If this collage is made of the things you can see now, I know you are alright and that the winter and mud seasons are finally over.

Spring on the farm! - I just love this collage!

katie jane said...

Wow! I'm impressed. This is great and looks so good.
Wonderfull "wall art" poster.

Honour said...

Lovely! Now, you should look at the collage and look at your top three names for your farm, and see which of them "speaks" to you and the collage! (that is, if the pictures are from the farm)... I like how you've put the combination of pictures together ...

Sara Lechner said...

this is an interesting thing to do. i notice that you have to work also in terms composition to do so, because of the overall effect. i must give it a go some time...

Natalya said...

great collage... thank goodness spring is here! actually almost summer I guess..

Kim said...

Well, Suki, I would say your practice has been wildly successful!

You are just full of inspiration!

Peace

Wow thanks for all the comments, everyone. Yes, these are clips from things around me right now. Spring has arrived and flowers are opening.

Elizabeth, good to hear from you again. I read your post but didn't comment. Will return to comment soon.

HOnor, good idea. Try to "groke" it from inside me while using the photos and poll results as a concrete framework. I mean the name.

I did take the photos that are in the collage but Picasa program is what put them up there and arranged them. It just clicked the "collage" button. I guess typical number of photos is 9 but i had more than that in my file so picasa arranged the duplications etc. There may be a way I can set it up differently, but it takes me a long time to find such things. I was inordinately proud though of downloading the Picasa program and finally, after a number of tries, getting the collage made.

Bravo! Glad I could help. Isn't it fun, getting all those bits of beauty into one place. Enjoy!
And thanks for sharing Your Beauty with us.

and what a grand job you made of it too.

I love the sweet greens blending together in your collage.

Great piece of art.

Cris in Oregon said...

This is great Suki.
Looks like fun. I should try it too sometime.

San said...

Suki, I like the way you've varied the perspectives so nicely. And that one frame with the red barn anchors it all. You have a good eye.

Cestandrea said...

Hi Suki, this collage has a calming effect, I love all the green in it, it is soft and beautiful!
Very nice to look at each detail in it..
Thanks Suki for you alwys so interesting and kind comments on my blog which inspire me a lot:)

Andrea
PS I also found your comment on Kim's post about "intuition" very interesting and it makes me want to make paper... I wish we lived just some miles away and you could show me,
love
Andrea

I'm always impressed with people who can do all the 'techie' stuff. I stumble around it, occasionally get lucky,,,,and get by with a little (okay, a lot of)help from my friends. Kim, for one!
:-D

Perfect Spring Collage! You are in an awesome place! That warm rock in the photo below must be a great contemplation and cloud watching spot.

sukipoet said...

Lynn, thanks again for helping me with the Picasa. I have always loved the collages you've done.

FY thanks. But as I said above I can't really take any credit other than taking and choosing the photos as the picasa program did the rest.

Britt-Arhild, yes I guess the spring greens really show here. It was fun to make this collage.

Cris, thanks for stopping by. Once you download the Picasa program it is relatively easy to set up the collage.

San, thanks for saying I have a good eye. I like to hear such things. I can't really tell so much myself.

Andrea, I'd love to show you how to make paper. It's so easy though as I said wet and messy at least the way I do it. And the results are so gorgeous.

Babs, it would be a stretch for me to call myself a "techie." I stumble a lot too. HOwever, I am persistent. If i fail a few times i return on another day and try again and usually I eventually figure it out. But thanks for thinking of me that way. It gives me a chuckle.
