I’ve been juggling a lot lately but I want to get back into the swing of things as we move forward into the holiday season. Spent a little time today cleaning up my camera, organizing photos and updating images in one ofย my favorite online shops.

I love the quality of Redbubble’s production of a seemingly ever-expanding range of merchandise. My current personal favorites are the stationery, the acrylic blocks and the spiral notebooks.

Fall is here and there is much beauty to be found in the fleeting light. As I carry my camera into the world (hint, hint … several trips coming up!) I hope to capture images that I can share via this blog and in this online shop. Be sure to check it out on occasion. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of the great pleasures for me in living in the Greater Boston area is ease of access to nature. And by “ease of access” that can mean taking two trains, a bus and then walking half a mile or so, but still, I know that I am lucky to be where I am and that on any given day I can make my way to at least two major rivers, the Charles, and in the case of this image applied to a pouch and on stationery, the Mystic River. You can learn more about the Mystic River watershed here and peruse other items with this image here.

As some of you know, I’m rather old-fashioned and so in this age of digital everything, I’m determined to engender in my youngest friends and family at least a modicum of respect for that ancient art of letter writing, even if the only “letter” written is a smiley face on the back of a postcard. Years ago I started an informal postcard club with a small group of children and though they now know far more than I probably ever will about virtual worlds and zombies and apps and emojis, according to their parents and guardians, they are quite pleased to receive mail. I’ve been slack in my duties of late but I decided one way to bring some peace into these chaotic times is for me to sit down and put pen to paper myself and send out some notes to my little friends … and always with the encouragement that they write back. Which some have done. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This particular postcard I designed as a bit tongue in cheek using artwork from an 1886 stained glass window. You can find this card and others in my online shop.

My cousin Tim is an artist extraordinaire who creates elaborate urban settings with detailed maps. As a child I watched him do this with pencil to blank paper. He must have quite a collection of notebooks. But at some point he began working with MS Paint. He recently shared with me his latest creation and when I have his permission I hope to share his work and the stories behind his world. Meanwhile, I had to update my hardware and I “discovered” that I had Paint on my machine. I told Tim, “You create maps. I can’t even make a straight line.” He told me about holding down the shift key to solve that problem. He promised to continue sharing his maps with me and I mostly promised to share my adventures with 21st century technology that most people have known about for ages. Between tutorials from young cousins and Youtube videos, I may continue to delve into this digital art world. Meanwhile, here’s my fun for the day. Be well. ๐Ÿ™‚
