Reflections in The Pond

April 9th, 2022

Reflections in The Pond

This photo was taken in Southampton County, Virginia across from Johnson Mill Pond where corn was processed to make some of the best corn meal in the United States. If you ever had some, you might agree it’s the best in the world. The water in this pond was used to power the mill. While passing through the area, my eyes captured the vegetation surrounding the pond and how it formed the outline of the pond In various patterns. The reflection of the trees in the water and the formation of the clouds in the sky on that day, makes a one of a kind rendition; a piece of art. Hope you enjoy it.

Jigsaw puzzles during Coronavirus Pandamic

Jigsaw puzzles during Coronavirus Pandamic

I never thought that a jigsaw puzzle could be an asset to ones well being during COVID - 19 until I ran across an article on AARP -Jigsaws provide multigenerational fun and an escape from worry
by Tanya Bricking Leach, AARP, May 18, 2020.

Some people have picked up puzzling as a hobby. My family enjoy puzzling while keeping our mind stimulated and adding more variety to our day especially since the coronavirus pandemic, we don’t travel as much.

The author wrote of Carmen who stated: "I like images that are bright,” she says, “especially in the world we're in right now. I've got two family members in Detroit in the hospital with COVID, so this is a distraction that's definitely needed."

The author also discussed Surge in puzzle sales
Stay-at-home orders have sent jigsaw puzzles flying off the shelves almost as quickly as toilet paper. Puzzle makers say sales are up 300 to 370 percent over what they were this time a year ago.

"We're seeing sales numbers that are exceeding what we usually experience during December during the height of holiday shopping season,” says Thomas Kaeppeler, president of Ravensburger North America, a leading puzzle brand. “To put that in perspective, Ravensburger sold about seven puzzles per minute in 2019, and so far in 2020, we are looking closer to selling 20 puzzles per minute.”

Ceaco, a leading U.S. puzzle company, did more online sales on one day in March than in all of December, Ceaco President Carol Glazer says.

Suppliers are struggling to keep puzzles in stock because the coronavirus has temporarily shut down factories. But the demand is not letting up. It's not just new-fangled 3D puzzles or mystery boxes that are popular. It's ordinary 300- to 1,000-piece designs of landscapes or artwork or animals that are captivating people. At forever-arts.com, as an Independent Artist with Fine Art America, our puzzle pieces are in 500 and 1,000 pieces. The nice thing about our jigsaw puzzle is solving the images capture by artist. In my case, photography.

Jigsaw puzzle solving definitely brings to me, calm, peace of mind, less worry, stimulates the brains and allows for family or personal fun.

Micro Photography

I just discovered I love macro photography. So I purchase a macro lens for my iPhone which can also be used on my iPad. Insects that I never payed any attention to before is now Part of the pleasure in capturing what nature offers. You can almost find them anywhere in your backyard on nature trails parks and so on.

Micro photography is capturing flowers and living organisms very close-up. As a result, The subject is larger than life size.

I capture this Mexican Kadydid sitting on a very red rose in my garden. I was lucky it paid no attention to me and allow me the opportunity to adjust my distance to get a good photo. I was excited to capture his green colors and eyes which displayed well on the red rose. Mexican Kadydid is a species of phaneropterine in the family Tettigonildae. Naming these insects is educational and rewarding.

Join me for the next series of micro photography in my next blog

The Best Way to Display your Image on Mask

I purchased my Flower Power Red Rose mask for personal use. Upon receiving it, I immediately noticed the three pleats. I tried it on and it fit well but I really wanted to see more of the Rose. If anyone find that you are not seeing as much of your design as you would like to, here was my solution.

just open the pleats up by using your fingers
Place fingers on the top and bottom of the horizontal sections
Spread the pleats to desired position.

Now you can see your image and it does have the shape intended.

COVID-19 and the Mask

COVID-19 and the Mask

Social distancing, pandemic and face mask are becoming a big part of our daily vocabulary. The leprosy disease carrier had to declare “unclean”, “unclean” so others would know. They were isolated from the rest of society. That procedure sounds familiar with COVID-19. Today, we use the mask for protecting ourselves and others. All kinds of mask are being made. But, regardless of style, color, pattern or those for children, adults or pets, we need them. Circumstances beyond our control like the weather or a pandemic can cause human behavior to change. Many individuals and businesses are emerging to fulfill the need for mask. It is a good thing.

Our designer face masks Comes with this description: “The Center for disease control has recommended the use of cloth face masks to help fight The spread of COVID -19. The facemask is made from 100% polyester and includes two woven elastic loops for a comfortable one size fits all fit.

Please note this is NOT a surgical Grade mask. It is not intended for any medical or commercial uses whatsoever. it is a simple cloth mask designed for every day use to cover your mouth when out in public. The mask should not be used in any medical or surgical setting.

We make no warranties that the mask prevents infections or the transmission of viruses or disease.“

I think this is good information to know as you navigate your journey through this pandemic.

Botany Bay an art of nature

Botany Bay an art of nature

Sell Art Online

This beach built by nature Is located on Edisto Island South Carolina. Taking Highway 174 to Botany Bay Road Is where the adventure begins. The first building you’ll see is a church. This 4,630 acre plantation was home for many including slaves. There is a lot of history dating back to 1695 for the sea cloud plantation and the late 1790s for the Bleak Hall plantation. Photographers and visitors in recent years describes this area as: beautiful, intriguing, magical, breathtaking.

The picture shown here is the beach portion. No shells, artifacts, driftwood or anything can be removed from the beach or any part of the plantation. In addition no alcohol allowed no metal detectors or drones.

The entry to Botany Bay reminds me of a tunnel as you travel on a dirt road through a canopy of oak trees.


Because of the erosion of the beach, some of the dead trees stand still facing the ocean while others take their place on the sand.

Growing up on Edisto and enjoying the atmosphere of the Low Country, I invite you to connect to a piece of this history through the various mediums on my web page.
