Photo Diary // The Secret Garden

"Haunted"
Pouring my feelings into this special new piece for the Copycat Violence: An Artist Collective Ghost Stories show at Penumbra Art Boutique & Studio this June. 
Adding all those finishing touches...
 High on sunlight in the studio. 
 And then a bit of grainy evening light, cool breeze, windows opens.

Maybe they’re just a pair of shoes, but they were going to mine… and when the e-mail confirmation deep-rooted his completely unexpected purchase, all he said was, “Well, I…
