In browsing on Facebook I came across a thought-provoking statement that spoke volumes to me in how it relates to the creative individual. For a seed to achieve its full expression it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To cheap jerseys someone who doesn’t understand growth it would look like complete destruction. ― Cynthia Occelli Creative individuals will enjoy times when their work flourishes and blooms. This season of productivity may be lengthy and very rewarding. However, we must understand that after a period of flourishing, the blossoms will fade and a dormant time will ensue. During this time our creativity survives on the bounty we collected during harvest, but nothing new or fruitful will be produced. In time, seeds are planted. If they are not cultivated, they are less likely to sprout into a new season of growth. Yes, random seeds here or there may sprout and pop up, but we all know that a garden that is cared for will produce far more than one that is left alone. When creativity is dormant you are likely to feel that the creative muse has abandoned you. During this time you must be the one to cultivate your own cheap nfl jerseys creative soil and plant new seeds. In time they will burst open and come cheap oakley sunglasses completely undone. Although it will be fragile at first, the new season of growth will produce the most beautiful and abundant display of blossoms cheap football jerseys you could ever imagine.

Photo Challenge – “Light”

in Photography

Photo Challenge – “Light”

<div id="attachment_464" style="width: 2345px" class="wp-caption cheap oakleys alignleft”> This was a beautiful and welcoming sight while driving home from a long day of travel. This is week 45 of the 52-Week Photo Challenge that I was invited to join last December. It’s been a lot of fun, but it has also required a lot of dedication. This week the challenge theme was light. Yesterday was a long travel day following a lecture and concert I presented in Missouri for the 25th anniversary of the Missouri State Quilters Guild. As I was nearing home Cheap NFL Jerseys (La Veta, Colorado) these cloud formations and sunlight created a luminous scene that was simply riveting. I got to a spot where I could stop and capture it along with the intense Fall colors on the landscape. It was the perfect opportunity for my “light” challenge. I will be hosting a 52-week photo challenge that will actually be an ‘online class’ starting in January. There will be a challenge each week but in many cases it will be based on compositional elements and principles as well as highlighting various photographic techniques. Anyone will be welcome to sign up regardless of their skill level. Within the next few weeks I will outline the equipment and atingido software requirements for the class – so stay tuned! Many of you reading this post are quilters. Many of you desire to be more original and more creative. Perhaps you have a vision for something you would like to design or create but simply don’t feel you have the skills to design on your own. The compositional aspect to this class will be very beneficial to quilters. The advantage of learning via photography is that you can more instantly create a finished composition with cheap nfl jerseys the click of a shutter – and perhaps cheap oakleys sunglasses a bit of post processing. The class is geared to creating art photography and learning to see the world around us through an artist’s eye. If you know of a photo hobbyist who would perhaps enjoy participating, feel free to start telling them about it and have them follow this blog so they will know when it’s time to replica oakleys sign up.

Putting Down Roots – Growing Together

Putting Down Roots – Growing Together

This little guy has a chance at life. R$ Follow along and see what happens. Several years ago I was given Cassandra (a Christmas cactus) by my good friend, neighbor, master gardener, and needlework guru Judith Baker Montano. Jude must have known I don’t have a green thumb so she gave me a plant that is practically indestructible. I water her when she looks looks shriveled up, occasionally feed her plant food, but in ten years (at least) I have never repotted her. Cassandra has survived despite my bad nurturing habits. She has even put on a beautiful floral show from time to time. For having had her for over ten years, the one thing she hasn’t done is grow — at least not much. A couple of weeks ago I decided Cassandra needed a bigger pot. Okay, I didn’t decide cheap nfl jerseys that a couple of weeks ago, I knew that years ago – but a couple of weeks ago I finally decided to do something about it. I repotted her! <img class="wp-image-440 size-medium" src="http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/cassandra-oct2014sm-225×300.jpg" alt="This Christmas cactus is lucky to be fake oakleys alive. I don’t have a green thumb.” width=”225″ height=”300″ srcset=”http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/cassandra-oct2014sm-225×300.jpg 225w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/cassandra-oct2014sm-768×1024.jpg 768w, http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/cassandra-oct2014sm.jpg 1440w” sizes=”(max-width: 225px) 100vw, 225px” /> This Christmas cactus is lucky to be alive. I don’t have a green thumb. If I were Cassandra I’m sure I would have mixed emotions about being repotted. First, I would feel thankful that I were no longer constrained and cramped in a pot with no room to grow. Even so, I would feel a bit uncertain about my new digs. Change is always hard cheap oakley sunglasses to accept. Perhaps that’s why plants need a period of adjustment after being transplanted. Once settled in, I hope she will flourish. That remains to be seen – but so far – so good. During the transplanting process a twig of Cassandra broke off. I decided not to toss it. Instead I decided that this sprig would get a chance to flourish too. I put it in a cup of water and set it on the window sill. I’ve decided to let this sprig be a growth marker as we move and grow on our creative journey. The sprig has already sprouted new roots. Roots are needed to provide a healthy start and a long, productive life. Now — I just need to come up with a name – any...

