Original Work

Are you ready for the next step! How about working on your original artwork! When you start working on your own creations, this opens up a whole new world. You can start getting your work "out there". There are many opportunities to get your work on-line and many are free.


We've had several beautiful days here in Colorado that you can get out there with your camera and snap a few. Try early morning or late afternoon to get better shadows. Capture the whole landscape or just a few objects or people. All you need is one photo to inspire you to get it down on paper. Look through your "things" at home and set up a still life. I find I'm more successful if I work with things I care about. Start out with just a few objects and keep it small. Play around with the lighting and make the shadows just as interesting as the objects. Most of all, have fun!
