I have a great Interest in Photography, I love reading and learning, I enjoy many different ways of expressing my talents in art. I Like culinary food art, carving fruit and vegetables and catering parties. I like drawing and water coloring as well. Other activities I enjoy are dancing, golfing, racquetball and bowling. However, my favorite things to do is travel, eating out and taking pictures along the way. I am a member of the Nevada camera club. It is one of the best ways of learning Photography because you get to learn will doing. I learn so much from the other members, their classes and field trips. What pushes me the most is their competitions. I am currently learning photo shop on my computer, That might take me a few years though.
I love the fall it is my favorite time of the year.
This is a display I have as you walk in the door of my house, during Fall.
This is a hand made Pepper Flower bouquet, I made it for my Nieces wedding. Working with these flower peppers burned my hands, but they turned out great. The burning feeling didn't last to long, just a few hours, I know I should of put gloves on, it's hard to wield a knife with gloves on.
I carved this Indian Chef into this gourd for an Indian friend of mine. He loved it.
These are ones of the "End of Trails" and some in Pumpkins too.
I carved Marilyn Monroe for one of my friends, shes a big fan. The pumpkin is really painted white I just colored the picture orange for this weeks theme.
This is a pumpkin inside a pumpkin I did last year.
I have a little story about these boots. My Husband and I went to Brian Head, Utah for my Birthday a couple years ago in June. We planned on hiking, so my husband pulled out his hiking boots he has had for ten years. We started hiking around in the snow then moved to warmer ground a little lower on the mountain. He said "his shoes felt funny like he was walking in sand and flopping like sandals". I looked and he was leaving pieces of his shoes every where he was walking. We both laughed. By the time we got back in the car, then drove to a store to get him some different boots to hike in, their was hardly any sole left . He walk in to the store still leaving pieces every step he took. The store clerk said " he never had seen that before". I couldn't stop laughing it was so funny. I think it was because of the extreme temperature differences. My husbands opinion is dry rot.
My Friend JarieLyn And I went to the Silverton Hotel parking garage, to take pictures of the Carnival. We ended up taking most of them of the Farris wheel. We really lucked out because they had fire works too.
A few days before we went to another parking garage and took pictures of the cars coming up the ramp. I wont disclose the Hotel because we got kicked out. We were told we couldn't take pictures of their Hotel or hang out in their garage. But we already had a lot of pictures so we left. No problem.
This last one is a neet trick . You stop the car and every thing else is moiving.
To be honest with you. I took all these photos this morning in side my house, as fast as I could. So I could post this morning. I got caught up in doing other stuff this week, I didn't have time to really ponder on what I should use so here they are my line and stripes.
