You are Invited

It has been a busy time.  Elena is off tomorrow to Russia for 3 weeks.  We have pictures being hung for a gallery show starting May 5th, participating in several classes and of course picking up the camera and testing our thoughts.

Now the details…We are excited to participate in the Aperture 8 gallery show at the Art Centre of Plano gallery.  The theme is Reminiscence and it was fun exploring the various meanings associated with our reminiscences. The show is May 5 through June 8th.

Painting in photoshop - week1

In week 1 of Marie class we covered filters, blending modes, layer styles, custom shapes and much more. And though I'm familiar with these tools the effects that were created are quite new to me.
