner of my eye, and grabbed my camera before I even checked outside to see what it was, just in case. It was a baby deer (ok, yes, a “fawn”), right by our back deck!
Maybe it’s a tad older than a baby, since it was grazing and I didn’t see any other deer in the immediate vicinity, but it’s definitely really young – look how small and fuzzy it is!
I caught this lovely female cardinal sitting on a snowy branch the other day! The soft browns and oranges really come alive in this shot, which is a nice change from the classic red male cardinal that usually gets all of the attention.

Seventy-five percent fractal art, twenty-five percent photoshop, and one hundred percent digital. It’s kind of amazing how similar, in essence, the process of creating art digitally and creating art manually can be. Basically, you just keep at until it reaches that mystical point in space-time called “done”.
Subaqueous, or ‘underwater’, reminds me of an underwater crystal city.

It took me quite a while to get this artwork of layered photos and manipulations to the point that seemed ‘right’ – sometimes with art you know JUST when to stop and sometimes you just have to stop yourself and step back – both happened with this piece! I called it Golden Age, not just because of the colors, but because it has stolen time and history and inspiration and focused it to a fine point.

Thanks for looking!
I’ve been working with a newer version of my old graphics program, getting used to how they’ve changed some of the old functions and playing with the new ones. I had a nice photo of autumn trees as the sample I was playing with, and when I played with the ‘oil painting’ function, I really liked how it looked! I won’t be using this filter on everything, but the result here was colorful and swirly, and you can’t say no to that.

Interesting tidbit – some of these trees aren’t there anymore. A few got broken in half and blown over by the winds of Hurricane Sandy.
I caught this little nuthatch the other day just as he took flight from the back deck. I felt really lucky to have captured this since they are so FAST! I love the abstract feel of the blurred wings and the barest hint of detail in the tail feather area.
I found this mixed media artwork of mine mixed in with a bin stashed with all kinds of unused art papers – today must be Bonus Friday! At the time I don’t think I was satisfied with it, but time heals all perspectives, apparently – LOL. Aaaaand, here it is:
It’s a simple plant, but of alien origin – scientists aren’t even sure whether those are petals or leaves, and they have made no progress in figuring out how the detailed scrollwork and patterns got there either!
