ArtformTheHeart - Photographer and artist

ArtformTheHeart says:
I am an amateur photographer from Scotland, though in the last few years I have also spent a lot of time in the USA. My camera is a simple P&S Samsung S1050 (I don't consider myself good enough yet to invest in a DSLR). I chose zazzle because it gives me the opportunity to showcase both my photography and artwork, and to potentially make a profit from it.
That Friday feeling
It was cold and raining outside and I was looking for indoor projects to photograph when I remembered about my little wooden mannequin.
This was another rainy day project. It's a composite of a cropped shot of Lennox Castle (now abandoned) and an angel gravestone from the Kirk O' Shots. It was just a bit of fun and to see if I could create a semi-realistic ghost photo.

I find inspiration everywhere and as a result my work is very varied; from semi-nude pencil drawings and paintings, to funny digital art and photographs, to landscapes, abstract and pop art.

This weeks photographer is from Tennessee on the other side of the pond. Tnbackroads love for the Great Smoky Mountains, wildlife and Tennessee Backroads inspired the products you will find in their gallery. You will find lots of "Smokie" products along with backroads wildflowers, exotic animals and all-occasion and inspirational greeting cards. Below is just a small sample of this beautiful work, I especially like the calendar format portfolio of selected views of this breathtaking scenery and wildlife, including some great shots of bears.
