An Exhibition!!!!

Thanks to :iconfenifire: for the motivation to actually write a new entry, I should really anyway but am easily distracted, for once with fair cause!

So, About to open a small but well filled exhibition at RHS Rosemoor, a mix of wildlife, flower and landscape pics with the odd ghost too! I'll be there most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Weekends apart from one week, if you would like to come to see me then I'd love to see you, just get in touch if you want to be sure I'll be there!

And when I am not in the exhibition (i.e. before Rosemoor opens and after 5pm) then I'll be out wandering the gardens, playing with my new toy, a 100mm macro lens, which so far has only been used for taking pictures of baby Tawny Owls....obviously!

Baby Tawny Owls? Yes! A neighbour found a baby one and brought it back home as she was afraid it would get attacked on the ground, but, baby Tawnies walk out of the nest and along a  branch before falling off onto the ground where they get fed until they can climb back up. So, if you find a baby Tawny Owl then leave it there or make sure it is up on a branch where it can climb further up....but, the baby we put back up, stayed on the branch until I went back to check on it, then while I waited the adult appeared and stayed at the nest for ages, before flying over me and perching really close, it hooted, and the baby, who had been asleep until then, called back before falling off it's perch and hanging from one leg before dropping to the ground....my camera, naturally, was out of reach at this point!

Also got some new art classes starting in the autumn which is exciting if a little nerve wracking....it'll be fine once they settle down!

And generally things have been busy with a workshop and a talk and just helping friends, but still it appears, a little space for a bit of depression, but trying to shake that off by getting things done and cleared...I don't have tie or the energy to deal with that particular empty black dog! (our two black dogs certainly, even if they do claim to be permanently empty...!)

And I think a new Journal skin is in order....much as I like the blue Morpho, it's a little dark to read....maybe something bright with foxes or cherry blossom or a dragon...any suggestions?! (Yes, I am on a slight Japanese slant and also foxes which I might now be close to getting a photo of, and dragons, well, trying to make one....sort of fits, right?!)

Ok, so an update somewhere before a year has passed....!

Really busy at the moment with a commission - almost done so hopefully another day and a bit on it, then a workshop at Castle Drogo on wednesday  - this is a photographic workshop if anyone is interested...!

Also working on a batch of new workshops with a new company in the South West - will write more about those once they are firmed up and once the company is fully launched.

And I'll be at RHS Rosemoor on the May Bank Holiday weekend with my prints, so hopefully that will be busy - come and say Hi if you are in the area!

Lots more planned, but a huge amount to do int he rest of life before I can get to really creating new things - I can't wait!

Also, I accidentally bought another longbow...but it seems quite nice, just have to wait for my wrist to recover from gardening so I can shoot without deboning my wrist with the string...!

My mind is capable of genius, if only it could find a start and an end to the ideas it come up with, or rather a middle connecting the two.
I am what I am, which is often confused, usually friendly and frequently vague...which is like this ID...I am also forgetful as I had a great entry the other day...<sigh>
I'm also not sarcastic...much...be careful...I am generally laidback but am easy to annoy with careless comments or actions.
I do like gothic...esp wih long hair....Abby rules! :innocent:

Current Residence: Devon
Favourite genre of music: most stuff except Rap - preferably nothing depressing...!!

Favourite style of art: Fantasy, anime, photomanip, manga, anything elegant and richly coloured.
Operating System: Windows vista - new fast comp(getting slower...lol)!!!!!

:hug: my pleasure, and you can always improve - when you think you can't, then that is the time to do something else! Until then you can always learn and always improve (and the rest of us try to get to your level ;) ) and just make sure you enjoy doing it!

Heheh! You have some great images, am sure I found you in the past but apparently you weren't on my watch list, corrected now!  How's the weather a little further north?
