a touch of light

Walking through the hall today my prism caught the sun and displayed the most beautiful array of colors on my wall...of course I had to grab my camera and pray they would still be there when I returned...they were...and then I pondered...how such beautiful colors, WITHOUT the help of Photoshop, can exist??...this was the real thing, a prism speaking the language of color...cool huh?

I thought I would post my newest Tableaux I have just added to my Etsy store...just in time for Valentine's Day....

I love prisms! Such pretty colors! Thought I would tell you, I have been playing around with some of your Unruly Shadows. Interesting for me.

Isn't it funny how easy it is to forget that heavenly colors existed before photoshop? Maybe the subtle colors of true nature are even more extravagent than artificial colors if we look at them openly...

I adore your new pieces listed in your Etsy shop. I love shopping on Etsy. I have 3 shop there!

What a beautiful combination of light and shadow! Your prism (and you) gave a gift to us all.

I've been scrolling back and forth between the tableaux. The first time down the line, I thought, "Oh! I love that feather!" Then I scrolled a little further, "Oh! I love those eggs! Oh! I love that feather!" And I kept scrolling back and forth, trying to choose a favorite. I *think* it's the first feather, but it's hard to choose. Lovely work.

Hi, Angela -- I walked past a display of Carlton cards in the supermarket today, and noticed one that had a shadow photograph on it, and of course, thought of you immediately (although I didn't think it was your work). A couple of months ago, I would have walked past without giving it a second thought. Thank you for opening my eyes to shadows!

Angela, check this out - it's so beautiful. I love Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World. Sarah Brightman also sings a beautiful version. Esp. with the animals, this'll bring tears to your eyes. -Amanda
