Texture Tuesday

I love the look of the sun and the rose leaves and hips showing though the glass in my front door.  It was especially nice since it was late fall and most all the other leaves are on the ground.

Texture Tuesday on Saturday

Spent a lovely day with my wonderful husband and here are some textures I found.

Texture and Pattern Tuesday

I have perhaps developed an obsession for manholes.

Texture and Pattern Tuesday

I have recently been viewing stone sculptures and discovered artist Bridget Polk.  She makes unusual and difficult stacks of stone, temporary by nature.  She then photographs them and sell the photos.  They are stunning.

I mention this because Saturday we discovered the Wire Bridge in Maine.  It spans a shallow river full of wonderful rocks.  Looking down it was easy to see that visitors had been inspired to stack stones.  I of course had to add to the number and quality of the stacks.

While we were there a large family (a family reunion?) gathered on the bridge and in unison threw yellow flowers from the bridge into the river.  It was fun to watch them (the flowers not the family) float down river.  My goal was to make a video of them as they floated but I guess I managed to do that for only a couple of seconds.

These are the patterns and textures.

Ragamuffin Scrap Animals

Like I need something else to start and not finish...

I signed up for Carla Sonheim's online class to make these little darlings.  I always fall in love with her critters.  Here is one off her webpage.

 So far I have only gotten to the first critter which is an owl.  Here is a picture of some owls Carla made.


Here is a picture of my first owl.  Be kind, it is only child, orphan owl looking for a forever home.
