Man! I Feel Like a Woman: Portraits of Pride Internationally Inspired, con't


Much of the art at the 2013 Carnegie International is about courage and risk.  These two elements inspired me to prepare and exhibit a series of five portraits taken at Pittsburgh Pride.  The price of the full series is $250.  After the exhibit, individual pieces will be $75.  Please contact me if you have interest in purchasing this series or the picture Old Friends also in this exhibition and shown in the last blog post.

The exhibition continues until March 29th.  On that evening, there will be a Closing Party from 6 - 8 pm with artists talking about their work and light refreshments.  However, I will be gallery sitting on Friday, March 28th from 11 am to 4 pm with artist, Holly Pultz.  Please come by and see the exhibit.

Winter Zoo Visit


Fish Portrait


Flamingo Sauna




My Carnegie Museum membership enabled me to have a no fee trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium yesterday.  It was cold, but sunny and I enjoyed wandering around.  On Saturday, there is a no fee trip to Phipps and on Sunday, a no fee trip to the Aviary.  Sweet!!

Allegheny River and Aspinwall Alleys


Seagull Two

Seagull Three


Maple Leaf

Racing Steed

Garage Handle

Had a great time with my high school friend Jackie Bruno Carden visiting the 13th Street Launch in Sharpsburg and walking around some Aspinwall alleys.   

I read yesterday that the number of seagulls on our rivers this winter has increased due to the freezing of the Great Lakes.  I love seeing and hearing them as they remind me of being by the seashore.

The alleys are always fun to walk and shoot.  I am always spotting new details.

Let's be Resolutionary .....

Happy New Year!

I resolve to be grateful and kinder.
I resolve to get outside in the fresh air everyday; and sometimes even take pictures!
I resolve to keep in touch and honor my commitments to others.
I resolve to finish the projects I start, get away from the computer more and do the seven minute workout.
Oh, I also resolve to read this list and remind myself of today's good intentions : )

Looking Through Some Oldies!

Junk Yard Cars


Tines and Brush

Junk Yard Car

Sometime in the 90's during a trip to Delaware, Ohio, Jim's mother introduced me to a fabulous local junk yard.  I think I took three rolls of black and white film that first trip!  It was the new era of C-41 and I had the pictures put on a small disc as well as getting negatives for the darkroom.  Two years ago, I started a project of going through all of my negatives and discs to "organize" them better.  Yeah, right, Ruthanne!  Anyway, I put the discs in the only computer in the house that still has a slot for that size and saved them on a flash drive to be added to my collection.  I found these the other day as I was looking through that collection and love the tone the C-41 processing gave to them.  Not sure where the other ones landed, but they will show up somewhere : )
