Every February I have the honor to show my work in the Thayer Academy Gallery. I take the opportunity to mark the year with photos of my family as well as presenting my personal work. Come by for a visit during the closing party on March 6th from 3-5pm. I would love to see you! Henry Miller, architect, Steven Branfman, potter, Diane Haigh, graphic designer, Karen Koskores, painter and Bill Searle, painter, join me in this show.
XMas Card 2013 – Below is my family’s holiday card from 2013. This note was included with the card: We received the greatest gift a family could get this year. Last June Nicki gave Duff the gift of CPR which saved him from a life ending heart attack. The amazing EMTs and incredible doctors kept him going and made today possible.We are incredibly thankful for all the love and support our friends and family shared. The prognosis is great – get back to living life to its fullest! We wish you a happy and healthy 2014! Jump for joy. We made it!
Riley Splits – Riley has found her passion which happens to be competitive cheerleading. Everywhere we go she is doing a handstand, splits or backhand springs. This spring afternoon was no different.
Here Comes Trouble – Here is a typical portrait of my crazy, energetic, tween girl.
Ty – My Favorite Little Guy – A portrait of my son Ty who is going through a super sweet, loving stage. I know it won’t last but eight is great age!
The Best Pillow Ever! – Moose, our Great Dane is the warmest, most snuggly mass of a dog you could ever meet.
The following images were all created during a blizzard in January 2014 at the Chatham Bars Inn, Chatham, MA.
Linear Lanterns – While the blizzard blew the snow onto the porch, the lanterns surprisingly stayed perfectly aligned. I love the patterns and symmetry in this image.
Carried Away – Driftwood is an attraction no matter what the weather. When it is frozen to the sand and covered with ice it is fascinating! I love the contrast and texture in this image.
Adventure Awaits – This arch typically marks the entrance to fun in the sun at the Chatham Bars Beach. The billowing winds and pelting snow resulted in a more adventurous afternoon walk on the beach!
Forgotten Fire – I love the windswept dunes in the background and the snow covered fire pit. It is such a contrast to the typical activity that happens here.
Gateway – I kind of felt like the ice covered latch was saying “Are you SURE you want to venture out to the beach?” To be honest, I only lasted about sixty seconds on the beach since the pelting snow and sand were relentless.
Whistling Winds – The word “blizzard” is for sissies or so I thought before this afternoon. I was amazed at the low visibility and the immediacy with which my hands hurt as I held the camera out in the wind to take this photo. I love that you can see the crisscross lines of snow in front of the silhouetted house.
