I am very happy with my bag and take it with me when I go shopping. It holds a number of articles and attracts attention because of the dogs' photo on both sides.

Gorgeous art on a practical bag. Thank you, my talented friend, for helping me add a bit of magic to the everyday! Just the grownup upgrade I needed from hauling my stuff around in my boring grocery tote bags.

Artist's Description

As the soft morning light began to illuminate the valley below us in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, one thing became clear...this beautiful, old, abandoned home had a story to tell. The colorful fall trees glowed around it, as the shadows beyond the trees kept everything else in darkness. I am sure there was a day that this home was filled with love and laughter. I can almost see and hear little children running around playing in the front yard. If only this house could talk. But, then, I actually did feel like I could hear it telling me it's story. If you listen closely, I'm sure you will hear it, too!! (If you would like to see this and experience it in person, be sure to book a stay at the Wildberry Lodge in Leicester, North Carolina. I highly recommend it!!)

About Lynn Bauer

Lynn Bauer

I am a Southern California based photographer and digital artist, and I love doing what I do! I am a wife, mother, and grandmother, who loves God, my family and my country. Although, I primarily shoot landscapes, I am always looking for the finer detail within the landscapes, as well. I chase wildflowers wherever I can find them! An almost equal passion to wildflowers is my passion for gorgeous little hummingbirds! I'm in heaven when I manage to find them both together! I've been blessed to see and capture some amazing scenes, and I will continue to travel wherever and whenever I can to expand and grow my portfolio. I love the capture of special light. Light makes, or breaks, a scene. Light highlights, defines, and adds drama. ...
