Close Encounter

July 30, 2018

I recently had a close encounter that I felt was magical. I was cleaning out a birdbath that sits in front of our porch. I was about a foot away and eye level from our hanging hummingbird feeder. I was standing, waiting for wasps that I hoped to get rid of that were bothering the birds. Suddenly, I heard a buzzing of wings right behind my ear and knew a hummingbird was at my side. She flew to the feeder and started eating just inches from me. She went around to all sides, eating and looking up at me. Then with a zoom, she flew straight in front of my face. She was so close I couldn't focus on her. I closed my eyes because I was afraid we might startle each other with quick movements. She flew so close to my nose I could feel her purring wing beats and she got caught up in the flying strands of my hair. She then flew down to the fly swat that I had at my side and looked at it almost questioningly then flew back up to me and then away. It gave me quite a smile.

 

I painted the image above a couple of years ago from a photo reference I had of a hummingbird outside the studio window visiting a host flower. It is always a delight to watch these fascinating birds.


A Regal Union

June 18, 2018

While the rest of the world was in anticipation of a little wedding over in England, our family celebrated the marriage of our own ginger groom to his royally adored bride this past March. Despite all of the rain and cold temperatures of this spring season, the day was beautiful and could not have been more perfect. I was able to steal the bride away to get a couple of snapshots of my own to be able to make a painting to commemorate the day.

I did not, however, get the groom aside. To make up for the lack of photo for this post, I will offer up an image I took from his youth with faithful horse if not polo pony.

Congratulations 2018 Graduate

May 26, 2018

 

Where does the time go? I have been asking myself this question time and time again when I put together another senior post of kids I have known since they were knee high to a grasshopper.

Seems like just a minute ago I was posting this lovely girl's big brother and his graduation. They make for quite a pair. I always love to hear of their adventures on family vacations or home movie projects they produced together.

I got to witness all of her sports accomplishments. She is an all around talent with brains and beauty.

2018 Senior on the Right Track

May 19, 2018

 

One day they are waiting for Santa

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

and the next day they are graduating from High School!

or so it seems!

This graduating senior is family of family, so I consider that family to me.  When we started talking about senior pictures, everyone knew we had to include her late Granddad somehow. He had worked for the railroad and she wanted to have her picture made with the caboose downtown. Using old snapshots and wedding photos, I put together an image to make a sort of logo. I then tried to make it look as if was graffiti spray painted on the side of the caboose.

I also used a photo that I had taken on a photowalk in 2011 to put train tracks behind her in a composite.

I used images from the same photowalk shoot to add different looks behind her instead of just gray photo paper.

 She is a great girl getting on track to become a pharmacy tech.

Congratulations Senior 2018! The future is bright ahead!

Think Big

April 09, 2018

Recently I got to work on a personal project. We needed new artwork to replace a water damaged print that sat on our mantel. The ceiling had leaked because of the chimney. Our fantastic neighbor helped us get it all of it repaired, so we got to put up new pictures. I created a digital painting using a composite of pictures I had taken of the tree and pasture just outside the studio. I had it printed 24x36. I then decided the painting needed artwork bookends, so I painted another tree from the pasture as a 15x30 and a leaf that I had photographed to use in another project as a 16x20.

I like having large pictures. My pet peeve is seeing tiny 4x6 prints framed on a wall all alone. The photo below shows how the prints look now grouped on the mantel.

 The other images show photo groupings throughout the house. Most are printed no smaller than a 11x14 and going up to 20x30.​​​​​​
