Artsy Random-osity

The Good: I won this piece of handcrafted pottery as a door prize on an art studio tour a couple of months ago. I love art tours and winning this treasure was a bonus!

The Random: My older daughter underwent some medical tests near Harrisonburg today. While I was waiting for her, I took a picture of a farm through the window. Apparently there was a coating on the glass and the photo had an odd appearance, almost impressionistic. I decided to add a texture in Photoshop to give it a painterly look.

Sharing with The Barn Collective
The Fun: This tire sculpture in Toms Brook made me smile!


  1. Linda, you are one lucky lady, the pottery is lovely! The 'smoke' hanging in the valley is a great sight. Last year I found a sibling to your smiling tire person. Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you again.

  2. An interesting assortment of captures. I especially like the painterly farm scene.

  3. I like sculpture, there is a fellow nearby that has a yard full

  4. Quite a whimsical tire sculpture, and that barn view is a pretty one!

  5. Congratulations on winning the door prize! What a lovely piece. I like the way your photo turned out after editing. It does look like a painting.

  6. I love your pottery Linda, and the pretty barn shot with the effects. I have seen tire sculptures in the countryside but this one is really neat.

  7. Lucky you to win that...love that last. Makes me smile.

  8. Congrats on your prize, that piece of pottery is truly precious !

    Wishing you the best of weekends,
    I'm sending hugs and my dearest love to you,
    lovely Linda

    XO Dany
