I have anxiously awaited a shipment of photos. A 26 lb, or so, shipment.
Have you ever received 26 pounds of photos?
Yeah- neither have I. I was excited. And nervous.
Did I mention I was excited??!
Have you ever heard the saying "Go big or go home"? Today I have an altogether new appreciation towards the application of that saying in my life.
Perhaps this photo will help explain my excitement?:
I was so excited to pull these out of the box that I have not even looked at my 8x12 photos. Perhaps I should? In fact, I was so excited I could not wait until these large ones were framed to take their proper group photo. ;)
I had wanted to get some images printed large for a while, but with a move and a lot of changes in the last year, that desire took a back seat. A few months back my husband, who is a painter, and I were approached about the idea of having a joint show this September. Now, I'm very accustomed to my husband having shows and supporting him through the process. This? This is all new territory for me, personally. Now my husband is returning the support. In spades. He's always been my biggest source of encouragement. I'm so very blessed!
(Don't tell him this, but I kinda feel like I cheated...he's the super talented artist with the respected art degree. Me? I've just been hanging around with him since our high school art class.)
My work encompasses more than floral fine art prints, but they have tranquility and beauty about them that I just can't escape.
When winter encompasses the landscape and the flowers are no more, these images will help to keep spring in my heart as I imagine sitting in the warm sunshine which gives them life.
