Desert Hearts - Intro to Pixel Blend

Something I truly believe and remind myself often is - "A lot can happen in a year!" Last year at this time I was on the east coast by myself traveling in a rental car along the Blue Ridge Parkway. After following the BRP from VA to TN I spent a few days in the Smokey Mountains. It was suppose to be in full autumn splendor but instead the frost had quickly turned the leaves brown. So Instead of capturing the reds, oranges and yellows of Autumn I headed to the coast. My goal was to see the snow geese and walk along the beach.

If you have never seen snow geese take off, fly and land in a flock of 1000 or so, I highly recommend you put it on your list. The sight and sound of it is incredible.

One of the last things I did before leaving the Delaware beaches is to draw a heart in the sand and capture it with the Hipstamatic camera app. Shortly thereafter I processed the image and printed it on canvas as it was one of my favorites.

A year later I am walking along a dry river bed in Utah and found a bright red rock that crumbed in my hand. The crumbs were soft and clay like. I thought of how the Native Americans may have used it as dye or something to draw with. So I drew a heart of red on a sand colored rock and captured it with the Hipstamatic.

Today thinking of my favorite saying, "All you need is Love" I created this image.

I am very fortunate to have so much love in my life and I wanted to express that appreciation!

  1. I once saw a picture of a lady with a baby
    Southern lady, had a very, very special smile
    We are in the middle of a change in destination
    When the train stops, all together we will smile
    Oh, meet me in the morning.
    Won't you meet me in the middle of the night, night, night
    Everybody know the mornin' time is comin'
    Don't it make you wanna feel alright. Ah, ah, yeah
    Make me feel alright. Fly now, baby
    Get to fly, yeah. Fly now, baby
