I have been evolving from a psychologist to a writer, photographer and mixed media artist in fits and starts for many years. This blog has an archive beginning in 2008 and won a writing award in 2009 and then after changing its name and focus to creativity and not commentary, I arrived here to its current state of blend: creativity & commentary. Brilliant. Took me five years to figure this out. Oh, and PS. I also host a weekly podcast at another venture Art of the Diet which began in 2015.
The Photo Gardener now has a shop! Many of my still life photographs will be for sale. This still life creativity habit has become my secret health plan: if I photograph fruits and vegetables, I eat them. It is a garden that blooms 12 months a year with the help of local farmer’s markets and grocery stores in the winter and for an agin’ Irish girl, the thought of blooming in the dead of winter is a welcome balm.
I’ve made a line of coasters which make great Hostess gifts, Housewarming gifts, Gifts for those who love gardens and gardening or simply gifts for Art Lovers who drink.
I was going to name my shop “The Art of Drinking” but the name was already taken. Perhaps, another agin’ ambitious Irish artist?
Drinking accessories do seem appropriate for listening to the news.
