Acknowledging And Accepting Your Art Market…

Acknowledging and accepting your Art Market. Seems like a heady subject for me, but one that has made quite a difference in my approach to my photography and also my peace of mind. As artists, we all hope that everyone will love our work. We cling to the hope that our images (our art) will... Continue Reading →

Speaking of Minimalism…..

Skeleton Leaf #7 Many of the folks who follow me, or are familiar with my work, are well aware of my fondness for minimalism in my images. Well, at least for the majority of those images, that is true. Those same folks are also aware of my fascination with skeleton leaves, and the opportunities that... Continue Reading →

A Tentative Return

It's been far too long since my last post, and I certainly don't expect major reach with this return post. It's certainly been a trying year for all of us. Along with the pandemic, I've been dealing with a case of identity theft. That's my problem to deal with. The time in isolation has had... Continue Reading →

Art and Isolation….

Well, it's been quite a while since my last blogpost. It certainly has ben a difficult summer. Like many other artists, I have struggled to keep motivated and inspired.

There are many ways to accomplish this so I'll just say that this is... Continue Reading →

I have often been asked, and often written about what is the inspiration for some of my... Continue Reading →

What’s Old Is New Again…

For those that know or follow me, you understand that I have never been afraid to revisit an old file. We learn new techniques and gain new skills which can be used to develop a new interpretation of that old file. Such is the case with this image. I've recently talked about some old negatives...

Revisiting an old friend…

I recently had a very good day. I happened across an old box that contained some old negatives that I thought had been lost forever. There weren't many, but a few were some of my favorites from those old film days. I carefully scanned a few of those and began to think about the changes... Continue Reading →
