Plants and flowers move. When you work, as I do, on form, color and detail of a particular subject, you are certain to be surprised. Buds open too soon. Flowers turn toward the sun, intensify in color, drop their petals. Leaves grow, curl or shrivel. Some subjects dry up before I can capture them on paper or canvas. The light is not always right.
To control the forces of nature, I sometimes rely on photography.

I'm seeing things!

I took a snapshot of a tree limb that had fallen the other day and was hoping to draw it today, but now that I look at it... 

all I can see is...

a dog face :)

or, if I turn it the other way

 a dog face :)

and then there is a little bear

looking out of a little hole in the tree limb!

Maybe if I turn it...

It's hard to "unsee" once you "see" things!
