This one seems to be getting a lot of looks on my flickr page. And, is available as a notecard.

Now back to our exciting game of hide-n-seek...Have a dandy(lion) night.

Winter Goodness

There is so much I would like to write about and so many new photographs to share. But, getting ready for the art show is consuming my week. For right now, I will just share these two newest winter photographs. Both are available in my Etsy Shop as fine art notecards. Though very different subjects, they are wonderful compliments to eachother.


Etsy Front Page!

My little "Blue Bird" is always looks so proud when he makes the Etsy front page. This morning it is the notecard version of this photograph mixed in with other beautiful green toned items. If you haven't shopped the new version of Etsy, take a look. There are some great new features!


See you in East Lansing

After much indecision, I have finally decided that I will be once again participating in the MSU Holiday Show, December 2-3, 2007 at the Michigan State University Student Union in East Lansing, Michigan. I am not sure where my booth will be at this time (though my guess is that I will be tucked away in the far back corner, as punishment for my procrastination in sending my application.)

Anyway, I hope you will come visit, with over 200 booths this show is a great place for holiday shopping. Please grab a program when you enter the building, and seek out my booth. I would be happy to see all of your faces and thank you for your support this year!



My daughter has been eyeing this picture for weeks, and keeps asking when we get to "decorate" it. So, we finally did today, and Voila!
Christine in all of her 1960's loveliness. I love her glasses, red shoes, the many stars on her dress (courtesy of N.J.), and that great Mae West quote. She is available as a notecard or greeting card on my website.



Occasionally, I submit my photographs to JPG magazine for inclusion in their monthly magazine. One of their themes for an upcoming issue is "Embrace the Blur", for which I submitted my "Purple Morning" photograph. Now, here's where I really need your help!

Lots, and lots of VOTES would help me get into the magazine, and this month getting into the magazine means winning a new Lensbaby 3G! I want a Lensbaby more than any other piece of photo equipment. I am about to start carrying around a sign that says "will work for lensbaby". So, please save my children the embarrassment and go vote now! (You will have to register with JPG, but it is quick, and for a good cause. Thanks!)


Golden Light

Photography captures the light, and tells its story. This is the story of the last of the great autum day. 60 degrees, just before sunset. A day of golden light, twisted trees, milkweed seeds blowing in the wind, and a little nest, whose owners probably knew that cooler days were just around the corner.


Five Red

Time to start the weekend, but I wanted to add one last photo to my shop before I did. This tree turned out just as I hoped (something that rarely happens). Sepia toned, except for the 5 remaining red apples. (It is hard to see from this little image, but they are vibrant in the actual photograph.) I think this would look gorgeous in a large size, to make the apples really shine.

Autumn's End

This morning started off bright and sunny, but then the dark winterish clouds arrived, and inspired me to complete this photograph. Autumn's End is a mix of my original photographs, creating a wonderful vintage feeling.

This evening I will be participating in Etsy's Friday "Happy Hour" and offering Free Shipping for all items in my shop until Etsy goes offline tonight for the weekend of upgrading. (Just add "Happy Hour" in the notes section of the checkout, and wait for an updated invoice. )


Happy Morning #2

Oh, Etsy how kind you are to me. Two days of front page bliss. My little Blue Bird and I thank you!


Happy Morning

Now that the Etsy front page changes daily it is fun to wake up and see what will be featured next. I always discover great new artists. This morning I got a special treat, my Livingston Road photograph (bottom right) mingling with some very lovely artwork.


Supersize Sale

Throughout November I am having a sale on my largest photographs, 22" x 30" .
Regularly $200, now $135. (with FREE U.S. shipping!) Choose from any photograph on my website or shop. These photographs are created using Hahnemuhle fine art paper. They have a soft, velvety matte finished, and look stunning when framed.

When purchasing, please email me the title of your choice, and I will send you an updated invoice. (or just use the shop link above.)


Photo Friday- Light

I had just finished this photograph for a client when I received the photo Friday word of the day "Light". I love the way the sunlight catches on the petals and stem.

It isn't even winter yet, and I am dreaming of spring. This new photo of cherry blossoms, soft texture, and vintage postcard text can be found in my etsy store.
