This week’s task was to alter Kim Klassen’s beach photograph. It always feels a little bit “wrong” to take one of Kim’s beautiful photos and change it – below is Kim’s original and then my version.
I love this quote of Eleanor Roosevelt. I tried to give Kim’s photo a dreamlike feel. The right side is a pencil sketch idea of a dream and, moving to the left, the realization of that dream. The pencil sketch technique is in the Sept/Oct issue of Adobe Photoshop Elements magazine.
My StyleI don’t know that I have a style, but I do like taking photos of the plants and wildlife in my backyard. Below is a favorite of mine – a wild bird bath party.

I’ve been on the look-out for an old dressmaker’s form, or some other structure, that I could dress up with scarves and jewelry to photograph.
Last weekend my mom and aunt were planning a trip to the flea market. I asked my mom to keep an eye out for a form that might work for me.
These two clever and talented women made one! I cannot believe that they made this!
First they tea stained the fabric and created a pattern; they sewed and stuffed the body. And then they crafted a wooden base from a broom handle and scrap wood.
Truly an amazing treasure!
