Cory Godbey’s Alice

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I love going to art shows, especially when you don’t have to travel too far! There are a bunch of talented artists in the South Carolina Upstate, however, this is one of my favorite artists! I recently went to a Cory Godbey‘s art exhibit at the Art and Light Gallery, called Alice! The lighting and coloring Cory uses in his artwork is spectacular! It’s really magical and fits the Alice theme perfectly!

The paintings, prints and drawings are all based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland!

My favorite piece is “The Glass Table,” behind Cory.

I also love these pieces…

While I was there, I bought Cory’s Alice sketchbook and he signed it for me!

Be sure to check out Cory’s website and store if you wish to purchase any artwork!

Cory is also one of the amazing artists that works with Portland Studios. Be sure to look at the fun animations and illustration they create!

Chloë, Kristine and Tessa

Chloë, Tessa and Kristine are three very close sisters! They wanted to surprise their family with some pictures! Picture surprises are always a great idea! 🙂

I love eyes! I had to get a close up of Kristine’s eye! I also love the bright orange leaves! We were on the edge of the woods so we had some natural light from above plus the sun was bursting through the trees in the woods! I love how half of Kristine’s face is lit orange.

Tessa has such an awesome smile here! You can almost hear her giggling.

These are Tessa’s favorite shoes, they’re Toms Shoes, where, when you buy a pair of shoes, the company gives a pair of shoes to a kid who needs them! How awesome is that!? These reminded me of Jackson Pollock, a pretty fascinating artist with a revolutionary style of painting.

I love the white dress and boot combination. Something about fall colors and boots, they just seem to go together!

There was an old wooden bridge in the woods!

I love it when there are a few green leaves mixed in with the brown fall leaves! It adds a pop of color!

Kristine is a student at USC, Go Cocks! Yeah, so those are chickens…but they’re related! 🙂

Chloë, Kristine and Tessa were very fun to photograph and talk with! When all three of them got together they are so silly and fun! We had a great time taking pictures on the farm where Tessa stays during the school year!

Bickel Family

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

I had the privilege of photographing one of my favorite artist’s family! One of my favorite painters is Jennifer Bickel. Check out her paintings at Marie Scott Studios. Her husband, Tim, is a structural engineer and their son is six years old! They moved from Wisconsin to the Greenville area about a year ago. She had an exhibit at the Trillium Art Festival recently.

I wonder who is stronger? Father or son?

Everyone likes to jump! I just love the fall colors! They are so vibrant and fun!

This little romantic interlude in the gazebo area of the Janie Earle Furman Rose Garden reminds me of a scene from The Sound of Music.

You have to check out Nathan’s awesome fort!

See the many fun things you can do on his fort! There’s a swing, rope ladder, wavy slide and more fun stuff!

Inside the Bickel’s house is a colorful wonderland filled with everything artsy! Jennifer is in love with pillows and probably has a different set for each season of the year! All of the decor matches Jennifer’s paintings which are on every wall throughout the house! Their house should be featured in Southern Living.

Be sure to check out Metropolitan Arts Council’s Greenville Open Studios Nov 6-8! Marie Scott will be one of many artists with their studios open for viewing! For more information go here.

I have one of her beautiful paintings hanging on the wall in my dining room!
