Fine Art Friday … Soft Pink

I’ve got Valentine’s on the mind!  I keep thinking about all the colors that represent this holiday like red and pink.  Last week I showed a vibrant deep red Rose, gosh that one is a favorite of mine.  This week I keep thinking about these Soft Pink Peony’s that I…

One Snowflake

Couple of days ago we had a pretty good snow storm come through our area.  Think we got around 12 inches of snow!  While my daughter and I were watching it snow huge flakes outside we noticed they were sticking to our sliding glass door and you could see their different…

The Print Shop

Photography is a passion of mine.  I have been at it for quite a long time now and have collected hundreds of images over the years.  Last year I decided I was going to start organizing my collection and put them out there for all to see.  Out of that…

One Month From Today

My daughter is turning 11 in exactly one month.  She’s turning 11!!  I feel like we are going into a new stage with this birthday.  Her behavior is different, her attitude is different, and she just isn’t a little girl any more.  It’s weird how it kind of just happened…

Fine Art Friday … Window

A few years ago I did a Window Project.  This was my own project that I created.  It came about that at that time when I would see old windows I often wondered what all went on behind them and who all had looked out of them.  I searched out…

Thimble & Thread

For Christmas I received a sewing machine!  Pretty much any other year I wouldn’t be so excited about getting a sewing machine.  I’ve been resistant to the idea of owning one for all of my adulthood so far.  I really have never enjoyed sewing but over the last year there…

Prints are a Piece of an Artist’s Heart

Every time I see a print come out of the printer I fall in love.  There is nothing like holding onto a piece of art in your hands.  Every little detail that goes into making that print is meticulously thought about.  It starts with an idea, then the execution of…
