I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!

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.

Apparating Alien


Apparating Alien
As our explorers work out how they're going to get off this planet they've gotten themselves stranded on, a great alien beastie tries to work out how it can eat all of them at once ... ;oD

I've been creating a new compositing workshop bit by bit and updated my Screenflow software for all the tutorials I'm making. The best way to learn an update is to play with it, so I made a little Cinemagraph (https://photos.app.goo.gl/q8CZQEfMfVnNsEu88). I'll add it to the first comment in the comments area below -- see if you can point out all that's going on it ... ;o))).

Call me odd bird, rare bird, early bird, dickie bird ... just
don't call me your pigeon.

Definitely hiding something, I'm sure. Probably a #seagullbuttindisguise, if anyone remembers what that is ... ;o7

It's been devilishly hot here (110˚ last Friday and I don't even live in a desert ... ugh! I gave myself a heatstroke tying to save my garden). This guy looks about how I feel ... ;oD
How's the weather where you are?

Happy 4th of July, U.S.A.!!

I've decided I'm going to chill at home this evening, so this is the only fireworks display I'll have for you this year ... ;o7
(Why, yes, as a matter of fact I have lost my marbles ... and if you happen to find them, please feel free to send them my way ... :oD)
