A Passover & Easter Note of Love

Friends, visitors and collectors with interest in my art photography and literary content, a note of request that you please leave a message regarding any work that you see here at J'adore or elsewhere on the other special effects blogs, Joyce Dade Photography and Jade-Mixed. 

I would love it of course if you would also add me as a follow on the tab located to your right and I hope that does not sound pushy, just a reminder. 

I also want to remind visitors that I can be reached on Twitter and Facebook as well.  My twitter tweets are private but, please send a request and I will contact you immediately that I have received your request.

The reason for private tweets is primarily because that reduces the content that I will need to go through and limiting my followers, organizations (and trends) will take less time on a daily basis and not because I don't like this one or that one who would like to follow me, it's just simply easier for me to do the research and introduce myself without being completely overwhelmed by a large number of followers.  I don't think that celebs with hundreds of thousands of followers really go through their followers.  I am sure they don't but, I want to be able to have a closer relationship with my friends on Twitter and here on J'dore so please, let me know who you are and what you think about the photographics and or commentary I have made.  I would love to know and I will follow up with you. 

As you may know from other commentary I have posted here or elsewhere, I am in the process of developing collectors for my fine art photography and oil paintings.  I am an independent artist by circumstance and it falls on me to do the research, make the contacts and promote my work without shame online and in my blogs as well as across the blogosphere.  If you see what you like, contact me and purchase a print for your home or office.  A woman can't live by art photography alone can she?   

I would love for you to be a collector of my photography.  I will be securing a PayPal or other shopping vehicle for my other photography sites in the upcoming days but, in the meantime, you can contact me regarding sizes and pricing if you are interested in a purchase.  Every image here is available of course and what you see here is low resolution for a variety of reasons and small in size.  Special effects look wonderful in full size.  It is distinctive art photography. 

My note of love and reminder? 
A.  Drop me a line. 
     Write a commentary. 
B.  See what you like?
C.  Contact me and order a copy. 

Have a wonderful Passover and or Easter holiday, dear visitor and I hope to hear from you soon!

No Wind Off the Ocean for me Today

I missed the wind off the ocean today.  Confidentially speaking although I had a wonderful day, I'm guilty for not having gone to the Luna Park and Cyclone opening today in Coney Island as I had wanted to.  I changed my mind and spent the day in the park with my pitbull taking pictures.  We had a wonderful time and I have a wonderful new series of designer dog photographics of my dog but, I missed Marty Makowitz and the fun festivities in the rain at Coney Island.  :(

Anyway, it's over now and nothing can be done.  It's a little dreary to be at the rides when the weather is less than sunny, most people stay away and it's colder on the Island so, I bargained to stay closer to home and also to miss the first opportunity day to see the Pablo Picasso, Marie Therese show at the Gagosian Gallery which will also have to wait until next week.

Be that as it may, I came home to find that I had lots of "robot" errors on my blogs and had to undo all the tag insertions or at least I thought I had to which has taken a lot of time and energy.  Most of it is done now, I only hope I did the right thing and that it wasn't unnecessary to delete them.  If the "spiders" will not crawl your blog is your blog cloaked and subsequently invisible?  I could not entirely be sure there are so many cross references to go through. 

Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for the opportunity to have these sites for free.  Thank you Blogger!

The Old Astroland, Twilight of an Amusement Park Series

The Early Bird Gets It Done Sooner!

With springtime here now there is no excuse, I have to remind myself of that (the earlier I rise the more to life there is to accomplish, it's just that simple). 

The blogging, twittering life, photography opportunities (not to mention spring cleaning that continues to be pushed to the back burner because of the aforementioned here) and perhaps shameless self promotion must be done by the blogger, artist, photographer and or housekeeper, in my case, singlehandedly.  Cinderella or no Cinderella, just get it done.  No excuses now Joyce, you must get it done. 

As it is, I wanted to see the Gagosian Gallery, Marie Therese exhibition that promises to be overwhelming, I am sure.  Why can't I go today as I had planned?  There's too much to do and the weather is awful.  Am I making excuses?  I'm being partly honest and partly, I'm making excuses.  I will be seeing this exhibition come hell or high water but, it will probably have to wait until next week. 

I'm sure Senor Picasso will have to wait although, I don't want to wait.  I'd love to hop the train and get up there but, tomorrow I will be time tripping down to Coney Island for the photo opportunity there with the open of, Luna Park!

