Texture Tuesday 27 November 2012


Few things have been as pleasurable in 2012 as the chance to really embrace LEARNING about digital fiddling. Learning by DOing, by asking What If?!, and by looking, listening, and really seeing what others are DOing, then trying to DO it myself, my way, with my photographs.

I have experimented and explored and amazed myself with daring enough to know that UNDO is magical!!

I have grown fearless and unashamed of my results. I know that the more I try and fail and try again and fail again, the more I am growing a second nature about this thing I have so long wanted to know HOW-TO DO.

This last Texture Tuesday offering is my young friend Hansi on the beach in January 2010. I honestly don't know what I did except that I used kk_cherishscripted as a texture. Even saying that is a deLIGHT this morning. I love the NOT knowing BEcause when I let go of needing to know, true flight is possible!!

BE Well, friends. I look forward to seeing you in 2013!!

Soft and ethereal, sketchy yet full of emotion, this is a great interpretation of the image. Experimentation is the mother of all success and this one is truly successful! Beautiful work! Have a happy holiday season!

i have to say that i can totally relate to how you feel in regards to your creative growth within the digital art world.
i am finally feeling a bit more like i really can get some expected results (as well as a lot of surprises) when i get into the ps program and both feel delightful~!
i'm now looking for a group doing a digital art journaling challenge for 2013. if you happen to know of something that is out there please let me know.

i LOVE your image for this post. such a magical moment caught and just a lovely presentation of it~!
