In case you haven't heard, Doug and I are very honored to be selected for an exhibition of our work at the Emporium during the month of February! Sponsored by the Arts and CuIture Alliance of Greater Knoxville, the show is certainly the most nerve wracking thing I've ever done. I am pairing up with another Knoxville photographer, Aaron Campbell, and presenting "Farms, Fields, Forests, and Falls," a compilation of approximately fifty photographic images encompassing both local and distant locations.

It's both exciting and scary for me, but I just finished choosing the show this morning, so at last I have my images on order. Now the master framer has his work cut out for him!

Doug and I are hoping that many of our friends will be able to attend our opening night on Friday, February 3rd. I know it will help calm my nerves to see familiar faces!

Our images look great in barn wood, but barn wood is rotted, full of nails and hard to manage. Solution! We came up with a concoction of boiled oak leaves, tea bags, vinegar, a touch of gray paint and rusty steel wool to age the new fresh wood we like in a few days, then used an old saw blade with a single bent tooth to simulate blade marks. Hope you agree that the end result looks great. Many of our images would be beautiful framed this way. Contact us to order you own custom piece! - Doug. (P.S. What you see is a test setup - final work will have nicely glued corners and proper backer.) ... See MoreSee Less

The snow on the branches is amazing !

Beautiful!

Stunning!

FYI...

If you were planning to attend the crafters/artists event at the Smoky Mountains Heritage Center in Townsend, it has been cancelled due to heavy rains over the past couple of days.

So Doug and I will both be at Grit & Grace Market in Cleveland today. Hope to see you there!

Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Doug and I have another HUGE weekend coming up with two special Christmas events:

Doug will be in Townsend at the Smoky Mountains Heritage Center for their annual artists/crafters fair this Saturday from 10-4. We've heard really good things about the event, although it'll be our first year to participate. Consider planning a Saturday trip to Cades Cove and stopping by on your way. It will be the perfect opportunity to buy unique gift items.

My location for Saturday is Grit & Grace Market in Cleveland where our three day Christmas Open House will be in full swing! Open from 10-6, Saturday has been designated as Family Day, and Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand, in addition to refreshments and lots of sales. Attendees will also have a chance to win door prizes that have been donated by shoppe owners. You don't want to miss out, because there are some incredible gift packages that you are eligible to win, just by stopping by and registering.

Painted Tree Boutiques will also be having a Christmas Open House all day Saturday. Our gallery there is restocked and refreshed with new work, including our popular Christmas images (both captured in London), pictured below.

I love my picture and can't wait to hang it above our bed again for Christmas!

Good morning! Yesterday we spent some time at Painted Tree Boutiques adding and refreshing our gallery there. Three items for you to keep in mind:

1. We added our deluxe, boxed sets of Monet's Garden cards in glossy and linen editions. If you're looking for a classy gift for that special friend or loved one, check them out. We couldn't be happier with the final result! Ten watercolor style, fine art photography cards, handcrafted and printed on top quality paper, presented nicely in a clear box. Priced at $32.50.

2. Will the VOLS best Georgia today? We're counting on it! One of our most popular canvas images of Neyland Stadium has been added to the Knoxville gallery. You really need to stop by and see this one in person before it heads home with someone else. Pictured below, the large size framed canvas would be a great addition to your den or game room.

3. Some of the fall images have already found new homes this week as customers have taken advantage of the 30% off opportunity, but there are still some great ones remaining. "Always Home for Fall" (pictured below) just might be waiting for you. 🙂

Have a fabulous weekend. GO VOLS, BEAT GEORGIA!

November update...

Things continue to be busy for us heading further into the holiday season! It's a good busy, though, as we regularly replenish notecards, greeting cards, and calendars in both galleries while ramping up our online Etsy store for the season.

If you're a new follower of Photo Journey and missed out on our 2023 calendars, there are still some available in both versions. The wall calendars measure 12 X 18 and are the perfect size to hang in your kitchen or office.

