Standing Strong

Standing strong > standing tall. In this blog, I am going to explain why this portrait was made.  Much of what I say here could be applied to my other self-portraits as well, because many are built from the same place within me.

Night Moves in Blue

It had been too long since I had taken my self-portraiture medicine.  I was starting to get twitchy-twitchy (yes, doubly twitchy).  I have been unable make space during the daylight hours to accomplish self-portraits as of late- a temporary issue, but one I needed to work around.  In order to make this series of photographs, I had to break from my reliance on the sunshine.  I drew from a completely different light source, a “no signal” blue light from a […]

Birdie Lou

This weekend we are celebrating three weeks of life and love with our new family member Birdie Lou Ellen “Snakebite.” This first set of photos below were taken at the Royaile breeder’s house in Tucson, Arizona, the day we brought her home. We had visited previously when the puppies were only about 5 weeks old. During that visit we met their mother, Twitter, and grandmother, Pumpkin. We also met many other adult and adolescent Welshie’s.   The breeders show many […]

What if I stopped?

  What if I stopped? I think about it. Sometimes. What I am… What I see… Might not matter. I’ll lose A game I’m not playing. But I’m pushed By me. By what I am. By what I see. It matters to me… All that is free Is winning.
