“The object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.” ~Robert Henri

 

I wish everyone a safe and happy Labour Day weekend and I can’t wait to see the magic that all of you create in these last few moments of summer.

FREELENSED FRIDAYS : August 13th Thru August 20th

It is with a heavy heart that I have to let everyone know that this is my final week with The Freelensed.

I have absolutely loved my time with this amazing group of talented artists

and seeing all the incredible contributions from all our followers each week!

For me, it just came down to not enough hours in the day to fulfill all my commitments. 

In closing, I simply want to say thank you! Thank you for embracing me, this group

and this gorgeous technique that is so dear to my heart! 

All my love, 

Paige Xo

FREELENSED FRIDAYS: August 6th thru August 12th

Today is my last day of judging for this incredible page, and so I took the liberty to do a major overshare. In the months since we started this page every time I have had to judge I toil and moan and groan that I have to get the images down to a reasonable amount. Well, get ready for a long post, I still had many more that I would have loved to include, but you would have all been here all day, lol. I am letting go of my role as admin on The Freelensed so that I can take this next year to really focus on my daughter and my health. But, I’ll still be around as much as possible, soaking in all the incredible work that you all share, and now I can share from time to time too!

Freelensing completely filled a void in me. The unpredictability, the softness, the blur, the color, the mood, the depth, all drew me in, and I just had to learn to do it. For those of you just starting out, don’t stop. If you love it, and feel that desire to learn it, succumb to it. Be patient and kind to yourself as you explore this technique, it is just everything.

All my love,

Kim

FREELENSED FRIDAYS: July 30th thru August 5th

Taking in the last bit of summer. I know we all are. And making images so our memories will remember the details we so quickly forget. From garden harvests to the anticipation of new life and bare feet on the warm summer ground, it was another week full of beautiful images. Thank you for continuing to share and inspire the freelensing community!

The Freelensed Monthly Edition: Aug 2014

I am sitting on the back porch of a beloved mountain home. Thunder is humming in the distance as I watch dark blue clouds tumble across the mountains that frame my view. Yesterday I traveled a thousand miles; driving with my three boys, from beach to desert, to high plains, to foothills. We crossed dry swatches of land, forgotten reservations, Navajo Nations. We came into these San Juan mountains from the back door. I feel so lucky. So at peace.

Though my great grandfather was an accomplished photographer in his day, it does nothing to feed my overly critical brain. Perhaps that’s why I love freelensing so much: that I came into it from the backdoor.

The right and the wrong just don’t exist here.

That, here in the arc of its blurred images I find the back door to my soul: a place where I perch my heart in my dreams.  As summer draws in its last heated gasps of summer, I know I remember things better this way, the blurred images of my memory, the dance between the dark and the day, and the hush of the sky before the storm.

FREELENSED FRIDAYS: July 23rd thru July 30

these were a sweet reminder of the peaceful bits and warmth of this season and of this quote….

‘ wherever you are, be all there.’ —jim elliot

it’s easy to get caught up. but slow down, breathe, allow the fleeting moments to become more than that, allow yourself to just be. the beautiful images you all shared this past week were perfect. it was wonderful to be given the opportunity to experience all the beautiful shares to the page. i do hope that you will all continue to share your art – feel free to grab the feature button to use on your own blog too!
