Tomorrow is Thanksgiving but I am posting my image today, tomorrow I will be in PA having dinner with the skinny cousins from California.  I sure do have plenty to be thankful for this year - having survived the hurricane, having this great house and wonderful community, being healthy and able to do the things I love and having a great husband and 2 wonderful kitties - and this is just the tip of the Thanksgiving iceberg  I always liked Thanksgiving it is a nice unassuming holiday.  So have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone and enjoy your dinner!

Bringing The Sexy Back

Not too sure where this came from but here it is!  I heard a song on the radio today as I was driving called Bringing The Sexy Back and I couldn't help but to make an image.

Bay Head NJ Before The Hurricane

Bay Head, NJ - one of my favorite places and a place I have always wanted to live.  All this before the hurricane.  I think it has mostly been destroyed.  I haven't been back to the shore since the storm and I only live 10 minutes away.

Moon Child

I am still thinking moonlight and darkness - maybe it is the time change.  It is dark here before 5 and I don't like it at all. But then again I love the moon being a moon child myself.  Love this image, the full moon over the ocean just right for a ghostly dance.

Veterans Day

I want to thank all of those who serve our country - past, present and in the future.  I appreciate all that you do to insure that we have our freedom.  My dad was a WWII vet - I miss you daddy.

Dancing In The Moonlight

I am thinking about moon light today.  Nothing better than dancing on the beach under a full moon - wonder why they still have their clothes on??

Girls Night Out

I had this old image of these 3 women for a long time and always wanted to do something with it.  I put them in this archway added a moon and lots of textures plus a blue color cast and here we go - the Girls Night Out.  It works for me and they are looking fierce.

The Crow

Almost Halloween looking but it isn't.  I had lots of time to play yesterday - with Photoshop, watercolor and beads.  It was a long snowy day here at the Jersey shore.  I love crows and we have a lot of them here - they can be noisy but they are so smart and quite endearing.   I paired this beauty with trees and moon light - lots of layers and textures.  Love it.

Music In My Head

Some more play with Elements.  I so love this program especially since I cannot afford the full blown version of Photoshop.  This does everything I want so I am happy.  We may get some snow today into tonight then in the sixties over the weekend - weird.  I don't like snow much but LOVE to paint it.

I'll Fly Away

Did a little bit of work today with Elements.  I am calling this Fly Away.  That is about how I feel right now with all the political stuff going on - it is election day.  I am just so sick of it all.  I think your political views are just that, YOURS - and mine are mine.  I never discuss my political views or who I am voting for - too bad everyone else doesn't do the same.  I do not mind people telling me to get out and vote but I resent them telling me who to vote for.  Well enough of all that - tomorrow one side will be gloating and the other will be pissing and moaning they were robbed.  Meanwhile we are expecting another storm ; (

Fall Walk

This is a photo along the walking path where I live in NJ - this was before the hurricane no leaves left now and another storm is closing in - maybe some snow ; (

Fall Flowers

Mums - one of my favorite things about fall are the mums.  I have all different colors out front on my porch.  I cut off these bronze colored flowers and put them in a small honey jar. They have been in my kitchen window for over a week and they make me happy!

Fall Day

Here is a picture I took before the hurricane on one of my morning walks.  I just had to play around with it a bit.  Now all the leaves are gone and lots of the trees too - so sad.
