Calendar, Daffodils All Year Long

This has been a very good year for me for
taking photographs.
I started in the Spring of 2013 with blossoms, and
as the months progressed, added Daffodils, Irises,
and Roses.
Above is my first Calendar for 2014, and if you like
Daffodils as much as I do, you will want this
Calendar on Your Wall.

White Iris

The month of May blesses us with many delights.
Yesterday on a visit to East Vancouver where I used to live
the Iris is popping out in abundance.
This was the best catch of the day.

Watch The Master Paint

Video streaming by Ustream
You are in luck, David Darrow is painting live today on a portrait commission.
Today he mentioned that he would not be talking very much as he wanted to concentrate
on painting so that he would not get too distracted.
And today he was very much "In The Zone"
It is fascinated to see his painting come together in a magical way.

How To Make A Stretched Watercolor Canvas

Here is a great video by Joyce Faulknor on making a Watercolor Canvas.
The process is to first wet the watercolor paper, then stretch it over stretcher bars.
The paper is cut, folded then stapled to the stretcher bars and left to dry.
This is a great idea to provide a different product to your customers.

March Irises

I shot this a few days ago in my front yard shortly after a good rain. You can see the water drops on the petals. I am very happy with this, and hope you enjoy it too. Photo taken with a Nikon Coolpix. This is going to make a good watercolor painting.

The Iris is by far my favorite flower.
