    A beautiful shot Vic! I love that time of day and the picture is great through those trees.

      Thanks. I get lucky, sometimes.

        No you knew what you are doing

          I try but, sometimes fail. I know how to focus on subject but, camera sometimes won’t cooperate. I need a real camera.

          I do have a great deal of artistic training (not bragging, here). My mother put me into certain classes for learning, outside government schooling…not really for MY benefit but, for living vicariously for her. She struck gold by putting me in private art classes. I had three different art teachers with different skills. One was all about oil paintings. One was into acrylics, pastels and three point perspective with charcoal & pencil. One was into alternative work…digging dirt in her backyard and making clay animals & pottery…tie-dying…burlap-backed clay for gouging pictures for printing, wood burning…she was my first art teacher and lived in this huge, beautiful Victorian house in the downtown area of my hometown. That house was 75 years old when I was little.

          I also got lucky to have great art teachers in 7th grade, 9th grade & a Coach in 12th grade that trained us into photography, lithography, screen printing & t-shirts.

            I remember in our Art classes in high school that we did screen printing…but not the other stuff you did. That training gives you a better eye than a lot of people.
            You sure did get a variety!

              You know, I hadn’t thought about all that stuff in years. I naturally lean towards my left-brain, analytical side but, tend to gloss over my history.

              It’s a shame that all that art training I had can’t be replicated in today’s terms. Everything, now, is digital…or just plain sickening. Art teachers were everywhere when I was young.

              We have several art galleries, here but, the attitude of the people…I’d end up punching someone in the face.

              The one thing I never did was metal work…except when I was building motherboards in the late 80s. Using woodburning tools, prior, I had no trouble soldering.

                Well it does give you something digitally…and over all…an eye of what things look like.
                I liked glass painting and silk screening.

              Oh! I forgot about my stained glass work….lead caming, not copper foiling. My stepmom was into copper foiling (think light catchers).

              I learned from a couple in Austin. The husband was a bit odd. He’d been working with lead caming for so many years that, he, clearly suffered from lead poisoning. He drooled on himself a bit. He was functioning but, really odd.

                I did a little bit of that on glass….it was shadow or something like that work…with a background sky of orange and a sillouette of a barn or something in front.

                  I still have a shitload of colored glass in the attic & a glass grinder in the shed. My stepmom was also talented at mosaics & stepping stones. Messing with concrete is something I have never done. She was brilliant. I have two of her stepping stones in the yard.

                  I was visiting for Christmas from Texas in 2005. I flew home and she gave me a Marine Corps stone, complete with bulldog, DI hat & symbol. I put it into my luggage bag, to fly it home. Naturally, it was heavy. When I opened my carrier, there was a note inside where my luggage had been scanned and the stone caught their attention. LOL! Four years out from 9/11 and they thought it was a bomb! LMAO!

                    At least you didn’t say Bomb…like Jen did in 1999 or so in an airport… yea they were touchy after 9-11….I remember Bailey getting searched when he was around 6 or 7….

                      Why was Jen talking about a bomb?

                      Was Bailey frightened?

    I’m a sucker for those beautiful purple hues. Do not get a lot of those sky colorations here in the Midwest.

      This area can get breathtaking sunsets. I have tons of pix. I think it may have something to do with this state’s terrain.
