Did You Know Photoshop Could Do This?

Art, video

I learned a new skill recently, and I’m super excited to use it to help people become aware of my art.  My thought is that nobody can enjoy it if they don’t know I create it, and getting word out is the hardest part about doing anything online.

So, what is this skill?  Are you ready?  I learned how to build a short, animated video in Photoshop.  What?  Photoshop can do videos??  I thought I was pretty savvy when it came to the ins and outs of this program, but until recently, I had NO clue Photoshop had these capabilities.  (I feel the inspiration for a future how-to post.  What do you think?)

So, without further ado, I’d like to share the resulting mini-video with you.

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you thought.  And don’t forget to check Igotchu Images for new shop additions.

Until next time,

My Perfectly Imperfect Start

Art, Uncategorized

Well, I’ve finally done it.  I’ve decided to join the realm of bloggers to share my passion of creating art.  There’s something about capturing a moment, emotion, or concept and making it into something interesting that excites me.

It took me a while to get here.  My nerves gnawed at me as I wondered what I’d write and how it would be received.  I’m perfectly great when it comes to formulating ideas about what topics to cover, but when I get in front of a computer I tend to draw a blank.  How do I get my message out in the PERFECT way?  And that is exactly what has held me back, until now.  Here is me, starting my blog, imperfectly.

This blog will follow my creative process, since that is my favorite part about art!  Since I just finished a piece, though, I’ll start by talking about it.  This is my latest piece titled Abstract Flowers.

I was walking through a garden one day last summer and spotted these flowers just soaking up the sun.  I enjoyed how they all seemed to be at different stages of growth.  Some were fully bloomed, while others were still forming within their sprouts.  Together they made an appealing scene.  When I finally had time to sit down and do something with the picture, I realized that the flowers are not unlike people within a society.  We are all in our own situations, learning and growing to be better in ourselves and in the different roles we play.  Together, we function and make up the society we live in, the scene that others see when they look at us.  I  can only hope they would see something as beautiful as the flowers.

You can find this and my other pieces in my shop, Igotchu Images. Here is where I make my inspirational art available.  I invite you to check it out and let me know what you think.

Until next time,
