The Dude

DSC_2639.jpgThe Dude in all of his glory.

Is this the perfect picture?  Of course not.  Someone somewhere will find issue with it, but I like it.  I did not like the original.  The original was overexposed so I played with it…this was the result when I found something that I liked.

Could I have done something different? Of course. There is always something because hindsight is always 20/20. Do I care?  Probably not as much as I should. That is if I should.  I probably should, but it is the pictures like this. Like ones that I have posted in the past that played a part in me getting accepted into the art show that will be held in September.  Pictures like this that resulted in someone reaching out to me today and asking me if I’d be interested in participating in the art show that they are having in July.  Both are things that I should be proud of.  I want to be. I’m trying to be.

I forgot where I was going with that.  I think that my point is…art is cutthroat.  Everything is.  There will be people that like it and people that do not.  It is a perception thing and we know how I feel about perception thing.  It is also something that we are constantly learning.  I don’t know everything and not every picture is going to be perfect. I try. I learn. I do it again.  Either way, each one is mine and I should be okay with that.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

Heart of a Gypsy….

DSC_8936c1.jpgGypsy Vanner that is.  The Dude.  That is his name, The Dude.  I believe named for that movie with Jeff Bridges.  The Great Lebowski or something like that.  I cannot honestly say that I’ve ever seen that movie, but I believe that is the origin of this boy’s name.  He is definitely a dude.  That cockiness.  Him in all his beauty, what else can you say?  Dude.

I don’t know how I feel about this picture.  I took it in the rainy mist of yesterday morning.  Rainy mist that turned in to pouring down rain.  I struggled with photographs yesterday.  I’ve been struggling all week.  I was under the weather all last week and it took a toll on my art and my desire there of.  Strange how that works.

The good thing about being sick, or whatever I was. It really kept me off the computer for the most part.  A break that I cannot seem to take otherwise.  It also helped me lose that extra five pounds that I had been struggling with. Benefits of wanting to do literally nothing other than sleep.  So, I really cannot complain too much.  Silver lining.

Hope you have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
