The How-To and Importance of Photographing Scanning Digitizing Your Original Art


Last month our family had a horrible house fire.  Everyone is safe, but the house and all of its contents (including...sadly...two beloved family pets) were lost.  

Thank you to everyone who sent kind words, moral support, prayers and donations!

I haven't mentioned this before today because now that I have seen the traumatic aftermath of a fire, I know first hand that although it is extremely disappointing to have your entire life go up in smoke (keepsakes, family photos etc) - things/stuff can be replaced!  

What I didn't tell anyone was that inside that house was a number of my original works of art.  All gone.  Who knows what their future value might have been.  Beyond the smart move of digitizing your works for licensing or fine art / limited edition prints etc. - it is vital that you digitize them in case, God forbid, they are lost forever through theft, in a fire, flood or other natural disaster.  

Being a Photographer at heart, I naturally wanted to photograph my original works of art.  I am pretty certain that every piece that was hanging or being stored in that house was documented.  Thankfully!

So Dear Artist Friends,
If you have original art do not wait or procrastinate.  Haul it all out and get it done!

This video is an excellent tutorial.  If you have smaller works on paper they can be scanned.

Peace Love Create Art

8 reasons you should be using Vetiver


When it’s time to unwind after a long day, or if you need to buckle down for a project in a relaxing environment, look no further than Vetiver essential oil. Vetiver oil provides a sweet, woody aroma that can be applied topically or diffused to help create warm, welcoming spaces. The uses of Vetiver oil are numerous, from providing the perfect grounding scent for a decompressing massage to creating the ideal fragrance for soaps and perfumes. Find out more about the vetiver plant, as well as some key Vetiver oil benefits, and if you decide you need to give yourself a mid-blog Vetiver oil hand massage, we’ll understand.

1. From the earth

The vetiver plant is a perennial grass native to tropical regions in Asia. Vetiver is a fragrant grass with long stems and flowers, but Vetiver essential oil is derived from the root of the plant. Vetiver roots can grow 7–10 feet long, and their deep, tangled webs help make the plant tolerant against drought and protect against soil erosion.

2. Into the bottle

Vetiver oil is steam distilled from the root of the vetiver plant. It produces a warm, woodsy scent that’s slightly sweet and earthy.

3. For men

The woody, earthy scent has been used for its fragrance for centuries, and a popular use of Vetiver is adding a warm aroma to men’s soaps and colognes. You can create a personalized scent by adding Vetiver essential oil as a base note for a masculine DIY perfume.

4. Study scent

Let Vetiver’s complex and uplifting aroma help calm your mind so you can focus on the tasks that require the utmost attention. Perfect for study, difficult work tasks, or even curling up with a long novel, Vetiver essential oil’s fragrance creates a relaxing atmosphere where distractions lose their sway.

5. Thicker than Thieves®

Vetiver oil is known for its viscosity. Incredibly thick, it can sometimes be slow to flow from the bottle, but patience is a virtue, and there’s nothing wrong with your oil! Because Vetiver essential oil is so thick, we recommend adding it to a carrier oil before you put it in your diffuser.

6. In the tub

Relax from head to toe with a warm bath, aided by the calming aroma of 15–20 drops of Vetiver oil added to your evening soak. If you want to dim the lights and hit play on your favorite chill-out tunes, that’s between you and the Vetiver.

7. On your body

Combine a few drops of Vetiver essential oil with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for use in massage. All those unused “free foot rub” coupons that your significant other gave you last Valentine’s Day? You won’t regret putting them to use in an experience that can be deeply calming and moisturizing.

8. At home

Create a blend for your family that is warm and relaxing. Use 3 drops of Vetiver essential oil, 5 drops of Lavender, and 2 drops of Ylang Ylang in your diffuser to set the stage for nights in playing board games, reading, or just getting through homework and chores in a calmer atmosphere.
