Art and Photos

“I started making art and taking photos long before I became an author, so it seemed only natural to me that I incorporate those into my blog, later I added some photos with quotes to add interest to the articles.

Now there’s growing galleries of all kinds of artwork and photos!”

My Artwork!

Touch this Sunflower watermarked

Over the course of many years I’ve created many types of art… from hyper-realistic paintings to abstract (and many styles in between those extremes), fearlessly using whichever style I felt best suited the feel of the piece I was inspired to create!

I followed my joy and always felt free to express myself in many different styles and mediums, never worrying that I needed to choose only one to conform to other people’s stereotypes!

The freedom I permitted myself allowed me to explore new ideas and mediums, never feeling that I wasn’t “supposed to” branch out from a set box many will find themselves in! I gave myself permission to allow myself complete freedom to explore, to learn and to follow my inner joy, which seemed to threaten many people since they couldn’t seem to easily define me.

I received quite a bit of negative feedback from a number of people in my past, but I believe that by not giving in to their ideas to confine me and quietly following my own vision for my life, I ended up developing my own inner strength… even if I didn’t realize it right away!

Some of My Quirky Photos…

Well, I’ve been taking quirky photos for years!

All kind of things which captured my attention, be it the way the light was hitting something, the shadow, the mystery, the beauty, the ugly, the pattern… well you get the idea…

I’ve also gotten a lot of strange looks from people who couldn’t figure out WHY I would want to photograph such an odd thing. I liked it that’s why!

I gave myself permission to do this strange thing, and I started adding quotes from the Lemonade book to some of my quirky photos and using those to embellish various blog articles… and then I found out that some of my readers were printing out the images, putting them up around their homes and using them to find encouragement… which prompted me to make them available on Fine Art America so everyone can have really awesome finished products!

These quotes have now been watermarked, since I’ve learned that piracy can be an issue, but I’m providing the direct link to their location on Fine Art America, so if you love them you can purchase a museum quality print or canvas. I’ve got some of my paintings and other photos on Fine Art America and I’m adding to that collection regularly so you can order them for your home, or to give as gifts!

If any resonate with you, please let me know which one(s), and even why!
