I am doing a happy dance for her right now!
Susan is an especially wonderful creative soul who is seeing all of her hard work pay off---I love that. I love passion and seeing people do what they love. Isn't that a beautiful joyous thing?
Now available for pre-order is Susan's book.
I am excited about this book for many reasons, the first being that it just sounds incredible.
I visited her blog this morning and then visited some of the artists she has linked to in her post about Exhibition 36 and found a wealth of inspiration there in those few minutes so I can only imagine the creativity the book itself will inspire.
The second reason I am excited---see on the cover-there in the left hand corner, see that little girl---she is from a transparency piece I created. I tear up sometimes when I look at her--I feel such a connection to that dear soul, whoever she was. I found the image in an antique store but I think I will claim her as one of my own.
Susan, I feel more blessed than I have words to describe to be included in this book. Thank you dear friend.
Yesterday I played around shooting with my digital camera through the viewfinder of a second camera. It is SO fun--I think you should run to your camera/cameras and try this right away. :)
You can learn about the TTVF technique here.
There is a handy contraption you can create to avoid glares and I would recommend making one or something similar. I haven't done that yet which is probably one of the reasons I ended up with only one shot that was a keeper. Oh well. I had fun and that's the most important thing. More and more I am trying to focus on the truth about the joy being in the process of creating and not so much in the end result. Sometimes that's a difficult concept for me to wrap my mind around and other times it's so clear. Funny how that is.
Funny how life is. How wonderful!
update---added another TTVF shot---not so happy to be interrupted from her dancing to pose as you can see from the expression.
