Twisted palms and awards


These two palm trees seemed to have a thing for each other. So we decided to create a painting for them using the Triqui Paint action.

And we were very grateful for the kindness of Asta at Hyperenergy and Other Obstacles for awarding us the bottom two awards! Thank you, Asta! Then, Mary at Mary's Detroit Photo Blog gave us the same two awards, but she made them into her own beautiful creation!

Thank you both very much. Please check out Asta's and Mary's very interesting and exciting blogs!

Congratulations! I called D. about the property in Ocala. It's $500,000 for 5 acres. It's not selling, but the price is not coming down. We'll appreciate our 10 acres more and more. Thanks again for the info.

To answer you question about riding horses---all my girls (I had 4) ride and did gaming when they were younger. Only Kylee and her Mother game now. My youngest showed English. And they all but one have horses now. I always said they rode before they were born. I never competed but just liked to ride. My eldest lives on a huge cattle ranch belonging to her husbands family (4 generations) and they do all the cattle work on horseback. So I guess one would say horses are here to stay. We have 3 horses and 2 ponies on the place here. MB

Congrats on your awards -- quite deserving!

Leif Hagen said...

Hey, why didn't you photoshop hand blown glass balls and Christmas lights into this picture to make it more "artsy-fartsy?" Just curious

James said...

Congratulations! and those palms are pretty cool.

Halcyon said...

The effect on this photo is really nice.

Congrats on all of your awards!

Congratulations!

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - I was waiting for you to do the glass balls 'cause I figured you'd know more about those than anyone!

And Xmas is so far away, I'm not going to worry about it until next August!

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scenes - Wow, Mary Beth, no wonder your daughter and granddaughter are so good. It must be a wonderful life. I love horses, and Ocala is the "Horse Capitol of the World," but have never ridden extensively.

Thanks for the insight!

And have a great day!

Jacob said...

@ Tapirgal - Thanks. These two have been together for some time. It's just, well, I don't like displays of affection in public... ;-)

Daryl said...

Nice effect ..

Dan J. said...

That is a cool effect on those trees. It is much cleaner than a lot of the paint effects I have seen. Congrats on the two awards. :-)

I really like the effect (I don't always like paint effect stuff but this works really well). I'd like to see it unpainted sometime too :)

Very striking photo effect! It looks like one of those paint by numbers kits that was so popular back in the 50's.
