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!

A few thoughts on the subject of #mindfulness  and #perfectlyimperfect  
Why not embrace our own imperfect state, give ourselves license to fail, to stumble, to fall, and see the beauty in it? As perfectly imperfect.

Seeing art in everyday life
Introduction

Karen Olson is an photographer and still life stylist.

Renuko Style is a place for creative inspiration. Let's talk photography - portraits and still life and travel photography. Let's add layers and textures and mess with our images. Let's make art! 
Our very being compels us to create things. It is the means by which we make sense of the world. I invite you to share with me how you 'see art in everyday life.'
