One of the photos I took on my hike. I used the "infrared" feature in Photoshop (Image > Adjustments > Black &White > Presets > Infrared). It looks like there is snow on the ground, but in actuality, it is a green swamp.
These two framed horse photos that I had for sale in the Muddy Creek Artists Guild show back in December (which didn't sell), are now on display (and for sale) at Earth Works in Leesburg, Virginia. Earth Works sells art and handmade crafts on consignment. My stepfather, David, makes jewelry and has successfully sold some pieces through Earth Works, and mentioned my horse pictures to the owners, who agreed to try and sell them. Keeping my fingers crossed that they sell.
Something else I have been focusing a lot on lately is my time management skills. There is so much I want to get done, and there is so much time I waste (surfing the Internet is a BIG one), and obsessing over stuff I have no control over. It is time to let it go, and refocus on what is important (and surfing the Internet and obsessing over stuff isn't important).
Sometimes when you take a stand, you find yourself standing all alone, and that is scary. Staying under the radar is safe, but not comfortable, at least not for me. I have never been one to "play politics." I am really bad at it, and the older I get, the less I'm willing to play games, or go along with the status quo. I can't change other people, only myself.
The rule I live by is "Actions speak louder than words." When those actions and those words aren't meshing, it's time to walk away.
Done with the drama.
Time to refocus my efforts in a positive direction.
