Dallas Arboretum Photos

A friend and I went to the Dallas Arboretum for her Birthday, and just had a ball. I had never been, and it is so beautiful. I took lots of pictures.

I like the flower pictures, one for their beauty, and two because they give me ideas for jewelry. I am a bead artist, you can see some of my work at

I love getting cool pictures of
sculpture. I like to see if I can capture it in a way that was maybe not intended. Some large scale sculpture has such

great lines, and
nooks-and-cranny's, for lack of better words (sorry about that!). Also, if they are outdoors, they can get the most amazing texture.

I also really love any photos of just plain texture that I can get. You can do so much with a photo like that. They are great for
backgrounds for artwork, they are great torn up and used in your journals, and some of them can stand alone, and just be framed.

I painted this picture from the porch of my Granddaddy's house. It was the view at night. It is very badly done, but I needed the distraction at the time.

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

I posted this in an attempt to get it entered in a photo contest for Wired Magazine. The contest was titled "Squares". I could not get the photo to show up on the voting page, so no luck!

Blurred Art Journal

This is the front of one of my journals, Blurred Art. I have been gluing things to the front of it for years. I have had some really wonderful things donated by friends that I attached as well. I always wanted to cut a window in the front. Never have, and now the inside cover is fairly decorated, so maybe it is not an option.

This journal was the very first of my art journals. I still work in it.
Water Table was painted fairly recently in it. I have a hard time finishing a journal. I find I do not want to. They all have varying amounts of blank pages at the end, or in some cases, the middle. I might find I want to say something that is relevant to the journal!
