Enjoying time outdoors photographing new work and enjoying the California landscape. Growing green plants and flowers in the spring is something I truly enjoy capture with my camera.
For a long time I had this vision to have magnetic walls in my studio where I could just easily hang up new prints or use as a vision board. Didn’t know if I wanted to commit to a real wall with metal sheets though and suddenly I realized that my shelf unit – that really was ugly – would be a perfect place to build walls on.
Here are a few images from that project where I’m sanding, glueing metal sheets on to sliding walls and at last spray paint on to the final surface.
Yay! I’m so excited over this and building it myself was fun!
A big Thank You to all of you who came out to visit us at the Shipyard this weekend!
We all had a fabulous time and it felt great to be able to share my work with the public again. I so appreciate your feedback and support.
Here are some photos of my studio before I opened up Saturday.
I’m super excited to see these photographs being printed and framed! Some of them you will find framed at my open studio (October 23 & 24, 2021) this year, others you can order at my online store later in December.
Last fall I decided to go on a road trip and follow the coast line south California. I camped along the road at campsites that were still open… (remember, we where in this awful shutdown due to Covid-19. Hopefully, we are now on our way out of this epidemic).
It was a truly amazing journey, and exactly what I needed!
I visited national parks, sat at the beach and hiked mountains. I had a longing to be fully immersed in nature, to reconnect with myself, away from the city. I felt my creative juices started moving and began photographing landscapes that past by as scenery; a new portfolio of work has been born.
Below are 3 photographs that I shot during the trip and edited on the spot. They were all photographed in the mountains of Cerro Alto, California, where it is quiet at night and incredibly beautiful.
Summer solstice; a wonderful time to be outdoors and enjoy summer with friends. Most covid-19 restrictions are lifted. I’m vaccinated and feeling safer to visit family or host a dinner, just that is worth celebrating!
Long bright evenings and warm nights with an early rising morning sun after a few hours sleep.. there are so many things to enjoy in life.
I love all the flowers and plants that paints our landscape green and beautiful. It’s time to celebrate all gifts given to us.
Happy Midsummer everyone!
My 2 photographs were just accepted into the juried exhibition ‘Water’ at the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Iowa.
Wow! So much fun 🙂
This is a group show based on artists from Nordic 5 Arts.
