I discovered a new technique which I am quite fond of and having a great time creating new digital art. This is my other way to see nature, flowers and other abstracts I have in my collection in a new light. I think this is fun and whimsical and adds a contemporary touch.



I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!
There will be more Orbs to come.

Well I guess it has been a little while since my last posting.  Sorry about that.  It has been kinda busy.
The main reason is the photographs above and below.  Meet Riley, he is an Irish Wolfhound/Retriever mix.  He is the size of a retriever, but all of his other features are Irish Wolfhound.  We got him from our local Humane Society.  He is just over a year old and let me tell you he is full of energy.  The past month we have been trying to train him, but with little success.  So we decided to get a trainer to help us out.  We went for his evaluation today and as I had always known he has a ton of potential, but needs lots of work. We got some great tips and of course homework to work on.  For the next 4 weeks we will be attending private lessons with him and he won't be the only one being trained correctly.  I think it will be a training process for us too.

Apparently Riley hadn't been trained properly in his previous home and also might have been crated.  There was evidence of that on his canine teeth which were curved on the backside of them from gnawing at the crate.  He alsl has some anxiety issues, which are getting better. 
I have to say the first week after we got him, I was ready to take him back, but I knew that wasn't an option.  I was determined to work with Riley and help him become a great dog that I know he is.  After about a month now even though we are seeking a trainer, we are seeing small steps of improvement.  Riley just needs owners who are patience, who are persistence and will persevere.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.

Back in August I spent the afternoon at the Windsor State Fair here in Maine. I had great fun photographing all the rides and amusements, and of course some great fair food too!
These photographs would look great in any nursery or children room. Their light bright and colorful. Especially Duffy the Dragon!

Brand New!

Brand New! 
I now have Photo Pendants on Etsy.
Finally after mastering some techinques and alot of trial and error my new Photo Pendants are available for sale in my Etsy shop.
I am very excited and pleased with how they turned out.
These are miniature photographs I took that are under a clear glass dome and set in a 20mmx30mm vintage style gold pendant.  A 24 inch chain is included.

Soon I will be adding vintage silver photo pendants for those of us who like silver.  These will be in a square shape accented with a bead trim.  Watch for them I expect in about 2 weeks.

Where Have I Been!

Well I guess it has been some time since my last post.  Sorry about that.  I will put all the blame on school.  I started school about a month ago and boy let me tell you.  What a challenge.  I started off okay and trying to get the hang of things.  Just when I thought it was good, well I had a art show to do and that threw me off course.  So I had to catch up.  Now that I am almost caught up.   I can start getting back to my photography.  I have so much editing and so many photos to add to Etsy and Fine Art America. 


For the past several weeks I have been working on a new item to add to my product line which you will see only on Etsy.  I'm hoping to launch this new item October 8th.  If all goes as I plan, which as we all know not everything goes according to plan.  I will be announcing on Facebook and Twitter about my new item.  I will be also sending out emails regarding my new item.  So if your not already you can follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook fan page and sign up for my newsletter (which you will find at the top right).  I am also in the process of stocking my shop on Etsy for a first time event cash mob for all Etsy Maineteam shops.  Details to follow.
The show which was in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire was great!  The weather was perfect, the crowds were good and so were the sales.  I will be definitely doing this show next year.
I expect this is going to be a busy and exciting October! 
Keep in touch there will be alot to watch for!
See you next time!

It's September


I photographed this Flamingo at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.
So here we are the end of Summer and the unofficial beginning of Fall.  Frankly I'm glad summer is over.  It has been an sad summer losing 2 wonderful dogs first Ben in June and then Sami in August.  I've been busy with shows and registering for college and it was also far to hot for me.  I'm looking forward to the cooler months ahead and less sadness and more happy times. 
My last show of the season is September 15th & 16th in Hampton Falls, NH with the Castleberry Fairs and Festivals.  This year the shows were up and down.  Some were good and some not so good.  I've pretty much decided that with the exception of maybe 3 shows I will be staying in state (Maine) for all my other shows.  Just because it will be cost effective and until the economy finally starts to come around shows will be closer to home.
So now with shows nearly over I will be redirecting my attention to photo editing and getting new photos added to my websites for the holidays.  Having been photographing all year and not having much time to edit this is the time of year I start editing and getting new photos out. 
I've also been working on a new product line involving my photography.  As soon as I get all the kinks out I will fill you in on all the details.  My goal is to have the new line out in October. 
Stay tuned........
I will also be heading to college this year which starts on the 4th of this month and wouldn't you know I start my first day with my favorite (not) algebra.  I expect I will be quite busy with school, but I hope that I can time manage myself to get my school work done, photo editing, prepping for the holiday and what ever else comes my way.  We'll see.
