I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Another Angel Gets Her Wings

Another Angel Gets Her Wings
OK, not those wings! ... Laurie Rubin appropriate wings ... ;o). If you caught my post yesterday, (https://goo.gl/NnK1mu) where I explained about dragging Karen Hutton and Laurie, along with lightdancer extraordinaire Sassi Sassmannshausen out into the cold (well, it's Summer, so not that cold), dark (well, we were in the parking lot of the hotel, so not that dark) night and forced them to stand for hours (well, it was seconds really, but I'm sure they thought it was hours) while I stumbled through my set-up with the long-exposure and the PixelStick (www.thepixelstick.com/). I'd made wings for them both ... butterfly seemed to suit Laurie, nature-photog phenomenon that she is.

I admit (sheepish grin), I embellished it a "skosh" ... ;o) ... because Laurie is a magic woman and I had to make sure that her true self was on the represent here, ya know?!

Thank you so much for your patience, Laurie!
I just adore this woman ... and, I've been hanging out a lot with her of late ...
A little announcement coming up soon (with prizes!) ...
