Temptation - Digital Art

Digital Art
What an Angel! Doesn't that expression just make you want to hand over all the cookies and candy? We are fortunate to have lots of little ones in our extended family. Having them around at Christmas is such a treat! Click on the image for a better view. You can receive my latest blog posts in your inbox. Just go to the box at the top right of my blog to subscribe.

Pigeon Point Lighthouse - Digital Art

Pigeon Point Lighthouse - Digital Art
We flew in the Fall of 2007 to San Diego for the wedding of dear friends. After the wedding, we rented a car and over the next week traveled from San Diego to San Francisco. Visiting the Pigeon Point Lighthouse was one of the highlights of the trip. Near Santa Cruz, it is a stunning sight against the California Coast as you approach it. It is one of the tallest lighthouses in America and has been guiding mariners since 1872. The keepers quarters has been restored and is now utilized as a hostel. The clean lines and vintage buildings made this a natural for a transformation into digital art. If you ever get the chance, go visit this historic landmark. Click here for more information. Watch this blog for more of the California coast images!

Chaos!

Digital Art
This digital art image was created for a member of Organized Chaos, a local softball team. These guys love the game and have achieved a nice balance between the spirit of competition and the joyful camaraderie that makes for a great adult recreational team. The original photograph was taken by my daughter. It was delightful to take it a step further into digital art. Doesn't this one just make you smile?

Looking Forward to Spring! 914 Porsche

Digital Art - Porsche 914
I took this shot last spring when we got the Porsche out of the garage for its annual preparation for the spring and summer season. My husband had just washed the car in the side yard so I got a couple of shots to work with and had fun giving it that edgey, creative look that I love to do. Digital art is a great way to create a keepsake from that digital photo of an important event or special possession such as our 914 Porsche. My husband loves this one!

Wintery Dock

I love the snow and overnight we received a light dusting which turned everything into a magical feast for the eyes. As soon as it was light, I grabbed my camera while the ice crystals were still in the air and went for a walk. Several shots begged to be more than simple photographs. This digital art is the result of one of those shots. I hope you like it!

The River Bench

We are fortunate to live on a road that dead-ends at a beautiful river. I often photograph the dock and river and sometimes just sit on this bench and enjoy the beauty of nature. This morning there was a light dusting of snow and everything was frosted with ice. I grabbed my camera and went for a walk. This shot of my favorite bench was a perfect candidate for digital artwork. I always enjoy working magic with photographs and this one was especially fun. I hope you like it!
Commissioned digital artwork is amazingly affordable. Click here for information.

This watercolor painting is the project for the class. It's a scene from the docks right there at the Center on the Pocomoke River. You can click on the painting for an enlarged view.

Click the image for a better view
During the holidays, we met up with family members at a favorite central location on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. We had lunch at the restaurant at Bay Creek. As always, the meal was delicious and I couldn't help but snap a photo of this luscious desert. It was every bit as delicious as it was gorgeous! See that little cup of chocolate mousse? Even the tiny cup is made of luscious chocolate! Happy New Year to all of my friends and thanks for subscribing to my photo blog! Best wishes for a fabulous 2009!
