Anemones on Governors Island

The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.

Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.

Pin Light to the Darkness

There is a campaign abroad to promote solidarity against the vile racism and violence that is afloat throughout the world by wearing a safety pin. Doing so shows that you are against racism and bigotry. I would like to see this take hold here and also have it mean that we stand against Trump. We need to find ways to counteract evil and darkness.

Pin Light to the Darkness, 11/11/2016

My idea is that the safety pin in the lamp creates lightning bolts to dissipate the darkness. I used photos of Jefferson Library and Washington Square Park taken on 11/6/2016 to create this composite.

Rose – November 1 Photo Focus

My interpretation of the rose still life by Julie Powell was created using Photoshop and onOne. I eliminated the dark triangle in the upper left and cloned out the canvas. I added a bit more cloth using cloning on a new layer and masks. Then I used a photo of mine of roses as an overlay on the cloth. Finally a bit of web.

Created for Stacy Fischer’s November – One Photo Focus

Cat Henge

I made these digital art images for Halloween in October 2000. They are composits of Stonehenge, a butterfly and a black cat. I used to have a black cat named Sooty when I was a little girl. I love Stonehenge and the ancient history of Britain, and the mythoogy of pre-christian celts and druids. An enjoyable historic novel is Sarum: A Novel of England by Edward Rutherford.
