Whimsical Works

Posted in New Works

I have added a new favorite to my “Whimsical Collection” – The concept came to my mind one day while browsing the shops at The Wheel in Pigeon Forge. It was about a month later, but finally “The Duck Family” is ready and already a 14×20 Wrapped Canvas hangs in the bedroom.     It was actually the store where I found Stewart, who is the subject of “Hopscotch“. Also in a 14×20 wrapped canvas already hanging in my bedroom before any of my gallery outlets have a print.       “Horse Play” was originally a piece  was just playing with and not having any intentions to make it a public gallery release. Funny thing was, when I first took it to The Turning Leaf Gallery in Blue Ridge, GA… It sold in the first 15 minutes of being there.       “Po Side In” started from a photo challenge between me and fellow photographer John Jacobs. As he dropped by my artist day at The Turning Leaf Gallery in Blue Ridge, GA, He made note of passing by the submarine, so I issued the challenge to see what we could come up with.       “The Big Show” is based on a character (the muscle...

Newness, Life & Death in One Scene = Life Also

Posted in New Works

As I look at my newest landscape “Tree Fog”, I see a very much different aspect of my art as it was years ago when I began. Life also contains the various stages-of-life aspects that this art piece does. Even the range of color is, while rather limited, at the same time it is also quite full of shades. As I had set out to capture the fog in some way make it in my style. Due to the processing I may feel the need to do on my images, sometimes it is not so easy to depict an atmospheric mood. After quite a bit of processing hours to get the “visual confusion” just right, I had reached a point where I can personally look at my other landscapes, and rate this as one of my very favorites, mainly due to the intriguing visual confusion this one seems to offer. There is just something about those dead tress… The similarity with chapters, events, history and so forth… of life itself, this piece has even more deeper values embedded in the image itself. We have a past that is behind us. But there is no going back to that youthful or any days prior to the one you are in...

It’s A Consumer Product, Not A National Treasure

Posted in Gallery News

Wake Up Fellow Photo Artist – Who knows just how many cameras, camera phones and tablets with cameras are out there amongst society. And each one of those image maker owners is a photographer and really doesn’t buy “photographic art” that easily. In the gallery I am working in today for example, there are about seven photographers and five of those sell straight non manipulated photos. Well, I should say, they try to sell… but the fact is that people who have a camera all think they could take the same picture and of course they are not about to buy an image they can make themselves. Then let’s also not forget the ridiculous prices that some photographers “think” their image is worth. As I strolled around last month’s First Friday event in Knoxville, I happened upon a gallery that had several photographic pieces of art. But, I guess the artist didn’t care wether or not it sells, because they had 16×20 matted, framed prints for $400 and up. OMG, give me a break folks, you can get 16×20 photo prints for $10 or less from so many suppliers like Adorama for example. So if you are putting your print under glass in a $300 frame, then you also...
