Migraine

Been battling migraines for the last 8 years. Seems like forever. Average 2 or 3 a week, but keep on searching for a cure, or at least something that will decrease the frequency. Won’t give up.

Created this photo art piece back in 2011 to represent my Migraine.

Came across several old photos and digital art works from that year that I will post this next week or two. Hope you enjoy.

Goodbye 2017

It’s been a year like any other.Β  Many ups and downs, all of us just trying to live life on life’s terms; maybe focusing on our worries more than we should, but often reminding ourselves to look at all we have to be grateful for.

One of the things I love most about taking pictures is they are always of pleasant subjects: people, everyday objects, animals, nature, architecture, food, and so on.Β  It keeps me focused on the simple, positive, beautiful things in life like my brother’s pets. πŸ™‚

Happy New Year to everyone and best wishes in 2018!

When I came across Debbie Smyth’s One Word Sunday’s prompt of “Abstract,” I couldn’t help but go through my archives and reminisce over all the photo art I used to digitally create.  These days there are apps that do it all for you with one tap of the screen.

Boy, did I use to dodge and burn, cut and paste, mask and layer, and layer and layer and layer.  And pinch and whirl, brush and overlay, multiply and screen, distort and blur.  You get the idea.

Each piece began as a photo taken with my camera and then edited in GIMP, which is a free software program very similar to Photoshop from what I hear.  I love it.

I did these years ago, and because our style sometimes evolves over time, I imagine my pieces would look different today…or maybe not.  I may start experimenting again to find out.
