{Inspiration} Distressed Jewell

today i would like to share an *incredible* artist with you...

i'm not sure i can even describe to you how in awe i am of her and her photography...

jewell is creator and owner of distressed textures; not only did the beauty of her textures capture me but her simple statement, " i have a thing for cows. it is common for me to stop on the side of the road, watch them, and converse with them."

do i need to explain or say anymore?...

my words cannot do justice to the beauty of this woman's soul or to the incredible depth of which her work inspires...

i will let you be transported along another time with just these few glimpses...

i have spent countless hours lost within her creations...*thank you* jewell for sharing your gifts, beauty, and raw talent....

i hope today, dear readers, you have been able to find a place of stillness and beauty somewhere within the midst of the noise and uncertain...

My heart skipped a beat immediately upon seeing these images! What beautiful, absolutely magical pieces of art!
By the way...I too converse with cows ~ have always talked with them - something I have done since growing up on my grandparents farm. :-)
Thank you so much for introducing her ~ Have a wonderful evening Kristin! Rebecca

These photos are just amazing. I love photos of old barns and shacks. I took a few pictures this weekend while in Montana. Beautifu work.

Wow I love the texture, it makes the picture seem like a lovely painting! Of course I am partial to old, abandoned buildings so the photos caught my heart immediately. Just beautiful Jewell! Thanks for sharing Kristin.

OH my! I absolutely love these! Thanks for sharing! Now, because I'm so slow when it comes to computer stuff---is there a way I can contact her and buy prints of this stuff? I would also love it if you had any other ideas...paintings or whatever...that I could buy prints of. I love the look of anything sort of old fashioned 'farm.' If this makes sense....:) I just don't know how to navigate this world wide web!

Deana Marie said...

Breath taking! Is there a way to buy her work, does she sell prints anywhere?

Thanks so much for sharing!

kpaints said...

It takes my breath away! Just beautiful, does she have a website or just the face book.

Kristin said...

hey girls~
if you are interested in buying some of her prints you can contact her through flickr mail...i'm thinking one will be hanging on my wall soon...just trying to decide which one to pick?!? ;0)
she only has the website where she sells her textures but will let you know if she has a blog...

SO glad you enjoyed her art as much as me!

Beautiful pictures, they are luminous and serene. I'm going to check out her website. Thanks for this post, Kristin!

There is a moment in time that pauses, stops and goes backwards, a frozen reflection captured in celluloid.

Buildings from times past are among my favorite subjects and she has done great work with them.

Tell her great work.

Hello dear friend, I hope that you are well and spreading your wings. These are gorgeous and the fireflys piece is beautiful, I can see how you would get lost in them.
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mothers day!
