DSCN9893LL Bean, I can’t wait

For my new sweater

Cause I have a date

To sit in my comfy wicker chair

And take in the aroma of Fall in the air

Hot cocoa, just thinking of you

Warms my heart

As only you do..

Amber, golds and browns

the best of nature’s foliage around

Could you please jump-start

For I am eager to see Autumns art..

Photo Art Friday

Good morning world! We woke up to a sunny day here in southern California. The air is fresh after a nice rain storm and witnessing another flash-flood yesterday, that was not severe. It is time for Photo Art Friday hosted by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art. She provides lovely textures for us to pick from to create our art-work. The theme for this month is WATER. I decided to go with my flash-flood photos and this is what I came up with.

pdpa Designer Select Texture Set4-002We are on the higher side of the road and so when I hear it(flash-flood) coming, I grab my camera and run across the street to capture the massive amount of water and nature’s debris  coming down. Wherever you are at, enjoy your day and the beauty around you. (:

Friday has rolled around pretty quickly. The prompt for the challenge at Pixel Dust is Graffiti…I had fun with this and should call what I came up with Far Out Friday..I made a mosaic out of a few images at Picasa.224

Then I added this photo..

of which I had already applied the texture Creative Canvas, that has become one of my favorites. I superimposed the images and then went on to Pixlr where I completed my fun with the following. I don’t have any favorites here. It was all about experimenting and exploring. I do believe that some of those that graffiti are artistic, but there is a time and place to share what they do. I added my own thoughts to these.

The prompt for this Friday was to create an abstract. I must admit that I was really challenged this time around. I am feeling rather limited with what I use for processing and am thinking that in time I would like to invest in some other form of software, but until then…these are my contributions for today at Pixel Dust Photo Art

This was my first attempt. I don’t recall which one of Bonnie’s textures I used. I mainly used the pixelate process for my images.

This scrawny cat showed up at our home one year just before we were to go on vacation. We already were at our max of four and knew we couldn’t just introduce her to them and think that all would be well. We were fortunate to find someone to take care of her. She was very thin and skittish. I named her Amelia.


For this image I used


pdpa Afternoon Walk texture

And this lovely texture which I thought really enhanced the image nicely. I again used the pixelate process and worked with the color. It turned out that Amelia stayed in the home with the people who cared for her. She filled out and turned out to be a beautiful, content cat.

The theme for Photo Art Friday is VINTAGE…This suited me just fine as I had so much fun incorporating Bonnie’s textures with my photos. It was hard for me to narrow my choices down. Like Bonnie’s husband who had surgery recently, so did mine but on his foot, so I did not get around to viewing last weeks submissions. Thank you to those of you fellow Friday artists that responded to my submissions. I appreciate your comments on my work… (: For this challenge I used the following two textures.PDPA  Old Ornate Linen Texture 300 dpipdpa Blue Missive texture

Both of these are lovely and really enhanced the look of my photos

I could not decide between the two of these.They offer a reminder of what is soon to come our way..What I do here is not complicated and done using Picasa. I don’t have steps, as I go along tweaking with this and that until it appeals to me…

I missed the challenge for last week. Too much activity and not enough time to settle down and be creative. So, for this Friday the challenge is to create an image using the prompt Connection or Connecting…I did not get to spend a lot of time on this one but am sharing what came to me.

I took this picture of these Jingle dancer’s at a Pow Wow. The link will tell you about how the dress is made. Each of the jingle’s is attached to the dress and therefore connected. The ladies also have a connection as they are competing with one another. For this image I used my photo and then two different textures provided at Pixel Dust Photo Art.

pdpa bleu en bleu texture 300 dpi


My second choice is 2012-11-042

I made this postcard and sent it to a woman in Russia. She received it and acknowledged that she likes it. We have made a connection in that manner…
