I’ve been talking to someone at Easy Canvas Prints for a good 6 months now – through renting and then buying a house, to finally deciding I could start putting something on the wall. They were patient and so helpful. Three cheers for them! The conversation changed from month to month and we finally landed on instagram photos.
You can follow me on instagram, I’m @jodimichelle, who are you?
But photos, the other language I speak. The way I draw, illustrate and punctuate our lives. Like bookends to the memories we make, a photo always brings me back – or thrusting forward. To say it was difficult to pick a few photos for prints was an understatement. I don’t print photos – haven’t in a good 3 years so I have an arsenal of photography just stored digitally and when I go back to sort through I get lost in the days we spent planting a garden, walks we would take downtown, beach afternoons and the soft skin of my newborns.
This giveaway is for one canvas print – you get to pick the size – either 8X8 or 8X10 and is open to US residents only. The Easy Canvas Print Giveaway ends August 24th 10pm EST.
I chose photos that weren’t of people and I poured over this decision to a fault. I ordered one for my daughter and one for my son – both of objects/scenes, of something that would remind them. I pin and clip all kinds of art ideas from websites and magazines because the art in a room is what gives it a soul, in my opinion. I like making my own art but I also like hanging photos, not necessarily my own. I like the variety – the unpredictability.
Not that the photos on our walls or desks can’t be of people. I love being reminded of the people in my life, but if I’m going to remember them – I want to remember what it was about them that I love so much.
Like how my son’s belly button is one of my favorite things about him. A little universe of HELLO!
Not that I would ever say no to a photo of his smile
I love photos of processes. Mid baking, the kitchen sink full of clean dishes, chopping fresh veggies. Not the end result, the currency of the transaction.
And the photos of my daughter lost in what makes her happy. The life of the imagination.
