Hello! I hope everyone’s week is going well.
Above these images, I should have placed a warning to women of child-bearing years that this blog post will make your ovaries all twitchy. Sorry. These images were taken awhile back of some super duper adorable kids. I’m blogging through some older work. You’ll be seeing more from Ashley & Kevin’s engagement session soon.
This week I’ve been busy setting up my new Etsy storefront.Thanks again to The Future Mrs. Darcy for creating the Etsy banner and my new less obtrusive watermark. The moment I think I’ve finished I remember another image and I spend 10 minutes scouring through Bridge to locate the file. Wedding and portrait work are neatly organized chronologically. My personal and fine art work is filed by an illiterate helper monkey whom I pay in jellybeans. He’s not very fastidious, but he is cute in his little hat. In Nick Hornby’s, High Fidelity, the protagonist organizes his music collection uniquely. It’s not alphabetized or chronological, it’s autobiographical. It’s creatively narrative. It’s so self-indulged. I can relate. More so than I care to admit.
Please check out the new storefront. I’m pretty proud of it. Showing fine art makes one a bit vulnerable. It makes me a bit neurotic. Pulling one’s work together, editing and self-curating is how one grows as an artist. My sincerest thanks to those close friends who offered their critique and support. You are a lucky person if you have people in your life who will tell when something isn’t good enough, because you know you can trust the compliment that is paid.
