I painted some more on my Roses. since I know nothing of painting Roses, it is all trial and error. I am beginning to like the layout. still have to figure out 2 of the roses and then I can start adding the right colour and try to make them alive. That is the trick isn't it....? I dropped one of my paintings (Eastern Sky)off at the art gallery for the Centennial Show. Our town is 100 years old this year and I submitted 2 paintings to be juried and one was accepted. I had a good paint session today. I needed one.

Went for a walk and brought along my camera. Of course..that was the whole reason I went for a walk..to take photos. Playing around with my new lense. The lense is great but I have to learn how to use it. It isn't great for landscapes but I am really liking it. This photo seems to be a favourite. Not my favourite but most people really liked it.

I bought a new lense for my SLR yesterday. Wow! I love it. What an improvement over the kit lense that came with the camera. I couldn't get a decent photo..my point and shoot produced better photos than my SLR with the kit lense. Then I found out that cheap lenses don't let in enough ligh, among other things. I scraped together enough money to buy a 70-200mm f/4L USM. What a difference. Here is a quick photo for now; I took this at the camera shop to try the lense out. No camera set up or anything. Better photos to follow.
