A passel, a slew, a plethora of new images!

What a difference a few weeks can make. Because I am now working with Grand Image, and they have happily claimed a whole bunch of my images (which I have happily granted), my site was looking a little puny. But just because I want to create doesn't always mean I do. Or more accurately, that things turn out the way I envision.

A couple weeks ago I just granted myself some space to go play. (Always easier said than done, right?) But I did just that, and as a result came up with a mess of images that I really am pleased with. Please check 'em on out my site: karenussery.com/latest.

Some are very similar to images I've created in the past, but their familiarity isn't redundancy to me. I'm still delighted with the simple elegance of succulents, especially.

And as I look at other artists' works, I realize that some people beat a subject to death before they're done with it. I don't know why I ever thought I had "enough" of a particular subject. When you really absorb and soak in an image that moves you, you can't get enough of it. I think part of my growth as an artist is to continue to illuminate and then trash these rules that unconsciously pen me in. Watch out.

Te Amo, La Nina!

I shared in my email update that I'm feeling a little stuck at the moment, artistically speaking. It's not that I'm not inspired, it's that I'm not inspired by what I'm creating.

But I do have some great subjects I'm working with, including some semi-abstracts of my husband's fine physique, and the wintry weather we are supposed to have this year thanks to Senorita Nina. This image is hopefully just the first of many snow and ice inspired shots.

So here's a question, Blog Reader: Are you on Facebook? I'm starting to feel like I'm repeating what I post there, and perhaps will discontinue the blog if FB is meeting the needs...? Opinion?
