The Stool

•August 27, 2014 • 4 Comments

during this set

at my fall artist residency

i tried to balance myself on this stool.

at one point i decided


perhaps this is not such a safe prop.


i am back from a gifted vacation.

FILLED with gratitude

the trip was so remarkably relaxing.

reality not so much.

by the by thanks for being here while I was away.

The OTHER Green Chair

•August 14, 2014 • 2 Comments

wow. lowest stat days ever.  

even in my humble beginnings i had more folks here.

not very encouraging.

either folks don’t enjoy the story about mr cowboy.


or like me, have had a rather busy summer.

as a matter of fact its vacation time for me.

i hope it’s just busy

i also hope when i get back that you are still here.

I just completed my recap of my 4 artist residencies

“All told my final portfolio’s for my four residencies totaled over 6500 images. I can imagine that I took at least 10,000 – if not more, I abbreviated the experience on my FB page to a mere 1600. This of course would be my most comprehensive collection of images I’ve ever taken within one theme. I find myself a little emotionally attached at the moment. I am not sure if that happens to other artists/photographers. I don’t quite know how to really evaluate what it is I’ve done.”

Below are images from my first residency.

check out the OTHER green chair.

( it had this rocking thing to it )

actually there was an exact duplicate of MY green chair there.

perhaps I mentioned that before.

i so wanted to load it up top my car and call it mine.

gotta love the sock lines around my ankles.

and so…

after just meeting mr cowboy,

i left on a creative adventure.

in my heart i was feeling this

strange and unusual thing.

someone caring for me.

someone greatly desiring me

and someone really really missing me.

and then.

i was away at my awarded artist residency.

awarded = proud.

artist = wanna be.

want to be an artist with all of me.

a friend once said

you ARE an artist!

love that,

let’s clarify.

earn my living as an artist.


my greatest desire.

i then had this

TEN day immersion

into MY space and artistic expression.

like i was an actual artist!!

a very surreal

and a very intense experience.

while there

i did one set of nude images.

The Cave

•August 7, 2014 • 2 Comments

and so

i find myself at his place.

i have nicknamed it the cave.

not much light.

here in his bedroom

there are no windows.

i remember this day like it was just yesterday

i was showing him how i take imagery of himself.

love how he included himself.

i got all caught up in the

sweetheart sign

which he had never noticed before.

the street lamp fascinates me

one pole

two lights.

i see it as holding hands.

i might see too much in things

but i don’t care

it’s my story and i’m sticking to it.

his home is simple

clean and neat.

he cooks.

on the weekends  i am there


he takes care of it all.

it’s very easy to indulge in escapism.

i feel like a queen.

top image?

a favorite.

i mean how crazy

that the composition is

The Dance Of

•August 4, 2014 • 4 Comments

and so…

we started the dance of physical and emotional chemistry.

a beginning.


definitely a dance.

full throttle physicality.

plus all the risk one can muster emotionally.

date 3.

i absolutely could not wait to see him.

I could not wait for him to kiss me again.

i marveled how he got me to a place of breathless.

i wore

a country girl dress.

he is mr cowboy after all.

the dress stayed on for maybe 5 minutes.



i also got to meet his dog.

she had only been w/ him a few months

that didn’t go over to well.

Check out the roses!!!
