A New Adventure

Welcome to my Blog and my very first post! I thought it would be fun to personalize my own blog and have a place where I can share some of my thoughts, some of my photography, and some of my textures. As this is all new to me, there will surely be a period of trial and error in getting this thing going, but I am excited to start this new adventure!


For my first post I thought I would share an image I have been working on, and what better subject for this time of year than a pumpkin. I used a couple of textures on this image, Kim Klassen's "And Then Some" texture, and one of my own textures I have been working on. I will soon be sharing that texture as well. If I did this right, you should be able to see the before and after versions by hovering your mouse over the image and off the image (many thanks to Kim Klassen for her tutorial on how to do that). If you have not done so yet, I encourage you to visit her site....a wealth of information and inspiration.

Welcome to the blog world! Your first post and image were a joy to read/look at. It's because of Kim Klassen that I have also discovered my new passion for photography and Photoshop - she's wonderful. :)

Welcome to blogging and all the joys and frustrations you'll encounter! Jumping right in to challenges is great and I can tell already that I'm going to love your work - can't wait to see more.

It would make it easier for people to follow you if you'd add a RSS or google "friend follow" widget to your sidebar. Many of us don't want the emails but don't want to lose your site, so it's easier to keep up with you via google. Just a thought.
