VALENTINE'S DAY is the day to express special thoughts of love and appreciation. Today, tomorrow, the next day and everyday are the days to give love and open your heart to receive love.

What, you might say - you have no lover to embrace! Make Valentine's Day, the day for expressing LOVE....LOVE for one another: your friends, old and young, your mom, your dad, your brothers or sisters, your kids, the kids down the street and the kids across town, your grandmother and step mother, grandfather and step father, the checker at the grocery store, your teacher, your boss, your friends that moved across the ocean, your neighbor who voted for the "other guy",and the list goes on.

Oh, there are so many ways to express loving thoughts and I just happen to have a great suggestion to add to your list! Fill ones ears with music, their hearts with loving words and images of..................... E-MotionCards.

You may click on each of the images here to see the e-card of which many are FREE to send.
Keep in mind with the postcards you have the opportunity to chose the music, greeting and add a personal message. Enjoy. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO YOU!

RED in Design - RED in February

How about RED!  Well, it is February and RED is everywhere in the retail stores on Main Street or online cyber stores to create the spirit of Valentine gift giving.  To foster the spirit I will share my creative endeavors in various mediums using the color RED. Above, The RED Violin is a photograph used as stock photography in several publications and has come to life in an E-MotionCard - The Violin.

Window Display - The top RED pepper spinning says "Do You Want"...... with the remaining spinning peppers plus peppers on the floor holding choices of:  Denial - Bliss - Lies - Truth -  Reality - Love - RED Peppers or Byblos (the designer of featured clothing).  I was playful in spirit with this window installation and at the same time hoping it would be somewhat thought provoking.

The RED Shoes - Photograph used as Stock Image.  For quite some time I got lost in the world of photographing small objects.  Was a delightful world of discovery as you could only guess what the finished print would reveal.  Of course this was in the day of the film cameras and One Hour Photo.  

As a set decorator for major ad campaigns I had a huge range of assignments.  This RED tent was one of my favorite challenges.  The shoot was on a dry lake bed in California for several days with lots of props.  I was responsible for renting a full size circus trapeze set, gigantic kites, and miscellaneous props with the most exciting assignment of designing a RED satin tent that could change shape for the various shots. 

The RED Chair is another small world photograph used as a stock image in a variety of publications.  

Baby Guess - 0 to 14-  store windows were great fun to conceptualize and install.  Here I chose the theme of a 50's like ice cream parlor for the kids.  This corner is just a very small area in a large window display with lots of kids and babies having fun or taking their job very seriously as this little girl is!  
RED accents in the clothing and the set brought the scene to life.

Ah, and this is a new motion Valentine e-card I just designed for E-MotionCards using figures from vintage postcards,  romantic piano music, love and the color
RED. Check it out!  Magical Love

Last image in my RED story is this majestic RED Dalhia, a photograph I took as a fine art print. It has found it's way into an E-MotionCard also.  The RED Flower.
