Ice Candles 2010 ...

I am an artist. I have time on my hands. I am dangerous.

My photographs are in the Birch Tree Gallery here on Main Street. And I create night lights with my photographs, using a process called DyeNamic Infusion ... those are in Houston at the gallery of Joan Son. I was not planning this. 2010 has been a great year for Laurie On The Prairie.

These days I am a winter artist of ice, ice candles, icicles and snow. This is a harnessed creativity that will carry me to warmer temperatures. It's free style loosie goosie and it's taking place on my deck.

You can bet your sweet bottom, southern or otherwise, it's cold out there. And art has no temperature gauge. It doesn't get cold. Art happens around the conditions. It's like pulling off a gravel road, laying down in a ditch, and crawling around to capture a cloud. It's art. It's me. I'm giving it my full attention.


  1. Those are great! I might have to make some - what do you use to color them?

  2. it's food coloring ... isn't it gorgeous? i can't wait to get them out. do you need my recipe? xoxo.
