Well, Blog, it's no ordinary Artist we honor today, it's Katie! Yes, THAT Katie, the older of my two fab daughters. Katie is multi-talented (and that's not just a mom talking, it's more a craftsperson talking), but today we're focusing on her photography. Okay, Blog, I will not omit mentioning her photo on the cover of my 2009 novel Looking on Darkness. Can we carry on now? Thank you.
Today I completed the project of converting 12 of a series of Katie's "texture photos" to a wall art installation in our dining room. Check out how totally awesome it turned out, Blog:
Union Train Station in Gary, Indiana. Katie reports, "There's something for everyone from crusty textures to lurky corners to gorgeous flowers and berries growing from the rubble. My photography barely scratches the dusty surface."
Photo #6 was taken at City Methodist Church, also in Gary. Katie says, "It was like a museum really...beautiful dusty crumbly things at every corner. While I'm sad such a gorgeous place is in ruins, I very much thank Chris for showing it to me, so I too could find the beauty in this forgotten gem."
