Anybody who knows me at all knows that I live my life like I am go cart race on a down hill course riding in a cart with no brakes. My hands white knuckled from gripping the wheel and always on the edge of being out of control. I always cross the finish line and then crash into the bales of hay at the end of the race just in time to turn around and begin the slow process of pushing my cart back to the top of the hill AGAIN. Bless my husbands, kids and parents heart.... it must drive them insane. It's not a graceful sport but I love the intensity.
I just finished my latest race and am enjoying the slow climb back to the top of the hill. You'd think I would get tired of the cycle, but for some reason I just keep going.
In the last two weeks I have completed the entire pinewood derby races for my, flew to Michigan to teach background painting workshop, completed the local print competition, and topping it off with volunteering with the kids school art programs spring event. So, now that I have crashed through the finish line I can try and catch up on this blog. Thank you for still being here!
If you remember I have posted several times about pulling a group of photographers together to work on print competition and push our own boundaries. WOW! With the competition now behind us we can all recognize the awesome results of our efforts. As I sat at the awards banquet my heart was singing as award after award was given to the works of art created by the IMAGE SEEKERS. The power of 7 photographers working together wasn't magic... it was synergy. I am so glad we could cheer each other through this finish line..... just in time to start pushing our carts back up the hill. I can't wait to see what we can accomplish with a whole year to work with and not just 4 months.
Here are my 4 prints that were entered in to this years Intermountain PPA competition. All 4 prints merited- something I am psyched about. This first image was titled "BUSTED!" and received an 85
Below is "Galactic Bloom" which scored an 82. Thanks to another photographer... I learned this is the Passion flower. This image was captured in Mexico in february.
The title of the image below is "Try and make me!" Because every photographer has had these moments and understands kids have a mind of their own. (YES, this is a real tantrum) Score 83
