Day 8: 2012 Portraits of a Daughter on a Magic Road

I was alerted to this wonderful series of photos by my niece-in-law Meme.  I didn't know that NPR has a "feed" called the "Daily Picture Show" where people submit photos.  This particular series of photos, with an introduction written by the father, was a superbly pleasant way to start my morning. Spend whatever time you have available enjoying this small girl and perhaps? You could stop the feed and paint a gestural painting? a portrait? Many painting opportunities in this series of photos.

Kanna Nagano lies on the ground, looking very starry-eyed.

Day 7: 2012 The Wordle Website

The Verdugo Hills Watercolor Society's latest newsletter had an interesting blogsite mentioned by the editor.  She challenged all of us to go the Wordle website, create a wordle and send it back to her for inclusion in the next newsletter.  It is so darned much fun to create these things.  Take a look at Wordle and then take a look at what I made.  Such fun!!

I am so jealous of this guy. He has the ability to write code like nobody's business. I'd give anything to be that computer savvy.  He was working for/with IBM when he developed this Wordle site, with their blessing. He's now working with Google in Cambridge, Mass and thinks that it's hard being a beginner at Google.  If he thinks that's hard ...................what hope is there for the rest of us wanna-be-nerds!?!
