Erin’s art was showcased and awarded in this year’s Scholastic Art Awards, where she came home with two gold awards and one silver award.

My 52 Project continues this week with a focus on food photography. With top-down lighting, I captured a wild mushroom sauté on top of a bed of creamy, cheesy polenta. It was a learning experience on both the photography and cooking fronts.
This post is the kick-off to a “52 Project” for 2014 that will involve me publishing a new photo once each week. This should give me a chance to further improve my photography skills and exercise my creative muscle.
