    Just spent some time on the Verve Gallery website – her work is absolutely stunning. So beautiful and powerful, while restrained. Thanks for the introduction.

    Wow. I am so glad you featured her Miss LPC, she has an amazing eye. Magnolia III here and Heart of a Man on the verve site have to be two of my favorites, but there isn’t one I wouldn’t love to have, not a one, they are all stunning.

    Thank you for sharing her with us,

    Her work is hauntingly beautiful…and the black and white photography feels so rich. These would elevate and add interest…you might be fortunate enough to have one hanging in your home!
    Thank you for the introduction to her work.

    So, so, so gorgeous and moving. I can’t believe they are photos.

    I clicked on the lead image – thank you for preparing me. Haunting.

    These pictures just draw you into their depths. So much to fathom there on so many levels – and the mystery still remains. Thank you for presenting them here. I also sincerely hope that donations via sales will come in generously.

    Thank you so much for this post. I had only just finished reading a blog post that really taxed the outside limits of my ability to control my temper, advertising a service so ridiculous, vapid, shallow, and out of the realm of everything for which that blogger purports to advocate that I was tempted to shoot her an angry WTF of a comment. But I decided, since I aspire to high- WASP manners, to take a breath and distance myself from the situation, so I came over to your blog. And look: you’ve advocated for beauty, for essential humanity, for the loveliness of nature, and for human compassion. And I feel much better now.

    And Gitta’s work is stunning.

    The magnolia is exquisite. I have just saved it as my screensaver.

    I think decorating around your favorite art is the only way to go.

    These are gorgeous Lisa! I love the nude, the way her legs are positioned in the tulle–just beautiful! And love the flower too! Would love to see more! How wonderful that you’re related! I enjoyed seeing these!

    I just browsed through her portfolio on her site and was just so inspired. My favorite series of hers are the Imagine Then series and her Documentary shots. I would be so happy if the photos I take are even a quarter as good as hers.

    Stunning work. I particularly am drawn to the Imagining Then series for it’s collage feel.

    Her nudes are gorgeous!!! I wish I had money to spend on art other than prints. :(
