I took these photos
a few weeks ago
and have only now had the chance
to share them here.

The season is changing so fast
this time of year!

I am starting to get excited
for Summertime.

I haven’t had enough concentrated time or focus
to work on any sustained projects in the studio lately.
But I’ve been doing
which always make me think
of college
(does every professor,
in every studio class
have a self-portrait assignment?).
They are such good practice, though;
that direct observation
and attempt to see past
what I “know”
about my face
can be so refreshing.

A gift.

I've always considered it
great good luck
to come upon
a trillium.

My favorite time of day.


Beach House - Lazuli
(the perfect soundtrack)

If a year in my life
were translated into a novel,
this part of Springtime
would be detailed by the chapter
In Which I Go On Lots of Evening Walks & Take Too Many Photographs of Flowers.

When I was younger,
I believed that tulips
were boring flowers.

In retrospect,
I don't know what I was thinking.

Tulips are amazing!

I am continuously delighted
by their
seemingly endless
range of colors
(there is a shade for everyone).
They can be striped,
or marbled
or delicately ombre,
with edges rounded,
or ruffled.
Some are petite as a teacup,
others as large as a globe of wine.
Still others
hold surprises within
where veins of blue
or a burst of glowing white
contrast the color of their petals.

I am sorry I ever thought ill of you.
