Here in Central New York, we have already seen more than two feet of snow. I shot this image the winter we spent in Central Massachusetts. The delicate leaves of the lovely Japanese maple in our side yard were surprisingly resilient, withstanding the weight of the icy snow long into winter.
I photographed these delicate dried hydrangea blossoms on a sunny winter day in Central New York. Earth tones of beige, brown, tan, ivory, and gray are featured, and the ice crystals in the background create a beautiful bokeh effect. I enhanced the image with fine French script and layers of light textures.
It’s been one year since my family traveled to Austria. Even my ten and eleven year-old daughters appreciated the cleanliness of the pristine mountain towns, and the healthy lifestyle – hiking and eating fresh, wholesome food – of its inhabitants.
I photographed these woods as we followed the trail to Festung Hohensalzburg, the fortress perched above Salzburg.
The butterflies in this display are actually a pretty butter-yellow, but today I made them pink and added some vintage texture and faint script. How pretty they would be fluttering across a little girl’s bedroom wall or a baby girl’s nursery. A click on the image will bring you to my Fine Art America website.
This tulip is shades of Marsala, the Pantone color of the year for 2015. Photographed from above, the stem and leaves are hidden, giving this image an abstract quality. The shape of the tulip repeats in the blurred ground cover below, which is various shades of pink.
This flower was shot in April 2014 in one of the many gardens at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Italy on the shore of Lake Como. April is an ideal time of year to visit Northern Italy if you wish to see Spring bulbs in bloom. The image links to my Fine Art America site.
