Our Darling

 
I am extremely lucky to have good friends around me, who always have insightful tips for me. Like this one from a fantastic graphic designer I know. A while back, he said to me: "Your work is great, but you really need to improve your photography." I took his work to heart and bought a new camera. Got some clip lights and created some white drapes. The result...I have to say, I am very happy with....

This is a new, soon to be listed on ETSY piece, called Our Darling. Part of my latest Soul House series that uses old bird houses as foundations for mixed media assemblages.This one is has a little different feel than some of the others. But I love the way the inside came to life with just a little light shining in from the side.

And finally.... A hearty congratulations are in order for.....Laurel Martin. The winner of my giveaway, who's name was chosen at random by my son Henry! If you didn't win, don't worry, there will be other giveaway in the next few months. You'll just have to stay tuned... there's a lot more fun in store for 2011!

This is a beautiful piece Lorraine and yes the photos are great. It's just practice with the camera. Play with setting up your shot, with backgrounds and props. It took me a while to get the look I wanted for my shop pieces, but it's getting there.
