I love stats and if you do too, here are mine for ‘2014 in review’

December 29, 2014

trios are nice

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,400 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 57 trips to carry that many people.

a new watercolor painting and I Won a giveaway

March 24, 2013

from Laura Trevey over at Bright Bold & Beautiful‘s fun and informative blog she had a giveaway and I won an amazing print of hers.

Bright Bold & Beautiful

I really had no idea  and I even sent congrats to the winners.  I had not even seen my name down at the bottom of the poster she made.  I felt a little silly when she told me I was a winner.  How thrilling.  and then I got my great package in the mail on Friday and Wowza:

Bright Bold & Beautiful

thank you Laura.

And I’ve been working on the anemone a bit last week and finished it up.  Loving the translucently and the rich dark purples making it almost black,

Sweet Anemone

Sweet Anemone by CheyAnne Sexton

with little sparkles of white paper shining like light on the dark stamens in the middle of this incredible flower.  They call these ‘wind flowers’ as well.  I love that name.

According to the Oxford English DictionaryGreek anemōnē means “daughter of the wind”, from ánemos “wind” + feminine patronymic suffix -ōnē.[4]The name “windflower” is used for the whole genus as well as the wood anemone A. nemorosa.[5]  from Wikipedia.

I rented a borrowedlenses and ‘stirred it up’ on a little roadtrip or two

July 15, 2012

on a little roadtrip or two,

Went out lookin for ponies and watching my honey fish with this great big Series L Lens, you know one of those big white ones you see all the photogs on TV  use.   You just really wish you could get your hands on one of those.  Just to see the difference between, big money lenses and what you have on your camera (even tho you love them to no-ends)

Well I rented one and for 2 days I got to play in my backyard……

Remember When…

March 14, 2012

I talked about lamination of my prints and how easy it is to frame them this way.  Wellllll….  I sold a really big hugh 30×40 inches photograph of my Old Blue Chevy with the WaterTank..

Talk about exciting….., to sell something this big was a gas!!!!  And then when I told her about having it laminated, she was all for it, as long as the colors didn’t suffer.

Me and My Old Blue Chevy with WaterTank as a 30x40


And She LOVES it, hers that is.     “Super love this amazing photo! We are very happy with the lamination process, you barely know it’s there. This photo is awesome this large, and is the focal piece of our country chic master bedroom!!! Photos to follow soon :)) Thanks CheyAnne!”  Is her feedback.

and she also told me

“Received my print yesterday and it is stunning!!!! I cant wait to hang it. I can’t tell if it is laminated or not, but the front feels texturally different from the back. If this is the lamination, it beautifully preserves the photo!”

It was so gorgeous really big like this,  ssooo……Me and my honey had to have one too!

You can touch them and love them and they can withstand lots of elements.  All archival and wonderful to behold.

I taped it onto the wall with clear packing tape and plan on fitting molding right on top of the tape, to make it look like a standard, altho Very Large frame with a back, but it won’t need any backing.  We did notice that when you take it out of the container you better have a super flat big area to unroll it and hang it right away.  It can get kinks in it and so far those little mistakes look like part of the bangs and dings in the old truck, but I wouldn’t want one in the sky.  It would probably show up too easily.  So we hung it right away.

Leonardo is so in love with this one, he can't wait for the next one.

We think it will be this one

or maybe

and I really like this view

Are there any of them that are your favorite?  I could do this for you too.

Thank you Sarah in Arizona, for making this possible.  It’s definitely a big one for me.
