On this last Sunday morning, I was greeted with a Daily Deviation! These recognitions are quickly becoming wake-up calls, and what it's calling me to feel and do is  (well, first of all:
THANK about 300+ Deviants for the FAVE, a daunting task if there ever was one) try to
continue to bring to attention the work of OTHERS whom I feel should have been recognized
instead of me. So this journal will deal with two artists whom I admire greatly for a number of
reasons. Before I embark on this tribute, I would like to say that I have begun the process of
thanking those who Faved me on, actually writing to them. But, sadly, I'm not
sure if I can finish this task, and I wanted to let you know, that, I'm finding it harder and harder to sit at a computer that long...without neglecting other duties. SO, THANK YOU for
all your attentions and faves. You are deeply appreciated. I'll try my best to reach you...somehow.
The first person who I really appreciate is Katie. She has been a faithful friend to me on
dA since my first days, sometime early in 2010. Katie is a wonderful artist who loves
photography, cats, flowers and lately, I have discovered that she is an excellent Quilter who
would make a Quaker flush with excitement. For all I know, maybe Katie IS a Quaker. One of her latest efforts is a Color Chart Wheel, which totally blew me away. I went to a least two community workers ~ including the one in charge of Crafts, Artesania, ect, trying to convince them that TRULY This Deserves a DD!!! I have had no luck in this endeavor. But I will add
her piece, following this article. Maybe some (or ONE) of you are much better suggesters
than I am.
Lastly, I am going to point you in the direction of the work of Jason, who is probably already
quite well known to many of you. His piece 'Catching BeesCatching Bees by seyk
' is an illustration for a book
Jason is working on, with an appropriate writer.  I downloaded the piece and printed it out
on 8.5x11" Epson Matte Paper, and I set it on my piano's music stand, so that it would always
be near. It is a Masterwork, in every sense of the word. This fellow is divinely inspired, and
just who his muses are, he isn't quite sure, or isn't saying. The detail is incredible. The composition breaks more rules than Andrew Wyeth. You be the judge, when you see it.
In conclusion, THANKS for the DD...and all the FAVES. I'll try to thank each and every one of you....some day. Carry on...and Tally Ho! RCGRainbow Star Explosion by kbhollo

Well, one thing would be,

I never look 'good' in photos.
I mean, I don't believe there's a soul on the planet who can take a picture of
me that I like ~ one that makes me look 40 or so, rather than 90.
So,what better time than to try out my new Phone Camera, with a really neat
idea: a little button that REVERSES the direction the camera points. A camera
that shoots backwards!! Oh, if Alexander Graham Bell had known about this.
He'd have said it all over again:

'What hath God wrought?'

My pleasure Derek! I simply couldn't get enough of your
superb explorations of the portrait! And I have a special fondness
for those of the dad's father came to the US from Canada
around 1880. The rest of me is Swedish! Have a great day, sir!!
