Jamie Calkin: Awesome Athens Artist

While at the Full Bloom Anniversary Party yesterday (see post below), I got to view some of the ink and watercolor prints by Jamie Calkin.  He is an Athens artist that depicts local Athens scenes in his paintings.  Being an Athens resident and a UGA graduate myself, the paintings bring to mind many fond memories of living in this beautiful college town.  They leave me with the feelings of sentiment and nostalgia.  I love his work, so I thought I would share his site with all of you (  Also, Jamie and his wife, Katie, were the ones that organized the event for Full Bloom yesterday.  I really admire their spirit, talent, and heart.

Princess M Sneak Peek

Little Miss M was so much fun to photograph!!  She is just adorable!!Her 2 year old energy and spirit were contagious!  We roamed around Ashley Park, finding cute little photo spots and having fun while we did it.  It was a hot day, but it didn't seem to faze our princess at all.  I think the ice cream may have helped!!
