project hands.

inspired by a sister in law's email to me
and because i want  to start using my real camera again
i am embarking on a project.

if you have hands i want to photograph them.
if you know of hands that crave dirt, paint, bread dough,
 hands that tell stories with their newness or their lines and curves
i would love to see them
and photograph them
and learn from their stories.


  1. Oh! Oh! Oh! This is so exciting! We have fourteen hands over here - and, do you know, at the moment I can't think of a photograph I would rather have than one of yours of Stoic Bear's hands. This is such a fabulous idea...

    (Portia has been looking over my shoulder at these pictures: "I think I want to have an art blog," she says.)

    The top one of these three is my favorite. I am a sucker for fat little hands, plus I really love the color texture of that one.

    1. Portia and I have a bright and shiny art future together I believe:) and yes to a hand photoshoot at your house during the project. I am compiling a list of hand shots I would love to collect:)

  2. I love this idea!! I want one of my hands! And I'm with Finicky Cat, chubby little hands are TOO cute. I am excited for you to take pictures of Stormie's hands. :)

    1. Brand new baby hands soon:) and toes and cheeks and rosebud mouth as well- cant wait!
