A Visit to the Past

I have always loved this photograph.  I ran across it in an old portfolio the other day. I took it in college (in the 1980’s) with a 35mm Minolta film camera and developed and printed it in the college darkroom.  Oh, the good old days when I could spend an entire day printing B/W photographs in the darkroom to my heart’s content! 🙂  And the smell of developer and stop bath. Hmm…I think I just got a whif of them in my memory. LOL BWDogandShedW

The dog belonged to the farm and just happened to trot right out in front of me for a second while I was shooting the picture.  Then he happily took off down the road, back to the barn.

It is overcast and raining today, a perfect day for reminiscing…

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell

 

A New Painting – Sisters

A few months ago I posted about how I was thinking of adding these two little girls to a painting. I had created a sketch from a picture of my sister and I when we were children.  Well, before I got a chance to start working on adding us in, I received a couple of inquiries about the painting.  So, I decided to create a new painting with the two girls and give it to my sister for her birthday.  SistersforBlog

While I was painting, I had a lot of time reminiscing about all the fun walks my sister and I shared while we were looking for wild flowers.  We were fortunate to grow up in a small mill town called Hilt, located in Northern California.  We spent a good amount of time roaming around the countryside.  We had the best swimming hole! I was a total rock hound (still am) and loved going rock hunting.

Have a wonderful creative day, Janell
