Hello, Fall!

This is my daughter’s favorite season. I love it too, the colors, smell and spices. It’s also the time of year that I get crafty and start gift shopping for Christmas.

Living in Seattle, there are literally over a dozen holiday art shows from October-December. I’m getting into the swing of these with two local shows in West Seattle! My daughter joined me this Summer at the Alki Art Fair, and we had so much fun, that she will be joining me whenever possible at every event I do from now on until she’s ready to host her own.

So, mark your calendars for The Fauntleroy Fine Art and Holiday Gifts Show, 9140 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98136

Since the show is hosted in a church, the times for the show vary by day:
Fri. Nov. 15, 5-8pm,
Sat. Nov. 16, 10-4,
Sun. Nov. 17, 11-2

We’re getting excited as we print and package our art gifts. The show features over a dozen local artists from jewelry to knit to watercolor. This year, I’ll debut a new line of garlands like this one:

My latest addition to the art photography shop will debut in November!

Last minute show!

I spent last night preparing some new work for the Grand Opening of Photosynthesis, a Massage Studio in the Admiral Neighborhood on the West Seattle Peninsula. My first look at the new space was on Tuesday, and it has much more wall space than I was expecting!  The owners have worked hard putting in new cork flooring, painting and creating a very modern, minimalistic space that is also inviting.

After checking it out, I quickly decided that instead of filling the walls with work from my last show, I wanted to put work in that would really fit the space. Some of the previous show pieces fit the place, but I needed more. Thankfully, my favorite local frame shop is open until 9pm on weekdays. I literally felt like I was racing the clock to get 6 new pieces ready! Today, I had the pleasure of hanging them up. I am going to call this new last minute show, Soothe.

These are a few snap shots, which really don’t give the space or photos justice:

If you’re free tomorrow evening, Friday, Feb. 3rd, visit Photosynthesis!

Where: 3225 California Ave. S.W. Seattle, WA. 98106

When: Feb. 3rd 6-9pm

Or save the date for March 8th – the work will be shown as part of the West Seattle Art Walk!

p.s. Another Photographer’s work features images from Thailand and fill the Massage Rooms. Pretty stunning work!

Rainbow of Life Show: Thank you + Review

My Dad and Me, he gave me my first camera, a Polaroid when I was 10. Photo by Joe LeBlanc

The best part of the show was hearing from a cousin, “Wow, Holli, I didn’t know you did this!” It was fun to see so many friends and family members come out to see my work: big and pretty and up on a wall. The comments and compliments of strangers was even more delightful, because they didn’t have to like my work. Being a part of the West Seattle Art Walk was a little dream come true.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Opening Reception for The Rainbow of Life Photography Show. Thanks to all who have purchased a piece or print, we have raised $367.50 for the West Seattle Food Bank! And, those who brought non-perishable food donations – we’ve filled the donation bin up almost half way.

For those of you who didn’t get a chance to see the show, I’ve done my best put together a slide show of the work – at the bottom of this post. Now, onto a Review of the experience so far… Continue reading

Photography Cards with a cause

I am selling Photography cards to provide a way for folks to purchase a show image in a way that is very affordable, $3.00 per card. They are also being given away for a good cause: If you bring 2 non-perishable food items to donate, you’ll get a card as a thank you!

A main component of the show is that it will benefit the West Seattle Food bank with 50% of sales. In an effort to encourage and foster a spirit of giving for the month, a donation bin is on site for the month of January.

See you there!

Photography Show Countdown: Sneak Peek 7

fireworks and power lines

This is how we viewed Fireworks this past 4th of July: Through the window out toward the alley. Our little ones needed to get to bed, so we didn’t go out to one of the hot viewing points here in Seattle. And, you know what? It was amazing. I thought it was funny to see such a close up show provided by neighbors juxtaposed against the power lines.

This is an 11×14 print with a perfectly matching metal frame.

Photography Show Countdown: Sneak Peek 6

fern rising

Living in the Northwest, I have always loved Ferns and the grow prolifically around here. This is one of the smallest pieces in the show at 5×7, because I was using my Cannon Powershot when I captured this photograph. I usually carry this “pocket” camera when I’m heading to the park with my kids. Since most of our family photos don’t get printed larger than an 8×10, I don’t need a high resolution setting or a fancy lens. But, then I captured this Fern on the way to the playground. It’s one of my favorite. Despite the fact that it cannot be blown up to an 11×14 print, I thought it was worth including. It makes it more affordable!

favorite old books

An 8×10 Canvass print, I love the golden hue these books hold. Old books are so beautiful, I’ve found myself photographing them to the amusement of my husband. They hold a special place in my book shelves.
