Simply put, we need more of this in the world. Watch me create my new piece in the series.
So back in July, I thought I would experiment and try something out of my comfort zone. My father wasn't in the best of health and needed I and outlet. It all started with some doubles of prints that I had, so I thought... why the hell not?! I started painting over those and ended up with painting some canvases. I have a ton of abstract photography but there were always colors and shapes I couldn't get with my camera, so I turned to a brush and freed my mind. My Father is doing much better now and my paint brush hasn't stopped, so stay tuned. xo
OMGEEEEE I forgot to mention- I always donate a portion of my art sales to charitable organizations. So it's a win win. BUY ART. DO GOOD. GIVE BACK!! Instead of buying a T.V. or a pair of shoes that you don't need for the holiday, how about supporting an artist that gives back?
You can now find this series at Lilian August in their store in Norwalk, Connecticut. xo
Message me if you see something you like I can ship or hand deliver.
I have been really lucky in my career to meet some amazing people, and a few of my clients started out as friends who appreciated my work and have been following me throughout the years... do you see the trend? And when your friends want to hire you...that just makes me happy! That being said I love the people that I come in contact with in my life.
Here is the story behind how I got to know Kubiak.
Kubi (as we like to call him) has been friends with my husband for years, they played on the same soccer league. He ended up coming to one of my exhibits a couple years back and purchased a piece from me. Don't you already love him!?
Fast forward a couple years and I received an email from him that he would be proposing to his girlfriend and wanted me there to capture it. We devised a plan of a "farewell to D.C. photoshoot" since he would be taking a job in Taiwan and D'Arcy would be going with him. It was the height of Cherry blossom season in D.C. and we met at the monuments with our plan in action at Sunrise. FYI nobody has ever convinced me to get up that early unless it was to fly off to an exotic location. Clearly he's pretty special in my book, and possibly one of the kindest people you would ever meet.
And the story continues...I was so excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding in Ludington, Michigan this September. They included myself and my husband in everything from the family get togethers and the rehearsal dinner. I got to know their fantastic family and friends and made a few new friends myself. Check out their wedding video and you too will see that their love is contagious. Love and good energy flow from these two. I wish the both of you a lifetime of happiness & adventures. xo
