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 To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. 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 that this is one of my better ones. 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. Personal Links

  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.