"Cades Cove 2023" features photography from all year round taken in the Cove, and "Inspiration 2023: Mount Up With Wings" showcases beautiful birds, with a special scripture verse for each month. You really can't go wrong with either one.

I encourage you to contact me NOW or stop by one of the galleries this weekend to pick up your calendar. Priced at $30. Remember that in your calendar you receive 12 frameable 9 X 12 photos. Year after year, I hear from customers who have chosen some of their calendar photos for framing. Check out the images of the calendars below! We'd love to get one in the mail to you if you don't live close enough to visit our local galleries.

We have two festivals this month in addition to Christmas Open House events at both stores, so I'm praying for energy and stamina!

I'm also working hard to finalize things for my first photography exhibition that will be here before we know it. February 3rd is the opening night for a month long show featuring 20-25 pieces of my work at the Emporium in Knoxville. My emotions are all over the map on the situation. While I know that it's an honor to be selected, I am highly anxious about it. More details on this in the weeks to come.

As we look forward to the next several weeks and focus our thoughts on our blessings and the miracle of Christmas, it is our goal to spend more time enjoying home and family and reflecting on the goodness and mercies of God in our life. Each of you is a blessing to us...

We love doing this journey with you!

Just finished our first printing of the "Monet's Gardens" cards, and they are REALLY GORGEOUS! It's hard for me to decide which one I like best, the linen finish or the glossy. 🙂

These sets are the perfect gift for that friend who appreciates the finer things in life! All images were taken at Monet's home in Giverny, France and each card conveys that signature look of a Monet watercolor.

Sets of ten 5 X 7 cards available in two fine art paper finishes. We had a really hard time deciding on the images that would make the final cut, but finally came up with the ten pictured below. Reserve your boxed set today as quantities will be limited. Please designate your preference of linen or glossy.

Priced at $32.50. Shipping available!

Coming soon! Just in time for gift season, we are excited to announce that there's something brand new coming to Photo Journey. "Monet's Gardens," an exclusive, boxed set of ten 5 X 7 cards, will be available soon.

Two fine art paper options give customers a choice of glossy or linen finishes. The linen has a great feel in your hand, with a textured finish that shows wonderful detail and depth in each image, while the glossy option shouts color and luminosity, making it the perfect showcase for the vivid hues and watercolor effect of the gardens.

The cards will sell for $32.50 in both gallery locations, and can be ordered on Etsy by November 15th. We are now taking preorders, so if you would like to reserve a box, please leave a comment below or contact me through private message. Fifty boxes of the cards will be the limit for this first printing. If you're a Monet fan, you may want to go ahead and reserve your box soon. Please indicate your preference of linen or glossy finish and number of boxes desired.

All photographs were taken at Monet's Gardens in Giverny, France and include both spring and fall selections.

(As always, we are happy to ship a box to your home, if you aren't local and are unable stop by the galleries!)

I love the beautiful colors of Autumn! 🍁 🍂🍁

Breathtaking!

Although we were running a little low on energy, it was a good experience for us at both venues this past weekend! We sold two large, framed canvases and LOTS of notecards and calendars.
Doug and I are so happy to be back home in Tennessee in time to soak in some of this beautiful fall season. I think there's no better place to be during my favorite time of year than right here.

The river cruise concluded our 2022 travel season, and we won't be leaving again until January. We are still in the process of planning and finalizing options for next year, and will let you know soon where 2023 will take us.

We will be taking Christmas orders through October 31st, so if you have something in mind, please contact me soon. Calendars and notecards are stocked in both galleries and are also available through our Etsy store. I am still going through images from Iceland and France and loading them on the website regularly, so check in there from time to time and take a look!

A customer recently contacted us requesting custom Christmas cards in quantity, so that is an option for anyone else who may be interested. We're offering 5 X 7 cards with your choice of linen or glossy finish paper at varying price points. Contact me if you're interested.

Photo Journey is now only 10 followers away from reaching the 1000 milestone! If you're comfortable doing so, please invite someone to join you in following this page.

