Over the last two months I have been creating a heart design on plastic canvas mesh, which is a very time consuming process. The photographs below will take you on a journey of creating my heart design from start to finish.
Come back for the next post to see how the cross stitched heart design looks once it is completed.
Usually I write about photography on the blog I have allocated to this subject, but today I decided to post some of my photography here. Since my photography inspires the drawings, paintings, and cross stitches I create, I believe it is quite relevant on this blog as well. Last Saturday I actually remember to take my real camera with me, so I was able to capture some photos of my adventures. I paused for a moment when I was riding my bike to take this image of Mount San Gorgonio crowned with wispy clouds.
The palm trees in the foreground illustrate how this is a quintessential Southern California scene, but not the Hollywood one most people envision when they think of our state.
The Redlands Bowl is an amazing outdoor amphitheater, and I have never really photographed it before. Yesterday I was admiring the architecture as it basked in the noon day soon, and felt inspired to take a few pictures.
People think it never snows in Southern California, but actually it does. The dilemma this winter is that we are experiencing a severe drought, and thus getting very little rain, which means there has not been much snow in the local mountains. There was a light rain on Thursday night, which mean the local mountains receiving a dusting of snow, but these peaks are usually heavily frosted around this time of year.
