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...

Seasons in Life & Seasons in Creativity

Posted in Brain Stew

We go through life at a pace in which we don’t notice the gradual changes that happen to us until they have already happened. And then we act like we are amazed that we let ourselves get a certain way or to a certain place in life. When we get to those places where we have noticed a big change, then we refer to those time periods in life as seasons. Fot some people the seasons are very long, some can be very short and some can have a mixture of season lengths in their life. Of course I have marked various seasons in my life, but I have also found that I can also pinpoint differences in styles and subjects in my art. And have several markedly different seasons in my creative life as well. In fact, I think its a good thing for an art person to evaluate their work every now and then and see if they think they could improve upon it in some way. And so many times, we seem to even totally change the style or the subject themes we use. As I look back over the years of playing with cameras I can see various gaps in the production of works. And...

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...
