This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice & be glad in it.
When I opened my emailed yesterday, I could hardly believe that my photo had been accepted in a juried photo exhibition at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery in Melbourne, Florida. I, like many artists submitted our work to be considered but only 64 pieces were selected and mine “YES MINE” was select. So excited – the reality is still sinking in!
Just the thought that something I created will be on display at an Art Gallery is both exciting and overwhelming. I’m attaching a similar work but the original will be on display from September 5th – the 27th.
Awards will be announced at a reception on the evening of Sept 5th between 5:30-8:30pm. So if you’re local let me know if you’d like to attend.
God’s plans for those who love Him are beyond what eyes have seen, ears have heard, or what our minds can conceive! 1 Cor 2:9

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve committed to my improving my photography skills.
So, in July, I chose a slightly different take on a still-life project. I started with some frozen lemons & kiwi; the lemons didn’t quite have the transparency I was hoping for. However, I really liked the way the kiwis turned out after editing – the color & detail in the fruit. After cropping and a few minor tweaks, below is the edited version of the “kiwi.”
The settings I used for this shot were: ISO 100, f13,1/320 sec & 46mm focal length.
Then, re-discovered my Wacom Bamboo (which I have had for years collecting dust) and having been using it to edit my photos. I particularly like the brush strokes used to edit this picture. I was able to remove the distracting power lines in the picture.
Have fun with your pictures and ….give it your best shot!
The Master of Life gives me strength to make through life – one end to the other.
