Have you ever photographed a candle?
This is a really yummy red candle shot without flash...
Then with flash...
I adore candles and with the rainy weather we have been having,
they are being burnt for sure!
On another note...
I have 4 darling little cousins.
In some ways, they are more like nieces, but they are cousins and
three of them insist that I make them their Christmas presents.
Aren't they cute???
This is an older pic, Nana the Matriarch of the family is center.
After years of my three sons dominating the scene.
Our family had 5 girls in a row...
They are all darling and wonderful girls.
Second from the left is Samantha, Sam as she is called.
Sam is NOT a girlie girl, so creating a piece of jewelry for this
little lass is even more special.
Sam likes Boy stuff, skulls, snakes, skateboards and the like.
So I sketched and hand painted a skull and crossbones for her on a 1x1.5 inch paper.
Adding her initial "S", the piece which was then applied to a bezel using diamond glaze.
As my New Year resolution is to incorporate original art in my pieces, this piece
validated for me that I am on the right track.
I hope she LOVES it!
Now Emily wants one.
Like I said...Oye Vey...GIRLZZZZ.
Merry Merry to you all!!!
