I'll Never Forget ....

Mixed media art
in honour of the 'special ones' 
gone before.

William my father, called me his little buddy,
 loved by all for his wicked sense of humour,
his roguish ways, generous spirit,
not a day goes by that
I don't think about
his parting night,
the glint in
his eye said
 'I love you little buddy'.


Beautiful Alice my mother, 
doting mother,
always there to say
 'there there'
 she loved Roses chocolates,
 ground coffee on Sunday
and totally in love
with my dad.


Eric special friend,
a big cuddly bear of a man,
aware of his spiritual need,
caring and comforting, always in my heart. 
Must be with God 
 he talked about him endlessly
and, his lovely wife Freda
remembered fondly

Joining in with friends, honouring those gone before ~

Hi Sue.
What a beautiful work of art you've made in memory of lost loved ones. The few words you've written about each one are so touching and say so much about them ~ beautiful words honoring beautiful people.
I became involved in this Day of the Dead celebration because I lost my dear brother last Fall. It has been so very helpful to me.
It is nice meeting you, Sue.

Each special tribute, so beautiful in your words and sentiment. The collage is beautiful and will remind you of your sitting down with your mom and dad and friends and thinking deeply about them every time you look at it.

Your tribute to family and friends is lovely.
Beautiful work of art honoring loved ones. Thank you for sharing your loved ones memories with us.
I just love your commemorative art piece, Sue. The colors are so incredibly vivid. I'm still in the early stages of "arthood" and wonder if you would e-mail me the details of how you created this? Also, are these acrylics, and if so, what colors or combos did you use? I also love the stories of those you remember. That's what I hope to begin tonight when I sit with my loved ones by the ofrenda.

Aww, Sue, this is one of the loveliest hommages to beloved passed souls I've ever seen. You inspire me to do something similar. God bless you. Annie
Sue; thanks for sharing your memories with the rest of us. I also enjoyed the photos below of the car in the drive way; but saddened to read of your daughters illness. Hopefully there are answers and results by this point in time?

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
