Ahhhh…the wonders of the internet!  I posted a photo from inside the Chicago Art Insitute to my flickr page, and what do you know!…It’s been featured in the Schmap Chicago Sixth Edition!  It’s an online guide, with tourist information, maps, etc. of various areas.  Check out my little photo credit here. Oh and if you ever get around to visiting the great city of Chicago, don’t miss out on the Art Institute!

finally a Friday…

November 21, 2008

where things seem to come together!  I’m excited about this in part, because my brain never really “turns off of art.”  Especially considering I have a studio at home.  I pretty much eat, sleep, and breath it.  Once in a blue moon, all the loose ends come together on a Friday, such as today, and I feel as though I have had a “normal” work week.  One followed by a weekend of enjoyment rather than brow-beating work.  So cheers to Friday!  Hope you all have a lovely weekend…and don’t be surprised if I choose not to blog or answer my phone this weekend, I may just savor the break.

Oh and on another totally un-art related note…check out this stick bug I found the other day…turns out they make great pets.  Although, I’m not fond of that idea.

my frog’s back…

September 1, 2008

Every year, we have two tree frogs that take up shelter right around our front door.  Periodically they hop inside, and we have to fend off the Vayda-monster to get them back out.  Our little friend returned a few days ago, and I just happened to have my camera handy…

It’s times like these, I wish I had a few photography skills…but I’m pretty pleased with the composition here.  (Robin if you ever wanna learn how to wield a brush, I’ll gladly throw a few tips your way for some photo lessons…lol!)

Oh and belated “Happy Birthdays” are in order for Dad and Cima.  Hope to see you both real soon!

Have a happy Labor Day everyone!
