Source images for my Valentine’s Day series


For my latest series of Affectionate Animals, I wanted my paintings to feel classic and timeless. That’s why I used vintage photographs as the source images for the paintings! Aside from the scene from I Love Lucy, which turned into the Bear Hug portrait, each of these photogrphs is from relative unknown photographers, images I simply found off the internet. (more…)

On the Threshold of Fear

threshold fear

I never thought that I would be accepted as a vendor for Renegade Craft Fair in Seattle this winter. Renegade is huge. Their Instagram account alone has 139,000 followers. I had to put up my entire booth fee with my application, and all autumn I was making plans for what I would do with the money when they rejected me and I got my refund. (more…)

An Evening In The Yard

eveningtime under the apple tree

I thought: let’s stay out till it rains.
The forecast says 6 o’clock.
So we dined and we danced
and we played my guitar
…without a single drop.

The sun was tucked behind the clouds
and slowly it slipped off to rest.
So we entered dark rooms,
with the dusk in our lungs,
and we trundled along off to bed. (more…)

A Year In The Life

Today is Phoebe’s birthday. She is three years old.

In commemoration, I chose to feature one photo for each month of her life as a two-year-old. Of course, these photos don’t contain every nuance of her year (how could they??)…but I hope they represent a bit of her personality, her spirit and her growth.

Enjoy!

Owen Beach (April 2014)

owen beach pink

On the rocky shores of Owen Beach,
where the pebbles rattle in the waves,
where the surf is dark and foamy white,
she hugged my knees, afraid.

She asked to go; I asked to stay.
She sat awhile on my lap and found
five shells, a nugget of glass.
We gathered sticks, searched for wrens,

and, with a start,
she ran to the tide
to splash in the evening sound. (more…)

Amberly & Chris in Wright Park: Family Maternity Session PART TWO

I recently did my first photo session EVER with my dear friend, Amberly. She and her partner, Chris, are expecting a baby this August, and we snapped some photos of their blended family before the littlest member arrives. I posted my initial photos, all taken with my iPhone 4S, in a previous post. In addition to my iPhone, I also used my old school SLR camera to take black and white photographs. I just go the film back from processing yesterday. Here are my favorites from the roll…
