Great Inspirations

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home." 
-- Twyla Tharp

This is such a profound quote for anyone who has experienced great escapism through an art form. Music, writing, drawing and painting, eventually stepped aside for Photography, a synthesis of genres. Whenever I miss the people, the arts, and the energy of Chicago, I spend time creating 'City Novellas' ©. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Gratitude ~ Etsian Love Letters

Little moments that quiet the creative spirit, and make it all worthwhile...

Hi Mary, 

I should really be thanking you for sharing your art. I drop by your shop when I'm missing Italy. 

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Florence and Venice, and have been fortunate enough to be able to travel back for a few days since. Neither of us is Italian, but those places feel like home, and are so beautiful. 
Some of our photos disappeared when we made a thief very happy one day, 
so it's nice to be able to appreciate yours. :-)
Thanks again, and best to you! 
S. B.,  Detroit

... xoxo to S.B.
