inspiration: lisa congdon

For the record (again), I do realize that my blog is all over the place. But this is how my brain works: one minute I'm drooling over a patent leather Michael Kors shoe with a cute black-and-white piped wedge, and the next, I'm wishing that I lived in this photo. Though the title is generous, this is why I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades, master of nothing.

My praises to the ever-talented Lisa Congdon for keeping me grounded and eternally inspired. In my book, she is a master-of-many-trades. Lisa is that uber-creative type: she's a mixed-media artist (I love her shadowbox/collage works) but her photos aren't half bad, either (that's hers pictured above, not mine). It doesn't hurt that I have a passion for the same subject matter that she does: fields and skies---and for me, what sits at the line where they intersect.

This post from her blog, A Bird in the Hand, is the kind of stuff that makes want to take a 5-hour trek to Mt. Pleasant on a Saturday afternoon: to get away, and then, start looking around me ... and up. I'm dreaming of green grass and blue skies, right now.

Hurry, spring!
