Flea markets are always the fourth Saturday of each month, I enjoy going just to take photos to use for artwork. There is always a good photo opt resulting in an art piece opportunity.

Recalling as a child laying in a large field of grass near my grandfather's house, dotted with flowers and as a gentle breeze arrived, how they would bend and curl...holding on steadfastly...the sight and the feeling was so beautiful...and the flowers were symphonic...where or where was the orchestra?

Edward Mullar



Edgar Mullar - German artist known for his street paintings and he actually uses the street as his canvas. His paintings are optical illusions - three-dimensional images. In this video, you’ll see the making of The Crevasse. Mullar turns this road into an arctic chasm.

A Season is a Season is a Season


Prelude:About a week ago, we had our first sample of SNOW and I do mean sample - didn’t even get a true inch here though some other areas in the state got as much as 8 inches.
As I stood in the doorway watching large flakes of snow fall to the ground the night before, I wondered if there would be enough to even realize that it had snowed at all upon wakening in the morning. Of course, the local weather stations were gearing us all for a big snow advisory SCARE (so typical of our forecasters). After watching the beautiful rhythm of the snow flakes dancing through the air that night, I woke up the following morning to see a mere dash of that white stuff aka SNOW barely clinging to the sidewalk, grassy areas and parking lot where I live. I thought about grabbing my camera but decided to wait just a little while before snapping that Kodak moment.

In about two hours I remembered that I had not taken a photo of the brief snow arrival so I decided to photograph the area out back (little did I know that the sun had already visited and the snow had begun to melt). Mind you there was still a residue of fallen leaves that had been raked up and ready to bag. When I looked out….I was amazed at what I saw - I could not have taken a more unique photo - Three seasons in one (Winter, Fall and Spring)!!! (By the way I will be getting those leaves out of the way…soon)… :0)
