Wordless Wednesday 

One fuschia plant, photographed and processed three ways:

 Just want to mention that all of my textures are by 2LilOwls (see sidebar)…I’m an affiliate so if you make your purchases through my affiliate link you’d be helping me out a great deal—and getting some marvelous textures and presets to play with at the same time!

Wordless Wednesday 

One last summer pic before the switch over to fall, which currently is my favorite season. (Although if you ask me next April, yes, spring will be my favorite season…in June, I most likely in will say summer…and of course there is one season being left out which will remain nameless, although I love it in December as long as it brings us pretty, fluffy snow for Christmas.)

latest news from my shop!

I am now offering my art for sale through Society6 online; so just follow the link to “my” online shop, at https://society6.com/barbaramarincel

Through Society6, I can offer everything from art prints to canvases to travel mugs and stationery to shower curtains (yes, really, although I don’t have any photos the right file size yet!). On the right-hand side of this blog, or at the foot, if you are on a mobile device, I’ve included a little slideshow that displays some of the items currently available. If you have any special requests, please let me know, and I’d be happy to see if we can work something out!

Thanks much,
Barbara 🙂

Fiona and I are happy to announce that Gingerfancy Photography is finally up and running, offering nine (or is it ten?) photos FOR SALE!!! I have hooked up with Fine Art America, and I will be gradually adding more photos throughout the next couple of weeks.

To order, go to my Gingerfancy Photography Page widget at the bottom of this page and click on any photo that says it is posted by Fine Art America, and it will take you directly to my site on Fine Art America. Or you can access my site on Fine Art America directly at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/1-barbara-marincel.html . The photos are available in anything from prints to greeting cards to beach towels (seriously!)…I hope you find something you like! If you see a photo on this blog that you like and isn’t for sale, please let me know–I’ll be more than happy to add it to the images currently for sale.

In the next few days, I hope to upgrade my membership with Fine Art America and get a shopping cart widget for this blog so any interested readers may buy from them directly.

Summer Retrospective

welcome to gingerfancy photography and art! 

I’m finally gathering my courage together and taking a few more baby steps towards my new endeavor. My plans are, primarily, to sell photos (still life, nature) online (on this blog, a Facebook page, and a site like Fine Art America) and possibly through Etsy or a similar venue.

I’m not going to be doing weddings or portraits however. My chronic pain problems are so disabling they rule out anything that involves keeping regular appointments and having the energy to do a photo shoot with couples and/or families…I get exhausted just thinking about it! This way, I can take and edit photographs on my good days–or mornings or afternoons–and spend entire days in bed or doing whatever I need to do to take care of myself. If I’m having a fibromyalgia flare and am stuck at home for a week, that’s okay, no appointments to cancel.

Another plus is that this is a way for me to be creative even when I’m too tired and headachy to write. This has been one of my biggest frustrations for years. I haven’t given up on my dream of becoming a writer (although how does one know definitively when one can say “I am a writer”?), but it’s definitely on hiatus right now thanks to my horrid chronic migraines and other headaches.

Speaking of headaches…mine is growing exponentially. I’m going to add a couple of photographs from our mini-vacation to Bayfield and Cornucopia, WI, last week, and leave you with the promise to write more tomorrow.:)


Have a lovely week, my friends!
