HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And thank you everyone for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday. Not only do I enjoy seeing your work and getting to know you, but I also have found it has encouraged me to make art… no matter how busy, sad or happy life is – I still have to make time for my orange art and my fellow orange artists!
This week I am without my computer and had planned to blog using my iPad. I gave up. I am using my friend’s laptop instead. I really can’t get used to the track pad thing so I found an old mouse. You wouldn’t believe how long it took me to realise that is exactly what I needed to end the frustration.
I decided to choose a wide selection of your work – of paintings, photo art etc… I ended up with 160 images! And that was only going back as far as MoM#50. To simplify the job I grouped them into themes/subjects. Next week I will do the Nature pics. I apologise for not including your names but I am running out of time! It is now Sunday night and dinner isn’t even on!
Instead of using Photoshop as I normally would, I downloaded a free mac application called Collage Factory to make the collages. It really did save me hours.
So once again, THANK YOU 🙂
And my apologies for not visiting everyone last week.
I am opening the linky list a little early – less risky than setting a publishing time for midnight!
Don’t forget to visit others to wish them a Happy New Year and if you have time take a look around their blog. If you are new to MoM, you will find some help here.
