Photo Shoot Indoors

The barn that I photographed Seal in front of is on Jeri's farm. I love visiting her at her beautiful home. The last time we were there was at her birthday party back in July (where I couldn't find my keys!) and now there's a light dusting of snow on the ground. We were greeted warmly by Jeri and she welcomed us in to her cozy abode. To our surprise, she had tea, coffee, crumble, fruit and yogurt prepared like an English breakfast. Charming!

We talked for over two hours, catching up with the months that have whisked by.
One of the reasons that we came out was to deliver our artwork to Jeri.  She is participating in an art show in a couple weeks and has offered to take about 6 artists' work. Above are three copper vases by a local metal smith, Kenny Braitman.

A stone mason worked his magic on the fireplace wall, the posts on the porch and a long retaining wall in the front, using local stone.

Another artist friend, Meg Romero, creates incredible whimsical wooden objects and furniture, hand painted in amusing colors. 

This particular box holds their dog brush. It looks like it should hold something very precious, like an important document or special piece of jewelry. Jeri has such a lovely home, filled with artists' work. It's always a pleasure to visit, like going to a gallery. Thanks Jeri and can't wait to come back!
