“The purpose of life is to discover your gift; the work of life is to develop it; and the meaning of life is to give your gift away.” — David Viscott.
Recently I set out to take a short hike at Landis Woods. I took my camera but wasn’t very hopeful of getting any good photos because it was a grey, overcast day. But I had forgotten that it had rained overnight and earlier that morning. The trees and leaves were gleaming with rain water and rain drops were hanging from branches and I got some great photos. I will be sure to remember this photo tip: shoot after the rain.
So, the next time it rains remember this photo tip: shoot after the rain.
I love books, and I love making art, and have gathered quite a collection of books about making art. Every now and then I like to pick one of the exercises from one of the books and learn an art lesson.

Today, I chose the Cut Paper Collage exercise from Collage Journeys by Jane Davies.
