One of my favorite topics is nature. I have never seen or felt anything so awesome and powerful as what can be seen and felt through nature to the deepest depths of your soul. The sounds, the colors, the intense sensations of the five senses, all manipulated and guided through nature. I'm in awe when I see something like this through the camera lens. How fabulous it is to have the technology to capture such visions of inspiration and adoration.

Now that I've obtained employment, I can finally delve back into my art without that guilt feeling, the one that says, "you shouldn't be doing art, you don't even have money coming in." Our friends, Kathy and Stacy, just celebrated their 25 th anniversary. I was fortunate enough to attend their celebrato ry bash last night, and fun was certainly had by all. One of the bathrooms in their home, which happens to be one I helped them work on years ago, is themed in vintage nudes. To add to that collection, I made for them a card/wall hanging. The middle area with the writing and picture was flooded with self-leveling gel and set to dry. Some of the objects stick out and some are totally immersed. It was really a lot of fun to make. On another note, I promised in my last post that I would post a picture or two of the frames I made at Andy's house. This is a wooden frame, patterned in a bamboo look. I thought it turned out really great. I hate to take


As I sifted thr ough the boxes of photographs in my closet this morning, I came across this rare picture of my mother's mother, Ollie May Brooks aka best gramma in the world. Rare in that finding pictures of her at any age earlier than 60 is very difficult. The caption on the back of this one read, "holding cousin Ronny." I never imagined my grandmother this young, partly because she had an old soul. This picture reminds me that she at least tried to be young once, but was probably never this age emotionally . I so love the hair styles back then. It was all about length and curls and braids and parts. This is my mother, Sandra, and her brother, David at a skating rink. I REALLY miss skating rinks. David was 2 years younger than my mother. He died 2 years ago of cancer. My mother is currently fighting cancer, but I can look at these pictures and realize that they have had a good life up until this point and I have been very lucky to have had all of these people
