Full Moon Part One 4/19/19

Usually my pictures are taken with the mountains for a backdrop, but I didn’t make it home last night due to events yesterday afternoon and this morning far from home. These shots, which I took through tree branches created a different effect. I like it, even though neither the branches nor the moon are as crisp and clear because the focus of my lens gets confused.

Let me know what you think. Any favorites?

Inspiration is a two-way Street

When I began this blog two years ago, I included the tag line “inspiration comes from everywhere.” I have shared my inspiration and hope that my posts have occasionally inspired others.

Last September, I heard from a friend that his wife was interested in a photograph of mine. She asked for permission to create a painting based on it.

I was amazed by her talent when I looked at her website Danielle Hatherley and was honored at the prospect. Below is the incredible painting “Summer Glow – Boulder ”

Friday night, I was able to meet her and see the painting at a lovely art gallery near Golden, Colorado. Mirada Fine Art Gallery Inspiration is a two-way Street.

Volunteer Appreciation Week

In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Week, I was able to be part of a project at the Boulder Public Library’s MakerSpace. If you follow this blog, you saw a post recently featuring some of the incredibly creative artwork that has been made there.

On Monday, a group of 20 volunteers from around the city of Boulder were able to create a laser cut Field Book. Most of the others spend their time volunteering in the parks, open space, or trails and their designs reflected those interests. I am a tutor at the library and a writer, so my design honors my love of books and my debut, ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON, which is now available at the library! If you are a patron of your local library, you can request that it be at your library too and I will be forever grateful.
