Re: January 9 --> IMAGES HERE!!!!

and the invitation photo, an origami kangaroo ... larger ref here




and that's all of them!

for a challenge, we are going to invent a new style. everyone has heard of cubism, right? we are going to do 'origami-ism'. see if you can make your painting/drawing look like it was folded out of paper. Have fun!!!!

G-O-O-O-O!!!

Nice images, especially Nye Beach. I was there last fall for a wedding on the beach. Very overcast and drizzly that day, nice to see it with clear weather.

Re: WDE January 19 --> IMAGES HERE!!!!

Love the photos, except too many to choose from

I'll take you up on your challenge, wonder if mine will look more like a folded wet towel?
