I think dreams are carried on the wind by one of these.
Lighthearted fun. Easter hats come to mind--if you're old enough to remember those days!
When heaven came down and touched earth, changing everything, forever.
Solitude refines the soul.
“Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different...” --C.S. Lewis

Already the heat of summer is making me long for my favorite season--autumn. This image was made with a new technique for me, starting with paint work on a gelli plate and the results taken into the iPad for the rest of the process.
Just because it makes me happy. That is, sometimes, enough.
Sometimes we want to experience things from the usual perspective. But life has a way of making us look at things from "down under" and we find that, after all, there is beauty there, too.
The inside of an old pocket watch, a window, and a bunch of old hymns glued to a board at a flea market. Old hymns can shine a light through the window of the soul.
Old things can be a thing of beauty, made even more so by the heart-tug that goes with looking upon them.
For this image I used my own photoshop brushes, handmade with tempera paint. Someday I'll post about it.
I recently returned to this same old hotel, only to discover the door all boarded up and the opportunity to photograph it gone forever--a good lesson that every moment should be seized and not taken for granted.
The last few years have brought some unexpected storms my way, but through it all, faith tethered me close to the rock that is higher than I, and my praying friends uplifted me. Thank you, dear friends...
