look ma i can choose to focus


look ma i can choose to focus Originally uploaded by dressform.

this was what was in my box.... i splurged... i went for it.... the big D50! good for my work, right?? [part of my justification] i was lucky enough to get a zoom lens... so far so good. there are so many settings i can't get over my choices. and the clarity .... mmmmm.... i had a dream that i was using photos in my art... that someone saw the polaroids and wanted to have a show of them [yes, wishful thinking but isn't that what dreaming is for??] i've been taking more polaroids too! i think it's because i'm feeling so OUT of my studio that i want to be doing something where i'm looking. something creative. something where i'm searching....

ranunculas yeah again

the ranunculas are starting to open... so wishing for spring... although i have to say this insane weather we are having is entertaining... hail, rain, sun, wind, thunder, lightening... snow in san francisco?!?! all in random order.... drawings tomorrow!

yes, it's always when I can't be in the studio that I want to be there. To wit, it's spring break and all I want to do is (a) clean my kitchen [done!], and (b)lounge around eating (or, better yet, being fed) bonbons and watching movies. Obviously neither of those things = the ton of work I needed to be in the mood to do in the workroom this week. But I would put money on wanting to be in there again AS SOON as school starts back up on Monday. Ha. Sigh.

amanda... yes! you will be the first to know if i learn anything!!

eireann.... right there with you!!! :)
l.o.v.e. ranunculas!
