Everyday Objects Are Art Project 2014

When I look around I see art everywhere – at the grocery store, in a lock on a door or a broken window. Art is there and waiting for us to discover it and share it.

I typically start my new art projects at the beginning of each year but honestly, I was a bit uninspired this year. Thanks to the polar vortex, trying to keep warm was my main priority. Even though I’m still a bit chilled, an idea popped into my head as I was making coffee this morning. I was looking down into my glass as I poured coffee over the ice and I saw art. The ice melted into odd shapes and the light hit the edges causing this golden halo that was nothing short of beautiful. Yes, yes – I think coffee is the most beautiful thing on the planet but there was more to it today.

So here’s the project. Bring me an ordinary, everyday object. Something that is not already art. Bigger than a grape but small enough to carry easily. I will take some photos and create some art. All the original photos and the art will be shared here. If you like anything you see – let me know and we’ll see about getting you a print.

Bring me an object!!!

Business Portraits in Madison WI

New job?  Recently promoted?

When was the last time you updated your professional portrait?  If it’s been more than two years you need to have a new one taken.  Seriously.  Styles change with the seasons – do you really want potential clients to think you’re not up with the latest trends?  I know that sounds a bit ridiculous but most people want to know that the professional they choose for any service is current and relevant in their industry.  People are visual.  If you look outdated – then maybe you aren’t that innovative person they are looking to hire.

In studio or on site – we want to help you and your business be successful!

The most wonderful time of the year … for me

Share Random Photos Wednesday

Festival season officially began for me last night with the kickoff meeting of the Summerfest Street Team.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have a love of music that is somewhat … passionate.  And my love of the World’s Largest Music Festival is a part of what keeps me going through the long, cold winter here in Wisconsin.

I’ve been part of the Summerfest Street Team for several years – a team leader for the last two.  I’ve had such a blast getting to know the people that organize the festival and the fans that love it.  I can’t imagine not being a part of it.  Why do I love it so much?  There are many reasons – the music, the food, the people I meet.  The diversity of all of those things.  There truly is something for everyone at Summerfest.

If you want to know more about the festival go to summerfest.com and follow me on Facebook and Twitter (links below).  I will post updates, photos and let you all know where the Street Team will be so you come by and say Hi!  We always have some free tickets to give away.  Plus, this year we are hoping to have some events here in Madison.  Woohoo!

I’ll be sharing photos I’ve taken over the years on Wednesdays from here on.  Let me know if you recognize anyone on stage or off.

Share wedding photographs in Madison WI

Friday is Share Wedding Photographs

I love taking wedding pictures inside the Capitol building.  It’s architecture just screams for a bride and groom to pose.  On this particular day I had the luxury of time with my couple so we played.  On our way down from the third floor an idea for a mini photo story popped into my head.  I asked the bride and groom to stand in the middle of the elevator doors and kiss.  This is what happened …
