Hows about having some fun with your camera?

If you hadn’t heard yet, Bonnie McCaffery, a well know quilt artist, quilter & teacher has started a new blog. That’s going to be interesting, I’m sure you’re thinking. Judging from her other – websites, FB and so forth, they are all interesting, entertaining and informative.

But whoo Nelly, this is not going to be a blog about quilting. Yes, you heard me right. She is branching out in a new direction, as to content, on this  new one. I will explain. If you have been following her online you will already know she is a skilled photographer. I regularly enjoy her beautiful photos, posted from time to time on FaceBook. This blog will feature photography, in particular improving our skills in taking photos. The blog I Photo A Day, proposes to do just that take one photo a day and with frequency improvement will follow. I understand there will be opportunities to share, discuss and make improvement.

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.

  1. This is a truly amazing set of photos from which I can clearly see a quilt developing. Plum blossoms and moss squares–wonderful and lyrical, somehow!


    1. Bonnie. Thanks for the heads up on those links. I’ve got them saved.
      One question, when are we doing the online discussion?{when we have bit bigger group for more input i guess. I know there are several interested already].
      When does the week start with our new assignments? I checked a few times but it probably is this weekend.I have not done last weeks assignment yet,and it was such a good one,thanks for the quality info.
      But there has been rain here and I needed a subject and I don’t have any white outside walls…so I’m still working on it. I know excuses excuses,”The dog ate my homework”.
      Like many people I don’t think about setting up the shot and the conditions, I just think about the image I am seeing in my my viewfinder. With a few exceptions, like back lighting, avoiding direct sunlight, facing the subjects into the sun, that sort of thing.
      What day are the new assignments given?
      Well as usual I’m blabbing away, so I think I’d better stop now. I’ll check the links right now..
      Ps..Being a single Mom is the hardest thing we can ever do, I could write a book on that topic. But Bonnie, you’re doing a good job judging from the faces of your family in your pictures.There is love on those faces,y, you’re doing good job. There is love, connection,and peace on those faces.
