Sorry to make you squirm photo purists… but… this is so much fun! It is THE perfect escape for me. I absolutely LOVE nature. Especially the animal kingdom part of nature. I LOVE the ones I can see but can’t touch. They look so sweet and beautiful, but… well… you can’t typically get close to them. Or, hug them. Ahhh, but you CAN! In my imagination and through my composite skills.
My tastes for “wall art” have evolved somewhat over the years. My heart is not quite as stirred anymore by straight up landscapes, ever how heart stopping they are. And… I have done so many portraits over the years that it’s hard to make them stand out as super special. I mean, blow up, print on canvas, hang on the wall. THAT super special. So what I am doing now is taking my favorite nature photos over the years, and my favorite portraits over the years and combining them to create an art piece that says, YES! Hang me on the wall… in canvas… HUGE. And every time I look at them, they take me to a place of sweet love for both my “babies”, and for the experiences I had taking the original nature photo.
My kids love it. Now, they are giving me fabulous ideas of things they want me to try and help me achieve. Yayyyyy! Quality time. Love Language. Resulting in art. Ohmygosh… what could be better!
