Thank you to everyone that has sent me a snapshot… I have many more to post, so keep coming back for these great snapshots of “elsewhere” from artists!

If you’d like to send me your own snapshot of elsewhere, visit my original post with all of the details.

 

Tracy Helgeson – Upstate New York

Visit Tracy’s blog

Like this snowy view from her studio, Tracy’s paintings are great views of elsewhere to me.  Her view is so calm and still.  Tracy writes that this view shows “the apple tree in the backyard with birds busy at the feeder… the tiny splash of yellow in the trees is our beehive”.

Diana Botkin – North Idaho

Here’s the view out Diana’s door several weeks ago when she had tons of snow.  Diana writes that she is thankful her husband takes care of plowing and shoveling the snow, “if it was just me up here at the edge of the earth, I wouldn’tbe able to deal with it”.

Kathy Beekman – Bailey, Colorado

Visit Kathy’s website

I’ve visited Kathy’s studio in the foothills southwest of Denver several times – she has a great creative space!  Looks like the snow is piling up in this view!  Be sure to visit her website to see her pastel paintings!

Jill Zaheer – New York, New York

Wow!  Gotta love this view from Jill’s space.  Jill writes that she is “blessed to be able to see the most gorgeous sun rises and sunsets everyday from a corner apartment on the 26th floor… with views of the palisades in New Jersey, Long Island and New York City.

    More beautiful views! Snow is definitely a theme and always beuatifully inspiring. And Jill’s view is grand and vast!

    David, just love your series of studio views. I think it would make one super work of art – in a huge collaboration of everyone’s magical views- all put together in beautiful squares. Or wouldn’t it be wonderful if each studio picture could be put on a window shade and you just pull down the view of your choice. You could have “screen for a day”. Thanks for sharing these.
