Focus: Letters

I had largely forgotten about being contacted by Lark Books about some of my letter photographs on Flickr.

Some time ago I submitted releases and gave links to the photos I thought might be considered. Well a few days ago UPS pulled up and I couldn't for the life of me remember what I had ordered! I usually am anxious to receive supplies or new collection items so I was quite puzzled.

Oooooo! When I saw the return address label for Stirling Publishing I had an idea what it was. I found that two of my photographs were included. My kids are excited that Mom is in print. I think it's pretty neat too.

Mine is the Orange Block Black M.

The Ferry Morse Seed Box S is also mine - the small green paper label on wood in the middle.

Newest Collected Figure

Newest Collected Figure, originally uploaded by Lynn_EL/UnaOdd.

I really like this figure. No face or arms but lots of character. I was told it could be cottonwood and was found in a barn in Arizona. Some gnaw marks suggest rodent action. Here 'he'? is posed in the underside of a small bench set on end.

I really like the shadow... very Goreyesque.

Sigh No More

I was not familiar with Mumford and Sons...Thank you Dave, for lending the CD. This was just what I needed right now. Thank you Glenn. I love you!

I have to add this isn't an official video, but a film camp project - and I think it's just wonderful!

Sneak Peek - Ring Necklaces

I'm realizing that some people may be a little scared of my acrylic rings. How will the tall 'face' wear? Will they be knocking it on things?

I've decided to offer some in a more versatile format. Strung on a simple knotted cord they are a fun casual necklace. Easily removed they can be worn as a ring. Of course now I'm wanting to make some pieces similar to these that are meant to be worn entirely as necklaces - square holes, smaller holes etc...

Some day I need to actually list all these new pieces I make. If only the photographing and editing was as fun as the making!

Self Portait 4/8/11

Self Portait, originally uploaded by Lynn_EL/UnaOdd.

I was never really comfortable taking self portaits. I have decided to get away from the posed and stilted ones I usually end up with. Wildly spinning around the room, dancing, singing, shaking my head - letting it all out -having fun.

Really happy with how this one came out. Maybe it's all the new hair, but I love the mood.
