Songs that I’m listening to this morning while working with photography and/or creating designs…

I was competing in a PDGA sanctioned disc golf tournament on a warm day with mild winds during the summer of 1999. The event was held at Cold Brook Park, located in Climax, Michigan, between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.
At that time, organizers commonly added six alternate baskets to the 18-hole layout, in order to accommodate a larger field of players. The first new basket in this expanded 24-hole format followed the 16th hole, and was a short birdie opportunity along the edge of Portage Lake.
Everything seemed fine as our group approached the tee pad. The wind was calm and there weren’t any trees as obstacles, only a water hazard to avoid along the right edge of the fairway.
And then, it happened.
From out of nowhere, a small gaggle of geese flew closely overhead at a high rate of speed! They couldn’t have been more than 10-feet above the ground, riding the leading edge of a weather system. We all ducked, rising again only to be immediately greeted by headwinds of approx. 30 miles per hour, sustained for the remainder of the tournament.
So much for an easy shot – now, the water loomed large.

It’s that time again. Plans made. Boxes packed. Moving soon. Always an adventure!
I thought I’d share information about a few artists online with whom I’ve enjoyed interacting over the years. Guests are encouraged to visit their respective sites, and, if so desired, inquire about an opportunity to purchase their artworks. I’ve also included quotes as descriptions – in their own words. Enjoy the creativity of these featured artists!!!
Tiffany Arp-Daleo | Contemporary Art
Tiffany Arp-Daleo has over 20 years experience painting in San Diego, Ca. Working primarily with acrylics and oils in abstract and mixed media, she has developed a unique painting style described as Bohemian Abstract. Her paintings will catch your eye with bold contrast, gobs of rich color, and layers of texture.
North Liza Lane | Painting, Illustration & Graphic Design
North Liza Lane is a growing body of work originating from inspiration, and the creative desire to contribute to the greater good through images of thoughtful wonder. My focus is to offer a possibility, or the first chapter of a story that allows the viewer to create an ending, and maybe a moment of self discovery. Currently I combine realism with abstract to reflect the layers of life and the constant information offered through our individual and collective experiences.
Randi Grace Nilsberg | Art Photography
A piece of art on the wall brings atmosphere to a room. With digital textures I add a little mystery and flair to my nature photos, a painterly effect that makes them unique. I hope my art lets you drift away for a moment, to good memories or into a dream for the future.
Natalie Baca | Artist + Designer
Natalie Baca is an artist and designer, who loves to incorporate “found” objects into her pieces. After leading an exciting path in the fashion world in New York City and traveling the world with the marketing of new products, Natalie finally decided there was a need for a career change. She picked up some broken tiles and paint and began a new career in the art world. With no formal training in art, she taught herself through experimenting and trial and error. Her love for texture, color, and patterns can be seen throughout her work.
Thanks for stopping by!
Finally, I signed up for an annual pro membership at kelbyone.com, an online photography training program, which also covers Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom. I’ve already watched my first half-hour course this morning, and look forward to further developing my skillset.
