Using Watercolor Brushes to Create Watercolor Photography

I used Mindy’s watercolor brushes and course from Magnolia Textures to create these. They were fun and easy and just something new to do with Photoshop! I am still experimenting, so having fun with it when I have time. Since I couldn’t think last night about Billionaire, I worked on these pictures instead.

I took the picture of the great white heron on the walk with little one. Thankfully, she’s been very good about not scaring away the birds I’m trying to photograph. When I used to take the dogs for a walk, they would lie down while I took pictures of things. I quit taking them because they were such a nuisance with other dogs. They love little dogs and would bark to greet them. They bark at big dogs too. I would like to take them to the dog park again. Now that I’m vaccinated, I hadn’t thought of it, I can do that again!

The other picture is of an alpha male wolf at the Wildlife Center in Omaha. The one is with the original background, and the other is after I had already changed the background using a texture.  I so want to go to the reserve again! The last few years I’ve gone, it has been closed due to first snowfall, even in October.

Anyway, I’m going to try and get something done this morning on Billionaire before I have to go with my daughter to the pediatrician. I just still need to figure out how to end the story!

Sometimes it’s really clear to me by the end. This time, it isn’t. I’m sure that has something to do with having so many distractions in my life right now!

It’s so nice out this morning, but the temperature’s going to heat up again!

A Walk in the Park

My daughter told me I couldn’t take my camera with me, not my phone either, because she knew I’d take a lot of pictures, but we had a blast and I DID take my camera because I love to take pictures and enjoy them after the walk. She tells me I need to just enjoy the moment. But it’s so fleeting!

Anyway, the flying Great White Heron is the best clear shot I’ve been able to take when one is taking off. Now how can I not want to enjoy that moment over and over again??? And to share it also!

I finished edits on You Had Me at Wolf (Wolff Brother’s Story), still trying to come up with the new story for the red wolf novella. Still reading the first story I wrote 10 years ago.

Have a beautiful day!!!

Late…Late…Late

I received an email from the journalist who is writing the story on me for the university that I received my graduate degree from and so I was in the middle of responding to her when someone knocks on the door.

I figure it’s my battery operated radio I ordered for the storm, that still hasn’t arrived. That’s okay. I’ll be all set when we have another. Though hopefully we won’t have anything this bad again. I keep saying this because the flooding last year wasn’t supposed to have happened either.

It wasn’t the delivery man! My daughter showed up with baby and wanted to take a walk as she’s going stir crazy. Man, was it hot out. And muggy. And hot. We walked nearly 4 miles.

On the walk, we saw a great white heron, an impassable walkway for the baby in her buggy, toadstools, and a maintenance guy was going around to all the trash receptacles and letting out all the water in them.

Then we went to a restaurant that was open, just to get out. She’s going back to work early to deal with deliveries of food to her school district, but the kids and rest of the staff won’t be starting back until the 11th.  Too many staff members were affected by the flooding.

We donated to an animal shelter last night, and I just learned one of our local authors lost everything in the flood, so off to donate for her.

Hope your day is great!

Wildlife at Disney World

 

Ducks and a bunny, and turkey vultures!

Everywhere I looked, I saw wildlife. My camera was heavy and I left it back at the hotel sometimes, but then I always regretted it!

This great white heron was sitting on a post right by us, but I only had my phone. It would have been so much better if I had taken my camera.

The literacy signing was great and so was the Sourcebooks signing.

I’m off to work on Falcon Fae. It’s nearly done, but I’m having trouble getting into the Internet on Mac, so off to try again. 🙂

I think the fae are messing with me! Have a lovely day!

Beauty in the Sky

Great White Heron way off in the distance as we were walking. Just beautiful.

Spread your wings and have an amazing day.
