Moss and Lichen Growing Over Everything

Robson-Harrington old door with lichen covered brick wall.  Big contrast from the last several drought years.  Now there is too much water!

1950s Embroidered Photos


Photos by the late, great E.A. Autrey.  Printed 8 1/2 x 11 on Hiromi MM-5 Shiramine paper, then embroidered.  Color pencil added to the top picture only.

Top:  Lucy in the backyard in Santa Barbara, July, 1954
Bottom:  Lucy posing in our messy house, all dressed up, in June, 1958.

I like what some artists are doing with found photos and added embroidery.  But, I'd rather work with photos taken by my father, than pictures of people I don't even know.  So as not to upset my siblings, I'm forced to work on pictures of myself - not because I'm an egocentric person, like some people I won't name, who should not be running the country.

Taking Appealing Blurry Photos is Harder Than it Looks!

Anticipating a very stormy, blurry, weekend, I ventured into the backyard today, while the sun was out, to experiment with blurry photos using my Nikon digital camera and a 100mm macro lens.  More results are here:  https://www.facebook.com/lucyautreywilsonart/
