All for Art & Art for All

As mentioned, I am featuring photographs of artwork created by tinkerdotdesigns. Each piece is whimsical, colorful and suitable for any décor. The original works of art are created using mixed media and prints can be purchased in virtually any size. (FYI - Magnets are also available and they make fabulous gifts.) Please note that some of my photos are only close ups of certain areas on a painting. If you’d like to see more, please visit tinkerdotdesigns.etsy.com - enjoy!

With This Ring

This seems to me the perfect analogy for building a new life together; a nest that will house a new couple. And fragile though it may seem, a well-built nest can weather any storm, protect a family and unite the partners who work to maintain and strengthen the nest year after year.

A Walk in the Woods

I will be adding to this post as the week progresses because I am just beginning to cull through hundreds of frames of this fabulous couple. We had a tremendous amount of fun hiking around a frozen lake, jumping on a bridge, throwing snowballs and making faces. It is such a pleasure to photograph people with a great sense of humor and I have already laughed out loud as I review the photos again from the comfort of my kitchen.

This next bit is for those of you interested in the photography aspect…
I wish I had put a hood on my lens because the glare was out of this world. (Fortunately I tend to like my photos lighter and brighter than most.) This particular couple is getting married in the fall and so I am experimenting with coloration that will be reminiscent of their theme despite the bounce of light from the snow. (It must also be said that “D” is one of the most photogenic women I’ve worked with. This lady doesn’t take a bad photo.)

Stay tuned…

Walking on Sunshine

I'm enchanted with the softness of this photo...
(This little lady is one of my favorite models and you are likely to see her often on this blog.) Normally I wouldn’t shoot in full sun but I wanted to see if I could catch the flare behind her shoulder. Despite the fact that she would have preferred to jump into snow drifts, she tolerated a few photos before running off to play.

Disappearing Act

It’s a snow day and we have been jumping around in our pajamas, eating chocolate chip pancakes and making some messes along the way. I couldn’t resist taking these before and after photographs of one of our favorite breakfasts. (This tummy happens to be a favorite of mine as well.)
