Tomorrow, 2/5 is Conscious Movement here in Sarasota and I am so looking forward to it. This is the closest thing I have found to the modern dance improv I did growing up and for many years after, that I love. The photo above is a Photoshop version of 2 photos I took at the last conscious movement event. I love taking just a few quiet photographs during the hour and a half and then bringing them into Photoshop and seeing how I can tweak them artistically. Tomorrow we may have visitors from St. Pete join us, so I think there will be lots of energy and spirit dancing in the room!
Today, I went to a wonderful Zentangle® class taught by certified Zentagle instructor, Mary Masi. I met Mary through Conscious Movement and Nia classes! Here are the two 3" x 5" tiles I completed in Mary's excellent class today . . .
I also visited a new studio and Gallery called Artspace on Anna Maria Island this afternoon. My friend Cheryl who hosted my collage class earlier this week, told me about Deborah and her husband who are opening this awesome space. It is bright and beautiful, with a gorgeous view of the Anna Maria Bay.
|The Bayfront Community Center is a really fabulous space, with wood floors, tons of light.|
|Tweaking the photo with a Hard Mix filter makes for a very interesting look.|
|We took several photos of our bare feet for a new Dance SRQ logo!|
|I put those 2 photos together by treating them as layers.|
|The windows were overlooking the Sarasota Bay and it was quite amazing. Dancing in front of the windows and looking out over the water, I felt and still feel that I am living in paradise.|
|Another combination, photo collage - two layered photos|
|You can achieve some wild colors via photoshop - I do like how it looks like paint.|
|This one is my favorite out of all my efforts and I chose this photo |
for my 300th upload to blipfoto! (my photo journal)
Hope you are all doing well, sending love -lenna
