“Lucid dreaming has considerable potential for promoting personal growth and self-development, enhancing self-confidence, improving mental and physical health, facilitating creative problem solving and helping you to progress on the path to self-mastery.” – Stephen LaBerge
The image above is of my niece, Taylor! I adore her and she is absolutely, hands down, my most favorite model to work with! The image above was taken last summer when she came for a visit. I am writing about her today to introduce you to her new blog…TayloredToYou. Be sure and stop by and give her a hardy WordPress welcome! If you enjoy fashion advice and adventure, I suggest you follow her blog too! You won’t be disappointed, unless of course, there is a time-lapse between her posts!
It is with excitement that I write my post this evening. Doylestown, in the heart of Bucks County Pennsylvania is an extraordinary community with a heavy focus on the arts. Many artists; painters, authors, photographers, musicians, sculptors, potters, and others, have lived, or presently live in or around Doylestown. Several artists lead by Stephanie Lisle, owner of the Bucks County Project Gallery, recently joined forces with the local business alliance and created the event “Doylestown Art Days”. From June 5th to 8th over 60 merchants are opening their doors and giving local artists the opportunity to display their work in a unique environment. I feel very blessed to say that I was paired with “Shop Sixty Five“. “Shop Sixty Five” is a unique and fabulous boutique in Doylestown. To describe it as the height of fashion is an understatement. The staff is always eager to serve customers and help them find exactly what they are looking for and what makes them feel and look great.
I am thrilled to be displaying 6 to 8 of my fine art pieces in “Shop Sixty Five” this week and even more delighted that I had the pleasure to photograph the beautiful ladies that work in the store. They were so fun to work with, so photogenic, and so very gracious to let me spend hours in their store photographing. You probably won’t hear from me the rest of the week as I am busy framing and matting the portraits (17 of them) to be displayed in addition to my fine art pieces. Wish me luck and let me know what you think of the sample of images below! I always love to hear from you!
In some respects, shoes and purses define the female gender. Do we as women not love the look and feel of a new handbag – the organization, the feel and smell of new leather, the fashion statement? All of it! And shoes! Oh my word. We have to have them. After all, “no shirts, no SHOES, no service”!
Don’t ask me how or why, but the other night when I was winding down from another crazy day, this poem popped into my head. Why something more important and life changing couldn’t have come to me I’m not sure….but here it is. Not exactly a literary wonder, but fun all the same.
Some old, some new,
Some worn, some blue.
No, not blue, but pink, red, brown,
and is that a shoe too?
I had to act on this crazy mental nudge and photographed a mess of handbags that happen to belong to yours truly. Those of you who knew me in former days know that this mess would never have been found in my closet prior to child #3!
