"Ask me to show you poetry in motion, and I 'll show you a horse." unknown

For this week's edition of Texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen's site the theme is 'story'. The saying that a picture is worth a thousand words can certainly apply to this picture of Ebeneezer above. He was actually trying to sniff the camera to see what it was.

And this picture of Pearl & Norman below appears as though they were posing for me. They actually seemed excited about having their picture taken and started following me around.

And one more photo of Norman's beautiful blue eye!

I processed all of the above using several of Kim's textures in various modes and opacities.

Can't decide which is my favorite...
How about you..what's your favorite?

Live your life creatively & always carry your camera~

My favorite...the two at the fence.
I think.
The first one made me smile :)

Oh wow...I love your images! The first one makes me smile. And the last two take my breath away...horses are such beautiful creatures. The textures add so much - thank you for sharing!
Ebeneezer is a handsome dude...I really think he was posing for you lady! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
Ebeneezer makes me laugh, thank you! The second horse photo is probably my favorite for beauty though.

Ebeneezer's adorable! Of course, actually, they're all adorable :)and great captures too!
Thanks so much everyone! I love them all but I think my fave its probably Norman's blue eye!

I can't pick a favorite...they are all great. I love the quote.....ask me to show you poetry in motion I'll show you a horse.
I want to see War Horse but not sure I will recover from the crying.
thanks for stopping by,

Really like the texturizing on all, and can't decide which one I like best. If I had to pick guess it would be the first one for novelty.

Great textured images, love the shot of ebeneezer.
I find myself drawn to photographs of horses more and more -- these are outstanding, Cathy. I've never seen a blue-eyed horse. Amazing! :)
Thanks so much everyone! I love photographing horses, especiallly their eyes. Very soulful. Although donkeys are cute too!
Carole, I saw War Horse and had to cover my eyes for MANY parts of the movie. My heart was racing and it was very emotional. But a very good ending.

Lovely pictures, I love especially the donkey.
Just fabulous! I love the donkey seeing that face would bring a smile everyday:)
Thanks Becky! He is a cutie!

Art Elements Component of the Month

I just love the team over at Art Elements!! Since joining I have been inspired to produce WAY more work than I would ever have created 'alone'. It really does take a village for me to get creative and work in my studio!
Every month there is a theme or a component of the month challenge at Art Elements.
Sugar skulls were the component of the month for October and was hosted by Jennifer Cameron. Jen creates beautiful lampwork glass beads and headpins. Fittingly, for October she created glass sugar skulls and distributed them amongst the group.  I also received the wonderful antique key with the glass bead on the end:-)
As soon as my sugar skull arrived I knew exactly what I wanted to create. (haha)
I happened to be working on the caged trinkets tutorial for the AE blog when the skull came so I had wire weaving on my mind. I cut some pieces of wire, flattened the ends into paddle shapes and twined thinner wire around the padddles. I ended up with a flat woven piece that fanned ou…

AJE September Tree Challenge Reveal

The theme challenge of the month over at Art Jewelry Elements was 'trees'.  I was delighted that Caroline chose trees for the month of September. Trees happen to pop up quite often in my work.
I also happen to take a LOT of pictures of trees. They are a constant source of inspiration.
What's not to like about trees? They are beautiful during every season. In fact, I think during winter they might just be at their most beautiful.
If you read my last post, you saw that I ordered some fabulous jewelry elements from blueberribeads.
The first thing I made with trees in mind were these cute little earrings using the gingko leaf headpins. I paired them with Czech glass beads and some copper washers that I distressed and aged. Can't wait to wear these!!
                                                Trees and leaves and acorns-oh my!!

The next tree piece I created was the necklace (above left & below) using a gorgeous porcelain tree pendant made by Caroline over at bluebe…

Art Elements Component of the Month for April

Over at Art Elements Jen hosted the Component of the Month for April. She is a glass artist and made some amazing lampwork glass beads with texture. I just love the colors especially when the light hits it. She said she had the 'northern lights in mind' when she created these beauties.
She planted the 'northern lights' in my mind as well. Immediately I thought about freeform peyote and creating some sort of movement of light and color streaking through the sky. I have to confess I do a LOT of bead embroidery and some peyote bezeling BUT I don't do a lot of bead weaving. But I thought this was my chance to do some practicing!
I attempted to created lots of movement/texture with the beading. I left some open spaces and also created lots of waving/rippling with changing up the bead size periodically. AND I had no idea what I was doing. Just picking up beads and trying them out. I think it worked okay.
Once I got the slightly irregular piece beaded, I needed to figure …
