Santa Clara University Concert in the Mission

November 17, 2008

The university’s orchestra played beautiful music inside the beautiful mission and it was a terrific combination. This pianist is a student at SCU and he was a crowd pleaser. Lucky for me, my niece plays in the violin section and got me a front row seat for this view. This was an evening to be remembered.

Just Published – Venice Grand Canal Oil

November 10, 2008

This is about the most famous view of Venice available. Most everybody that comes to Venice takes a picture from this spot and I see it on television all the time. With that in mind I  feel comfortable issuing a new version of my work this time as an oil motif. Lately I’ve been going back to revisit my earlier digital work. What do you think? Should I leave well enough alone?

My reasoning for going back is my techniques and skills have grown over the years and this picture is a favorite.

Sunflowers and the table

November 7, 2008

This is from the same series as the pitcher view of sunflowers. This time I heavily edited the busy background of this shot to highlight the table, pitcher and flowers. Soon I’ll be showing here the before and after photos of my work because so many ask “How did you do that?” or “What did the original picture look like?”

Sunflowers

November 2, 2008

This pitcher of sunflowers sets on the table of the foyer in my home. In order to get the light from the side I had to open the front door to the house. Later I add a variation of this version just for fun.
