Your Own Art Vocabulary - I Love Hands!

One of the many things I have learned from Kelly over the years is about each of us having our own "art vocabulary".  An art vocabulary can be made up of words, phrases, colors, objects, and symbols that specifically "speak" to us.  My art vocabulary consists of hearts, hands, flowers, and women (in all different shapes and colors).  Recently, I took all of these shots and tried to focus on specifically the hands as the main subject.  I have interesting hands - they are bigger than your average woman's hands, but I have long, thin, and crooked fingers (I have my Aunt Vera's hands).  I have very, very tiny wrists, so my hands and wrists do not match well.  My husband, on the other hand, has the most beautiful hands I have EVER seen on a man.  My dad's hands and feet were beauties too.  In this photo, I captured part of my face and left hand. 

Here are my hands cradling a peony.   Peonies are my favorite flowers.  Believe me, it is NOT very easy to take a shot like this when you are holding a flower with both hands and your camera is snuck in between them, ready to shoot.

As the great bard, William Shakespeare, once said, "A rose by any other name would still smell so sweet."  Now, this was much easier since it only involved me using one hand to prop up this rose, freeing me to capture the shot with my camera.

And another shot of the peony in both hands look.  Except this time, I changed the setting to only capture the peony as the main attraction.  If you look closely, you can see my hands in the background.
