With Just One Glance

"For a clever eye, one glance is [just] enough"

Mark Rothko (the artist I chose to use for my blog banner) has always been one of my favorite artists. It has been said that his paintings move people to tears. I can testify. I have only had the chance to stand in front of a few of his works at the Milwaukee Art Museum […]

Sally

It was a while ago now, since I met Sally. The boys were hired to move her and her stuff out and into a pod. She could only take what would fit in the 9 x 6 x 18 ft container. Sally filled that times 100 in her house, floor to ceiling, with buried treasures. She loved things. These things each had a story; Each newspaper, each ring, each paper clip and shoe could write books or plays or movies.

Sally; she dreamed, she loved and she always forgave.

Red Stripe

Not the beer, though good…

I captured these guys on a trip to South Africa that I took with my mom a year ago in April. I have always love zebras and their stripes. Are they black with white stripes or white with black stripes? What if they were white with red stripes. This idea was struck by my boyfriends mother who just purchased some new, awesome, red leather couches for her home. Tammy asked me if it would be possible to changed the stripes on my zebra’s to match her red living room.

I told her it could be done though I had not yet the knowledge of how. You can do anything with photo shop, right? As far as I know, its true, except, for using it making me a sandwich when I am hungry.

After some research into how to create such an image and some of my own tinkering with what I already know about photo shop I was able to change a zebra’s stripes.

Feel free to inquire about the process or send any critique on how to create an even more realistic zebra with red stripes. But more importantly I hope you enjoy what you see.

I left in a whirl-wind. It was fight or flight and I was done fighting with my lonesome demons. The drive home was terrible. Not mentally, but physically. I tried to complete the drive as quickly as possible driving 20 hours in two days at one point only allowing myself 4 hours of sleep in […]

This morning I woke up to an empty apartment a heavy heart and a clear head. I had planned to spend the day seeing the city on my own but the thought of experiencing something new, something excitable, something that was meant to be shared without some one to share it with, that thought lay […]
