Summer Weeds

Growing like crazy in the backyard right now is Linaria or "toadflax." I photographed them and then blended them with photos I've taken of my hand-painted backgrounds, did a few other things, and I'm liking the look. ©Carol Leigh

Opium Poppy

Another experiment. (Oh, who am I kidding? They're all experiments!) ©Carol Leigh

Complementary Pears

Music score, my painted backgrounds, and the ubiquitous pear. Or two. ©Carol Leigh

Cosmos Experiment

I'm not sure what I'm doing. (Yeah, like I'm ever sure!) I'm painting my own backgrounds and then seeing how they look behind certain things. And then doing some other stuff, none of which right now is consistent or predictable. Or replicatable. I like the messy, raw, funky look of this piece, as well as the somewhat muted colors. It's been a good day. Calm waters on the Alsea Bay this morning. Interesting photography experiments this afternoon. ©Carol Leigh
