Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Moving Water

….thanks to Cee for hosting the Black and White Photo Challenge

I found it quite difficult to change moving water photos from colour to black and white. For some reason the amount of light in some of the photos that looked fantastic in colour were a complete washout in black and white. I tried to make some adjustments but it didn’t always work.

A “Flow” of Creative Paintings

…thanks to Rainee for hosting the 30 Day Creativity Challenge

Although Rainee has completed her 30 days I’m only on day 9. Today my creative activity was taking in the creativity of others. I made a trip to the Women’s Art Association of Canada in Toronto and took in the new show called Flow. I was truly inspired by the work of these amazing artists.

Creativity Challenge – Days 7 and 8

….thanks to Rainee from All About Words  for hosting the 30 Day Creativity Challenge

I painted a nautilus shell on day 7 but wasn’t terribly thrilled with it so I tried it again on day 8.C194D2F9-459E-4475-BE9C-355CF5DDDA8A30F67ADC-61E2-4736-A7C1-AFE400C578B0

Amazing what a difference slowing down can make. I should have listened to Lisa Congdon more carefully the first time I tried this exercise but then for most of us we need to practice and do things over and over again to get better.
