You stalking me?! Thanks very much! I love that humming bird photo! I've been trying to capture the birds around here with my camera, but they are just too fast for me. I'll have to do a 'sit very still with camera in hand' session, and see if I can't get some of the little beauties. Hope you enjoy my website!

Cheers
Tracy


Tracy - I love to stalk like-minded folks. LOL. I think I found you on Facebook. Redwood City? Really? I live in Scotts Valley, recently in San Jose. Hubby still works over there. Small world. I got into photography in order to ID the birds in our yard. We had a teeny tiny lot in San Jose that I converted to native plants and the bird population exploded. But they were too fast for me so I learned how to photograph them in order to ID them.



Tyler, Thank you. That's my Zoey. Sometimes a great model. Othertimes, not so much. Hardest dog I have ever had (we always do rescues) but she has taught me how to be a better dog trainer.

These are some of my best cell phone photos. Sometimes the opportunity is there and a phone is the only camera in sight.

I've gotten quite sculptural with some of my hedge pruning. The last photo has been part of many of my ads.

This tree frog was on a lawn that I cut. He was the only one that headed the wrong way when I did a wildlife sweep.

Dale, you're so right. We have to grab whatever means to capture that we can. I have been challenging myself to get better with my cell phone camera as it isn't nearly as heavy as my Nikon. Love that one of the deer.

Some of the deer in this neighborhood have become conditioned to my presence. When they see my truck or hear me trimming trees, they come running. A neighborhood with lots of deer tends to have better quality forage up high. They really like the tips of fruit tree branches.

The Robin and Jay both took advantage, when I dug a pathway and turned up thousands of ant larvae.

We had some amazing sunsets in Parksville Last Summer. And artist who paints sunsets, got me to send this one to her phone. She often paints from a photo.

Arbutus or Pacific Madrona have awesome bark.

okay, trying to embed these using the grey button above but not sure if it will work. Nope. Attachments seem to be the only way.

It's incredibly handy to have a partner that's a blacksmith! He often uses his skills to make the most incredible tools with a beautiful feel and look.  Below are dirt daggers that are my very favorite tool!
check out his art - couldn't be luckier!

I approach plant breeding as a form of art, and not as a science. So I take artistic license and pleasure in the varieties that I develop.

This squash was a plain old boring green when I started with it. I'm expecting to add pink into the mix next growing season.


I would feel so bored if my corn was only white or yellow.


Beans have to have visual appeal about them, and a pretty background...


Butternut quash would look horrid if they were all the same shape.


My tomatoes really, really, need to have huge showy flowers by the time I am done with them.


Yup. I definitely have to have lots of different colors, shapes, and sizes in just about everything that I grow. The artist in me requires that of my plant breeding projects.

Tyler,
Those little mousie eyes are so realistic. They are the same ones I saw when I opened my compost tumbler recently. I couldn't spin the tumbler for weeks while it was "the mouse house". The H said, "I knew what you were going to tell me when you mentioned 'Those eyes'."

Do you sell your artwork? If so, where can I see more. They're lovely.

Yes, I sell my art.  You can see more examples of my work here:  http://imagination-heart.deviantart.com/gallery/33561114/mixed-media   ; Some of these may be available for sale, or I can do work on commission. You can message me here on permies or through Deviantart.   Thank you for your interest!

Are the magnets strong enough for therapy?  Those would look better on the wall of my treatment room than the plain ones.

To me the magnets seem strong, but they are small and encased behind a layer of fabric, so I don't know if they will work for therapy.

I like to paint pet portraits.  Here is a picture I recently painted of my sisters dogs Bella and Gretta.  They live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  I hope you like it. I am not sure if the picture will post or not.  I did not see it in the preview.

Kate Callahan, nice work with the dogs.  The one on the left, especially, makes me think she's a fun-loving goofette.  Over the years, I've painted many portraits of my friend's dogs, and thought I could do pet portraits as a sideline.  I was mistaken--without knowing the dog personally, I find it difficult to convey the personality.  So I'm sticking to dogs I know.

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.  I don't really know my sisters dogs on a personal level as we live pretty far from each other, but the one on the left is definitely a fun-loving goofette according to my sister.  Painting is a God given gift and I really enjoy it. It is a form of meditation and often when I am done, I look at the work and think to myself, how did I do that?

been doing epic amounts of craftwork, especially beadwork lately, thought i would share some of the pics...

took a lot of pics for listing on etsy.com, but before i could post them up pre christmas time, i sold most everything i had photographed before even getting to list! well still have a lot of stuff to list, once i get another big photo session done of my latest work..

already sold all of the pieces i made in this style -->











will have to make some time to make some more, but the spiral stitched straps take quite a while so i havent yet made any more with those amethyst pendants...
do still have a few left that i did with abalone centerpieces..





and quite a few i did with no pendant, just the spiral stitch








also made a ton of rainbows!







did a couple of commissioned pieces of extra long rainbow earrings, and decided to make a few more that way-->



liked these so much i made a duplicate and been enjoying these for myself -->



well thats probably more than enough for now =)
procrastinating a bit to list what i do have left to list on etsy...if i finally get it all listed up in the next few days i will remember to come back here to drop a link...
