About Me

My photo
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.

My Friday Town Shoot Out!! Oct. 1st

This weeks theme is Colors Black and Orange.

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.
And this is just because it was black and orange.

I love your pepper display. At first I thought they were birds of paradise. Next time I am asked to do a floral display, I might do a copycat. The trouble is peppers are so expensive now (end of winter) $9.90 a kilo i paid for yesterday.

I didn't actually go to a Mexican party. i just wrote it for the effect.
