Saucer magnolias, aka “tulip trees”, are among my absolute favorite flowers.  While the scent may not be as strong as that of the southern magnolia, the color more than makes up for it.  Every spring, the bare trees seem to suddenly burst with pink and white petals, which last for a few magical days before raining down, to be replaced by fresh spring leaves.  As a child, the tulip tree in my grandfather’s yard was my favorite to climb.  The view in the midst of all those flowers is amazing.

To share some of that feeling, I’ve added some new goodies to the soulbearing zazzle store— fabulous merchandise printed with fabulous floral photos created by yours truly.  The selection shown here is just a small example of a wide range of images, products, and gifts available.  You can even personalize them.

If you missed the original tangent about student loans and my mother recently taking up photography, here’s that entry.

But you don’t need the explanation to appreciate the images.

The new photos are finally posted, and the new framed 4 leaf clovers are still on the way.

The latest images are by *Mom* (yes, that’s my mother! and I’m so glad she’s creating again!).  She wants to use the money from the proceeds of her images to help with my student loans.  I have some mixed feelings about it because she shouldn’t have to worry about this stuff, but I am glad she is motivated to be creative again.   Photography is a fairly new medium for her.  She worked as an illustrator and did silk screening for a long time, but stopped creating years ago.  If some of the subject matter in the photos seems familiar, it should!  The photos were taken in the same area as many of mine, and some which haven’t been posted yet are even of some of the same buildings.

These images are already available on a wide range of items (the squirrel is a personal fave):

There is still so much to add, but I’ve added a couple of hundred new items this week, with 4 new previously unreleased images.

Fans of the rural, rustic, and natural images will love these.

There are new black & white floral photos:

New natural texture photos:

New charcoal sketches of cute critters:

And charcoal sketches of rural scenery:

All artfully reproduced and printed on a wide range of products, including phone cases, tshirts, collectors’ plates, household goods, ornaments, and more!
Happy shopping!

Oh, sure.  The snow is pretty.  But it’s cold.  And wet.  And I am looking forward to the warmer, sunnier days of spring– not to mention all those pretty, colorful blooms!

Listening to the winter wind howl, I’m patiently waiting for the earliest blooming flowers to “spring” to life again.  Here, the daffodils, forsythia, and pink magnolias are among the first flowers to poke out their petals.  It’s just another month or two, I tell myself…  Meanwhile, I have photos to hold me over.  I hope you like them, too.

These beautiful images and more are available, and can be printed to order on a wide variety of useful products at http://www.zazzle.com/soulbearing — You can even customize them!


My floral photography and art images have been very popular.  Because of the abstract quality of the lines, textures, and colours of flowers, they are among my favorite things to photograph– and hundreds of new products printed with my flower photos and paintings have been added to the Soulbearing zazzle shop. Here are just a few of my faves.   As difficult as it was, I managed to narrow my original choices (my original selection was “all of them”)  down to… a bunch:


As promised, the latest floral painting has been posted for sale via soulbearing.com.   At this price, it’s a steal!!  (Also, this reflects the new format on soulbearing.com, in which each painting will have its own page with detail photos!!)

Usually when flowers are my subject, photography is the medium of choice– but the response to my floral photography has been so positive that I decided it was time to do another floral painting. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the new signed original fine art paintings, not yet listed for sale on soulbearing.com

Pink Rose Floral Painting by S.Lynnette

…a pink rose bud, larger than life in acrylic paint with gloss finish on 24×30 inch stretched cotton canvas, gallery-wrapped on solid hardwood frame, one-of-a-kind and ready to hang in the home of a flower lover or art fan.  (The “S.Lynnette” watermarks are not part of the painting.)

It should be posted for sale in just a couple of days, so get your credit cards ready!! 🙂


The new paintings and latest site updates are taking a few days longer than planned… Meanwhile, four fabulous new floral photography calendars are ready for 2013!!  Roses, lilies, daffodils, and more grace the glossy pages of these 12-month treasures:

One with yellow flowers…

one with pink flowers…

one with roses…

and one with an assortment, perfect for any flower lover.


I may not be whole-heartedly a minimalist in lifestyle, but my special fondness of minimalism often shows in my art and photography.  In an increasingly complex world, sometimes it is preferable to get away from the distractions.  Minimalism is the avoidance or elimination of peripheral “noise”, to create a refined work that is lacking not in details, but in distractions.  The result is a moment distilled to its essence.


I find it difficult to paint in the art studio this time of year, with so many flowers in bloom.  So, while I was stopping to smell the roses (and irises, and lilies, and…), I also snapped some photos.

Some of the best floral photos are already available on all sorts of great merchandise in the soulbearing store on zazzle.com, and there is always more new work on the way.

To show appreciation for my customers, the reduced prices in the zazzle store will continue until June 20.  Happy shopping!! 🙂