Photo Challenge – Still Life

in Photography

Photo Challenge – Still Life

The theme for the 52-week photo challenge this week was still life. In thinking about doing a still life my mind drifted to all the famous paintings that contained baskets of flowers or bowls of fruit. I recalled paintings of tables ladened with wild game and farm fresh eggs. The images I remembered contained a grouping of items and that led me in the direction I took for my challenge image. I gathered faded coneflowers, a carved wooden bowl, and dried oranges — you know the ones, the tiny ones that are so popular these days. Did you know if you don’t eat them and leave them in a bowl for several months they dry up? Who knew? I’m sure glad I didn’t toss them, they ended up being perfect for this composition. The raven statues were added to complete the composition. I shot the image on a light table hoping that the lighting would be more unusual and more dramatic than it would have been with just natural light. During post processing my goal was to make the image feel dreamlike or surrealistic. I can’t believe it’s week 44 and there are only eight more weeks in this challenge. It’s been a lot of fun. In January I’ll be starting my own 52 week photo challenge. It will include lessons and techniques so be sure to follow me so you’ll know when it’s time to sign up.

Long Arm Quilting: Embracing Change

in Creativity, Encouraging Words, Quilting

Long Arm Quilting: Embracing Change

Giving my best shot at free-motion feathers in the black borders. In a recent post about change I said it was inevitable. Embracing it can also be difficult. I am a sit-down, free-motion, push-the-quilt, domestic-sewing-machine-quilter and I have always been just that! People ask if my BERNINA has a larger arm and the answer is yes! However, that’s only recently been the case because my sewing machines prior to 2012 were just regular-sized machines. This often comes as a surprise – but it’s the truth. I’m comfortable pushing the quilt and have enjoyed a fair share of success as a domestic machine quilter – including Best Machine Quilt at IQA in Houston in 2000 and Best Machine Quilt at AQS in Paducah in 2006. Currently sitting in my studio is a Gammill long arm quilting machine. It’s here on loan so of course I should use it. I will learn from trying it, gain experience using it, and understand the challenges others face when quilting on a long arm. Today I loaded a quilt onto the machine. It’s a funky string quilt that was made from leftover student blocks made in classes I taught from 1994 to 2005. It’s been waiting to be quilted for almost nine years (yes… me too! Stop laughing!) Quilting it on the Gammill seems to be the most logical thing to do. It’s not a show quilt. It needs to be quilted. And, I need the practice. String blocks pieced on fabric foundations can be twisted and turned to make amazing designs. I know that my skill at long arm quilting will not match the level of expertise I have for quilting on my BERNINA. I know it will be fine and it will look pretty. More importantly it will finally be finished! But still, long arm quilting is outside of my comfort zone. My thoughts create internal conflict – such as, “If anyone knows I’m long arm quilting they will think all my quilts were done that way. Or, “If they see this poor quality quilting they will think this is the best I can do!” Truthfully, it’s not that bad. It’s just not what I’m used to. So what’s the purpose of this post? First, it’s to let you know that I’m a domestic machine quilter who occasionally gives the long arm a spin viagra ligne avis. In addition it is to affirm that we all have insecurities in our creative endeavors. When we are learning, we already know our short...

Photo Challenge – The Letter “U”

<img class="size-full wp-image-400" src="http://rickytimscreative.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Letter-U-1sm.jpg" alt="I wanted to avoid cheap nhl jerseys the obvious, but this horseshoe just kept calling.

So, instead of ignoring it, I embraced it and decided a composite montage would be more engaging. Another week has passed and that means that it is time to share Week 42 of the 52 Week Photo Challenge. The theme this week was “The Letter U”. The horseshoe pic is a triple composite montage with a horseshoe on a crusted wooden door, a faded coneflower, and one additional overall texture image. The image below was made by photographing the bottom half of  an old slate that has ancient Irish ogham writing on it. The image was then post-processed in various ways to create the final look. I did a bit of experimenting with things to achieve the outcome. I will be hosting a 52 week photo challenge starting in January 2015. Those participating will learn a variety of techniques to create unique photographic imagery. Be sure to sign up (on the right) to be notified Milhões of my blog posts and stay jordan sale up-to-date on all things creative in my life. This old slate features ogham writing. oakley outlet It provided a U shape for the...
