Live and Die 4 Art

Maybe it was the full moon the night before, but I woke up yesterday with this idea, literally out of the blue, to photograph my friend (and model) Ingie Markovich in a local art gallery (The Peter Blake Gallery), exploring the theme ~ to live and die for art. In a matter of minutes images and props ran through my head, I sent a text to Peter to see if we could crash his gallery for a few hours yesterday afternoon (thankfully he agreed!) and well, here are the results. 
The incredible paintings in the background are by Jimi Gleason and Ed Moses, for more information check out

Better, not bitter

I spent a lot of years letting other people make decisions for me. Whether it was a conscious compromise or because of some hidden guilt disguised as social conformity, I was relinquishing control and I wasn't happy. The dissatisfaction and disillusion built up until I finally had to just explode, or meltdown or have a mid-life crisis ~ whatever you want to call it. I call it breaking free and living life on my terms and I've never felt better! Go ahead, unleash your inner dragon this year!

Brush strokes

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is a painting that is felt rather than seen ~ Leonardo da Vinci
I was inspired to break out my paints and put some color and forms on a big canvas yesterday. My plan is to create my own backdrops for some new photography ideas I have! stay tuned ;}
