Home is Where the Hearth Is by Jaws. This piece took 600 hours. Amazingly, to produce this the artist had to put the snowflakes in first on a white fine piece of paper and then build everything around it. Think about it - this amazing work, and other pieces of the artists work can be seen at CNY Artists Gallery, which purchased this piece in 2013.
Fashion is my expertise I guess, but I just started taking nature and landscape images like that of the snowy wonderland. I'm slowly building up my nature portfolio for the direct purpose of having sellable images. It's really hard to sell fashion photographs, they are more commercial than fine art I guess.
I'm working on the pillows this week...and then we're headed to Buffalo this weekend. Once the mayhem is over I'll be able to focus a little better and start getting everything together we talked about on the phone :)
Ask the risk of being all bandwagony, I wrote a book about a vampire. Though not your usual vampire. It's more biological based - as in if vampires really existed, and weren't fantasy-filled magical creatures, what would they be like? Could they be at all? Could an ape evolved to hunt other apes - with that ape becoming specialized to hunt human apes. That's the premise. Who would they be and how would they live. There's also murders, and car chases, and grand fight scenes, plus a little romance because, as I was once told, all stories are love stories. That's the basic premise. I tired to keep it more literature than plup fiction. You can read excerpts on my blog - http://vampiretales-fox.blogspot.com/
Thanks for asking! And if you check out any of the excerpts, please do let me know what you think. Criticism is the best way to improve!
Hi Peter, Yes , I am a lucky lady. It was an awesome trip.
I tried to add my MP3 clip twice and couldn't figure it out? Any help would be welcome.
How did the show go??
I am coming into Syracuse on May 11th for the day so if you need someone to man the store on that day for a few hours, I'm your girl. I will be coming in first thing in the AM so let me know it sometime that day would help.
