I attended the most inspiring still life photography retreat in Rivers, Manitoba last week. The most important creative event of my life!

Kim Klassen's 'Finding Stillness' still life photography retreat. It was an adventure...of discovery, playfulness, a love of art and style.

September stillness, my latest photo shoot. Abundance, foraged, just the thing to bring me back to stillness, creativity instead of productivity.

New blog post; ‘A walk on the wild side.’
The story of how I acquired 400 year old pottery shards and the result of an abstract still life photo shoot.

It’s a way a reaching out for the exotic, taking a walk on the wild side, without leaving home. Abstract still life photography in particular fits the bill.

Take advantage of cloudy days to shoot dramatic still life photography. Create shadows using natural light and positioning your still opposite the light.

Creative process and a dream-like state of being.
#creativity   #creativeprocess   #dreamyphotography   #stilllifephotography  
Only when we allow ourselves the freedom of a dream-like state of being, can we fully comprehend what we ourselves are capable of creating.

Party themed Paint Nights are now available at the Art Loft. I will be teaching several different themed art classes on Friday and Saturday nights throughout the summer. The first one, 'Sail Away,' will be on June 25th from 6-8pm. Check the schedule for additional upcoming themed paint nights featuring acrylic and mixed media instruction. I am sure you will love one of these fun and fabulous paint nights with a party atmosphere; I'd Rather be in Paris!, Garden Party, Make Your Mark, Livin' on the Edge, and Sail Away. Cool music and hors d'oeuvres included, byob. Check it out!
