Just Horsing Around at The National Western Stock Show 2014

The National Western Stock Show comes to Denver every January and growing up in Denver,  I have attended the show many, many times. 
It had been awhile since my last show, but I attended this year and wanted to share a few pictures with you.
A beautiful horse fountain.

 This horse looked so sweet.
A very successful show.

A beautiful horse with a beautiful tartan blanket.


I was lucky enough to watch this horse and rider warm up and took a lot pictures that all turned out blurry, so it was an artistic photoshop filter to the rescue.

Like many of you, I think horses are such beautiful animals and love using their images in my work.
Below are a few examples.

Thank you and I hoped you enjoyed the pictures.
All the best,

Rose Writing Desk

As I was just about to ship a Rose Writing Desk to a client today,  I walked by this room and could not help but notice the beautiful streaming sunlight. It's been very cold here, just like the rest of the country, so the radiance of the sunlight did not go unnoticed.
I remembered that the Rose Writing Desk photo on my website had not be updated in a while. So I quickly pulled some things together for a photo shoot while trying to keep up with the sun.
I knew I did not have much time, so I placed the items, swept the floor and grabbed my camera.
I did like the first pictures, but thought I had better take a few more just in case.
So I hurriedly snapped a few shots.
The sunlight did not go unnoticed by my pug Sophie either.
Then, she tried to run by between frames.

This time she thought the book on The Louvre might be good for chewing.
The dried pink roses looked so pretty that I placed them on top of the writing desk and took a few pictures.
Here's the uncropped picture.
Well, the sun was quickly moving so I took matters into my own hands.
I went over her head...
Not just once, but several times... the dining room table for the next few shots.
The first photos were the best to use on my website, but
I think my favorite shot of the day is this one.
All the best,
