Not A Trick In Sight!

Unfortunately Halloween came and went with not ONE trick or treater! I was quite disappointed. Our little townhouse culdesac, on a golf course, really doesn't have that sense of community that I am so used to. After living overseas for many years and knowing every neighbour, coming back to the states has been somewhat of a letdown. As much as I try and get involved in things nothing ever seems to be going on. It's a shame that all of us live such transient lifestyles nowadays. Gone are the family get togethers on a Sunday, popping over for a cup of tea on a whim, and the simple pleasure of chatting to a complete stranger in the queue at the supermarket. I think we are all guilty of having to get things done yesterday and no longer take the time to be in the moment. So, time for some reflection on my part and think about how to make a change...that will follow on another post when I have an epiphany! Any suggestions are welcome though!

I had a few commissioned pieces to work on this weekend but because my computer is from the ark I have only managed to get a bit done. I thought I'd share what I have been up to regardless.

These are the photos I had to work with

This is little Michaela who I met and photographed for the first time last week.
What a little angel she is

...and this is what I ended up with

I'm not sure I'm happy with any of them yet . Any critique is very welcome though so please tell me what you think! (but be nice!)
Off to use my coupon at Micheal's before it expires and buy a bunch of stuff I don't need - hey - that's what Sunday's are all about right?!

Have a great week!
