New Year

It's a new year,
a new camera,
a new haircut,
& a blurry picture....

I don't like having my picture taken, but I had promised to share the new haircut.  I was trying my best to use the timer on my new camera, but I couldn't seem to move quick enough and couldn't figure out how to change the amount of seconds on the timer.  Thus, the blurry photo.  Believe it or not I had about 6 inches cut off and had my hair layered.  Most people don't even notice that I've cut my hair. 

While playing around with my new Canon Rebel T3i, I took this photo of my son and really like how the light from his new Nook Tablet was shining on his face.  I'm excited to try photographing my artwork with it soon.

Recently I sold some artwork printed on canvas through my Fine Art America store to a grocery store, Plymouth Hometown Market, in PA to hang in their bakery.  Here are the photos that Mark Tokach sent me of my cupcake prints above the bakery case:

Seven of my cupcake prints are hanging on the wall in the bakery section of the store.

Wishing each of you a wonderful blessed 2012!
