Always looking for those fun shadow shots. I like the way the stark angles of the building contrast with the organic shape of the palm tree shadow. Check out this shot and more shadow shots over at Hey Harriett. This one will be there next Sunday, but she has new ones posted every week.

Idle Illustration. She is a lovely person and a fantastic illustrator. I don't know her entire bio, but apparently she has been an author/illustrator of childrens books for some time now and has a background in animation. She has a number of titles out, some of them sadly are now out of print. If you have children, you must check out her website and go and find her books in your local book store. I intend to pick a few of them up for the future (you know, WAY DOWN THE ROAD, when I'm a grandma) with munchkins to read bedtime stories to. Anyway, the workshop was good. I learned some new techniques for working with colored pencils, met some fellow Prismacolor enthusiasts and also saw some cool gear. One of the other folks had this great pencil case which she purchased from Dick Blick Art Materials. More on that later...

The Pioneer Woman website and, low & behold, the new Photography assignment was "Dog Portraits." To be honest, although I have taken LOTS of pictures of my dog, not to many would make it through a serious critique. So I have decided to make a more concerted effort to work on this subject. Maybe soon I will work up my nerve and take pictures of PEOPLE!
