Hand in Hand...

Original photo taken with i-phone on Naples beach; edited on i-pad.

All I could think of when I saw this couple was "hand in hand on the edge of the sand..."

I have been playing arounds with different apps, brushes, textures to create collages with my i-phone photos.  It's addictive!

This woman was walking along the beach apparently deep in thought.

2014 Travel Journal

Next month my husband and I are going to Budapest, Vienna and Prague.  This will be our  time in these cities.  I'm so excited.

I always make a travel journal for any trip I go on.  I decided to use a monochromatic color scheme - based on old book pages.

 Slide show of my process in creating the journal.

I have a small collection of plaster faces hanging on my studio wall.  I find myself looking at them a lot.

It's a bit of a challenge (for me) to photograph white on white.  Script, texture and vignette added to my original photograph.

Swept Away...

It was love at first sight when I saw these brooms.  Original photo taken in Nova Scotia.

Mini Diva

This diva drives a mini - a Cooper Mini Clubman.  

Our new home has a two car garage - but a very tight fit.  It was necessary for us to trade one of our bigger cars in and buy something smaller.  I don't usually get too excited about a car.  My husband has always been the one to research a new car for us.  The Cooper Mini was my choice.  The model I chose is a little longer than the Mini Cooper.  It has a third door making access to the backseat easier.  I needed something with a big enough area in the back to accommodate the shipping tubes I use for my artwork.  I love it!
