Well, today I visited my blog again after a very long time; it was like visiting an old friend ... reminiscing about Arizona, my family and friends there, the always fun Bisbee that I loved to walk through and take photos ... it was all still here waiting for me. Like a diary of sorts, except it is something I have shared with my internet friends, as well as my close friends. I am so glad that when I first got my camera in 2005, I listened to my Dad when he said to start a blog - he was such a smart, intuitive guy =)
So here I am again, with one of my newest pieces ... I am still using Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop, but I've been pushing myself to expand my knowledge of all of the things they are capable of doing. It is interesting to see how my art has changed, and how certain events have altered my creativity a bit - sometimes the feeling of joy is so strong that I see it show up in my art; sometimes the pain of losing loved ones does too, and my art becomes darker and cold.
