The Perfumed Land of Lilacs

These beautiful trees are abundant in flowers and aroma and fill the house and gardens with luscious blooms and fragrant aroma.  I am in awe of them as they brighten my Morning Room and smile as I now have eight lilac trees from the mother trees and soon will have a grove of them in my “Perfumed Land of Lilacs.”  Stunning describes them best when brought indoors to photograph and enjoy.

I, WHO fade with the lilacs
And with the roses fade,
Am sharing this hour with them
Conferring in the shade.

Passion for Infrared Colors in Art

I love infrared photography whether in shades of black-white or colors.  One of our favorite photographers who shoots infrared is Clay Blackmore who creates amazing bridal infrared images.  I love creating images of nature in infrared and then process with various techniques to create art for my “Art on Canvas Collection” for Classy Chic Home Design Studio.  This is one of my latest creations for living room I designed in stunning pastels. It will be a very large canvas for the focal point for the room to draw one into the beauty of nature in spring.

“THIS peach is pink with such a pink
As suits the peach divinely;
The cunning color rarely spread
Fades to the yellow finely;
But where to spy the truest pink
Is in my Love’s soft cheek, I think.”

Kaleidoscopic Colored Skies

The beauty of Autumn in the Skies again!  I am speechless as I gaze upon such beauty in nature that I lay down my camera gear and just allow the beauty to mesmerize my eyes, thoughts and experience the lovely magnificence before me.  It is no wonder that photographers travel to the ends of the earth to capture the beauty of creation and to bathe in its loveliness live and in person.  Should you travel to the uttermost parts of the earth to behold it?  Yes, yes a thousand times yes!  But, my friends, do not despair if you are not able to travel far away, simply go outdoors and gaze upon it morning and evening where you are.  It will mesmerize you too with its kaleidoscopic colored skies and earthtoned hues from sunrise to sunset.

Say it well then romantic poet…

“IN your arms was still delight,
Quiet as a street at night;
And thoughts of you, I do remember,
Were green leaves in a darkened chamber,
Were dark clouds in a moonless sky.
Love, in you, went passing by,
Penetrative, remote, and rare,
Like a bird in the wide air,
And, as the bird, it left no trace
In the heaven of your face.
In your stupidity I found
The sweet hush after a sweet sound.
All about you was the light
That dims the greying end of night;
Desire was the unrisen sun,
Joy the day not yet begun,
With tree whispering to tree,
Without wind, quietly.
Wisdom slept within your hair,
And Long-Suffering was there,
And, in the flowing of your dress,
Undiscerning Tenderness.
And when you thought, it seemed to me,
Infinitely, and like a sea,
About the slight world you had known
Your vast unconsciousness was thrown.…”
