I can’t begin to tell you how fortunate we are to have Diana photographing Elliot!  He was just 7 days old when these photos were taken and not the most cooperative of subjects.  Somehow Diana managed to capture his little parts, photos we will treasure for a lifetime.  Hard to believe he’s pushing 3 months old now!

Elliot’s First Portrait

October 23, 2013

Just a quick gesture sketch of the sleeping babe…of course he had to move before I could finish his little fingers or tidy up his features.  Elliot's first portrait

The first of many I suspect.

Meet the New Boss

September 4, 2013

Elliot James took over FLYoung Studio on August 4th, 2013.  Weighing in at just 7lbs 14 ounces, and “standing” a mere 20.5 inches tall, he has effectively taken charge of day-to-day production.  Things have slowed a bit during this transitional time (on behalf of the new boss-man, we apologize)  Frankly, he makes a habit of  sleeping on the job and taking multiple lunch breaks throughout the day, while making us work the graveyard shift.

The Boss Man

All that aside, we think he’s pretty cute and inspiring, so we’ll let him keep his post for now.  Oh and in case you missed it, he was awake long enough to commission a photo session with Diana Daley.

 

On June 3, 2012, our sweet Lee Anne went to heaven under the light of the full moon.  She was 46 years old, a life cut way too short by Huntington’s Disease.  In the 17 days since her passing,  I can’t help but think of all the people that currently have Huntington’s, their families, and the road that lies ahead of them.  I know in my heart that one day there will be a cure for this terrible disease.  As you may recall, I painted a portrait of Lee Anne, “Riding the Storm Out.”  The original hangs on my studio wall, but I have archival quality, hand-signed prints  available for those who want a unique piece of art and want to help find a cure.  $20 from the sale of each print goes to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.

Lee Anne’s “no fear” attitude and fighting spirit will live on forever in our hearts.

My next two custom pen & inks have me giddy!  One, late eighteenth century, the other I’m not quite sure of, but equally as grand.

A photo of me  (circa 2003) taken by  long lost friend, and talented photographer, Cecilia Marshall.

Ceci, if you’re reading this, I’d love to reconnect…oh and do share your method, as I’ve completely forgotten how this print was processed.  It’s been applied to a heavy-weight print-making paper, and as I recall, the variations (like “antler” neck) were all happy accidents.

Gone Shrimpin’

September 24, 2010

Granny and I finally found some time to put the boat in the water.  Rather than venture out to our favorite haunt, Granny taught me to cast for shrimp.  (my kinda fishin’)

A few things about Saundra Kay…

Granny Saundra Kay Throwing Cast Net for Shrimp

Don’t let her 4’11” frame fool you, she could tackle Goliath.

She has, in fact, been known to wrestle alligators (to protect her grandkids and precious dogs of course)

Makes the best damn cherry pie you have EVER tasted.
