More Collaboration with Gabriel Olude. These Muses are beautifully done so I don’t like to change them much just enhance them. This is a pleasure to be allowed to use his creative product with my interpretation.  I am using very talented designers overlays and back drops to create these images. Foxey Squirrel of Scrapbook Graphics is on of my go to designers and Anna Aspens design is another that I use. Both of these designers were used in these three pictures in this collaboration.

I have started on another creative quest. This time I am collaborating with Gabriel Olude [ a  Photographer/Artist from Nigeria that has offed his photographs for use in creative projects. I have taken three so far and rendered them with my creative take on them. The models, Muses as he calls them are beautifully done and lend themselves to creative interpretation. This is a breathtaking group of women, I am so blessed to be included in this project.

Here are three of my images.


Just ’cause I’m not here doesn’t mean I am idle.

Market day – using images from Foxy Squirrel


I have been totally engaged in my photography and art. I have neglected all of you. So sorry, Since I last checked in I have been to Yellowstone three times,  Zion Canyon, The Great Smokey Mountains and Alaska.  I get so caught up in taking, editing and processing pictures that I have decided that I have to hire a maid.  I, who does not like disorder or house work, get so involved in working on my art that I just step over the boxes on the floor. No that I’m a hoarder [well maybe a little] I developed a blind eye to the clutter.  Until the mess gets too much. Then my focus in on the mess. But, call me and ask if I want to go to Timbuktu and I will drag my camera gear through the mess and climb in the car ready to go. Or, give me a new technique and I have to try it, taking hours to decide if I like it.  This happens a lot. The maid would help keep my dwelling free of clutter while I go play.

I dream a lot!!!!

These are  a few of my creations using different materials  combining them to create an image.




Calm – using my Photograph from the Oregon coast and model from Colby Files.

I’ve been creating

I have been making pretty pictures out of my photographs and stock photos using overlays and brushes in Photo Shop. I get so involved some days that I forget to look at the clock and the day is gone before I know it. Enjoy.

Widow Walks

I have taken my picture of the Peter Iredale shipwreck and composited it with a stock image from © Photography by Cathleen Tarawhiti 2007 – 2012 at Dievetart. This was a fun piece to do, it seemed to fall into place after I saw the model image.
