We met and fell in love in Martha Stewart's last magazine.. The Rustic Ricotta Cherry Tart with Almonds. (Recipe here) I made ricotta cheese from SCRATCH... I am in love! It was so easy too and I think it made all the difference in the tart. Doesn't she look delicious?
So here we are in June already.. Summer fever is here... I've said it before and I will say it again.. don't beat yourself up if you're not in the studio everyday.. You'll always be creative if you're creative..doing whatever you are doing! (Like making cheese!)
I'm heading to the SDAI C-Note fundraiser tonight. If you're in the area, I am sure it's going to be packed. I helped set up the art for hanging and there is a TON of art to be had.. originals for $100-$400.. and lots of the art we saw cost more in framing alone. Should be a fun night.
The mega online workshop 8 Great Paintings is on super sale... $59! Show me a class that is a better value and I will.... well..you get the idea. Click here for more info.
Last..but no way least.. the marvelous Lisa Hoffman reviewed our book.. click here to see what she has to say..and to enter to win a copy too!
I got a call from a local number I did not immediately recognize last Friday..
"Julie. I have a camera for you."
"I'll be there before closing."
I have been waiting very patiently (well...I may have called a few, four or five times and dropped in hoping for a camera) for a few weeks. (Never fails..as soon as you decide to pull the trigger, what you want sells out nation-wide.) I have not purchased a new camera in a few years and the reviews for the new Fuji x100s had me weak in the knees.. I wanted one.. but a Fuji? Fixed lens? Point and Shoot? A Fuji?? Seriously?
I knew I wanted to replace my Canon G12 with newer technology (I carry one of these cameras with me at all time.. I don't have time to worry about lugging gear unless I am on a job)..but I was really hesitant to step away from my beloved Canon.
I was wrong.
This camera is a DREAM. I have not even read the manual yet..straight out of the box, I don't have one single complaint. (Well..maybe the LCD brightness...but that's adjustable..where is my manual?)
I was worried about it's speed.. I was worried about no zoom... I was worried about it's everything.. I love this camera.. all excellent. The image quality is amazing.. I'm looking for a change.. an adaptation from painting into photography...into design.. and I am pretty sure my new partner is going to be a big help.
What do you think? Pretty pictures, right?
This time last year I was in New York..... this time this year I am wishing I could go back for a visit. If only I could transport myself and eliminate the long plane ride...
Spring Break is coming up soon... I am enjoying my daily lunch break with my dog outside in the garden.. We eat a sandwich, drink Nespresso and play Words With Friends..
I'm filming a new class. That's right! It will be out next month....I think you're going to like it.
I'm searching...for a new RSS subscription wrangler... Reader is leaving..I'm not going to socialize my RSS.. it bugs me so much. Everyone thinks everything you do needs to be broadcast somewhere. It's disgusting if you think about it.. I'm not joining Google+ or whatever they are trying to get us to convert to.. I left Linkedin months ago....but people still want to "connect" with me there. Heads up- I'm not there.
The book is doing so well....so grateful. it will be traveling to you soon if you already ordered a copy! They bumped up the shipping date! See you soon....hope you're enjoying the signs of Spring.
Here's a laugh.....do you know how hard it is to be a photographer and direct a shot that you need to be in?
Full package. I shot the video and photography...edited the video and designed the website for Quantum Harmony Healing this week.. we're still hammering out a little of the content, but this is how it looks. My client is thrilled..and I am happy he's thrilled too. If you need website help, contact me for a quote. (Click on the image to be taken to www.quantumhealingharmony.com)
My grill on my mind these days....
