Random moment playing with light and water, courtesy of one of my husband’s fish tanks.
As cold air permeates New England, I think back to last summer. Getting inspired, with the blues of sky and sea, as well as pastel shades of shell. The jagged lines of shadow from broken shells also gives me some ideas.
More to come…
Some of my photos are up at my dear friend Tamar’s gallery in Fitchburg, MA.
My friend and I visited when I dropped off the photos; we had fun peering at the wonderful paintings, and getting to know Meagan, who not only works there but has some of her art on display.
Wonderful paintings command your attention as soon as you walk in:
Paper Connection International, who supplied the Japanese paper, or washi, for my show, also has some other decorative sheets of handmade paper for sale. These hail from Japan, and include hand painted kozo, as well as katazome, or resist dyed sheets. Cute stationery from Japan is available too.
Tamar, the owner of Gallery Sitka, works very hard supporting the arts in the area. She’s in a great location, right near the Fitchburg Art Museum. She also runs a studio in Shirley, MA, where she guides clients with web design, social media, and other digital marketing.
Visit Gallery Sitka for some refreshing and inspiring experiences, meet some nice people, and support the arts in central MA.
And thanks, Tamar!
See you in Acton?
Now through the end of March 2018
I’m happy to announce my photographs are on display at the Wellness at Villageworks in West Acton, MA. There is something different about these photos; they are printed on Japanese paper, or washi. I used coated bamboo paper, suggested by Lauren Pearlman, from Paper Connection International, which ran through an Epson quite smoothly. Many thanks to Zen Saito, who helped print these photos. Of course I am always indebted to my incredible husband, who is always so unbelievably supportive.
Sharing Poet Hair II from my previous photo blog, Lowe Aperture:
this is a theme I’m interested in pursuing, as my hair has always been part of how people used to recognize me, (the girl with the really long hair!). Most of the time-actually all of the time-the attention was unwanted. It’s not as long now, and maybe a little tinted with henna, but I remind myself of that Korean proverb: a poet’s hair can cut rock. It’s a reminder as how to be. It inspires me in many ways. These are unposed, random strands of hair, after a wash, edited on an iPhone 6 plus.
I attempt IG here and there, decide for it, against it, and then ambiguously deactivate it. Smart for a photo blogger, right? The filters are fun, and I like playing with them. I like to keep things simple though, and too many platforms can make me question myself as to where I should be and why? So I have some random images I had saved from those IG days…I will share here and there via haiku camera.
Maybe this photo sums it all up:
