Little things

I didn't think I would post this week -- we went up to Providence to pick up our youngest from her dream summer at art school.  Add in some house guests and a college visit, and there has been no time to play with my camera or art supplies.  But then I took a few minutes to start browsing all those gorgeous images over at Kim Klassen's cafe, and decided I had to join in the fun.

The theme this week is "the little things."  I've been struck lately about how quickly time flies.  It was just yesterday, I'm sure, that my little girl was trying hard to open this gate:
Processed with Kim Klassen's "luminous" in overlay mode at 100% (texture brushed off face)
Now, she's in college.  She's been working with a local theatre company this summer -- working harder and with more intensity than I've ever seen, trying to open new vistas for herself.

Suddenly I see that the little things are really great big huge.

That is the sweetest picture - I'm so glad you found the time to share it.

To answer your question about using my photography in my art quilts, I have on occasion, but much prefer drawing them instead.
