Tierra Del Mar Haystack Rock Sunset

Beachcombers near sunset at Tierra Del Mar, with Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock in the background. I haven’t been posting much, lately. Mostly, I just haven’t been that happy with my work. Little pleases me. I sort of liked this one, though. I might have one or two others that I found interesting and I […]

Honey Bee Macro photo

Honey Bee

A honey bee feeds on sweet nectar from a pretty yellow flower. This is the kind of photography I do for personal entertainment. Frankly, I am over-tired from taking art and photography seriously. If it isn’t fun, it isn’t worth doing. Well, that’s how I feel about it for now. The full size version of […]

Pet Project

A feral kitten, full of fear and hope, finds my camera lens… part of the Feral Cat Rescue Project – my pet project, so to speak. And this is my semi-annual mention of the fact that there is more to life than art…and more to me than these pages. There used to be a saying, […]

He provided a thumbnail photo,though and I rummaged around and eventually found a print-sized scan of the painting on an old hard drive. This work is […]

gnarled path abstract photography-based art

Gnarly Path

Twisted paths are carved through space in this photography-based abstract piece, envisioned 30×30 on canvas.

By comparison, the shot framing and selection was easy – although admittedly there were many possibilities from which to choose. More […]

Gothic Forest abstract impressionist photography-based art
