Maybe I'm not invisible after all!

First of all I want to say a great big thank you to everyone for your comments on the last post, and to those of you who chose to email instead. You all made me feel warm and fuzzy and loved!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I love my bloggers!
The very charming Bill Wilcox, with the Chatham Journal came out today to interview me for a story they are doing on the Chatham Artists Studio tour. I can only hope that my mindless prattle made some sort of sense! Just before Bill got here, the Raleigh News and Observer called to see if they could interview me next week and send a photographer. Well, this is fun! I go from being invisible to galleries, to being interviewed by two reporters in one day, haha, take that you bad mannered people, you!
And last of all a great big hug and shout out to my handsome and talented husband for shooting these photos today! My pal Laura had a photographer come out to her studio and shoot some pics of her a while back and I really liked that idea, so Gerry agreed to shoot some photos for me. I love what he did. He is such a pro. He spent so much time lighting things and working with me, it felt like a photo shoot for a magazine or something. I think he did a great job, don't you!? and on his day off too!
I think I will do a new blog header with some of them.
Lots of good things out of the kiln, just need a chance to get their pictures made! I'll get some posted soon..... peace ya'll xoxo

Hollis Engley said...

He's a great shooter. And he's married to a very visible artist. Way to go, both of you.

Your sculptural houses are so beautiful. Great photos, and I love the one at the top with the farmer and mules!!!
Invisible... I don't think so, those galleries are just not the right ones!

Laura Farrow said...

Tracey Broome said...

Thanks ya'll !!!!

Anna said...

It's a roller coaster ain't it!

LOVE the photo you used for your header. Of course I noticed the sweater too. :) But I LOVE the barn. So sweet.

cindy shake said...

Obviously I really like those shots BUT I really LOVE that sweater!! xo

Tracey Broome said...

haha, of course you noticed the yarn! Thanks, I really like the way the photos turned out, I almost always dislike pictures of myself!

Tracey Broome said...

Cindy your note came in just as I was posting to Anna! My reply was to her but it fits with your post too.
I really like the studio sign, don't you? :)

Patricia Griffin said...

Darkness before the dawn! Glad to hear things have turned a corner. Wonderful pics! Wonderful work!

Tracey Broome said...

Thanks Patricia, yeah maybe I spoke too soon in my earlier post :)

Lori Buff said...

Way to go! Now those galleries will be knocking on your door.
Gerry's pictures are great, I love the one looking down from the roof of the studio and the close-up of the little building. So much talent in one family.

Tracey Broome said...

Thanks Lori, I like that one too. you should have seen how it was shot, Gerry very precariously on a ladder!

Peter said...

We're so happy in this household that you've appeared again! Kind thoughts and lots of applause from us down here, P & L

Tracey Broome said...

haha Peter, you are too funny. I should say the same of you, been awhile since you have had a post!

andrea said...

These are utterly fabulous. They capture the essence of you and your work perfectly and give us a real, inspiring, sense, of where all the magic happens.

Love this completely. thanks for sharing. I love it when we come out the other side of a negative with a rip roaring positive!!!

(I especially LOVE the barn you are holding. Truly I do.)

Tracey Broome said...

Andrea, thanks so much, you are very kind :) I owe all the greatness to the photographer!

TropiClay Studio said...

Great pics Tracy! And no, you definitely are NOT invisible! (Just haven't been on lately)

Tracey Broome said...

Hi Robert, thanks! I am certainly feeling less invisible this week!

Jackie Klaumpus said...

They're "sending a photographer out?" Ha!
To my eye, the pics are already done, and any editor that doesn't lead with the "overhead" shot is in error.
Well done by both of you, as usual.

Tracey Broome said...

Jackie, I KNOW! I suggested that they could have Gerry's photos, after all they use them all the time.... we'll see, stiff competition for that photographer though, haha!