Back in the game...

These days Doug and I are not letting any grass grow under our feet, as the old expression goes. Just returning home last night, we are spending today preparing for a HUGE WEEKEND where Photo Journey will be participating in two separate venues.

We were honored to be recruited and accepted in the Mountain Makins Festival held the third weekend of October each year. Mountain Makins is an Appalachian Folk Life Festival celebrating the unique culture of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Known for high quality crafts and artisans, the festival features a juried arts & crafts fair, top regional musical talent, storytellers, authors, craft demonstrations, and children's activities. All activities take place at historic Rose Center in Morristown, Tennessee.

There is a special ticketed preview evening ($10) tomorrow night for those who want to come and enjoy some great food and get the first look at the arts and crafts items before the event opens to the general public. Preview hours are 6:30-9:00, and items will be for sale during this special event.

Then on Saturday (10-5) and Sunday (11-5) the fun continues with both outdoor and indoor vendors. We were honored to be invited and would love to see some of our friends there! Our booth is located inside the Rose Center in room 6 and will have a little bit of everything...wall art, calendars, and boxed notecards. Doug and I will both be present for the preview evening and all day Sunday. However, Doug will be there alone on Saturday, so drop in and keep him company!

On Saturday, I will be at our gallery at Grit & Grace Market in Cleveland where the BIGGEST EVENT OF THE SEASON takes place as we celebrate the Fall Market Days. We have recently refreshed and restocked with plenty of new work, cards, and calendars. Beginning today and lasting through the close of business on Saturday, we are offering 20% OFF ALL WALL ART at this location. It will be the perfect time to come by and see me about a special order for someone on your Christmas list. I'll be looking for you!

After a relatively rough travel day yesterday, we are home safe and sound in Knoxville. Although we were to the airport in Paris 3 1/2 hours prior to our flight, we actually boarded just at takeoff time. The line for security was the longest one I have ever seen anywhere, so it took over two hours just to clear that one, and that was after standing in a very slow moving queue to just check in with the airlines. During the flight there were TWO medical emergencies where they called for any doctors on board to make themselves known! We also encountered the roughest turbulence that I can ever remember. and it continued on and off about half of the 8 hour flight. All was good, though, in the end when we arrived home around 8:30 local time.

This morning I loaded about a dozen of the favorite images from the river cruise trip to the website, so those are now available. I will try to load about ten each day over the next couple of weeks. However, if you have a favorite that you don't see on the website, just let me know, and I will include it there.

It occurred to me that many of our NEW FOLLOWERS may not realize that all of our photos can be ordered either as wall art (many formats and options) or as various other items to be used in your home or as gifts for those on your holiday list.

I am posting three examples of products...a tote bag, throw pillow, and coffee mug...that are typical of some of the available options on the website. Each of them is shown with an image from France. You will enjoy getting on the site and just seeing what is possible! For best viewing, click on each picture and see full screen.

If you haven't already done so, visit the website at marcysphotography.com and look around a bit. Please let me know if you have any questions about anything!

I really enjoy seeing all these places thru your lenses. Also, proud to own one of your canvases. If any of you are thinking about a purchase , do not hesitate they are even better in person. Excited to see Costa Rica.

STUNNING-(again!) I want to comment here that I have been to your site and was astonished to see that you have a full entire product line it's just not all for walls. I mention that because living here in Florida I see a lot of people have downsized and there wall space is very compromised lol. Go to Marcy's Website and see what I mean. She has taken her fantastic creations and Turned them into art for the home in many different ways (not only wall hangings)

Marcy- do you ever print on metal?

Last look...

While in a city like Paris, I prefer to photograph glimpses into the life of the city and it's people rather than concentrate on the iconic images that everybody expects. Having visited Paris prior to now, I have plenty of photos of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and all of the other images that are photographed by everyone who comes to the City of Lights.

