Photography for Sale!

Hello — long time no… post! As the result of a series of circumstances, I took a short posting hiatus… I went on a small vacation with family, I fell ill with the most horrible end-of-winter sickness, and — you know — some times you just have to hibernate to rejuvenate. I haven’t been creativity-free,…

Mary.

Above is a representation of my friend Mary from college. I worked from a portrait I took of her for an assignment for photography class a year or so ago. She was one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Mary is a bubbly girl who grew up in Kenya, who often wore traditional African dress.…

Seed of Insight.

This image just kind of happened. I wanted to work on facial contour and simple shading… But then I planted a sunflower in her head: how one seed of an idea can grow into something beautiful.

A Bit of Drawing.

I have been creating in small amounts lately. I picked up my pencils for the first time in a long time when I drew myself earlier this month. After resigning these instruments to a long hibernation, I wasn’t quite sure how I would handle them again. I never really liked drawing in the first place,…

Drawing Self.

Only one time before have I attempted to draw my own portrait. I think I was about 12 years old and going through the usual pre-teen vanity-dilemmas, so after a ten minute quick sketch with heavy graphite I frustratingly gave up. I attempted the feat once again this afternoon by referencing a photograph from mid-2011,…

It Was a Windy Day Over Lake Champlain…

… That’s how each day usually begins around here. I’ve only been taking photographs sporadically since I have moved up to Vermont. Unfortunately, I haven’t worked with them — let alone look at them — since their capture. It is funny to consider the moments I may have tucked away. The above photograph was taken…

Energy.

My biggest hurdle is starting a project when I can’t foresee the end result. I can knit a scarf, but my pattern told me how it was supposed to look at the end. I can draw the scene I see in front of me, but I have that scene for reference of how it should…

What is Art?

I have discovered that I don’t really know how to create. …That may seem a bit sudden and skittish, considering I developed this blog just a few days ago to trace my path towards creation and haven’t actually done anything yet. Let me assure you, all is right in my path! Personal reflection is the…

New Page: Mission

I have published my mission! …and created a page about it. After this, I swear I’ll start blogging about something a little more pertinent to the purpose, rather than updates on my blog status… but, then again, isn’t the process of creating this blog the first step within my mission? Content published on my new…

New Page: Ideology

The process of developing this blog is a challenging one for a techno-illiterate! So, as an update and for post-sake… Content published on my new page Ideology: Every individual possess an ability to create. We all have a unique inspiration, a unique approach, a unique process and a unique result. This overall development is our own: we all create…
