I have almost completed the Ricky Tims 1st year photography course. I have learned a lot about my camera and about photoshop and composition and many other techniques. In November we went to Williamsburg and 600 some photos later, I'm still sorting out and playing with some of them. Here is one I just did this morning. The original is a photo of a window in the Capitol building. If you look closely you can see it either as a recessed window - or a window on top of a gold circle that protrudes from the wall. An optical illusion...... The second photo is playing with some highlights, shadows and mirror montage!
The first one here was for a RAFA (Rochester Area Fiber Artists). Last year we exchanged bags of goodies at Christmas and we had a year to complete something using all or most of the things in the bag. My bag contained several purple fabrics and a couple tubes of purple beads. Between the quilt top and the backing, I used everything. This is also a statement on the denial of climate change by too many people!
I have also started a series on "Doors and Windows". Here are the first works completed earlier this year.....much more on tap.
Too many business have closed. This building has been taken over by artists!
Another abandoned building - cheesecloth curtain in the window and lower corner, and greenery growing out of a pile of rocks.
