On Saturday, we were going around to garage sales, I love going to those because you just never know what you are going to find, well this time it was a bust so we decided to go to the salvation army, see if there was anything there, I walked in and saw a huge amount of dresses, I am not kidding my heart beats faster when I see dresses, especially wedding dresses, lol.
I saw this one, and instantly fell in love with it, it had a full skirt, lots of details and a very long train, it reminded me of my own wedding dress, so I looked at the size, and price and grabbed it!!
I had plans on creating, this image already, I just didn’t know what dress I was going to wear, but I knew this would be perfect!!
So that evening we packed into the car and drove to the road by our house. I set up my tripod and camera and instructed Rye when to push the shutter down, after all, I needed a car look out and that dress well made it difficult to run around. I had cars honking at me, waving thinking I had just gotten married, it was so much fun!!
Now to why the image is called “A Storm is Coming”
On June 5th it will be 6 years since my Mom passed away, just to say that it feels unreal to me that she has been gone that long, ever since then I have faced so many difficult things, some I didn’t know if I was going to make it out of. This past year has been incredibly hard as well with our youngest being sick and not knowing what was going on with him, there have been MRI’s, tears, and lots of sleepless nights, it has taken a toll on all of us. Even though all these “storms” have come along, and I might have wavered and fallen, I have always gotten back up and stood as strong as I could, with the help of my friends and Ryan I have been able to get up.
That is what this image means for me, standing strong even though everything is coming at you wanting to knock you down!!
I feel like I am finally getting back to me again, back to what I love and it feels really good!
I will be working on a page on here of my art that will be for sale, available as prints and canvases, so make sure you look out for a blog about that!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for all of the support!!
