My first serious foray into Photoshop and Lightroom after years with Mac’s photo editing software. Take a peak at the first grouping if you so choose.
Quite pleased with where I am.Ā  šŸ™‚


From Camera to Canvas

Welcome to the newest art in my home!

Initially these five canvases were going to be a gift for my other half, but after seeing how they were coming out and knowing that any feasible holiday was still months away… I caved and surprised him. In no time, they were up in our living room. They fit in perfectly.

What you’re looking at are five small panel style canvases. Each canvas started as an original photo I took sometime in the last year. I wanted to make something very “us” and I definitely achieved that.

I love the aged, distressed look. The black, white and grey tones fit into the decor of our living room simply and easily.

From camera to canvas–from my home to yours!Ā If you like what you see, by all means let me know. I’d love to make you something similar.Ā I’ve been experimenting with transfers quite a bit lately and have a few more, larger, pieces in the works.

The Shakespeare Garden

There’s more to San Francisco than the Golden Gate Bridge.

This park, the Shakespeare Garden, is easily my favorite hidden gem of this slanted city.

If you’ve travelled a bit, you know that every city has a certain energy to it. This garden, however, was well hidden in the Golden Gate Park and it, absolutely, has an energy all its own.

I could almost seeĀ A Midsummer Night’s DreamĀ happening around me, Puck hiding among the foliage waiting for the passersby to fall asleep.

Slanting Cities

Spur of the moment travels.Ā These situations happen to me a lot.

This time the slanting city that found me happened to be a halfway point between a place I loved and one that’s growing on me. This city is the edge of a puddle I just jumped.

Welcome to San Francisco.

I hope you packed some walking shoes… or an adorable guide with a car
