Once again, Topaz Studio is tasked with assisting my unwinding.
I have to say, Studio makes using the plugins and other adjustments a lot easier than using it from the Adobe products. Plus, there’s a lot of saved “recipes” from the community. I should probably save some of my concoctions and save them.
. . . well, here’s my latest batch; a mix of Note 2 and Note 8 photos.
First up, a rendition of a sunset off the balcony of the condo we’re renting.
Part of what I’m doing is learning the program, but also trying out different color combinations. Were I an artist, I’d know all about colors; things like primary, complementary, and other technical jargon. As it is, I just throw switches until I like something.
This next rendition is of a flower in a parking lot.
Next up, an old favorite of mine taken at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Spring.
Here’s another flower from another parking lot . . . not that you’d recognize it as such.
How about a straight-up photo . . . from our sink?
Both of these next pieces are reminiscent of works of famous artists . . . but they’re my own.
Both of those are from the trip out East when I attended the Viable Paradise workshop in 2015.
Here’s a photo taken at the harbor in Salem.
And a photo from Martha’s Vineyard.
Next up, a moth that was out on our lanai.
And lastly, one of the ornaments I mailed out for Christmas last year . . .
OK, I’m off to bed; perhaps I’ll read a bit or watch some YouTube videos. Or, perhaps, I’ll draw something. Life is exciting, ain’t it?
Here’s the gallery of the above presented in random order. If you want to comment on a particular photo, identify it either from the subject matter or by the position in the post above; using the position in the gallery is not helpful because when it’s randomized, the order changes with each viewing.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.

. . . my FP ward . . . chieken shit.
Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.
