the tiny originals
ONE-A-DAY keeps the DR. away
This series of work was a labor of daily love. I created one or two original works a day during the non-sunny weeks in the middle of February and March, for 30 days. Doing this work during a time that I usually don’t produce many cyanotypes resulted in daily surprises and delights (most of the time - I did have the occasional fail!) and was a reminder to me that there is always a little light in the darkness, if I can reframe my outlook.
The Chasing Sun Collection
This summer it rained and rained. Sunlight was hard to come by, so when the sun did emerge from behind the clouds, I’d chase it down so that I could capture its rays in my work. Cyanotypes are a marvelous combination of light, air, and clouds, making each one a visual poem of the moment captured, that can never be duplicated again. I found it only appropriate that when my husband and I went to photograph my work for the website we found ourselves chasing the 4pm autumn-sun before it fell below the horizon.
