The things an artist will do to complete a project. Can you relate to this story? I finished my February Challenge bracelet for the Facebook group, 'Realisart: Showcase for Jewelry Makers and Painters' and needed to take pictures. Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words....I take my pictures outside on my back deck, because of the lighting. I keep a bunch of scrap book paper in a plastic bin. When I'm ready to to take some photos I place the plastic bin on the deck railing, open it, choose my back ground, lay out the jewelry and take pictures. As you can see from the below 'accidental' picture, I even do this when there is snow covering my world (which is 5 months out of the year). This picture was taken as I slipped on the snow and caught the plastic case and bracelet with very, very, very, did I say very? cold hands.
As you might know, from my early posts, I have my home, here in the West Virginia mountains, on the market for sale. I will be moving to a Warrenton, VA where I'll have a lot less snow and perhaps a lot less strange pictures. I have so many memories of this beautiful mountain area, including my taking pictures of jewelry in the freezing and snowy weather.
Here's a another picture of the same bracelet. It will be listed for sale in my on line shop later today. First I need a hot cup of coffee and maybe prop my feet up in the recliner for a little break.
Have a warm and cozy day! Linda
