Happy Easter

"Easter spells out beauty,
 the rare beauty of new life."
              ~S.D. Gordon

    I want to wish everyone a beautiful and happy Easter! Spring really is around the corner - today I almost managed without a jacket! Walking around the local farmer's market I loved to see all of the flowers for sale in their little pails and the Easter treats laid out in their brightly colored wrappings. I hope that your easter weekend is filled with family and fond memories. Here are a few spring colors for you to enjoy! ...

Green Dreams

"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling
on the sunshine..."
           ~Frances Hodgson Burnett
                  The Secret Garden

    I can't stop dreaming about green. Green grass, flowers, sunshine... and yet it keeps SNOWING!! I am told that March is a snowy month but I can't believe that mother nature intended it to be so. We are supposed to be coming up on the first day of spring and I am more than ready for it. To keep my spirits up while I wait (impatiently) for spring to unfurl her colors I have taken some green photos. These are a few treasures in my home that were obviously made by artists who share my love for springtime. Let's hope that we don't have to wait too much longer...

"The past becomes a texture,
an ambience to our present."
                ~Paul Scott

    These last couple weeks have flown by with very few spare minutes. I have had this post ready for a little while and just haven't been able to sit down and post it! I took some pictures in february that seemed to be mostly detail shots taken very close-up and put them in a file not sure what I would do with them. I thought they were pretty though and started to play with them adding layers and textures and overlapping images until they turned into something special. I love to see what my camera does to my everyday pretty things. Sometimes I click the shutter without really thinking and later when I look at the photo I don't know how I managed to capture that particular ray of light or that single soft color. Life is made up of so many textures overlapping one another and when you stop and really look you will be amazed at how beautiful your world is.
