I apologize for the short notice. 2010 has gotten off to a stressful start, leaving me little time for my art. I wanted to do something special for Valentine's Day. A former classmate of mine has a fantastic blog and she's offering a chance to win one of two of my 8x10 "Love on the Line" prints. The contest ends at midnight Central time...TONIGHT! So please, get on over there and enter! There aren't many entries right now, so your chances are really good. :o) Good luck!

Holiday Sale and new Christmas collection

We've rolled out a new nostaligic Christmas collection in our photo store this week and are introducing them with a special 30% off sale. We also put all non-Christmas prints 50% off. We welcome you to come explore our store.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, I know I've been away from my blog for months, but that's all about to change. I spent a few months working on two torso series and then was sick for 6 weeks, but now I'm back to Etsy full time. I wanted to wish all my friends and followers in the U.S. a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Facing (one) of my fears

Last week I took a zillion pictures. I've always been one to run around and shriek when a bee came near me, but last week I was intrigued by them and stood surrounded by stinging creatures and hid behind my camera...snapping away. The new prints just arrived and I'm slowly adding them to my mistflowerphoto store on Etsy. While I'm terrifed of spiders too, I don't plan on standing around photographing them anytime soon. LOL

Despite being sick with some horrendous bug, I've started putting the base coat on some of the torsos today. I was so sick of looking at stark white for the last couple of weeks that I had to go bold and bright. I needed a color fix! :o) Stay tuned for more updates and the final reveal at the end of the month.

A sad week in the entertainment world

Above is one of my newest photographs, "Sorrow". I haven't had it printed yet, but it seemed fitting.

What a week of loss! Ed McMahon entertained us for years as Johnny Carson's sidekick, as the host of Star Struck and with appearances on so many other shows. How many of us hoped Mr. McMahon would knock on our door with a giant check from Publisher's Clearinghouse?

Like many little girls, I was in awe of Charlie's Angels. In 6th grade I had my hair cut like Farrah's, only to discover my mom didn't know how to use a curling iron and refused to buy one, so my hair looked like an A-frame house. It was awful! Farrah dazzled us with her beautiful smile and gentle grace for many years, but certainly not enough.

I've never been a fan of music, but Michael Jackson was a part of my childhood. In high school his music seemed to be everywhere. This often misunderstood man was on the verge of what could have been an amazing comeback and now we'll never know. Instead we'll have to endure weeks, months and possibly years of conspiracy theories, custody battles, lawsuits and questions.

To all three, thank you for sharing your talent with the world. May you rest in peace.

New series underway!

I have to have two new series of torsos done in the coming months. The first set is due at the beginning of August for a show that features the male and female form. My mother-in-law is flying in for the opening! We haven't seen her in over three years and I'm honored that she accepted my invitation to come in for "the big show". She'll be staying with us for 17 days. The second set of torsos are due at the end of September and they'll all be of the female form. The show benefits breast cancer research and some of my former classmates from high school have volunteered to be models. The torsos take an incredibly long time to complete and I've never worked on more than one at once, so this is quite a challenge, especially with my right arm not able to do very much. I bought some incredibly luscious embellishments for the torsos and I'm so anxious to see them hung at the gallery. I'm trying to capture all ages and sizes. I'll be sure to get lots of pictures!
