The Little Red Spot

While I did some investigative work for this week's Inchie, with an emphasis on red spots, I found some beautiful embroidery work of Jupiter. Very intricate work. I also found the flag of Japan, and I didn't want to do something, well, just so ordinary. I'd like to do some collage work, but that didn't really fit into my schedule today. Something about Hurricane Norbert coming to town. Yippee!

I was also thinking about the red dots that artists have been known to put on sold artworks and sometimes not sold, to try the psyche of an art collector--people want what they can't have. So, kind of in that vein, I slapped a red dot on a photograph I took of some red rocks of Arizona.
The story of that hike will have to wait for another day, but suffice to say I survived to tell the tale (no, really). I call the photograph, "Perseverance," that little juniper is probably twenty years old, but it's has had to put up with a very extreme environment.
Thanks for taking the time to view my work and for all your kind comments on previous inchies. Be sure to check out all the creative people at EIM. Have a brilliant day!

    1. And sometimes it works, and sometimes it's just something to do. If you've ever done an artshow and have nothing to do for hours on end, it's an interesting psychological and social experiment. Thanks for your kindness, have a brilliant day! c

    1. Thank you so much, but truth be told: ONLY the photograph is my own work, the others are just investigations I found on Google. It's a concept that I worked through, although I'd love to try embroidery like that. Thanks for your kind comments, c

  6. Thank you, JL! Hugo Martin of the LA Times says you can't call yourself a photographer if you don't have a photograph of the Wave. I've been there twice and I still don't, this is as close as I got! I'm pretty happy with this result. Have a brilliant day! c
