Hello and welcome to my studio

Well, this will be my first blog. And you are one of the first to see it. Pictured to the right is my wife, Rhonda and my self on a bridge in Monet's Gardens in Girveny, France.

These are the same ponds that Charles Monet painted many of his water lilies paintings. This is where I learned that taking photographs of flowers was so relaxing. We were part of a tour and only had a couple of hours there. I could have spent the entire day there, for me there was so much to do and see. Rhonda found herself quite content finding the restroom and gift shop.

I have included a few of my favorite photos from the gardens in the slide show. Enjoy, visit my shop, subscribe and we'll enjoy a cup of coffee next time in the Studio.

About Me

My photo
Arkansas, United States
I and my wife of 30+ years have enjoyed many adventures together. One of those is the love of crafting. A few years back I discovered two of my favorite activities: Photography and Jewelry Designing. In 2006, while delegates for The Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, we visited Paris and Hamburg. One of our side trips took us to the Home and Gardens of Charles Monet. There in the gardens I dicovered the inner peace of enjoying, God's wonderful creation and variety of flowers, through the lens of my Canon. In 2007, while recovering from surgery, My wife took me with her to Hobby Lobby and I decided Jewelry making was a way to explore my desire to do something artistic while sitting in a recliner. So, that is why now that I have semi-retired and the kid are grown, I persue these activities and relax in my studio. Together we raised four sons and now enjoy visiting with our grandson.
