It's officially been summer for nearly a week. Interestingly, the weather the past couples days has felt more like early autumn...low humidity and very pleasant warm (but not hot) temperatures. By the week's end both of those factors will rise, with storms moving in. Either way is quite fine. The... Continue reading

While in the garden, taking pictures this morning, a car pulled over to the curb. An older woman rolled down her window and told me how much she likes what I've done in my yard. She said she couldn't garden any more because of an injury she sustained many years... Continue reading

Today at counseling, I was expressing to my therapist, well, many things. In a round about way, I came to pinpoint an issue that is touching many aspects of my life. It seems I continue to have difficulty with closure around the subject of the end of my marriage, my... Continue reading

I took a little trip up to Washington for a few days. It was a lovely time with friends, enjoying deep conversation, fun and beauty. Interestingly, I only came home with a couple rolls of film. That being said, the adventure wasn't specifically to make photographs. Still, here are a... Continue reading

I wanted to see what it's like to embed a video on my blog...apparently, it works! addendum... here's oldie... I have all sorts of thoughts, when I go back to viewing old videos...or photographs. There is the tug on my heart, a sense of loss. But really, what's lost?... Continue reading

Ugh, ugh, ugh... Okay...let me back track... Heyoh! Just checkin' in here. It's been nearly a week and I have all these great intentions to build this blog into something unique and interesting, that will in turn feature all my other endeavors which will, in turn, lead me on a... Continue reading

...I was at my old house. There was group of people, some family, others who were unfamiliar to me. We were in the space that I knew as the dining room, only it was much larger in the dream...and empty, except for the people. I noticed the slope of the... Continue reading

The past week has been a bitch for me. Try as I might, it's been hard to keep myself centered and confident. In a youtube video I recorded yesterday, I mentioned how I felt my emotions finally pushed through the well intentioned positivity I've been a wall of water... Continue reading

Didja miss me?? I jest, I jest. It was a whirlwind weekend for Mother's Day. Hard to believe I was on a plane heading west at exactly this time last week. Well, technically I was headed southwest to Atlanta and then would be traveling slightly north and west on the... Continue reading

Yay! Okay, perhaps I get far too excited by this. But...I delight in some successful pinhole and toy cam film. My color pinholes from pinhole day are fun, as well as my Holgas from Longwood gardens. Sharing to follow below! In other news, I'm gearing up for a spontaneous trip... Continue reading

I was inspired to create a couple of cyanotypes, impromptu-like, this week. At the ready was sensitized paper, sunlight and pressed botanicals...and for whatever reason I was moved into the process. Now, the paper had been sitting since last year, and although it was in a dark drawer, I still... Continue reading

It was Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day yesterday. This was my eleventh (I think) year participating. I exposed one roll of black and white film (Ilford Delta 100) in my Zero, and set the frame size to 6 x 9. In the pinholga I had a roll of Kodak Ektar (and... Continue reading

I decided to make a run to the nursery today and do some work in the garden. Having spent the morning (after 6am aikido practice in the park) indoors addressing art/work tasks, it was too lovely a day to not be outdoors. This being the new moon was an added... Continue reading

It's been...oh, maybe four days since the sun has shown. The temps are slightly warmer the 60's rather than the 50's so I guess that's an improvement of sorts. feels like the pacific northwest or something! That being said, after a few years living here, a streak of... Continue reading

Finally got around to updating my website...check it out There's a new section for all the encaustic pieces I've been making, plus I've added more current (although not 2017 as yet) cyanotypes. It took a while and there is still some fine tuning to be done, but I've made... Continue reading

It's that time of year again...when I start posting lots of pictures and videos of my garden. Truth be told, I started with the videos a few weeks ago! The spring has been on again, off again starting early (a very warm February, followed by a more average March), meaning... Continue reading

I hadn't thought about it being Thursday, therefore #tbt day. The "throw back Thursday" share isn't as noticeable to me as it once was. "As it once was" could mean two weeks ago in this day and age. Anyway, I hadn't participated in some time. I do so randomly, I... Continue reading

Today I finally returned to art making and completed another 12 x 24 photo encaustic to add to my growing series. Before I work on any more of these, I'd like to expose new film for the purpose. There are still a few images of this kind (holgarama/faux pano/multi-exposures) in... Continue reading

I'm rather zonked at the moment, to write up an extensive report on the wonderful time I had with my sister, Mary, and how fun the road trip up to Philly with her was. So, instead I'll offer a selection of photos I made at Longwood Gardens on Easter Sunday... Continue reading

Embellished fabric cyanotype #2 now complete. I'm pleased with the results. I didn't have a solid idea in my head at the outset for this (nor for the first one I made). It felt appropriate to work with the form and let the ideas come during the process. Sounds like... Continue reading

I suppose if I were to title pieces, that would be fitting. I worked on another 12 x 24 photo encaustic today. The prints were made on my new printer, on presentation paper, the image being split approximately in half. Silly me, I thought piecing together two sections would be... Continue reading

I hadn't realized it's been nearly a week since I've posted here. Time marches on and all that, I guess! Spring is playing coy...warmish one day but then cool again, warm again, cool again, punctuated by some rain and thunderstorms. I suppose that's normal. While I'm glad the temperatures aren't...

Just checking in with a couple photos of a new photo encaustic I made today. This is the first time I used a single solid, 12 x 24 inch print to make the piece. The paper doesn't seem as porous (having come from the printer on single weight, matte photo... Continue reading
