FLOWERS TO BRIGHTEN OUR LIVES

I have been so busy with oil painting and posting paintings I have been working on, I missed the one thing I used to do, photography. I have not actually missed it because I must do it to post about oil painting. I have neglected it in such as it is an art form in its own right. Today I thought that I would post a selection of flowers, which I had taken for my previous blog of ten years, Heritage Basket Studio. The blog is still online and covers a vast array of topics including, art, basketry, seat weaving, chair caning, food/recipes, the Old Order Mennonites of Dayton, Virginia, gardening, and of course photography for all of it. Please take a look.

What spurred me on to this today was Cee’s Photo Challenges, I followed her for years, Cee’s site I always like because she has photo challenges daily; the work much like “Writers Prompts”. Often times as writers, photographers, artists we get stuck, just as in the problem of “writers block” sometimes all you need in the area you are working in is a simple suggestion or prompt to get you moving again, an example would be as simple as “green” for art, “mason jar” for a writer, “curving lines” for photography. Simple things to get you thinking. On Cee’s blog she has FOTD! (FLOWER CHALLENGE OF THE DAY). I have been stuck this week on what to write a post about, while on her blog I came to FOTD! I just did not have time this week to get out and do any photography, however in wanting to post on her blog a flower of the day, i have thousands of pictures, in which I can post to her blog as well as write for Sojourns Today!

    1. HI CEE, YES, I AM SORRY I PUT THE COMMENT IN THE WRONG PLACE. I WAS ON YOUR MAIN CHALLENGE PAGE & JUST HAPPENED TO NOTICE THE FOTD ADV IN THE SIDE BAR. I CLICKED IT, AND READ THE RULES, BUT ON THAT PAGE I DID NOTICE ALL COMMENTS BEING FROM OCT. 2018, AND IT DID NOT HAVE A COMMENT BOX TO ADD TO, SO I WENT BACK TO THE MAIN PAGE. I WILL DO IT RIGHT NEXT TIME. THANKS TO YOU, I GOT TO MAKE MY POST & USE SOME OF MY CAJILLION PICTURES! YOU ARE WONDERFUL CEE! I DO USE YOUR SITE LIKE USING WRITERS PROMPTS! 🙂
