I love to be creative.  Whether it is writing, taking photos, painting, doing crafts with Henry, coloring a picture, decorating my home…I love to create.  I am drawn to art.  I am drawn to dream.  Every piece of art starts in the dream.  Some days I wake up knowing what I am going to write about or what I want to photograph.  Some days I sit at the computer and force myself to find something to write about and that usually starts with a photo.  Photography inspires me.  I love the imperfections in photography.  I think that is why I like to photograph nature.  A photo of nature can be anything you desire.  It can be a blurry bunch of colors and just pop or you can focus just on the inside of a flower…it's all up to the artist.  Like the photo below, super blurry…in my eyes, super cool and I love the colors.  The flower below that is beautiful, my favorite flower and I love the way it is only half lit.  Now some will tell you that I am an amateur, and they are correct but I am learning.  

Here are some more of my favorite, not perfect pictures.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Not creative but he said he was Pop sitting at
Pops desk at VIG

on the phone in the blurry back

He is perfection

DREAM, IMAGINE, LOVE, CREATE, INSPIRE…It's all part of the Blessed Life.
