April 17. 2014  This is one of the pieces of art at the SCI show in Vegas, that I LOVED!!!  The artist is Stefano Cecchini.  I've featured some of his paintings in past year's shots from SCI.  According to www.grandbohemiangallery.com:  Stefano Cecchini was born in Rimini, Italy on May 5, 1957. After graduating from the University of Bologna with a degree in political science, Stefano Cecchini followed his natural inclination and his passion by choosing painting as his career.  In November 1984 Cecchini collaborated with director Federico Fellini to paint scenery for the film Fred and Ginger. His work on the film took him to Rome and then Milan. While in Milan, Italy, he began to teach art at the European Institute of Design.  Cecchini has also worked with the prestigious Immagini Agency in Rimini, Italy as an illustrator and has painted some of the most important public advertising campaigns to date.   Stefano made his debut in the United States in 2003 as a featured artist at the American Chapter of Safari Club International, where he has since donated for auction more than a half a dozen paintings and has appeared as the cover artist of Safari Magazine three times.  As an accomplished artist, Stefano Cecchini enjoys painting luxury cars, exotic portraits and large-scale images of wildlife from different continents. He thoughtfully studies his subjects in detail to portray, with his own passion, their great beauty. His technique of painting on wood and using oil and tempera creates a trompe l’oeil effect that is admired worldwide. The Grand Bohemian Gallery is proud to exclusively represent Stefano Cecchini and his works.  Have a "lazy cat" sort of day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

My kids, Brier and Forest. April 23, 2014
04/23/14  Glow sticks in plastic eggs for a night time Easter egg hunt.  The hunt was fun, but we did it Saturday night after I got home from work (so, around midnight) I was exhausted and feeling yucky. The three boys enjoyed it and I think we will do it next year.  However, I wanted to take pictures and simply didn't have the energy to do so. I quickly snapped a few, but didn't have the focus to really arrange the eggs and do other things to set up the photos. There can always be another time to try this.  I am still not feeling well. I do realize that if I am not feeling well that this is good, because it means that the chemo is doing what it is suppose to do--which is ultimately to conquer the cancer.  I work til 1pm today and then (!!!) I do not go back to work until 4pm on Saturday. Hopefully, that will give me plenty of time to do nothing.
Beached24 April 2014 -- 114/365Barrington, Rhode IslandI checked the temperature before I went out for my photo and saw that it was 55°F (13°C.)  Nice enough for some street photography, I thought.  Then I stepped outside.  The wind was blowing at gale force, and it was a bitterly cold wind!  Scratch the street photography!  I only had a light spring jacket with me, so it was on to Plan B.  I headed to Haines Point knowing I'd be able to get a photo within a very short distance from my nice, warm car.  Now, you would think that a native Rhode Islander would remember that the wind would be stronger and colder near the water, right?  Not this native Rhode Islander, apparently.  It took all of about 20 seconds for me to conclude that my photo would be the first photogenic subject I found.  That's what you see before you.  I took the photo and, like Brave Sir Robin of Monty Python fame, I bravely beat a very brave retreat.  Next time, I'll check the wind-chill factor, not the temperature.Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, and boost black.  A levels adjustment was added in PSE.

28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.
