We went to pick up our CSA (community supported agriculture) share at the Farmer’s Market and we noticed that the flower stall was filled with a different kind of beauty.  As the weather was cooling down the flower merchant had packed up and a photographer had move into the spot.  We were drawn to her stunning pictures of our world and of things smaller.

We recognized the beach where we had visited for our honeymoon and returned just this summer to celebrate our 35th anniversary.   My partner purchased one of the prints as he wants to paint it for his Thanksgiving painting days.  We went back to purchase a card of the picture for a family in grief.

I asked Linda if I could show case her beautiful work as a Thanksgiving gift of beauty to my blog readers and she said yes!

In her own words:

Linda Schwerzler was born in 1960, the second child of four children.  She grew up in Iowa and loved spending time in the woods.  She met and married Kirk Schwerzler and moved to Western Washington in 1991.  She and Kirk have three beautiful girls and a home snuggled in the woods of the Great Northwest.

Linda is the author to all her verses, registered with the Copyright Office at the Library of Congress.  She was a professional portrait photographer for over five years.  Her love of nature and photography are combined in this print.

“I received my first camera when I was nine years old.  I’ve loved the art of photography ever since.  I hope you feel the same thrill viewing this print as I did when I first printed it.”
