“In assigning the awards I chose to reward artists who not only possess formal excellence but also have the sensitivity to use it with elegance and purpose. The 3rd place award goes to Celia Durand whose piece titled ‘Creation Cathedral’ conveys a sense of luminosity through digital veils of color. Like stained glass, the image uses textures and shapes to organize and direct the ephemera."
Todd McDonald, Associate Professor of Painting at Clemson University.

This is my second entry: Blush Orchids
This past weekend was our first spring festival this year. Beautiful weather on Saturday, not so good on Sunday, but lots of people looking and buying. All in all a good show.
I just found out that one of my PixelGraphs, Pink Mums, was accepted into the Anderson Arts Center 38th Annual Juried Show. The show will run from April 12 to May 31.
One of my PixelGraphs, Candy Stripe Orchids, was accepted into the FUMC Festival of Arts. It will be on display from April 14 to 28 at the Cumming First United Methodist Church, 770 Canton Hwy. Cumming.
"Winter Cardinals' got a third place ribbon in the People and Other Critters Category at the 2013 Southeastern Flower Show.
Wonderful quality of light.
Contrast of monochromatic environment and vibrant birds works well.
Coming very soon...
The last two days, a bluebird couple has been exploring one of ours bird houses. The male goes first, flies around and perches on its top and from there looks around, checking everything. The female comes then and enters the house. Hopefully they will like it and will nest there, like last year.
I would like them to realize that in real state what is important is location, location…
This particular bird house is in a very good neighborhood, inside a small but nice and secure backyard, with plenty of food and water nearby. And that without even mentioning about the mealworms that the landlords get for them after the babies are born.
All in all not a bad place for bluebirds.
