Michele Smith, Last time I checked... Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement
I'm excited to open galleries here on imagekind and be able to share my love of beauty and the world with you. Please check back often as I will be adding to my galleries frequently. If you have any comments, suggestions, or requests, please contact me by clicking on the e-mail link at the bottom of this page.
Suggestions regarding my work: I believe that images in sepia or black and white look best on a matte paper. Glossy or Luster is good for most other images and will work fine on sepia or black and white if you don't like the matte look. Now that I have gotten used to the look and feel of the luster papers, I find I prefer it to the more glossy look. It is a personal choice. The images that have a painterly effect look good on canvas but will also look fine on luster or glossy. If you have any special requests about my work, please contact me privately at smsmithcreations (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll be happy to see what I can do. If you see a color image that you would like to have made available in sepia or black/white--or some other treatment, please contact me.
"Know thou that the Kingdom is the real world, and this nether place is only its shadow stretching out. A shadow hath no life of its own; its existence is only a fantasy, and nothing more; it is but images reflected in water, and seeming as pictures to the eye." 'Abdu'l-Baha
