There may be something to salvage here : my inner child gets to play out some more.

New people have shown up on here and started following and this got me thinking. Very dangerous that for this butterfly brain. Perhaps, this blog deserves to live. Some of you may recall I have been keeping it – letting it go – for a while now.

I already blog on my main blog Write Dorne, but maybe my inner child is asking for some extra time to play. I’m not quite ready to grow up – nor go home for bedtime.

I’m sorting through the old toys and boxes in the attics. Memories are  flooding back and I’m wondering do I still fit into that beautiful old, favourite dress? If not, let’s make some alterations – or make it into something else completely different.

Let’s get creative!

I’ll get the paints out and paint to my heart’s content. And all of those photographs may find somewhere to live – rather than just in a computer folder.

And when I’ve done making art on my laptop – let’s be brave and put it up on here.

Let’s play and see what happens, who comes to join in and what games it leads to.

 

Welcome and thank you to my new followers.

Thanks for dropping by.

See the beauty: the sun doesn’t need to always shine.

It was a grey day and the heavens had opened…on my poor hubby on his mobility scooter!

But afterwards, there was a wonderful light. So I took some pictures.

That’s it for now.

I apologize for being rather absent from here of lately. I will try to keep up: famous last words!

Thanks for stopping by.

Are you into computer art? Take a look at these.

butterfly-blog-with-c.jpgIf I can’t get my paints and brushes out to play with, then I love to indulge in a little computer art. There are some amazing apps available these days and they don’t cost the earth.

The above image was generated using  my photographs and SuperPhoto –   the full version, which was less than a fiver.

Here are some more.

That’s enough of my photographs/ artwork for one post.

If you get a chance to try out the numerous photography apps, I’d recommend it. Only… just be prepared to be playing with them a longgggggg time! They’re extremely addictive.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great evening.

Dorne. 🙂

Venturing out of the woods.

forestBack in March of 2014 I was in the process of setting up a new blog. Eventually, I settled on another name, Write Dorne. On this blog I write about my life as a freelance writer.  Click on Write Dorne, if you want to take a peek at this blog; everyone is welcome.

But, I also have a passion for photography and painting.  Just recently I feel that my artwork and photographs have been detracting from my writing, on my blog.

So, when I realised that this abandoned blog  actually had visitors, likes and comments; and after I’d kicked myself for being so stupid, I decided that I would get to work on here.

This is not to say that my artwork [laughable] and photographs won’t appear on Write Dorne: they will; and sometimes posts from there will guest on here.

I just think that it’s time to come out of the woods and separate things a little. That’s the plan anyhow.

So, thanks for visiting and have a great day.

Dorne 🙂
