photo impressionism?

have you heard of photo impressionism? i have. and it's cool. this photo is not the best example, but it's the first semi-usable photo i could make work. this is SF bay. we took the byos there for my birthday a couple of years ago. photo impressionism, for me at least, takes the photo and captures the feeling. it captures the essence of the photo (which is what i like to do when i paint). if i messed with this some more i could make it look very much like a painting. pretty cool. anyway, sometimes i like to mess with photos before i paint from them. it expands my horizon and gives me ideas for color.
a quick page basically trying to get the photos i had on my table, OFF my table. journaling: be free. with your spirit. with your kindness. in your life. some good words for E as he grows up.
just came in from working in the back yard again. going to give the boys a bath. taking TWO allergy pills tonight so hopefully i will be knocked on my ass and get some sleep. heeeeeeee!
looks like i may be going out of town next week. that's another post all in itself for another time.
ps: bangkok is 14 hours ahead of my local time. just, you know, in case you were wondering. ;)
