Daily Post Prompt: Successful

I decided to respond to today’s prompt with a picture. It’s one of the most “successful” pieces of photographic art I’ve seen in many years. And, of course, it’s from my wonderful photographer/artist friend, Terry Valley. ~~~

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light

This week’s WP Photo Challenge is a little confusing. The title focuses on the “half-light” periods of the day when we are between day and night, but then the actual challenge calls us to post a picture that is inspired by a particular poem, verse, song lyric, or story — and that picture does notContinue reading “WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light”

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is Harmony. I chose to go with harmony through color. In the first example, I started with my friend Terry’s graphic and then played around with it until I had the harmony I wanted. The other two are photos that I took personally.   ~~~

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Visit WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh and take part in this week’s challenge. I felt it was time again to let my good friend Terry Valley have a say in the weekly photo challenge. His artwork + my editing = my interpretation of the theme “Fresh.”   ~

Cee’s Fun-Foto Challenge: Orange

I didn’t have a good photo with orange that I hadn’t used at Thanksgiving time, but I had just put together a graphic design this week to use on a set of greeting cards I was making for a friend. So I thought I’d just share that rather than a traditional photo. It’s sort ofContinue reading “Cee’s Fun-Foto Challenge: Orange”

June Writing Challenge: More Graphic Art From Terry

Terry Valley had such a great time reading all of your stories from the last writing challenge based on his graphic art that he has sent me another picture – the result of further graphic art work by him. But he wants me to make it clear that he did not actually draw this picture.Continue reading “June Writing Challenge: More Graphic Art From Terry”

A Story from the Artist Himself

This week I sent Terry Valley, the artist who created “The Green Planet,” the link our stories based on his artwork. He was thrilled with them and, since he also writes, he was inspired by our stories to write one of his own. I’ve included his personal letter in this post because he expresses hisContinue reading “A Story from the Artist Himself”

Experimental Writing Challenge

Okay, I just can’t resist this. I love writing challenges, even though I don’t get to keep up with all of them.  A couple weeks ago, I began thinking about one particular piece of graphic art done by a friend that should spark several good ideas for stories. But, of course, no one else isContinue reading “Experimental Writing Challenge”
