Artists Inspired Blog Circle September 2016 – GOLD
Artists Inspired is a group of amazing and talented ladies!! Each month we have started to come together to blog on a theme. This months theme was Gold. I must be honest, and this is a common occurrence that I forget to get my sh** together to actually photograph for the blog. Gold was a hard one for me. I don’t have a lot of or any gold in my home really. I thought about golden hour, but that was not possible due to me running kids around every night for sports. So after all my darn excuses I thought it would be fun to create some gold in Photoshop, to create a painting almost out of my photographs.
I grabbed what are considered gold here in Okinawa. PRODUCE!!! The saying I hear a lot is that breast milk is like gold, but here in Okinawa not only is breast milk gold, but produce. It is so expensive compared to the United States. Its a struggle to eat super healthy because fresh produce can add up. One watermelon sighted on Okinawa was $40!!! I love watermelon but I am not willing to pay that much for one. Which is sad because I have ideas for some cute little sessions with little ones and watermelon.
The onions and garlic aren’t necessarily too expensive, but those tomatoes are spendy. I know they aren’t gold colored either, but like I said it was what I had. And some goldfish and my gold zipper.
On another note, life is like gold. Treat it as such. I’ve had several experiences in the last year, year and a half that have left me appreciating my babies even more and the life that I have with them. They may drive me insane, but they are gold to me and I love them dearly. I am so blessed to have four beautiful and healthy children.
