Saturday Snapshot: The White Tree

The White Tree By CRash

First snowmobile trip of the year!  That means lots of snowy pictures. :)  This spot on the mountain was treated to the full force of the wind, so my fingers went numb.  However, all that wind meant that trees like this one got a heavy dose of flocking.

I particularly like this photo because the white tree has a face: two dark vertical spots midway up the tree form the eyes and the larger horizontal spot below them serves as a scowling mouth.  The errant branch sticking out on the left side might be interpreted as a shaking fist.  Overall, I think its expression is akin to: “Get off my lawn, you whippersnappers!”

Saturday Snapshot: First Snow

First Snow of 2012, Mead WA

Photo of the first snowflakes of the year at our house, shot on the night of my birthday using my birthday present: a new Canon digital camera.  It captured falling snow at night, which my old camera would have been hard-pressed to manage.  I did a little more processing on my computer because I liked this one with high color saturation.  Thanks Mom and Dad!

Sunday Speedpaint: Smokey

Happy birthday to my friend Amanda! (4/30)  I drew a one-hour speedpaint of her old cat, Smokey.  I wasn’t able to have a kitty of my own growing up (family allergies), so I was always excited to see Smokey whenever I visited her house.

Again my recorder acted up, so only the ending of the process was saved – the making of the background.  I need to find a new video program that’s less glitchy.
