Starbucks gettin ready

Here are the 1st 2 pics for my display at Starbucks on Colerain Ave...


my 1st adventure alone

HaHaHa! as I set out to go to the woods to take some pictures and clean out the car. Well, over a week ago the woods was really under water. I seen the area and decided to adventure out and take some pictures. As I look at the area, the trees are marked above my head with the mud crusted on the trunks & branches. (Im 4'7" tall)

The mud covered anything under 5' tall

A trail only 1 other person was brave enough to adventure...

One more step and I would have been in mud trouble.

The mud took revenge on me and wont let go of my shoe! At this point I had to decide to walk back to the car barefoot or put my shoe on. After seeing all the geese,duck, bird poop & footprints, I decided to stick my foot back in my shoe and keep getting stuck in the mud.

After all the mud caked to my shoes and getting stuck.....I plan on doing more adventures. Absolutely fun!!


1st Fear almost gone

Essex Studio

This is the most viewed!

Well,as you know I have completed my 1st Art Walk at Essex Studio. The 1st day was terrifying!! Thanks to hubby being by my side. When I walked in the 1st day, I was ok but started feeling like I did NOT belong. You can say I had a mini breakdown...LOL. Hubby was great, he made feel like my stuff was just as good as anyone elses there. The 2nd/last day was so much better. My husband's side of the family came to see, even my mother in law's husband's sister & boyfriend came. I dont think any of them has been to Essex Studio before, so I feel pretty good that they were introduced to this Art Walk. Because of them I was able to say "Hello" as people came by, which was my 1st step of over coming my FEAR. I am really thinking of doing this again in October.

There are so many art medias. My favorite artwork was on the 1st floor in a large studio, his name is Jesse Kramer. He did portraits and they are powerful, lots of emotion to them.

Next, Colerain Starbucks....my photos will be on display for 1 month.


Art Walk @ Essex Studio

yesterday was my 1st day of the Art Walk. I was so nervous. As I was walking to my section, I was viewing all the other artwork. Most were paintings but there were some other photographers and I was really starting to think twice about what I was doing. Others had there stuff on canvas (large Macro) or the paper they printed on was different. I felt that mine was just really plain.... But as I watched the people walk by my stuff, they were looking at some more than others but they were smiling or giggling and making comments that they liked this or that. I was feeling better by the end of the day. Tonight my husband's side of the family will be there which is very cool because they know I like doing photos. My side didnt show which I (unfortunately) expected. My side of the family probably thinks I am a joke, so this photography stuff is just all ME!!

Believe in ME!!
