Celebrating tonight!
 Four of my photographs were accepted into the Capitol Arts Network Small Wonders Show!

The Opening reception is Friday, November 1st from 6-9pm,
Just as holiday shopping gets going...

Capitol Arts is located in Rockville:

 Equally outstanding news is that Dick Silva,  my father-in-law, also juried in with two fabulous pastel paintings!
So, we will be enjoying our first joint art venture!

So happy to share this delightful news on this Monday evening!


Happy Friday!

The Joy of Watching Them Work to Capture the Light

Playing with Light & Shadows...
to retell classic old fairy tales with a twist....
using finger beams and dark rooms...

And as always...getting a little help from their friends!
They are all so angelic in the dark!


Pinball Hall of Fame


The desert heat cries for a distraction occasionally... there is no better way to beat the heat and the exuberant sunshine than to head over to the Pinball Museum Hall of Fame!
I really enjoy the topsy turvy lights...

crazy roaring elephants...

Creepy clowns that laugh at your erratic control of the pinballs...
and marionettes that flirt with you during your games!

The little treats and souvenirs are so much fun to collect...

It is  rigged to lure little boys and girls away from their fistfuls of shiny quarters hiding in the depths of their pockets ...always coming out on top!!! And boy do they... such a winning place!

It is just nuts!
The candy is just as sweet...and it is a game to get it as well!
The biggest challenge is the low light, and seemingly endless games that are
mostly a modest quarter for the thrill of the play!

A new staple in the summer adventure list, for sure!

T'was the Night before school starts...

All the children in the neighborhood ran screaming through the streets, as their parents chased them to get them to sleep...
