The exhibit of right around 30 pieces I’ve completed over the past year goes up at a local gallery Friday. Yesterday the radio station reporter interviewed me about the show. It was interesting to take a look at some of the work through his eyes, and to realize that I have arrived at a turning point once again – the end of one path and the beginning of another.

This fork in the road is a good place to be standing near the close of the year. Over the next weeks I will be examining my accomplishments for 2011, and setting goals on paper for 2012. I did this last year, following Zom’s good example, and found it very helpful: self-esteem building to look back and see a bit of progress; illuminating to envision and prioritize undertakings ahead.
One of my intentions for the new year ahead is to continue learning how to push Photoshop Elements around.

Remember this little fabric sample I think I showed you the other day?
I brought the image into PSE...
and turned it into this using blending modes and filters. Quite addictive, really!
