Pink Alamandas

Can't believe it's been a couple of weeks since I've posted on my blog ...  I've joined Facebook and that is taking some of my time.  Not really sure how Facebook works, and not really sure if I like it or not --- we'll see.

Anyway, today is beautiful weather!  Sunny and clear, not cool enough for a sweater but not-hot, like Florida weather ought to be -- invigorating!

Went out in the back yard this morning to help N put up a golf net, and beheld this pink alamanda growing at the corner of the house.  Took some pix because I think the shadows are as pretty as the flower itself --- and also the seed pod is so cool looking!

And here is a quick pic of my work table.  Re-did a typography wood print; made the lettering darker.  Cut wood block, sanded edges, drilled hole in back.  Next step glue print to wood, then protective coating on print and acrylic paint on back and sides.  last of all will stamp my shop name on the back!

Also did some copper and pink quartz jewelry lately:

Creationist print

New print for TheSeeingEye etsy shop;  my first photo collage, which I did in Photoshop.  Love Photoshop -- it was fun!

"...he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." -- Hebrews 11:6

"...since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made..." -- Romans 1:20

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament shows His handiwork." -- Psalm 19:1

Q - What does Autumn bring in Florida?
A -  Mushrooms!  as far as the eye can see...

Looked out my studio window this morning and beheld our front yard full of mushrooms!  We've been having a lot of rain lately...   So I went out and snapped a few shots before I ruthlessly pulled them all up:

Not only mushrooms like the rain.
Here are some pix I took of a hawk last week who was just standing on top of the light pole in front of our house, letting the rain roll down his feathers, holding up his wings, and just drinking it in!
