I used 9 frames, (10 second exposure each) to create this animated file.
Taken around 8pm October 8 2013. A friend of mine told me about a meteor shower happening that night so I planned on finding somewhere dark & had my camera ready just in case I could catch some meteors.. Instead I was very surprised when I saw a faint glow that was moving over the lake. Being a northern lights fanatic I immediately knew what was happening & could barely believe it. The northern lights visible in the Chicago area. That doesn’t happen very often. And I just happened to be at the lake that night.. Awesome!
The 10 second exposure really picks up the lights well.

I might have a small obsession with the Northern Lights. I realized this last week when I heard about the powerful solar storm that happened on the night of March 6th & 7th. The solar storm produced a coronal mass ejection (CME) which was headed for earth & expected to reach on March 8th. As soon as I heard about the solar storm, I wanted to drive up as far north as I could get. Continue reading

A few weeks ago was my Grandpa’s first birthday in Heaven. For weeks I’ve been debating on if I should share the story about how I was inspired to draw this (afraid to sound like a crazy person) Continue reading
I think we should all celebrate love EVERY day.. I don’t mean candy, cards, flowers, etc….. Just LOVE!!! :)
and now, I bring you some pictures of a special doll.
It's eye looks REAL! The reflection of my camera lens was a completely cool creepy accident. Love it!
I was in a lime green & purple mood this past weekend & below are the results of my artwork. My partner even joined me painting this weekend but those aren’t finished yet. There will be more to come. We were inspired by these colors because lime green is the color of the cause of awareness for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and purple is the color of Ethan’s birthstone (amethyst).
For the next few weeks, 100% of proceeds for all art I sell will be donated toward the walk I will be participating in on March 24, 2012.
