“You might consider love day a consumerist ploy.You can view anything, anyway you want, that is your right. I, however consider it a heightened opportunity to highlight a love affair in which you love everyone and have compassion for all you meet. It easy to love the loveable. It is the unloveable who need your love the most. Happy St.Valentine’s day. May you inhale the fragrance of a rose, taste divine chocolates and each other !..Bliss for breakfast. The most important meal of the day. I love YOU….” ~Michael Des Barres
To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.” ~Pablo Neruda
When I moved to Dunga Brook last February I had already taken about 20,000 pictures on my iPhone while waiting for her renovations to be finished.
And I had the carpal tunnel to prove it.
Not only had I taken that many iphone photos, I uploaded them and edited them, too.
When I found Instagram, a late comer as always, I not only took iphone photos but uploaded them to iPhoto then edited them in Instagram and then put the back into iPhoto for a few more tweaks…then I found Picmonkey and all hell broke loose, why bother to sleep?
Along the way, I posted the photos to Facebook each day with a few words, usually under the moniker of Dunga Brook Diary. I now have over 20 Facebook albums chronicling my move and acclimation and adoration of central New York.
On Facebook I met am amazing group of artists and photographers, all of whom encouraged me, either through their work or their kind words, usually both.
One of my friends, Colleen Taylor, a beautiful artist of equally beautiful work, encouraged me to put my art on Fine Art America. Another gorgeous creature, Mailie Halme Brocke, encouraged me to blog.
So, this weekend, I have done both. Thank you.
I have a few things on Fine Art America, check it out with the link attached and expect more in the near future!
