New Holiday Photos in My Etsy Shop

I have added new photographs to my Etsy Shop
that have themes for the Winter Holidays with Gift-Giving in mind so go and check them out!  The first is very much for Winter.  Welcome my self-portrait version of Hans Christian Anderson's
The Snow Queen A gift for the lover of Fairy Tales as well as just some fantastic Snow and Ice!
As with all of my photographs except the square format ones, she is offered at both 8x10 inches and 11x14 inches and is printed on a beautiful, satin finish archival photo paper in my friend John's Studio with his amazing Digital Ink-Jet Printer.  I can be there to make sure all the colours turn out just as I want.  Thanks John!
Next, is another self-portrait~my version of Queen Elizabeth The First titled My Elizabeth.
She is a colourful photograph with a lot of Holiday Reds to go with her Pale Green Eyes and Snowy, White Skin. Give someone the gift of Elizabethan Goodness. 
Finally(for now) is The Portrait.~ My offering of a Renaissance Style Painting.  This photograph is the perfect gift for the lover of classic art with the twist of my photographic interpretation.  The photograph is done with warm colours with a bit of an icy, blue veil~a combination that I ended up liking.  Warm and Icy~very much "Winter Holidays" to me!
I do have more photographs to come!  I am very excited by two gorgeous, vintage gowns I have just found and can't wait to wear.  The characters who will be wearing these gowns and their stories are floating in my head.  I never know quite how the photographs will turn out which is like opening a gift~ a great surprise.  I have my ideas how I want my photographs to be, but I make sure to leave room for "the art" to do its own thing.  Being flexible like this is a sure way that I am never disappointed with my finished pieces.  It isn't all up to me which is a huge relief!
I hope all is well with with the folks of Blogland!
Wishing you all my best!

Rani Collar Piece Photographs for Sihaya Design Jewelry

I have finished my Self-Portrait Photographs modeling jewelry for Sihaya Designs JewelryIt has been wonderful working with Christina Allen Page, the designer and artist behind Sihaya Designs.  Her work is not only gorgeous and so unique, but it is also so well made and comfortable to wear.  I can easily wear her pieces all day, all week long.  She is a photographers dream as well.  Her instructions for this set of photographs were a "White Witch/Jadis from Narnia/Pale and a bit Spooky" look in my own style.  How cool is that?  Christina, I look forward to working with you again!  Many Thanks!
The Rani Collar Piece features a gorgeous, teardrop shaped Cobalt Labradorite stone, silver scroll work, and a silver chain with labradorite beads.
We did some Sepia photographs too to capture the scroll work of the necklace.
Wishing you all the Best!
