Flower-Like, FOTD Jan 31, 2019


These tiny coral growths on this palm-sized rock I picked up on the beach may not literally be flowers, but perhaps the moss qualifies.  At any rate, they are beautiful and flower-like. Had to share them.

Orange Blossom, FOTD Dec 8, 2018


When I saw Gina’s peeled orange with sections removed, I had to stay her hand until I could get this shot.  Doesn’t it look like a gorgeous tropical flower?

Flew the Coop: (Not a) Flower of the Day, July 2, 2017


Not a flower, but rather a leaf that fell from a branch of a tall tree I didn’t even know was in my front garden.  It is so obscured by the ferns and hibiscus and palms that I’ve never paid attention to it.  I couldn’t resist showing you this “found” sculpture.  Trying to figure how it could have happened.  The leaf that flew the coop, having released its hold on the branch, must be really brittle and have fallen precisely on the sharp points of the fern leaf bundle that hadn’t spread out yet.  Love these chance beauties of nature.

This is for Cee’s Flower Prompt.  You have to see her incredible photo of a rose Here.

Art We Walk On: One Word Photo Challenge, Floor

I love the found art in my world here in Mexico.  This lovely triptych was found on a vegetable vendor’s concrete floor next to the framers where I went to pick up some framed art work.  How many generations of feet were complicit in creating this lovely collage of colors?


Finding Art Along the Way: Art Walk Prelude

These are some of the pieces I’ll be showing in the La Manzanilla Art Walk on January 28.  I have another entire body of work–wall pieces where a part detaches to be worn as a brooch–that I’ll show you in a day or two. These pieces were all made by materials found on the beach at La Manzanilla or La Ribera in Baja:
