garden angel. so this week for the challenge I made my butterfly angels--
The butterflies are Dover images and I used my favorite garden book for the background again--
And when I was making this, I knew that I wanted to add text or a quote. I don't really have a way with words, so I just went to Google and found this quote:
"Imagination will take you everywhere"
The actual quote is "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere."
I found it here:
Now, I'm really proud of this. I was never able to figure out how to get the actual utube video up on my post--I'm still in computer grade school. So with a little help from my son, Nick, via email, I did it. My son is a college professor, you know (Dr. Salter), and he's been teaching me computer skills since I started my blog, but he'll only tell me how to start things and then let me figure out the rest by myself. Look Nick, I did it!
This video has really great quotes in it, that I know alot of artists like to use in their art, and also there are some amazing butterfly photos in it, or if you just want to be a little motivated, it's nice to watch. Okay, if anything, at least put it in your favorites (after all this trouble I went through to figure it out). There really are some wonderful quotes on here. And I want to give credit to the utube artist Elaine Gilbert for putting this together.
Isn't the internet wonderful? It has become such a useful tool for artists. I can't even count all the techniques I've learned, and look, I'm taking a class that I've always wanted to take. I really don't think there's a local Goddess and Poet class in my town. I think one of the best parts about it, is just interacting with other artists all over the world. If I have a question or need help, I always know where I can go. What was it like for artists when there was no internet I wonder?
And in December, I bought myself a laptop for an early Christmas present. The main reason was, so that I could have it up in my art room, because I knew that I was going to take a class, and it would be much more convenient for me. But it's really become one of my art supplies that I can't do without--for instance when I wanted to find a quote. She's become like my little art assistant. I call it a she, because there are days when she's a bit moody, and there are days when she can be a downright ITCH with a B, but most of the time we get along very well and I've become very dependent on my little Dell. And after reading what I just wrote, I think that I'm spending WAY, WAY too much time in this house and I think I need to get out more : )
