As you can see, I’m still experimenting with my portrait/visual communication ideas here. This is actually a fun and entertaining way to spend my “at home” time, but I still find myself rushing to get things done as if there is some deadline approaching.
The colorful silhouette (if you can make it out) is my 8 year old grandson who will soon be 9. I had him pose with my hat several years ago and I’m still finding a use for the images.
Anyway, he was eating candy (I seriously must enjoy watching my grandsons eat!) so I did some rearranging to make something new. It inspired my haiku as well, which was written for the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Dwindle & Ripple.
The bottom line: The future is in our hands! This needs to be a mantra right now because in these parts of California it doesn’t feel as though we have much power. We need to stay positive and know that it is there, we just have to work a little harder. Besides, love is always at our fingertips… no matter what.
Stay positive! —Janet
p.s. I’m also busy on the sidelines, trying to work out the kinks in the new collaboration site: Out of the Ashes. I hope that some of you will check it out and either join us as a contributor, or as a follower of our blog updates.
It is DAY ONE here at Out of the Ashes, a brand new collaboration in it’s infancy stage, and we welcome you to come and follow us along. Life is full of “new beginnings,” and many of our contributors have been there—oftentimes more than once. With our combined talent, creativity, knowledge and experience we hope […]
The new site is up! Thank you to all of you who have offered to collaborate—I will be in touch to coordinate your contributions very soon! It’s not as quick and easy as I would like, but that is life, eh?!
I hope that my followers will check out the new site, and follow it as well. It’s still a baby, but I hope to see it grow to maturity. I won’t make a habit of sharing every post, just enough to get things rolling.