So, with these photos taken around Paris, I'm closing the river cruise chapter. It has been a great two weeks, but Photo Journey has a lot coming up on the calendar over the next couple of months back in good old Tennessee.

Stay tuned for details soon with what we'll be doing this coming weekend!

Winding it down...

We are now off the ship and in a Paris hotel awaiting departure to Knoxville tomorrow. It has been a great adventure for us, this first river cruise, and I don't think we could have selected a better one than the Seine. The Danube awaits us next June, and we'll be looking forward to it, for sure!

One of our last places to visit while on the cruise was the charming little port city of Honfleur , France. It was a misty, drizzly, overcast afternoon, and possibly the very best kind of day to capture the essence of the quaint town.

Here's a look at Honfleur…

Awesome pics!! Thanks for taking us along!! Have a safe trip home!! 💗

What an incredible traveling experience you have shared with us this year! Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for taking us all along on your adventures. ❤️❤️

I am just amazed at your abilities. How you manage to take potentially beautiful shots and turn them into pure art and romance. I wish I had every country I've ever been to, with my favorite picture, that I knew had potentiality, developed into this. I wouldn't have an inch left on my wall anywhere in my home! You must really really love what you do I think it shows through. And how do you manage To be so prolific!

Beautiful as always. On the rainy afternoon, I would have been tempted to find a tea/coffee shop and stay inside.

As I said before, your photos are amazing! I am sorry your trip is ending and have enjoyed it immensely ! Can’t wait for your next trip!!!

Beautiful photos of this charming town!

Beautiful photos! Thank you so much for sharing your travels with those of here at home.

Your pictures are simply wonderful! I cannot wait to go on a River Cruise.

Rouen, France is perhaps best known as the place where Joan of Arc was martyred, but it is a beautiful city and has much to offer. We spent a day exploring Rouen and loved the colorful, half-timber style buildings, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the opportunity to learn so much about the rich history here.

A little rain didn't dampen our spirits too much, and it actually added a different spin on our photos here. 🙂

A small taste of the many images I took this morning at Monet's garden! Doug and I were here four years ago last May, so we had seen the gardens in the spring season, but I think I actually like the fall best.

Our cruise is winding down as we are now on our way back to Paris where we'll spend a couple of days before heading back to Knoxville on Wednesday.

We have docked at Rouen and the sign greeting us along the river promenade declares this to be the city of 100 steeples.

The daily itinerary of our guided trip lists a city walking tour, and that certainly means visits to one or more of the churches under those hundred.

There are sighs, thinking about hurting legs and feet across and along wet and slippery cobblestone streets. But invariably, we are energized and inspired by a local guide with impeccable English and a charming French accent who seems to know every detail of the place.

ABC - Another Big Church, but just one this time.

Our Lady of Notre Dame of Rouen is flamboyant - a word I had never associated with architecture, but some back research tells me that the myriad curly adornments of this late Gothic architecture make it so.

We are back in our room now, and I search for words and images to describe our day. Marcy declares that she is a cathedral junkie. She loves capturing the essence of churches and architecture and does a great job.

I struggle with architecture shots, nevertheless, I bring you these scenes from Our Lady of Notre Dame in Rouen. Stay tuned for Marcy’s versions a bit later.

Just stunning! It boggles the mind trying to imagine how the craftsmen were able to produce these beautiful buildings.

I learned about this cathedral in a art history class at Siena Heights University in Adrian Michigan

Breathtaking

Wow, how ornate !

Wow....just wow!

Yesterday was all about Vincent Van Gogh...

Our ship stopped for the day in Consflans-sur-Seine, France where we were picked up by motor coach and transported to Auvers-sur-Oise, a very tiny, charming town, where Van Gogh spent his last days tormented by loneliness and despair, then died of suicide at the age of 37.

Give me an old stone wall with blooming flowers, and I can spend several hours very happily taking pictures. There were plenty such opportunities, so here are a few favorites. Hope you enjoy a look through my lens at this little French town made famous by the tragic end of Vincent Van Gogh.
