In the begining in the land of social media, there was a blog, a journal a diary and it was scattered all over the place. The journals and diaries were in boxes hidden under the house. The old blog was on the other website. The other postings and musing were on a business facebook page which (due to the hidden gods of technology) becomes inactivated from time to time. What is still here is this website and this blog, which I have never actually activated or used. That should change now. Facebook shouldn't own my content or have the power to disable all my content. Yes, I will be back on Facebook, once the IT gods over in India figure out I'm not a hack and my artist pages are actually mind. In the meantime, here I am typing on my own blog, hosted on my own website at 3:10 am. What's new? Alot of things - over on my Fine Art website, there are new images of donuts, chocolates and the latest, a rainbow henna cookie creation with jig saw puzzlers in mind. Over on my portrait site - I have been playing with natural light, backlit images at sunset are my new favorite creations. This weekend, one of the first Fairytale Storybook Sessions will come to live. I have found a model who bears a striking resemblance to the SnowQueen, AKA the movie all little girls have been crazy over for the past few years and will recreate an "inspired by" version using the magic of Photoshop. I'm excited to roll this out. The long term plan which has been simmering for literally over a decade is to create custom images showing children as their favorite literary or movie character and then create a storybook showing these images in riveting detail along with personalized information for the child.
