It is said that reading takes you to far away places in your mind and let’s you experience a place without moving from your chair. I feel the same way about painting and creating. I can choose to go to Paris, France for instance. I can immerse myself in colors and shapes from any time and place. Looking at this view of the Eiffel Tower “takes me there” in a way. It is such a magnificent structure that I feel I have enhanced in my art. This piece is a composite painting using a vintage post card and layers of other imagery. My choice of nebula brings to mind a timelessness and connectivity of all. I can see this place…and if I close my eyes, I can feel it too….

One of my camera club members recommended using a flash, however, I don’t own one. He was going to explain all this at our next meeting Thursday. It might be something I can get in the not-to-distant future. Someone else suggested I get a real flower (one that hummingbirds like) and put it on top of the feeder with a tiny bit of sugar water on it. By doing this I can (hopefully) capture the hummingbird with the flower in the shot instead of the feeder. I thought that was so clever. Maybe I will try that sometime.
If anyone has suggestions on how to take hummingbirds, I’d love to hear. In the meantime…here’s the little guy….or girl…
