My plane leaves for Australia in just over a week! I'm so excited to see everyone, and soak in some beautiful Australian sunshine.
Along with journal and painted photos classes, I'll be teaching a collage class using photos and acrylic washes. My goal when creating this class was to incorporate photos into a collage with a flowing, painterly look, but without the need to learn how to paint, or buy a lot of supplies. Since scanning, I've added a hanger made from a garage sale necklace and beads. The base is a 10"x12" vintage book cover.

Here's another painted Towhee photo:And the unfinished Towhee I posted a while back, now finished with added detail and words: It's been so rainy and cold lately, that I haven't been out with my camera much, so I don't have many new photos to share.
This Hawk visits our back yard frequently and I've been able to snap a few shots of him through the kitchen window.
And this gorgeous Owl was napping and let me take some photos of him while in Tule Lake, CA. As I watched the owl, I heard a covey of California Quail scurrying by right behind me, and couldn't believe it when this guy hopped up on a rock and posed perfectly as he called out chi-ca-go, chi-ca-go over and over. I think everyone is familiar with that sound, made famous by old western movies, but not everyone knows what bird actually makes the call.
