"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!

Component of the Month Design Challenge

Over at Art Elements Caroline created the most beautiful starry bead sets for August's Component of the Month Design Challenge.
Below is the bed set that I received. The photo doesn't do them justice. The lustrous finish is just gorgeous and those stars on the central bead are brilliant.

I received these beads while I was working on a tuturial for etching brass bullet casings (you can see the dirty fingers in the above photo). As soon as my bullets were etched I knew the brass would look really good with these beads!
So I created a tassel of brass chains and seed beads to dangle from the bullet shell then added the starry bead at the top.
Once I create a pendant whether it's bead embroidered or a tassel type pendant, I am always torn about how to finish the necklace portion off... Of course I knew I would use the other 2 beads but I didn't know whether to use chain or more beads or leather etc etc etc.... Too many choices.
I ended up creating just a short beaded porti…

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 …

May's Component of the Month

Over at Art Elements it was Lesley's turn to host the Component of the Month. She made these gorgeous ceramic cabochons and pendants with the impression of a cross section of a shell. Just love the earthy look and shells are one of my favorite things!
I failed to take a photo of the one I received but as you can see from the photo below it was one of the cabochons with the darker glaze with the touches of green pooling in areas--yummy!
I knew I wanted to pair it with either more shells, or rocks that would keep it beachy yet earthy.
Out of the millions of sea shells I have I could not find ONE that looked good with these darker shades in the glaze. I also wanted to enhance the circular shapes by using round shells. I tried several different colors of snail shells-nope didn't look right. Tried some pebbles but they were too black and too blah. So I found this fossilized coral cabochon in my stash and decided to use it.
It wasn't circular but the starburst effects in the c…
