PINK COSMOS 1

I was given cosmos seeds this spring and grew these beautiful pink comos in the yard. I took a sprig of the foiliage, duplicated, rotated and resized to come up with the background pattern. I then blurred it a little so that the flowers seem to float over the background.

Suitable for small prints and cards. May be combined with a variety of texts.

PINK OLEANDERS 1


When I was first introduced to the "Power of Positve Thinking" by Norman Vincnet Peale, I thought I didn't need it. I thought that my thinking was already positive. I was very wrong. I would almost say that this book should be required reading.
*******
Oleanders are everywhere in Tucson. They bloom in clusters, so we don't really pay attention to the individual flowers, but as you can see; they are lovely. They come in pink, white and red. We are fortunate to have all three in our front yard.

Suitable for cards and small prints.

POPPY LINE MANDALA

This image belongs on the Brightlight Mandalas site; but I am adding it here, because I want to catalogue the quote with a text number.
*******
Jon Farle is fond of saying this and I take it as a reminder not to get too set in my ways and to remain flexible. Have you not had the experience of going to do something in your normal way and had something prevent you from being able to carry it out? So you are forced to do it differently, and come up with a new way which is better.
*******
I take it that if we will be open to guidance, an intelligence beyond our own will be able to operate through us. The trick is to get self out of the way so that we don't blog the serendipity.

PRICKLY PEAR COMBO WITH LAO TZU

I like the way the flowers fit together in this composition, but it leaves some awkward spaces on the page. This arrangement of text isn't the best, but it allows me to introduce another Loa Tzu quote. Cards & prints.

PRICKLY PEAR COMBO ON BLUE

Excuse me while I experiment with different arrangements. This is a blog in progress, not a fancy finished website. I like this composition on a wider page. Prints up to 13"x19"; also cards.
