Sweet summertime…

A Mothers love…

Recently while taking flower photos at the park, a sweet little family walked along the path and into my frame. I didn’t mind at all. What a difference it made in my photo. Afterwards I asked if I could email her a copy and she was happy to say yes. This kind of interaction makes taking photos so beautiful. I remember my own children at that age and teaching them about nature. Such sweet memories!

Thank you MB.  💗

My first Wall Mural…

This past week I painted my first “Wall Mural” for a new Salt Spa here in Hendersonville. There was much more to it than I thought and I sure learned a lot!~ Mostly how much I don’t know! ~ That’s okay though…I love learning. I tried to stay true to the photo choice and colors that my client wanted. The wall space was 7-1/2′ x 12′. My husband was such a help to me lugging in all the supplies I needed and even brought me food (and chocolate!) and encouraged me the whole way! He truly is the hero in this story. It took a total of 3 days (not counting the night before setting up/graphing and sketching it out). All in all I believe the clients are pleased and when the door is opened to show the room, people sense they are in a special place. That really is my reward. 🙂

“Happy” – Vietnam Veteran 

“Happy” (Earl Gray) shakes the hand of a grateful passerby in downtown Asheville. He was the unofficial “keeper of the wall” ~ (the famous ‘Before I Die’ giant chalkboard), where people would write what they wanted to do before they pass. “Happy” passed away this past month. RIP -You will be missed.
