Shadow Shot Sunday and WIP


Hello again!  Another week has flown by so quickly!  
I love the movement in these photos created by the iron pergola and it's shadow.  And the textures (you know I love texture!) of the brick wall and flowers contrasted by the smooth, cool flower pots.





Isn't it pretty?  
We walked right past it and I slowed down and turned to my husband and he knowingly said "It's a great day for shadow shots"!  So I grabbed the keys and ran to the car and grabbed the camera to take these.  This is why I have so many darn pictures of Pasadena... because they seem to have loveliness like this around every corner!

To join in with your own shadow shots, hop on over to Hey Harriet.


I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting that often.  I have multiple projects going on right now.  Of course I'll share them with you as I finish them... or maybe even some in progress shots along the way.  Yeah.  Good idea.

 Here's a work in progress that I was working on last night.  It's a large 36"x24".  I had done several textured layers on it months ago, but put it aside to work on other projects.  I got inspired to bring it back out last night (and ignore all the other unfinished projects around it!)  I think it's calling for some gold leaf.  Yeah... it is. 

 I'll be back in the next few days to share more of the happenings around here.  See you then!

Oh, and there's still time to enter my giveaway!!  Go here to enter.

Lovely shot Esther! You're absolutely right about the bricks and then with the sharp straight lines of the iron pergola....mmmm I can feel an inspiration coming on. Good to see you have your husband trained well as a shadow spotter.

Lovely! I bet that's a great spot to sit and enjoy a morning coffee! I'll have to pop over to your giveaway post. I've been so out of the loop lately! Have a great week :)

Beautiful!! Love the WIP--I've never worked on a surface that large--I can't wait to see it finished--I need to get inspired to work on a large piece.

Pasadena is where that TV show Brothers and Sisters is set right? That looks like a rather lovely place! Cool shots!
