Hiatus

Hello friends!

I must apologize for my seemingly rude behavior of late. I am so sorry I have not been responding to your comments, questions, and emails! Besides losing access to my email and login information, I have been dealing with some off internet things that are consuming more of my time than I would like. I am not ceasing my creative pursuits, though. I only consider this a hiatus.

In the meantime, I’m back on a fresh PC and have access to my WordPress site again (of course) so if you wish to keep leaving comments and/or questions please feel free! I will still be checking in as often as I can!

 

Keep creating,

What’s it Like

There's a pretty picture of some yellowish leaves here. It's pretty. Trust me.More pretty yellowy leaves.

What’s it look like where you live?

This leaf is red. And I have no idea if it's upside down or not. THESE LEAVES ARE RED AND ORANGE

P.S. Been hibernating.

The best part about visiting a beach in January is that no one else is stupid enough to visit a beach in January.

Except for this one guy, standing in the frigid water throwing his net out repeatedly. It’s roughly -11°F back home, so I know a little about being cold. But how this guy could stand in the ocean, clad in only a t-shirt and shorts, I cannot fathom.

Couldn’t get the nice clear skyline shot I wanted so what’s a girl to do but roll with it. BOKEH BABY.

At the Airport

Airport sunset 5 Karissa Cole 2014

I’m in love with the colors of sunset.

There’s a small airport a few miles from where I live. Its big open field is a great place to watch the sunset, which is precisely what I did yesterday. I pass this airfield on my way home from work every day and I’ve wanted to stop and watch the sunset for a while. I finally got my chance :)

Magnitude

I needed a quick dose of color. LOTS of color.

Magnitude K Cole

 

I had some free time after dinner. There are too many planets in this one, but I liked the one in the corner and I liked the big one…I just couldn’t pick one.

The thought occurred to me to call this piece “Magnitude.” As soon as I decided this, though, all I could hear was Vector (of Despicable Me) saying “I go by the name of Vector. It’s a mathematical term, represented by an arrow with both direction and magnitude. Vector! That’s me, because I commit crimes with both direction and magnituide. OH YEAH.”

Tha’s my brain for you.
