Girl With a Gold Necklace

Continuing my series of women and their jewelry I offer this lovely lady with her very modern artsy necklace. This turned out to be a favorite for me personally but it nearly didn't happen. I worried and stewed for several days about how I was going to capture this necklace. Finally I thought about the advice I give others when faced with a difficult challenge. Amazingly it worked for me too. Must be good advice I guess. This was not easy to photograph because I used interference paint on the metal which gives a wonderful effect in person but you can not see it in a photograph.

Girl with Silver Bracelet

Continuing to find joy in off beat palette colors (at least off beat to me) and these stylized women with their jewelry. Having such fun. It's been a long time since I was excited by a series! I already have two more lined up to do - amazing! About 5 years ago I did a series of old faces that had me going for a fairly long period of time. This may just be another long journey...

Girl With Dangly Earring

I do not expect you to like this but for me personally, it was wonderfully freeing and satisfying. The palette and style is stretched beyond my normal comfort zone but I love it and am quite pleased with myself. Sometimes you just need to explore outside your comfort zone!
