After Uta Barth

Inspired by the work of Uta Barth, I plodded through the snow today to try my hand with soft focus.  The ordinary (and even the ugly) things in my neighborhood that I rarely consider became endlessly fascinating once muted by snow and an unfocused lens.  _MG_8439

My good friend, artist Nicky Pasterfield, at work in our little dorm room in Italy, and below, one of her fashion illustration sketches. ¬†See more of her incredible work¬†here, and look out for her in British Vogue, March 2013, where she will be featured in their Wall of Fame as one of England’s rising art talents. ¬†I’m so proud of you, Nix!

He was with me (in spirit) at a very poignant time in my life¬†before. Imagine my surprise when Libby and I stumbled upon this sculpture, which we gravitated towards before we even knew it was one of his, in the Brickell area of Miami. Not so well done on the exposure in the last one, Caroline, but the expression on Libby’s face coming down the slide was too fantastic to leave out!

Pardon me…

Hope State is undergoing a few changes, so please bear with me while I experiment with different website looks. ¬†I’m hoping that I can find a new layout that will make browsing through past posts much easier. ¬†Thank you for stopping in, as always! ¬†You can now read about how this all started in the updated ABOUT section. ¬†Feel free to leave feedback, or email me at CGoddard24@gmail.com, with regards the new site. ¬†Cheers!
