Roses and Tablecloth (Digital Print)

Yesterday I used Painter's "capture pattern" controls to create a pattern from a 2007 photo of roses on a plaid tablecloth. Tonight I am posting a "digital print" that I made, using that pattern. (I call these "digital prints" because the process reminds me of printmaking.) I loaded the pattern pen with my new "roses and tablecloth" pattern. I used magenta, and made the pattern pen as large as possible, and then made a few brush strokes, which kind of reminds me of using a brayer. I posterized the result to bring out additional color.

Many Rose and Tablecloths

Today I used Painter's "capture pattern" to create a pattern using my posterized photo of roses on a plaid tablecloth. I like the pattern, and used it to fill this image. I am going to use this pattern to make some "digital prints".

Tree Removal (February 5th)


This video is the last of my photography of the February 5th snowstorm. I started the day with a video of softly falling snow, but by the end of the day, the heavy snow had taken down a tree across the street.

Big Tree Down (February 5th)

On February 5th, we had a big snowstorm, and I took pictures most of the day, starting in the morning when the snow seemed very light. The snow fell faster and heavier throughout the day. My little snow narrative took a surprising turn because around 3:15 PM, a beautiful old tree came down, just across the street. I didn't hear or see it happen, but found out when a neighbor posted a picture on Facebook, showing the tree completing blocking the street in front of our house. I went upstairs to get a good look, and took this picture of the tree, already being removed.

Late Afternoon Snow (February 5th)

Here's another photo that I took during the February 5th snowstorm. I took this around 3:30 pm, from an upstairs window. I liked the look of the snow on the tangled branches.

Early Afternoon Snow on Dogwood Tree

Here's another photo of the February 5th snowstorm. I took this picture around 1 PM. I liked the way the heavy snow looked on the dogwood tree. Today I cropped the original photo to get this composition.

Late Morning Snow

I took a lot of photos during the snowstorm on February 5th. I like this one, taken late morning from an upstairs window. The snow was starting to get heavier.
