good people you should know

Photographed August 15-16, 2009 on the Oregon coast. Nikon D300, various lenses.

As my final post on my trip to Oregon, I thought I'd introduce you to the lovely women with whom I spent this past weekend.  We are all so different, and yet we all have at least two things in common:

1) We all make our living practicing art -- painting, photography, jewelry design, cuisine or writing; and

2) We all use our websites as a way to celebrate life.

If you don't know their sites yet, here they are, as shown above from left to right, top to bottom:

These are sites I would visit and read even if these women weren't my friends.  These are women who live out loud.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 


And on that note, have a great weekend, everyone.


Song: You are by Lionel Richie.  Because you really haven't lived until you've heard 13 women sing this at the top of their lungs.
