M.I.A-What I've been up to

Dear viewers and friends,

It has been a very long time since I last posted anything on this blog. I'm sure many of you might have forgotten that this page even existed. I don't blame you. The good news is that I have returned and am ready to post my most recent works.

The road to becoming an artist is not an easy one. It requires long hours, an open mind, good spirit, support from those around you and a steady flow of creativity which can prove to be difficult when having to face life's challenges. Along the way I have learned that you need to be confident in your ideas and to trust your instincts, you have to tune the negative forces out as people will often do their very best to sabotage your progress and subsequently delight in your failure. Today I want to encourage all of you creative folks out there to stay focused and work consistently towards achieving your goals. Stay tuned for more this month.

Indian Bangle Photography. Early Morning Sun.

I've had these sitting in my drawer forever and decided this morning to photograph them. I'm starting to like making use of early morning sun as "back light" for my photographs. I used a ladder as my tripod, opened up my aperture and let her click. So here are some shots of a percentage of my heritage on my arm. (Click to enlarge.)

Nature Photos

This week was hiking week-to the south of the country we went. It was a long drive and a long but fairly simple walk; well worth it. Never have I appreciated owning my camera as much as I did that day. The afternoon was spent photographing everything. Though I did face the challenge of harsh midday sunlight and its shadows, I managed to come away with some awesome shots (well I think they're awesome). Here's a look at some of the photos I took. I may upload more later. Click to my Facebook to view more of what we experienced on the hike. Comment, follow my Facebook page and share with friends. I appreciate all the support.

The Vase- Chalk Pastel Artwork

After several layers of chalk, much blending and coats of fixative spray, my pastel piece I've been working at is complete... I think. I may go back to it and touch up a few things as always but here is a look at the final piece and the progress. My camera somehow didn't manage to capture the colour as I would have liked but it's close enough. I'd say the pigment is much deeper in real life. The next step is to frame and advertise for sale. Comment, critique and SHARE :)  
Peace n' Love.
