Focus On Life: Observe the Curves



 “In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.”        

~Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

I have found that I am really enjoying the Focus on Life series as every Saturday we get a new prompt from Sally at Studio Sublime.  I have found that these prompts have me paying attention to my surroundings in a whole new way.  

I had no problem finding curves as they are all around me.  The issue was trying to decide just what pic I should use.  I took quite a few pictures of my cats as they sleep in balls, in the shape of their ears.  I took pics of my husband as the muscles in his arms form curves, the stones in the retaining wall next door are curved.  Well you get the picture.  I finally decided to highlight one of my sun/moon mirrors that I have been collecting forever.

  2. Oh gosh... I painted one similar to this years ago. If I still had it or knew where it was I'd send it to you!

    Kitties in warm little balls... sweet curve

  3. That is such a fun photo. The kiddo loves the moon and we always make a point to look for it in the evening. Because of that, moons always remind me of the kiddo and they always bring a smile to my face. :)

  4. Your mirror is beautiful Shaiha. I have a stained glass moon mirror that I got at the Renaissance Festival over 30 years ago. If I had your email address I would sent you a pic of it.

  11. I was out for a night walk a few days ago and the moon was a perfect crescent shape. It would have been a beautiful picture but I'm not a great photographer at night! I was reminded of it when I saw your lovely picture.

  12. Love this - I have one just a bit different than this in my room but didn't even think of the curves within it to photograph! Great choice!
