Since it’s World 🌍 Art Day here’s a look into how I created my artwork called “Thankful”.
The title of this image was inspired by a quote by an unknown author that I read on the day I took the original image “I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn, I’ve been hurt but I’m alive. I’m human, I’m not perfect but I’m thankful.”
This image won 1st Place in the Alameda County Fair Fine Art Competition for Alternative Process/ Mixed Media Category in 2021. It was also a featured image in the “Images that Excite” Group and the “A Woman’s Touch” Group on Fine Art America.

Post update August 2022- Delighted to announce that this original image has been SOLD to Scott at my “Colors Inside” show! Congrats and I hope it brings you much joy!
There is nothing quite like the sight of daffodils in bloom to lift my spirits and make my heart soar! Their delicate yellow heads bowing to greet the day as they dance on their elegant stalks. These lovely specimens are now blooming in my garden – I hope they brighten up your day too!
If these images have moved you, prints can be purchased on FineArtAmerica.
The rather rainy weather has brought long awaited relief to the garden and the daffodils seem to be loving it. The full sized daffodils are now also steadily appearing and their sunny shaded petals are adding a splash of colour to the garden.
I recently posted some photos of the miniature daffodils already blooming in the garden and a comment from fellow photography blogger Sophie L then inspired this bit of fun with some of my other flower photos. I have always loved Lewis Carroll’s book Alice in Wonderland and the Disney animated movie was thoroughly enjoyable too. Since I still have some other flower pics I may do a few more! Thanks for the inspiration Sophie!
