Description The name Samhain is derived from Old Irish and means roughly summer's end. A harvest festival with ancient roots in Celtic polytheism, it was linked to festivals held around the same time in other Celtic cultures, and continued to be celebrated in late medieval times.
Keri Foreman, Seattle Member Since September 2010 Artist Statement In music, a fugue is a composition where two or more voices build on a theme that recurs frequently. In the course of the composition, multiple variations of that theme are played and built on again. This process occurs with businesses too. Sometimes the theme is simple, sometimes it is complex. Either way, the player needs a good conductor to guide the musician.
I started learning about art and photography from both my parents in very early on in my life. In 1986, I got my first SLR camera (a Minolta X-170 which I still love using today.) I also use a digital Kodak. I manipulate my images using a combination of Photoshop, The Gimp, Picasa, and on a rare occasion Illustrator, and just let the image tell me what it wants to do. Colors and textures of nature fascinate me, and so my concentrations are on those subjects.
