of three prints is at her shop right here.

Loving the tranquil
and sunny-but-totally-cool vibe.
Reminds me a little of Hugh Holland lovely.

Still digging my heels in

clinging to all things summery
and tropical on planet michele!

Yellow and Flowers

A shot from a far away island

of which I have never heard.
Mali Losinj is off the northern coast of Croatia

(just under the Istran Penninsula).

Aren’t the colors yummy?

If I could sketch, I would

sooooooo paint this!

Blue Alley 8x10

Blue Alley

Also on Mali Losinj, breathtaking blue walls

and textural interest has me sighing,

and I love the mystery of imagining what lies

just beyond that alley.

(Jason Bourne…?) 

Pastels 8x10

Butterscotch and cotton candy?

    OMG. I love photography as a subject and these are great. The beach pictures have a very mellow sepia with full tone color which makes it look so retro. I love her composition and framing.

    I love the blue shutters with the plants tumbling down the walls… and the wonderful nostalgic look of the people on the beach… i'm pretty sure i must have been there… i think that's me in the peach cotton skirt in the third photo…

    I actually will hop over. I particularly like the umbrellas with an attitude! And yellow sun hats to go with that! Ha!

    Love to you,

    Her technique is so painterly; it is truly beautiful. The beach scenes, especially, remind me of Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." If you are not familiar with it, google it and you will see what I mean. Thank you, Michele, for introducing her to us.

    The VIBE and the ultra coolness of even in the heat of the sunshine is just radiant in those beach scenes.

    Ya know, it's been p*ssing down with rain for days now in Manchester and it feels properly like autumn. Thank you for allowing me to hang on to summer just a wee bit longer. Love these, thank you for sharing!
