Happy Birthday Mountain Man!

Today we've been celebrating Johny's birthday.  It's been a great day so far, relaxing and enjoying our fire while we watch to see if he might get some birthday snow (just a few blustery flurries so far, the clouds are north and south of us, just not on top of us).  Later we will be venturing into town for a little shopping and then a nice dinner at Lucio's, our favorite fine Italian restaurant (I love their escargot appetizer, so buttery and garlicky, I hope they have it tonight...I know, this is one of those things you either love or hate, to me, they are delectable).

In honor of his birthday, I thought I'd share some of his artwork.  He begins with photographs and manipulates them to create unique compositions.  You can see more of his creations at A Splash of Pixel Dust.  Johny personally selected these photos to share with you...I hope you enjoy!

This is our friend's daughter, chasing chickens.

Time to get back to the birthday boy!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

Happy Birthday to Johnny. Escargot sounds good. It's been a long time (I bet 25 years) since I've had some. I enjoyed the art work. I especially liked the one that was mostly black and white, with just a hint of colour of your woods. - Margy
