A perfect summer day in Maine.
As photographers we are constantly chasing the light. After the rain, here in the hills just beyond the ocean, is the stuff of dreamy images, atmosphere.

Using found materials to create still life images, challenging! Forces you to get creative with composition, line and rhythm.

How did the color blue get such a bad rap?
How is it that the color blue got such a bad rap? Singing the blues, blue Monday, Pablo Picasso's blue period, and Blue Meenies - all not so positive.

And so it was on this perfect summer day in Maine. A country road, a field, daisies, and laundry swaying in the soft, sweet breeze.

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.'
