Starting a New Project

A new project idea about daily intake (or consumption). I am not sure how do describe the work yet. I am fascinated by the catalog these images become.

Inspiration Found In Unexpected Places

Inspiration comes to us in the the most unexpected places. It was during a visit to the coast with Thea on a rainy day in November that I happened upon the work of Ruth Silverman.

The Influence of Color

The Influence of Color

This past weekend I spent a few hours working on a new series. The loose title for the series is, Seasonal Patterns. This title suggest the source from which my subjects are derived. Like humans, not all trees were created with the same personalities. Once I began this series about the colors, shapes, textures and […]
