Guam Sunsets are the Best!

On my way home from visiting with a friend, I decided at the last second to pull over to wait and catch the sunset. Found a lovely lone flower on the beach too. Turned out to be a beautiful mini adventure. Glad I followed that spontaneous urge.

A Portrait Painting Experiment ~ Jolynn Redmond

So as I have mentioned before, fine art portrait painting and other technical art are not my expertise or preference. However, I have been challenging myself to take on more and try to improve in this area. I had a request for a painting based on a photo taken by Frank Henshaw of the lovely …

A Day in the Life of an Artist- Capture the Moment Photography

I’m not sure how to begin writing this special post, so I’ll just start by saying exactly that. If you look back at many journal entries of mine, they often begin with “I’m not sure what to write, but…” and it is because I have so much to say that I don’t know where to …

Great Tides of Change: Poem by a Friend

(Photo thanks to John Barber, an awesome local photographer here on Guam) This poem was written by a friend during our last Creative Session. It didn’t have a title (yet?) but it reflects the changes that life brings, big and small, of all kinds of variety. It really spoke to me, and maybe it will …

Painting & Self Portraits Day

I love photography just about as much as I love painting. Over the years, I’ve gotten way more comfortable with being in photos and also taking self-portraits, especially as I’ve had to do so for my website and other projects requiring a photo and artist bio.
