I love to rearrange books and small pictures on my shelves.  These are simple things, with special meaning.

With photography, I look for natural arrangements in the yard.  The blue tarp on Karl’s trailer is a good background for autumn.  Plants by the back door add more colors.  Pine cones and leaves are also beautiful and interesting.  A squirrel is getting ready for winter and we had a lot of wind.

Photos

I am beginning to consider sending a few of our photos to journals for review.  I wonder how some may look in different colors.

new book by Luci Shaw

I’m reading a new book by Luci Shaw: Thumbprint in the Clay, Divine Marks of Beauty, Order and Grace (2016, IVP Books; Downers Grove, Illinois).  In the chapter I am reading now, she writes of the many ways we create art; and she speaks easily, for example, of letters, galleries, and poems.  All important.

Luci Shaw says, “Culture has a thousand surfaces that invite the stamp of meaning” (page 129).

For more information about Luci Shaw’s art, you may be interested in Writings and News & Reviews at her site, among other topics and categories.
