A repeated angle, plus a collage of textures and colors
Behind the photo: This photo was taken at Libby Story on University Drive in Starkville, MS. It’s a women’s boutique, and I was there to take shots of some of their favorite Spring 2012 styles for a client blog post. I looked down and snapped a picture of the floor. Serendipity!
Something about the muted colors, the dim light and strong shadows in this photo has been inspiring me for about a year since I took it. And I love the texture of the beads.

Sunlight can do some pretty cool things to a tabletop.
I’m excited to share some of the new things from my Etsy shop! If you’ve been following Plop! lately, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been incorporating painting into my sketch journal process. Watercolor has been my painting medium of choice since I was in college, and lately I’ve enjoyed getting back into it — pairing it with some of the hand-drawn lettering that’s captured my interest. I’ve been working on a few watercolor “word paintings,” and I’ve decided to add my first prints to The Frog Kisser shop — available as 8 x 10″ and 11 x 14″! Here are a few I’m starting with. I hope you enjoy taking a look!
I think of a still life as an image depicting inanimate objects. Just things, arranged in interesting
ways, where shapes and colors become the stars. Looking through a lens that way can elevate the commonplace to something really beautiful. I was looking through some of my photo files and thought I might share a few that would qualify as still life shots.

Some days are made for ice cream.
