.~ Hide n' Seek.~

Hide n' Seek by Traci Suzanne Marvel

My artistic spirit craves peace and quiet. 
There is a space in the middle between peace and quiet that I do my best work. 
 I call that space tranquility. 
The second I set foot on the Sundance Resort's property, tranquility greets me.
 This painting Hide n' Seek expresses how I feel when I visit there in the fall.
 It is a magical place where I go to both hide and seek.

.~ Love is Here to Stay.~

 Painting by Traci Suzanne Marvel

It's very clear, our love is here to stay
Not for a year but ever and a day
The radio and the telephone and the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go
But oh, my dear, our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

  Music written by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
