September 30, 2008

Yesterday on my “i heart” I posted a masterpiece created by Tim Groen….it has been on my mind ever since.  Today I went back to Velocity and checked out all of Tim’s amazing work.  I am in love….

I can’t stop staring at them.  I find the colors and textures mesmerizing.  His collages are constructed using numerous types of papers, latex and acrylic paint and gesso. 

Every now and again I start folders of artwork I hope to own one day…
Tim has a folder of his very own…I don’t think I could choose just one.  Hopefully there are still a few left when that time comes….sigh….

I heart Monday.

My creation

hello all…it’s me, Mrs. French. I have been trying to come up with the best way to thank each and everyone of you for your constant words of encouragement, compliments, advice and inspiration. I think I have said it all before, however, I am hoping that you all know how much I truly mean it. The world of blogging has changed my life, literally. I had absolutely no idea this past March how starting little old bliss would change the course my life was moving in. First and formost I started out as a fan…I became a fan of your blogs, your aesthetic, your talents and soon began to see a new world more beautiful than anything I could have imagined. You all inspired me to start taking pictures and unlocked something inside of me. Anyway, these flowers are for you…they were taken by women I look up to…women that in some cases have become my friends.

I also need to take a moment to thank specific bloggers for posts that showcased my photographs or mentioned my shop opening…these are some of my favorite blogs and I encourage you to check them out:

Melissia Loves (not nearly as much as I love her)

Goodness, I hope I didn’t miss anybody…if I did let me know so I can make it right. I am posting this now, but look forward to visiting all my blog friends this weekend and catching up…if I ever can do anything for you please let me know. xo
