Art & Family
I had a great week last week, mostly due to a visit from my Sister Dianne and my Niece Nichole. Both highly creative, smart , witty and fun. As part of the creative village I love to bounce things off of, these two are at the top of the list.
My sister and I have always been incredibly close ( except for when she quit our rock band “Stardust” when she was 10 and I was 8. A crushing blow.) She developed into a most amazing photographer ( see work above. But even better examples at her site) with a successful creative business. Now not only do we bounce creative ideas, hurdles and victories off of each other, but also the ever changing commerce of art. Check out her blog at http://www.diannepoinskiblog.com/. She has a lot of wisdom and inspiring photographic masterpieces to share.
My niece Nichole , ( 25) has planted herself in Seattle Washington, entrenched in environment and simplicity culture and working in communications. With wisdom beyond her years, Nichole has a highly insightful blog and collections of writings that shows a high talent for poetic observation. Check it out at http://liverhythm.blogspot.com/.
Forgive my gushing about my family. I’m just grateful . And they both helped me through some log jams. for which I thank them.
