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?”

Who Else Wants the Perfect Place in a Small Town?

October 17, 2008

Most artists aspire to some kind of studio to create or write. The story of Jackson Pollack in his studio during the drip period in a rural area of Long Island is a great example. That would be the right mix of creativity and sense of place for me on a pleasant summer day.

Right now a spare bedroom with a computer is the best I can do but that does not stop me from dreaming. There are many places in California I see regularly that I would love to live. My Wonder Years (2-12) were spent in New Jersey and last month I managed to visit a beautiful community in the Garden State called Bedminster. I picked out a few places there to add to my wish list and managed to take a picture of this house because it caught my eye and seemed to pull me in with its charm.

I suppose everyone has a place or many places you would like to call home. As time goes on I’ll include more of mine in this blog.
