Alexandra's Graduation

This is my baby, all grown up and officially done with high school. She started college in January, but did not walk in the graduation ceremony until last night. We are not supposed to take photos-so, this was done with a digital zoom and no flash. This is the best I can do until the school hired professional turns in his proof and we can see how expensive those were. Although this photo is bad, I got lucky-the guy next to me got a shot of his son's torso with someone's arm in front of his face.

Girl by Chair

I need to come up with some catchy titles-girl with chair-not very original! But, just think-I posted mid-week. That is a first. I never get to do art during the week. I am excited!!!!

My Baby Birds Leave Home

The two photos of the babies in the nest are from Monday and the other two are from today. It happened so fast. Mama pushed them from the nest this morning. I was glad I was home from work today to see it unfold. She shoved them-some plopped to the ground-some flew a few feet. Eventually they all caught on and took flight whole Mama watched from the fence. I finally captured a photo of one resting from the flight on my deck. The nest is empty-and my daughter and I are sad. We stood at the tiny kitchen window and watched and listened to these babies for days. The little bald creatures who captured our hearts now look plump and seem to all be fine. Final count was five. We already miss them!

Sunday Studio Time

My daughter got called in to work, so I had some time to myself. Decided to grab the first image from a pile and used it to make a canvas.

ATC for May Swap

The theme is Asian with a bit of pink. This is the front and back of my offering.

A New Mother

These pictures are taken through my kitchen window to a corner of lattice less than 5 feet away. The first photo is Mama Robin sitting on her nest on May 4 and the last two photos were taken today.
