  1. Terra – I finally got up to Janine’s to look at your work. I was SO IMPRESSED. The images, composition and color treatment are wonderful. There is a stark abstracted warmth to the work – and I love them. Congratulations and all the best with the rest of your project.

  3. I second what Dave said about the great photo at Peavey Plaza at Janine’s! I’ve been carrying that image around now in my head for the last couple weeks — I enjoy mulling it again in my mind’s eye.

  4. I went to Janine’s Coffeehouse today and enjoyed your images immensely. As an avid amateur, I especially liked your treatment of the fountain at Peavey Plaza. It is one of my favorite subjects.

    Your work is amazing. Dave.

  5. Terra,
    I am fascinated with your subject material. Small things become so beautiful.
    I will sign up for the blog emails.
