Fruity Artist / Photographer M.I.A.

My friend and college classmate, Carmella Messina, has just started a a blog called Persona
She said she came up with the name because of the many hats she wears. Believe me, I can relate. These days, I find I am a house keeper, nurse, wife, photographer, artist and equestrian; not necessarily in that order.

For the past two weeks, in addition to my nursing duties, I have been shooting fruits and vegetables to upload to iStockPhoto. When I get going on a project, I tend to get obsessed, that I will admit.

I think I've spent over $250. on produce so far. Thank goodness for my walk-in, screened-in porch fridge

This is one of the images that has already been accepted and added to my iStockPhoto Online Portfolio.  I just had a piece of one and it was delicious!

These days, my studio looks more like a farm market and smells like citrus and garlic.

The deer and horses here aren't complaining either. Nothing is going to waste. As I shoot and discard, I think the critters here at The Sandarosa are truly enjoying the abundant treats and vast variety of fruits and vegetables in their daily diet. . . They just don't realize how spoiled they really are.


  1. Thanks for the blog mention Sandy.
    I think our ability to wear many hats is what keeps life interesting. Being an artist is not a career you ever really retire from. You just move into other aspects of creativity. Your photography is lovely and you're obsessive because you care and it shows.

  2. Sandy, I am flabbergasted and gob-smacked!! That is quite a photo set-up you have for your fruit and veggie ingenues. And I am so happy to hear the animals are reaping some of the benefits!

  3. Fabulous photos! I bet those animals are enjoying the fruit in the winter:)
