Some New Work..and Our Week...


These four little pieces are 2" x 2". They will come framed in sweet little frames and will be available on my sale blog this weekend. I kinda liked the little dragon myself...

We have alleys behind most homes here in the garden district. People put their garbage out back instead of the front. While strolling with the kiddos this weekend we found that someone had thrown away this geranium. Granted it was beaten up and needed a bit of loving - but clearly still alive. So we snagged it and took it home, cleaned it up and look!! Who would throw this away???

It was a very busy week here..I had a house full of big kids. As I do not put some of my kiddos faces on line at their parents request ..here is the backside view. I really wanted to show you the fronts making really silly faces..but this will have to do....

So...I had to show a few macros that really pleased my eye this week. Here is a honeybee.

The inside of a Hollyhock - I just liked the way the light came through this one..

And...Nonni's beautiful hair. Not sure why this appealed to my eye..it just did.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! Namaste, Sarah

Sarah,

The Hollyhock is an award winner -- too spectacular. I can see why you love Nonni's hair ... don't we all wish we had hair like hers? !!!!

Your art is adorable!
There is something sweet about these macro shots and that geranium looks marvelous to me!

Holly said...

It appeals to you because very rarely are we able to depict movement, and that's what the light on her hair implies.

HOLLY approves of the hollyhock!

And, she loves coming here to visit!!

That Hollyhock is excellent Sarah.
The centre is like whirls of cotton.
Enjoy the weekend.

It appeals to me as well. I think it is the color, lighting, texture, and flow. Lovely!

I, too, love the hair shot! It's beautiful -- looks like waves AND the forest, somehow.

Have a good weekend!

Sarah,

The pics are gorgeous!! I was just thinking the other day about how much I've gotten away from photography. At one point, I never left the house without my camera; these days I'm lucky if I can find it at all! Have a wonderful weekend.

xoxo
