I sprouted a few seeds for an early start in the garden and days later when I looked in my "nursery" the sprouts were practically crawling out. In each image of this series I did layering to give an underground look. This sprout is a Curcurbita Maxima Aladdin Squash. On Sept.6th/2012, this image tied for third place in a contest called; Death and Resurrection.
Born in the pristine wilderness of northern Alberta, Shirley became aware of the beauty and design in nature. It all began by making hundreds of decorative mud pies as a young girl. She was designing pictures and jewellery with seashells in her teenage years, and then moved on to ceramics as a young adult. Shirley always used her creative energy. One constant, though, was her love of photography which began at age 14 when Shirley bought her first camera. Being an art major in the field of education was a big help in improving her photography. After retirement she began selling prints at arts and craft shows. And now Shirley would like to share some of her favorites with you.
