One of my favorite DA artists has passed away and in my opinion the beauty of her art will be missed by anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing her work x-bossie-boots-x.deviantart.co…  I am lucky to have one of her pieces framed on my wall   Jasmena By Bossie-Boots by acurmudgeon  and am happy that I will be able to look at it every day and remember what a wonderful friend Lou has been for the past couple years.  

marcofool.deviantart.com/ mentioned in his journal that Lou loved sunrises so I tried to catch the first sunrise of the year, but here in the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix, AZ) it was actually completely overcast this morning so there was no sunrise to capture.  Since Lou also seemed to enjoy my rose pictures, I decided to take one for her this morning.  This picture is for you Lou.  :heart:   Rose for Lou by acurmudgeon
As of 7am this morning we have reached the 3rd wettest day on record here in the Phoenix area.   The rain is still coming down and they are predicting that today will end up breaking the record.  Most freeways are flooded and closed.  No work today.

Update: as of 8am we have broken the record and today is now the wettest day on record for the Phoenix metro area.

They are saying this storm is a 1000 year event.  We somehow got all the moisture from hurricane Norbert.  Our governor even declared a state of emergency. 
Have a great weekend and happy mother's day to all you beautiful mothers!  :heart:

Loren Blaine In NOLA!

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 16, 2014, 7:49 AM


Loren will be in New Orleans, LA from 4/25-5/3 and will be available for shoots.   She also will be working as a feature entertainer at a few clubs (Penthouse Club and Barely Legal as of now) if any fans are interested in seeing her.

Loren would love to meet some new photographers, models and friends while in NOLA so do not hesitate to shoot her a 'note' at lorenblaine.deviantart.com/ or an email at lorenblainexxx@gmail.com

As I have said before, Loren is an amazing woman with a great attitude, so if you are going to be in New Orleans while she is there I highly recommend you try to book her for a shoot.

Loren and Jim in Arizona (Updated 02/24/14)

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 24, 2014, 12:22 PM


Loren lorenblaine.deviantart.com/ and Jim jimnewsphotos.deviantart.com/ came to Arizona and did some photo shoots between 02/09/14 and 02/11/14.  You can check out the pictures from their Arizona photo shoots including the ones taken at my house at jimnewsphotos.deviantart.com/g… or in my favorites under Loren in AZ acurmudgeon.deviantart.com/fav…

Loren is a very beautiful, friendly and confident model who any photographer would be lucky to work with.  Watching her work was an incredible experience.

Although Jim doesn't consider himself to be a professional photographer he is definitely very professional in the way he conducts himself throughout the entire photo shoot.

This will probably be a one time experience for my wife and I, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and would welcome these two back to our house any time.

If you are a photographer who is looking for a beautiful professional model without any drama check out Loren.  She has her contact information on her DA page lorenblaine.deviantart.com/.  And if you are a model who would like to work with an easy going photographer check out Jim at jimnewsphotos.deviantart.com/.

I finally got my bike back... mostly. Still need a windshield and the correct locks for my saddlebags, but at least it is in my garage now and I can ride it.
Our good friend Shelley is having a very rough time in her battle against cancer and she could use all the support she can get.  For those of you who believe in prayer, please pray for her.  Shelley is a beautiful, caring and creative person/artist.  Stop by and check out her amazing art at orchid22.deviantart.com/.
