Blank Slate

For days now I have been trying to get myself back into normal routines. I have tried creating composite photographic art, taking photographs, Drawing, painting, writing, blogging and even posting on Facebook. Yet with each attempt it is as if I am staring at a blank slate.

If it were not for the fact that I have been able to continue creating artwork for clients and complete a composite photographic art piece I started just before my husband passed away in February, I would wonder if my creativity didn't die with him. But I know it is just dormant and will eventually rise again. To try and hurry it along I am going to blog, even if these blog posts don't seem to fit my normal theme of things.

I was going to try and participate in last weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday at Ramblings and Photos but although I had taken a few shots for the hunt my mind kept coming up blank for the final prompt, then I realized I had missed the entry cut off.  So I figured I would post what I did find here as a way to get back to blogging.

This is a photo of the front of my new home with my daughter and son-in-law.

My Son-in-law is in the Navy so now I will be living the life of a military dependent. 

I love the fragrant aroma of sauteed apples and onions.

 Luckily the trees out front were full of beautiful pink blossoms.

Since I was obviously clueless at finding a shot for this prompt, I will share this obvious composite art piece that I completed this week. Luckily for me it required no new creative thought as I had already chosen the three photographs I wished to combine and decided how I wanted the finished artwork to look back in January, so it was just a matter of putting it all together.

Somewhere along the line I somehow missed the fact that your husband recently passed away. I don't know any more of the story than that - - - but just want to express (even at this late date) my sympathy to you.

The house that you now call home is absolutely LOVELY with all those flowering bushes, the white picket fence, the inviting shaded walk, and the shutters. Love it.

PS - I BROKE my own rule of not leaving comments where word veri exists since I did want to express my condolences to you.
