New Work


New work will soon be posted on the website.
Actually, I am always somewhere in the process of creating new work, the website and blog simply lag behind.  Mea culpa.

"Fallen Roof"
from The Lonely Places


This image is from The Lonely Places project.   
The roof collapsed on the ruins of a bank building, creating this almost abstract form in the midday sunlight. 

I am working more with abstract forms created in the harsh desert sun.  A natural progression I suppose.

Patience

"Lonely Grave"
from The Lonely Places project
This picture is titled "Lonely Grave" from The Lonely Places project.  It is high in the mountains near Virginia City, Nevada, in a large and badly abused cemetery south of town.

When I first visited this place years ago, I had a vision of how I wanted to interpret this particular grave site.  However, I had to return many times over several years before I found the right combination of light, clouds, mountains, and wind to make the image work.  

Making an image that says just want you want can take a lot of patience and discipline.  But when when you keep at it (and when Nature cooperates) - reward!
