My New Etsy Store Opens Today – Blooms and Butterflies.Art

My new Etsy Store opens today, Blooms and Butterflies.Art.  Flowers have always been a passion of mine and this summer I wanted to do something different than I have done previously.  Back in May I decided to explore further these beautiful creations.  I wanted to capture some of what I saw but also take that a step further.  Fast forward after this desire made me obsessed and seeking out classes, new gear to achieve what I wanted and trial and error, I managed to capture some of the beauty that is only temporary during this season.  I wanted to get even closer to these flowers.  The details, the textures and curves, the colors that at times my camera couldn’t handle, it just amazes me.  The desire for me to capture these flowers also led me to seek out places that had them available.  This has led me to some of the most beautiful places where I have been spending my time, that has inspired me greatly.

I have had my Flower and Butterfly instagram, dedicated to just butterflies and flowers since March, because I probably have the most photographs of these, than any other subject besides my grandchildren…oh and my cats….and my dog, lol.  I wanted a outlet dedicated for them.  I almost closed this account because I couldn’t keep up with two instagrams and the closer that became, I realized I didn’t want too.  I wanted to keep photographing these beautiful flowers and butterflies and share them as long as I could.  I am no where near done processing what I have already taken and will most likely still be processing through the winter months.   My flower (and hopefully soon) butterfly watercolors will also be added to this store as well.

This store wasn’t planned but now I am happy to have it and have a place exclusively to share my butterfly and Flower art and photography.  There will be more added and many things fine tuned but for now the flowers and blooming and I’m excited to go spend more time with them today!

Flowers Art & Photography!

This summer, one of my goals was, and still is, to explore manual focus and photograph differently than I have in the past.  I am seeing things so much differently this summer. These flowers were taken this past weekend and I am very proud of them.  All of them were done with manual focus.   A few of these are actually practice shots taken at my home.  I wasn’t even considering using manual focus a year ago, but it’s reawakened my love for photography.  A lot of these I am also going to also paint this winter.  I have learned over the years to follow my heart.  One of the things my heart loves and I enjoy immensely is flowers and butterflies.  My heart just lights up when I am near flowers and butterflies.  I’m still going through the photographs taken in the last several weeks but these and more are available on my website for purchase.  More to come!

These Dahlias and more are available for purchase by going here:  Flowers and Butterflies
