The Fence; New England Regional Exhibition, Kristen Emack  I have continued to feel dazed and amazed since learning that 5 images from my body of work, Appaloosa, was selected for The Fence. I do not typically share my personal work on my client site, but am so excited I really wanted to share this here. Head down to the see the national winners exhibition this month at Rose Greenway Park, near the North End. It is outside, and free. What a great way to see art! My work will go up in the fall at SOWA. CLICK the tiny link below and it will take you to the page. 

There is a People's Choice icon at the bottom of the page. If you like the work, give me a vote :).

Thanks for sharing in my news,

Fresh Pond in October                      HAPPY
"It might seem crazy what I'm about to say
Sunshine she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care baby by the way...Cause I'm Happy....!"

Autumn in Cambridge My wonderful childhood next door neighbors taught me the saying, "the family that prays together stays together," but somehow I remembered it instead as " the family that PLAYS together, stays together." Maybe because to me laughter is the result of play, and lifts our spirits and opens our hearts in essentially the same way.

Hancock Park Portrait Session Hancock Park in Cambridge, Ma.

Cambridge has beautiful playgrounds and if you haven't been to Hancock Park yet you are likely to find it becomes one of your favorites. These lovely sisters have practically grown up in this Cambridge playground. The slides, swings, sprinklers and sandbox seemed like theirs alone as they have been coming here since they were crawling. When I arrived they both informed me that they were fairies that morning, in charge of the sun and the moon. While mom and dad relaxed with a coffee at one of the tables, these sweet fairies lead me around the playground with hearts open and imaginations soaring. It was the loveliest of sessions.
