I saw this quote on the front of a friend's fridge a couple weeks ago.
"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."- George Bernard Shaw
I started this journey searching for myself hoping to find who I am. There is some truth in that where one let's there be freedom to be who we are. With each bit I've learned, there is also the opportunity of creating a life where I can be free to be who I am.

I love the organic shapes of each of the bulbs in the chain and how they simply curve about. I love that they are not all one color and the burgundy even seems to fade into the neutrals. I like how the sand in the back does not distract. I have cropped and turned this photo on it’s side. I love how the image drops off from right to left like a wall moving away from me. I wonder how to recreate that depth in a 2D image.

I like the hard straight lines of the stone and even the ridges of the shells in contrast to the curves of the overall shell shapes. My favorite is the little pop of blue on the shells in the upper right in the shadow. To me it looks like a good opportunity for me to use all those natural colored yarns I bought in New Zealand!

I love the feeling of home and comfort in this one – the content sheep, the grass, and the bright yellow flowers behind the fence. I love the black faces and legs of the sheep to contrast the grey of the wool. I love the strong horizontals of the fence and the verticals of the flowers, the posts and the legs on the sheep.

I love the haze and the shadows in this one, but also the gleam of the light on the water. I love the texture of the rock in the foreground and the small splash of blue in the sky. I also love the vertical of the land versus the horizontal of the clouds and the sea. Then there is the layers of the islands in the background that draw my eye to look further out.

Walk on the Beach
I love the starkness of this picture. I love the ripples and textures in the sand for themselves, but then how there are strong verticals and horizontals in the greater pattern. I like how the seaweed breaks up the sand in the foreground. I love how the seal is on the move “on-all fours”.