Yes, Luna Park opens tomorrow and with it the Cyclone ride for the season.  There will be events to mark the opening and I just can't miss it, not even for Picasso (I guess).  I hate to be that frank about it but there it is.  I only hope it's not packed to the gills whenever I am able to get it together to visit the Gagosian gallery.  :)

You Know How it is. I Adore You.

Friends and other adorable visitors, thank you for your visits to J'adore and to my other blogs on Blogger

Please remember to click around, don't be shy about posting commentary and feedback and, consider purchasing photographic enlargements of what you see here if you see what you like.  (PayPal will soon be available, in the meantime, contact me regarding any interest you may have)

What you see here and at my other photographic blog spots are samples of ongoing photographic series that have been underway for some time and as mentioned elsewhere, they exist in special effects:  Haze, blur, fuzz, sand, lace etc. 

I say this as a reminder and because, I adore you and want you to enjoy your visits with me at J'adore and elsewhere.

Summer Boardwalk & Fireworks Series, 2010

Portrait of an Artist with Orange Light Sculpture

"Just Get It Done"

A reminder to visitors is that photographic print enlargements are available of the special effects photography on this site. 

Blogging here is my way of introducing my digital art photography to others and with the option to purchase quality prints for home and or office. 

Online business is time consuming for independent artists and photographers who don't have agents and or assistants who must handle the responsibilities of blogs, websites, uploads, publishing research, social media, Twitter and all the rest of it.  

But like Andy Warhol said some time ago, "...Just get it done."

Soccer Players in Blur, from the Sports 2011 Photography Series

Soccer Players in Action

Neo-Dynamism of Three Soccer Players

Soccer Players in Blur, from the Sports 2011 Photography Series

Sports in blur?  I'm onto soccer perhaps for the first time with this spanking new sports series of soccer players and Aikedo players.  It is occupying my time now and although I regret not doing the necessary  spring cleaning that does so need to be done, I must develop this sports series and perhaps for publication. 

Visitors please do return when you have time to see this exciting and unusual portfolio develop over time, summer will be here soon and there should follow a lifeguard series in blur as well.

A Woman Can't Live By Photography Alone

A Woman Cannot Live By Twitter & Facebook Alone

It is so true that a woman cannot live by words alone.  For this woman, there needs to be photography and songs and friendships and love.  As it is, Twitter and Facebook and other social media take up up so much time, I find I have to discipline myself to not overspend time and it is difficult.  I love my friends.  Facebook friends share so much, the pleasures of the past, music and literature and all the wonderful things they offer up like gifts every day.  It's difficult but a woman must pull herself away from overdoing it with the "gifts" of Twitter and Facebook.  The party has to end some time or other and with springtime here, it looks like it will have to be now. 

Dare I mention spring cleaning?  I don't want to mention it.  I don't want to think about it but it must get done by no one other than me.  So as it is, it's goodbye to social media and my beloved friends there for the duration until I can get something meaningful done.  I'm not whining, just saying. 

How many projects can one person handle?  I don't know know the exact number but I know one thing; I'm pushing the boundaries for myself as much as possible to make up for lost time (which can't be made up for) and to just get it done.  But "just get it done" is not on the creative tip now it's on the mundane so, I declare with this statement that a woman cannot live by the joy and pleasures of social media alone.  Spring cleaning must be done!  I go to it reluctantly you can be sure of that but go to it I must because I can't hire someone else to do it otherwise, I would. :((

I Missed Destry's Art Reception :(

Just a follow up note, I missed my friend's solo art opening this past weekend and I was looking forward to meeting him in person after many conversations on Facebook.  I was looking forward to seeing his work up close and personal and posting images here but, I was unable to attend for the opening.

Hopefully, I will be allowed to take some pictures when I do attend before the show is over and at that time I will post them here for visitors to enjoy.

Destry Sparks Shows in New York City 2011

I'm blogging this early Friday evening but the event art party takes place tomorrow.  I've waited a long time to meet my friend, Destry Sparks who will be in solo exhibition for the first time in New York City. 

I will have to stop it with Twitter for a while to attend but I am looking forward to meeting him and seeing his burlap paintings and mixed media pieces. 

There will be more including photographics at this site in the next few days.
