Art is always so much more appreciated when we know the story behind the piece or behind the artist.  I hope you admire this stunning piece, and its story, from our CIJ Member StockLaneStudio on Etsy.

1. What is your work of art?

I have submitted a European Travel Photograph of an old worn red brick walkway of Beersel Castle outside of Brussels, Belgium.

2. Please share your inspiration for this piece.

This curved pathway reflects the many travels my family and I have taken and the cultural riches we have gained because of that.

I captured this shot on a visit with my children to the castle while living in Belgium. We were the only visitors there at the time so we had ample room and time to explore.

I love how the shadows enhance the curve of the path. Looking at this photo always brings back the feel of the old sunken brick and the thought of so much history passing under my feet.

But this pathway is appealing even if you have never been to this castle. The red brick is both a rich color yet earthy and neutral creating a fitting accent piece many rooms.

3. What keywords describe your work?

colorful travel photography, cultural impressions, wanderlust

4. Is this your favorite medium? Do you work in other mediums?

Yes, photography is my favorite, but I also enjoy other graphic art such as word art, typography.

5. What fascinates you?

Cultures, people around the world and how they make their lives meaningful. The natural world and how we take part in it.

1. What is your work of art?

Fine art photography with 30 years experience. I had to retire from taking weddings and portraits with my Hasselblad cameras last year because of my husband being diagnosed with Parkinson’s.  The fine art image I’m sharing is a red wooden bridge over a creek in one of our state parks in Bucks County, PA. “The Red Covered Bridge” is so special because it received a blue ribbon at our art center. While I was waiting one hour for the sweet light I was able to walk on rocks in the middle of the creek.

2. Please share your inspiration for this piece.

My inspiration for this print was the sweet light hitting everything in sight. We have four state parks in our county and my goal was to photograph each one in the best light.

3. What keywords describe your work? 

The keywords that describe my work are nature, landscape, water, seascapes, architecture, historic buildings, flowers, trees, mountains, autumn, winter, spring and summer, feathers, birds, photographs and fine art photography.

4. Is this your favorite medium? Do you work in other mediums?

Photography is my passion, and now my second one is typography. I love fancy fonts used for one word prints or quotes and scriptures matching my photographs.

5. What fascinates you?

When people buy what I love to design and handmade, taking images in the golden light and the sweet light.
