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.

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.
