While on my walk around the house I espied the peachy roses that grow between the house and the hubster's workshop. I took a few pix and then was playing in Photoshop to maximize them when I made a very small discovery. You see, I frequently use the 3 x 3 grid that can be found under the custom shape tool as an aid in cropping with an eye to the "rule of thirds". What I usually do is put the grid on its own layer above my picture and then move it around until I like what I see. Then after I crop, I discard the grid layer. Here is what I got today:
But when I looked at it cropped with the "grid" still on top, I thought I liked how it looked as though I was looking through a window and so I beveled the grid and here is what I got:
What do you think? Is it just me or does it look pretty cool with that "window" in front of it?
Meanwhile between running errands, getting my hair cut, visiting at the daughter's while her Dad cut and weed whacked her lawn, taking her little one out to eat and play while her older sister was at ballet class, and watching ballet girl's last softball game of the season, I did manage to get some art time.
I actually doodled this domino on Saturday morning before the girls showed up for the day. It is a bit messy, but has potential, I think.
These two are part of the WC Pencil class I am taking. I am having fun with them, but wish I had been able to work at them while the lessons were fresh so that I could have paid more attention to others' attempts and read and digested the feedback.
Today I have to cover the box that I am using to return the Tupperware Chef Series pans that I purchased for the hubster about 5 years ago that cost a fortune, but that have Teflon coating that is beginning to fall apart. The box I am sending them in is from a toddler car seat and is full of pictures. I don't think UPS will take such a distracting box. I have some postal paper that I bought at the dollar store that I think will work. Meanwhile, until they replace them with new ones that don't have Teflon coating, I will be without my four most important cooking utelsils.
Later today, I am going to Stockbridge to tutor an Algebra student before he takes his final later this week.
In between I think I will do some art.
What do you have planned for today???
