Photograph of the Week

Cloud Edges

I love photographing clouds, especially when they offer a wonderful contrast to a silhouetted piney foreground.  At the cabin, we get the fun reflection of the sunset on clouds to our east.  This is an example of that.

Photograph of the Week

Coming to a Window Near You

From what I have seen on Facebook and outside my study window, we have had a calm weather Thanksgiving weekend.  May it continue as family members depart  BIG SIGH - Matt and Kelly and start off the new week.

La Nina will supposedly lead the way for a calmer winter in Pittsburgh, but you never know.

Love to hear from you and let me know if you want to take a walk!!

Photograph of the Week

Birdbath Tree Reflection 

Aww, mid November!  An odd time to start a series, but the above is my first Picture of the Week.  I have been remiss in posting on my blog this year.  Perhaps this will be a successful new beginning.

Always seeking suggestions, comments and assignments.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Photography and Faith Part III

O For a Closer Walk With God, a hymn from the Episcopal hymnal, had me again reflecting on photography and faith.  Written by William Cowper (1731 - 1800) with music from Caithness, 1635 and The English Hymnal,1906, it had me visualizing a post immediately.

"O for a closer walk with God, a calm and
 heavenly frame, a light to shine upon the
 road that leads me to the Lamb!"    

"Return, O holy Dove, return,
 sweet messenger of rest; I hate
 the sins that made thee mourn, and
drove thee from my breast."  

"So shall my walk be close
 with God, calm and serene my
 frame; so purer light shall mark
 the road that leads me to the lamb."

As the year draws to a close, I want to thank my followers and other friends who enjoy and have supported my photography voyage.  It has been a great year for me, but I could not have done it without the support and help from numerous people.  

Thank you, Carolyn Pierotti of Purple Room Fine Art and Percolate Art Space & Gallery ( for the exhibit at Chromos Eyewear in Lawrenceville.  It was a grand show in a special neighborhood!

I was thrilled to work with Laura Domencic of the Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for my one woman show at Pittsburgh Filmmakers and thank her for her fine eye, patience and professionalism.  

Thank you, Kathleen Wendell for your support and choice of my work for Arts & Crafts at the Library at Cooper-Siegel Library in Fox Chapel.  It's been an honor to show my work in my "own neighborhood" and have sales support a fine institution. 

At the Eastside Gallery exhibition, I got to show work in the same space as several of my idols - Adrienne Heinrich, Phiris Kathryn Sickels and Kathleen Zimbicki along with new friends, Susan Pollins and Debra Platt.  Such a fun space!  (

Thanks also go to Hoyt Art Center, the Pittsburgh Society of Artists Exhibition Committee members for their fine exhibitions this year, Tula Organic Spa (Thanks, Carol Skinger!) and Most Wanted Fine Art.

A couple of exhibits are still ongoing.  At the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, "The New Collective" runs until February 26, 2017.   I have two photographs in this show - a collaboration of the Center and all of its Guilds.  My two images are below.

 At Cooper-Siegel Library, Fox Chapel, the "Flavor of our Community" will continue until Spring, 2017.

I wish you all peace, happiness and great art in 2017.
