fun opportunity!

 last week i received a fun opportunity to work with one of our top producing agents in our real estate office. she had a new 3 million dollar listing and asked me to take photos of it. wow...what an opportunity!! i was very excited and nervous at the same time, as i have never done this before and had never even taken indoor photos with my new camera! i learned so much in that one hour i took those photos and am pretty happy with the results! now i can hardly wait to see the brochure!

i am falling
 like a stone,
 like a storm
 being born again
 into the sweet morning fog.

~the morning fog by kate bush~

these photos were taken last saturday morning on my hike in the san gabriel mountains...cloudy, foggy and really cold!! the explosion of yellow wildflowers at the base of the mountain was pretty darn impressive!

this past weekend i was at an incredible/life altering lazaris workshop, so jos and i didn't get out at all into nature. by the time i got home on sunday evening i was a good way, but i  had no energy to do an early evening hike. although the clouds were so beautiful it would have been super nice to catch the sunset!!

I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it... I always want to see the third dimension of something... I want to come alive with the object.
 just have the foreground to finish now and some touch up work left to do in the leaves.  I have a show coming up June 4th & 5th so my obsession with drawing is now on the back i have LOTS of framing to do!! but i am really looking forward to the art fair, it's always fun to get out and meet people and chit chat about art!!!

Staring into the beauty we can see, 
 we see the reflection of our own deep beauty, 
 our own perfect Self, 
 our own pure Silence, 
 like a snowy field in the highest mountains 
 that cannot be seen with human eyes alone.

Robert Rabbin

i highly recommend reading the full can read it here

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.  ~Albert Einstein

abandoned LA zoo revisited

 my youngest daughter and i finally got the opportunity to go back to the old abandoned LA zoo on saturday. it was a beautiful warm sunny day, we meandering through the old cages, graffiti filled tunnels, and hiked the trails around it, taking lots of photos along the way!
unfortunately when we got back to my car the window had been smashed in and my purse stolen, as well as the car next to me. the rangers told us there was a gang in the area watching cars and stealing, in seconds valuables they saw people hiding under their seats. so there went the rest of our nicely planned day of photo shooting as it took hours to take care of everything. luckily i took my drivers license and credit cards with me and i had no cash in my wallet so they got very little from me...but i learned a very valuable lesson...never take my purse if i'm not going to carry it!!
