cat scratching filter

I see visual interest in objects that I observe in my home. I look for common everyday functional objects and present the visual interest that I see in this object, like this round cat scratching circle. I placed the scratching circle in a home window and took a photograph. I think that the window screen showing through the holes in the scratching circle is visually interesting. John Foster Dyess

This is a photograph of a green paint shape on my porcelain paint palette. I like the shape and texture of this green paint on my palette. I will make a color print from this digital photograph. I think there are many visual images around me to choose from to use as a photograph or painting.

I think the words in Blind Willie Johnson’s song ” Everybody Ought to to Treat a stranger Right” , Should be read by members of all religious faiths. Look him up on the internet, if you don’t know this singer ,songwriter.

Attached are drawings that are based on photographs that I took several years ago when visiting San Miguel, Mexico, during the *Dia de los Locus parade.

Above are two images of the Los Locus Parade in San Miguel , Mexico.

Street Vendor selling flowers and plants.

*Dia de los Locos, is a day that encourages our madness to express itself in costumes, satire, folklore, and music. In the baroque town of San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, this colorful festival—officially named San Antonio de Padua Festival —swoons the expressive soul to detach from normalcy and beguile them into celebrating the bizarre.

This is my second photograph of a drinking glass on a counter top. I enjoy seeing light and dark shapes created by sunlight shining through my kitchen window. This photograph was taken at 10:58 Am on November 8, 2020

This is my photograph of a drinking class and it’s shadow and light refractions. The vertical bars of light were created by light coming though window blinds. I took this photograph on November 6, 2020. I have taken many photographs of objects sitting on this kitchen counter top with a focus on shapes created by light and shadow.
