Kaleidoscope Color was inspired by a few photos I took of the studio models late last night. I held the camera as high as I could and just pointed them straight down into the big group of flowers. I saw a professional photographer do this with pet photos once, where instead of pressing the camera up carefully to your eye, you just aim it randomly at the subject to see if you can get an unexpected and cool shot. Out of about 60 photos, I got two unexpected and cool shots. The rest were blurry or off center. Obviously I am not a professional photographer. Even in the blurry photos, though, I loved the color! Color makes me happy. How about you?

Nancy, today I went to Fredericksburg to the Good Art Gallery, and I instantly recognized your paintings! They are even more beautiful in person than online. I have admired your painting for a long time, and I was thrilled to see some of them in person. Beautiful!
