This photograph was taken during the first blizzard this 2013 winter in Minnesota at the beautiful Minnehaha Falls park. Not an easy park to get to through deep snow and steep stairs. I think I've decided this piece will be entered into the Minnesota State Fair fine arts exhibit for this year.

I'm pretty sure I've never had a birthday blizzard. I suppose I can't consider four inches a blizzard though. Yesterday ended up being a great birthday. Woke up early to beautiful snow covered trees and dragged David out of bed (he has to do what I want on my b-day), hoped into warm clothes and drove 10min. to Crosby Park by the Mississippi River. The snow was already slowly melting, but I was able to capture some nice photos. It was a great way to start the day.

I've been meaning to work with these barn photographs I shot years ago during a trip to Alberta, Canada. Many of these barns were abandoned Ukrainian farmsteads, some still in use. I've "roughed up" these images to make a series of rustic/vintage looking prints. Maybe I should dip them in coffee too? Oldschool.

I've been wanting to make an encaustic of poppies all year. I ran across a few last summer but didn't have my camera handy and missed out. So I've been dreaming of finding some again all winter. Last week when I went to the Como Conservatory they had these Icelandic Poppies! So thrilled. Probably took 200 photos of these beauties. Here is the smallest one I'll be doing (6x6). I'm working on much larger ones now which I'll post about soon.
