I have neglected posting to this blog in favor of my wordpress blog at https://jmba.wordpress.com/ because wordpress is easier for me to find the button to post a new one.  I know that is a lame excuse. But I also note that this profile is linked to the word press blog also. So I am a bit confused on how everything fits together.

I believe these blogs are pretty well hidden on the Internet and seen by very few people, so I do like to keep my facebook and instagram posting more regular.

Here are the link to my facebook and instagram accounts.

Social Media Experimenting

I have been using the free month long trials of Hootsweet, Crowdfire and Statusbrew to help automate posting to social media for the last month. I never figured out how to connect them to this blog, so posting here has been sparse.

The cost to continue these trials is not justifiable to my current business model, although they have allowed me to flood the social media with lots of postings and gain some followers.

I am reverting to a lower volume posting scheme which may not be optimized for time of postings and will take a little more effort.

Here is an image posted today to my www.risingrims.com Today gallery. This one is called Breast of Rock but is actually the beaver head mentioned in Lewis and Clark journals but tilted slightly.

Dance Recital, One of My Favorite Creations Today



This is one of todays favorites that I have titled Dance Recital. 

I think I should have left out the two large background shapes and so the dancing images could play easier with the eye.  My daily practice is not meant to create masterpieces but to deepen my experience and discovery of new techniques and things that work or do not appear to work.

I lack formal art training or the time money and patience to slog through an academic art education. I  enjoy the exploration and discovery of the seat of the pants self education I am pursuing.

Toe Photo Bomb

This image is a combination of a photo I took in Arizona with my toes purposely showing plus some of the bark that I featured in yesterday's and todays images that I photographed on a walk above my back yard.

It sounds kind of funny to talk about a walk above your yard, but here at RisingRims Studios we are at the base of the cliffs we call rimrocks. So literally a couple hundred back from the house the elevation is a hundred plus feet higher. I guess I have to look up at an angle between 45 and 60 degrees to see some sky to the north.

Happy 4th of July

This image is my # 2897 called 3 faced. I spent about half an hour with one of my collectors yesterday trying to find an image they saw that I posted, but they didn't know the date or the image number. You can imagine how difficult it is to find an image among nearly 3000 choices. That is why I like to mention the number. It makes it much easier to find and print for you should you like it.

This image started as a photograph of a face but you can see that it is both right side up, upside down and sideways. Did you ever feel that way? Or did you ever have that impression of someone else. Not a very positive thought, but I loved the colors and overall effect.
