|As some of you already know, I love growing my own vegetables. I have several gardens in my backyard and grow organically. This cabbage among others in one of my gardens is ready to harvest now. I hope you will be inspired to grow your own vegetables and eat healthy pesticide free foods. I find it fun, rewarding and exciting to share my extras with friends who in turn at times share some of theirs with me if they have gardens. I never know what is going to come my way.|
|On a recent trip along the coast of California we came across these beautiful strawberry fields in the city of Oxnard. The farmers plant the colorful flowers all around the rows of fruit to control destructive insects and attract beneficial ones instead of using pesticides. It creates such a gorgeous border for the perfectly aligned rows. Because of the fences surrounding the fields, I could not get as close as I would have liked to take this shot at the perfect angle. After a bit of editing and cropping to get rid of the fences and other unsightly areas, I am pretty happy with the results. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE ORIGINAL sta.sh/01v1jxyq30pr|
Editing was done with Photoshop 5.5.
Poem For My Sweet Friend RazielPoem For My Sweet Friend Raziel by Shirley-Agnew-Art
Where you are my friend, it must be a scary place,
being pursued by a monster with a very evil face,
If I had a magic sword, you know I'd run it through,
for there is nothing in the world that I wouldn't do for you,
You know I am standing with you and there I'll always be,
because my sweetest friend, you mean all the world to me,
Locked away inside yourself, trying so hard to break free,
but just where to find the key is life's greatest mystery,
When things get too scary I'll be standing by your side,
and when monster is most near sweet things I'll whisper in your ear,
You know how much I love you and I'll always be your friend,
I will be standing right here with you until this night does end

The Art of MotivationI Asked: Where do you get inspiration from?
In this poll, I asked you to tell me where you get your inspiration from when you do art. Inspiration is a key factor when it comes to being motivated to do art. Here are some of you answers!
"I listen to music ... The type of music theme determines my drawing..."
I see a lot of artists use music to keep themselves inspired and motivated. I love to see a link to a song in a description - listening helps me connect to that artist and their process. Even though I don't use music, the ability to connect that way is amazing!
"My feelings are the main which inspire my art."
This is really what inspires me to draw too - a feeling. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, emotions can really drive a piece of work and turn one idea into something completely different. They can also completely sta
