Everyone can use a little nonsense now and then can't they? I certainly enjoyed creating this collage on canvas. In making this, I learned a couple things - how to print on tissue paper and a wonderful product called gel medium. I tell you, gel medium is some pretty terrific stuff. To add to the nonsense idea, I used bubble wrap to paint portions of the background of this collage. It seemed appropriate somehow.

Yesterday, I finally got to ride the dirtbike that I got for Christmas. I will be the first to admit that I ride like a girl. Hello!!?! I AM a girl and I'm going to ride like one, thank you very much! We went and rode at the Zars Ranch. It is a beautiful area just south of San Antonio. In fact, the San Antonio river borders this ranch. For someone that hasn't been able to ride for almost 5 years, the ravines were a little tough. I don't mind climbing out, but going down the side is a bit unnerving. For now, I am still pulling out cactus thorns. Ouch!

Well, I did it! I have created my first blog. I am so glad that you stopped by. Today, I experimented on how to take good photos of glass. I have decided that it's probably something that I will need help with. I needed some better photos of Madeline, my captured fairy. I used a blanket and an umbrella and was able to get out most of the glare off , but not all of it. I'm sure that if my neighbors saw me, they would think I am nuts. I am sure it looked odd to be taking pictures under a blanket tent and umbrella. Oh, well! Be sure to come back often!
