Come-n-get-it... Everything left in the studio is 40% off! :)
My outdoor shows are over for the next six months and this is my time to create new work. Translated, that means I need to make room! I have inventoried  E V E R Y T H I N G   that is sitting in my studio and posted it in my online store. I even polished the website so it's all bright and shiny.  ;) 40% off is probably the biggest sale I've ever offered, but hey... I'm on to new adventures in texture and there's no time like the pre...

The sign for my studio arrived just in time for my Open House this weekend!  Anyone who's in Santa Fe this Saturday and Sunday should definitely stop by as several of the other artists on the compound are also having open houses...it should be fun! Everything in my studio will be 30-50% off including Texture Junkie textures on CD and greeting card packs, both great stocking stuffers!! :)  And if you can't make it, you can order by phone.  Info on my website,  http://www.karenwatersart.com/calendar.html

Normally I don't share how great an app is, but this is the best thing in my life right now... My world (at least my 'desk world') is cluttered no more.  I LOVE my Wunderlist!!

With my outdoor shows done for the season, I thought I'd open up a new studio in town so collectors could buy my work during the winter.  This is in a beautiful compound with about 30 other artists and sits along the Santa Fe River, nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. That's my studio at the top!

We don't normally find wild mushrooms around here except up in the mountains, but this morning my husband discovered quite a number growing in with the iris seedlings.  I'm chalking it up to all the wonderful rain we've had this monsoon season...

Yes but too old and there is one agraricus that is poisonous that grows around here  - if you split the shroom and it has a yellow streak inside it in the flesh it,s agaricus pantherina (sp?) and poisonous, You would need to do a spore test to see for sure what it is. Lay one on clean white paper inside down - if it leaves brown dusty looking print after a few hours, it is agaricus.
In other words, don't eat it...  unless absolutely sure!

Flight Over Bernardo  (working title)

My usual problem is coming up with a title for my work, and this one was no different.  If anyone has any better suggestions, I wouldn't mind hearing them!  ;~D

Story
Tagline
Texture junkie extraordinaire!
Introduction

My father was a photography enthusiast when I was growing up, so I've been toting a camera around since I was in kindergarten. When I was a teenager, I was gifted a 35mm camera and that's when I realized I had a true passion for photography.

When I made the leap from film to digital, I discovered that I could blend photographs of textured surfaces with subject photographs to create depth and emotion. It felt like I had been set free because I now had a way to allow my imagination to flow, unobstructed. Nothing excites me more than layering multiple photographs together to compose a completely different image.

I refer to my work as Photographic Art or Artography because it reaches beyond traditional photography and allows me the freedom to bring my images to life in a way that the lens alone cannot capture. Through these images I hope the viewer will experience that there is more to our magnificent world than meets the eye.

----------------------------------------------------------------

I created the website Texture Junkie to share the textures that I have made and use in my work, which you can see at my website, Karen Waters Art.   You can also find Texture Junkie on G+ here.

I show with the Pojoaque River Art Tour and am also a member of the  Santa Fe Society of Artists and show my work with the group most weekends.  We're just off the Santa Fe Plaza from the end of April through mid-October. If you're ever in Santa Fe, stop by and say hello!

From start to finish our solar panels were planned and installed in a professional manner. The ease with which everything was handled was wonderful, from finding us a lender to taking care of the permits and inspections. We couldn't believe how fast and smoothly everything went. We couldn't be happier!
