Simple Pleasures by micklyn


Small (23.2" x 14.0")

Available to buy on…

I’ve been playing with flowers, light, colour and texture. This is a single azalea blossom.

I combined multiple exposures in Photoshop, and used some shots I took of an old canvas, for texture.

Camera Model Canon EOS 500D
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
