I am playing catch up here but you are used to the unusual from me (I Think) and anyway from the day the theme list came out I have agonized over this theme - Abstract - that's Art - what do I know about Art? Well the answer in all honesty is - Nothing! What was I going to do, I have scoured every art gallery I could find and saw nothing that even tickled me under the chin let alone socked me between the eyes. This was the one that was going to stump me.
Went out looking today anything abstract, Nada, Nix, Nought and Nothing, but I was thinking Abstract, so just as I was pulling up in our driveway I thought "what is abstract?" - My answer, " The mundane made extraordinary"
What was I looking at Our House and driveway, what could be more mundane than that, "How could I make that extraordinary?"
Then the visit from the Proverbial Fairy Godmother - Wendy the Miracle Worker. I had created some really artistic looking shots using Wendy's Orbs, (Which I learned right here in the Elements Village) a quick snap inside on the computer and Voila! there she Blows! Ron's Abstract Home!
Purely serendipity I promise but I love that the Heart appeared unbidden in the photo, because it does epitomize both Sally and I. Now for the less hard themes. Ha.
