The Road to Happiness Our Home on the North Hill

August 14th, 2013

The Creator Elna Brodie Niccolls featured in Donna's art - Donna just released a chapter of her life as an 11 year old on the North Hill above the Brandon township in about the 1929 to 1934 range. Elna describes life in a home on the prairies in 1929. The piece has been fashioned to reflect natural science and technology and culture of the times. There is also a set of women in there who are described in their roles in the family.

Donna has worked on Elna's writing in a similar fashion to taking her art to a professional form. She has edited, added images, and so on.

A family piece Donna's family will treasure, and yet a public piece to share Elna's heart for what people and home were in her time, this will touch people's imaginations and hearts. The link is provided here to Donna's CreateSpace store:

Please visit my Bugs and Bees Gallery

June 6th, 2012

Please visit the Bees and Bugs gallery in the web link.

The story below refers to Donna's ladybug pictures.

How does a photographer get this shot? This artist laid on her belly in the grass, while her husband mowed around her. She laid among the ladybugs - a population of about 80 for an hour, watching them, predicting their moves, working on manual, and flash clicking, hoping what she saw in the camera would be what she actually got. Yes, she was covered in ladybugs. So was her camera. White she was shooting, there were two ladybugs sitting on top of her camera. So, she went native with the ladybugs, hoping her breath was not disrupting their performance.

When the photographer got up, she was fully damp from the lawn moisture. She played with the little bugs a bit more, till she turned her attention back to flowers. This ladybug looks like he is hanging on above a great fall back into the lawn. What the ladybug does in this predicament is:

1) fall and hang on, so he walks upside down. Those little feet hang on at all cost.
2) He walks across to the next grass tip, and walks across the tips of the grass.
3) He opens his wings and flies down to the base of the grass again to begin his ascent.

I can only think he is eating. There's grass pollen. As he climbs the grass blade, they must be doing something. The ladybugs are covered in little bits of dust, which I think is not dust, but pollen. For this reason, they harvest the grass. Ladybugs love to live where there is leaf cover in the grass. The more foliage left on the grass the better. It gives them cover as they overwinter. Then, in the spring, they all come back out where they hibernated, and off they go. This population was very healthy and happy.

Sales Commitment to a Community Development Project in the Phillipines - Update

April 9th, 2012

I've been reflecting on the coming of Easter as a celebration of the wedding between Christ and the Bride for some time. The bride is mankind. So, I've just been made aware of a need in the Phillipines. As I have a great love for mankind, and I want to do something to celebrate the future wedding reunion of Christ to the bride, I would like to do something for mankind now. This is my Easter present to the Lord. Whether I succeed in selling anything, it is the status of willingness which is important.

For this reason, I dedicate any art sales I have from now till Sunday night midnight (less tax I have to pay) to a community development project in the Phillipines. I recognize any money coming in from now till then as God's not mine, so I will pass it on.

I don't know a whole lot just yet, except a couple details, and that this group of people are living in poverty and disease. However, at a future date, I will repost a request to see if others will join me in donating proceeds of art to rebuild a group of people. I will find out the name of the social cooperative movement and how to donate. I may even make them a website with a donate button if they do not have one.

I do not know if there's going to be a great amount of sales. I cannot predict that. However, if you've been thinking about it, please consider buying my art this week. I would like to use this money to build a water and sanitation system for a group of people and I would like a little extra to begin some sort of trade in a social cooperative movement. I will announce the amount raised and donated on this blog.

I would like to take stock of the local resources and apply my creativity to thinking up things they could make and sell. If there were any engineers or fabrication experts who were willing to contact me or to join in a forum site I could make for release in about 2 months, I would like to put people in touch with this cooperative so that they can make products for export and reinvest in the community.

I studied community development and have a hero in the field - a Catholic priest. These thoughts have remained mostly internal. I welcome the opportunity to bring an inner desire to the forefront and hope that God sells whatever is needed to give this community a start.

For those who do not want to buy art and would donate $2 to this cause, here is a page of mine with a donate button. Copy-paste the link in your browser. http://bookeditorial.ca

Update: There were no sales from this fundraising event. It marks a start I hope as I work to now create a forum.



Frame the Uplifted Lily

Frame the Uplifted Lily

Here are my suggestions for how to frame my image the Uplifted Lily. See the .jpg. I used 2 colors of green for the matte. The image here is about 90 dpi. So, if you think it suites your purposes, download it and think about it for awhile.
