What impresses me about the photos silkenwinds does of animals is not necessarily the technical proficiency, which is clearly there in ...

Jester Of The Birds by SilkenWinds

Birds are a chore to photograph! First, they flit around incessantly; second, they have more or less fixed expressions. Yet, SilkenWind...

Primate Portraits 2 by SilkenWinds

I've been checking out SilkenWinds' photo art for a while, and one of the characteristics of her shots is the "personality" of the anim...

Has It been 11 Months Already?

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 7, 2014, 2:07 PM
Gosh, I find it hard to believe i posted my last journal last August! Where does the time go? In case you're interested, I had major eye surgery in January (vitrectomy and macular hole repair if you care to look it up), which put me off reading, etc. for two months. Then, when I could read again, I spent a LOT of time catching up on my editing and writing, on top of the usual whirl of everyday life.

Whoever thinks retirement is boring never thought to ask me about it! I honestly don't know how I got anything done when i had to work full time. Just driving a school bus as a temp dirver keeps me plenty busy.

Anywho, I'll be posting some new art soon. I'd like to express my thanks to all of you for watching and posting some of my work as favorites and apologize for some delayed responses. You guys rock!

Enjoy the summer and get out and do some of those things you've been meaning to do for fun. You don't have to wait until you're old to get cracking on that "bucket list." In fact, the earlier you start, the more you get to cross off. Life's too short to keep postponing it!

Ciao for now! :)

I'm a (published) author, who loves to take photographs - landscapes, architecture, the changing sky, boats, cars and good, art nudes. I first heard about this site from my daughter, who's on this site too as "Silkenwinds" and she told me about another artist here, "Rah-bop," who has since done the artwork for my children's book, "Crystal, Guardian of Upsidedonia." Since then, I've had fun posting and reading the comments of fellow "deviants." You guys ROCK!

Check out my writing website (below) to see what I'm up to in the writing world. I have several novels, including a kids' book, geared from age 7 to the early teens, but adults will enjoy it too. Along with the original, full-color, wrap-around cover, there are 12 b/w original, internal illustrations of some of the fanciful creatures that inhabit Upsidedonia. E-mail me with your request and I'll personally autograph every copy I send out and include a free, souvenir pen. Now, did J. K. Rowling ever do that for you? :)
