Some photo friends and I went to the Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, RI to shoot on a Sunday afternoon. Late springtime in Rhode Island is pretty, the greens are truly vibrant, the tulips and daffodils are all in bloom and the silhouettes of trees are wonderful as they have not leafed out yet. It was a pretty spectacular day. The print was then printed onto cotton sateen and hand/machine stitched and layered onto linen.
When you get so wrapped up in the book you’re reading time flies by. What a great feeling. Digitally manipulated photo printed on cotton and made into a Photo Fiber Panel.

For maybe the first time in a long time I understand the power of connecting with nature. This was a serendipitous encounter with the elusive Snowy Owl. It felt Almost mystical when I turned my head to the right and immediately made eye contact with this raptor sitting on the ocean rocks early one morning before Thanksgiving 2021. When I think of how I could have just walked right by I get chills. She has grounded me and I don’t think I will forget this feeling for a long time.
