Dublin Nights – Temple Bar Stroll

Dublin Nights - Temple Bar Print From In Front of The Quays Bar

I know you are all thinking, well, hello stranger! I kept thinking I would get to post an update that I was done with the never-ending transition to my new print gallery site, but that is a story for another day. I realized the other day that it has been entirely too long since I shared new artwork. And yet I have more than a few new works like this Dublin Nights print of which I’m quite proud. It’s been several years now since my month in Ireland, but most … Continue reading

Starry Night Skies Over The Beach At Tybee Island

Art Print Of A Fantasy On Beautfiul Tybee Island

It’s not often that I can say one of my pieces was the stuff of dreams, but it seems my most recent artwork falls into that ethereal camp. I woke up in the middle of the night with the clearest image in my mind of the night sky over the pier at the beach on Tybee Island. Considering how fully asleep I had been it was amazingly clear in my mind when I sat up in bed, right down to what photo would work best as the starting point. You … Continue reading

Lost Morning On The Chattahoochee River

Lazy Morning On The Chattahoochee River

My years dealing with rolls of film were long past by the time the camera bug truly bit me, but it’s still a part of my youth. And misplacing film was practically a way of life for me. Heck, my baby pictures were on a roll of film lost for years thanks to an absent minded uncle! So, I think that shows that lost film and my life are genuinely hand in hand. That’s been the one lost pleasures of digital photography. Sure, flash cards might go bad or hard … Continue reading

Abstract Photography – What’s in A Name?

Abstract Photography - An Elevator captured in motion and repeating lines

Perhaps abstract photography is too abstract to get much notice online? It’s been a slow but beneficial journey for me, learning how important the words that accompany art are online. Our search engines are smart, but they don’t yet know with any precision what’s in a picture or whether it’s the one you’re looking for just based on your search request. Maybe you’d like to help me describing a piece of abstract photography? Background Over the course of  many months, I started working to improve the descriptions that accompany my … Continue reading

Family Photo Restored

Photo Restoration Project - Early 1950's Kindergarten - Andalusia Alabama

Just thought I’d share a little personal project on which I recently worked. My late grandmother was one of the world’s original pack-rats, and the good side of this was ending up with a pile of old family photos and correspondence. Sadly when you tack decades onto the average photo, the results are not great, and some are more well-worn than others. Still, it’s quite neat no matter how weathered to see images that stretch back to your great, great, great, great grandmother! And I had to count to be … Continue reading

British Whimsy Lives

Artsy Picture of a Red British Telephone Booh from London, England

It’s no secret that London is one of my favorite cities, and all the buzz about the Olympics this summer and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee has certainly made me nostalgic. I can’t believe I haven’t been to London since 2008! I would love to rectify that situation but the opportunity and funds haven’t shown themselves, so for now my return trip there is just a dream. Keeping in mind how long it’s been since I’ve been to London and the utterly obvious fact I don’t live there, it’s not the … Continue reading
