There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot.
You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun!   Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please!
Thank you +Mari Luukkonen +Lou McCorkle and +Terri Queen  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.

This is an open event, you may add your photo at anytime between now and February 21, 2016.  Please remember only one photo, so take your time and think about what you want to submit.

I can honestly say that I was blown away by some of the posts last year and not just the photo's but the stories that went with them as well.  So I encourage you to write if you need to, it will be most welcome.

Finding your artistic voice by defining elements that draw you
Finding Your Voice, Day 5: "What's your favorite element?" Knowing this helps you clarify & define what to include - and not - in your photographs.

#28toMake  *Day 5* Receipt or event stub

This turned out to be the most challenging for me so far. It looked fun and easy and hey, just two colors. But the letters were challenging because when I write I have unexpected flourishes and I had to suppress that with every single letter. Stars are always difficult for me and the "reverse stars" were a nightmare. I thought the abstract-y race cars would be easy but I literally would just lose my place every other second and would have to reference back a hundred times just to get a few lines finished. It was a good exercise but I feel like I ran a mental marathon.
So! You should be doing this too! It's fun, it can be as easy as you want it to be, and you can pick up wherever you want.

Yes, it supposed to be fun and if you are already very busy +Ursula Klepper then I'm sure you don't need to add another thing to your life.

#28toMake  Day 4 What's in your bag
I dumped everything out of my purse and picked the most important items to draw. I found my long lost chapstick from Hawaii (and used it and it smells and tastes like Hawaii)! 
You can play too! It's not too late!

This past Saturday it was a sunny, warm 66 degrees F. People were out jogging in shorts!
The snow started yesterday and has been fairly steady since. The first photo was taken at 5:37 this evening... the second photo at 8:32.

#28toMake  Day 10 Blind Self Portrait
Today we are instructed to look into the mirror and draw ourselves -- without looking at our drawing and using a continuous line (not lifting the pen).

I tried to make it darker +Sandra Parlow -- but you are right... feeling exceedingly faded the last few days.

#28toMake   Day 8 30 Circles to Fill! 
This assignment was/is so exciting, I thought my brain would explode! I know I will be returning to this to play with some more. I was very short on time today and decided that I'd use vector images I created with my phone using Adobe Shape. (You have to get this phone app!) Everything in the circles below is a phone photo that has been converted into a vector which you can then drag and drop into photoshop CC.
There is a photo of myself, Brian's Mr. Bacon, my phone, my Starbucks cup logo, my front door and and a variety of pictures from around my  house.  

Want to play or just learn more about this fabulous, free project?

Thank you +Carla McMahon! I had to toss my first version because I used a pen that didn't work well with the paper... it just sort of ran.

I'm here to listen, to talk, to think.
Introduction
I'm here because I enjoy seeing new points of view and learning about  most anything. I am interested in how people express themselves through words, art, and photography
I love a little bit of everything - perhaps too eclectic for my own good.

No one who knows me would call me shy but I am something of an introvert. For every hour around people I seem to need three hours to recharge. 
I think this is because I don't take people lightly. I find myself trying very hard to see, really see where a person is coming from. What I've discovered though, is how difficult I've made it for myself to really share myself. That's one of the reasons I signed onto G+ ... a place where I hope that after decades of really seeing other people, that some will see me in return.
