Diary; July 16th, 2020 – Memory Pods

The fifth year of photographing my botanical subjects that comprise my Memory Pods series has somewhat drawn to an end. I now have another small collection of dried twigs and seed pods to play with later this year. The flowering/seeding cycle for my backyard plants starts sometime in March and ends towards the end of... Continue Reading →

Diary; July 14th, 2020

Yesterday, July 14th, I took another long hike down into Arroyo Trabuco to work on my pandemic project, or should I say, the series of artworks that coincided with the start of the COVID-19. This urban landscape photograph was made at the start of my journey and part of my ten-minute rule to become creatively... Continue Reading →

Dye sublimation on clear base aluminum

My experimentation/play series of organic abstraction during the COVID-19 pandemic has also included some printing evaluations using dye sublimation printing process on clear base aluminum. I have been working with three west-coast California print labs on this printing project and they all have a slight variation on what to call this process and medium such as HD Metal,...

National Camera Day 2020

National Camera Day was actually yesterday, but I had a full schedule to work on, thus while taking notice, I had to defer writing anything about it. In thinking about it this morning, I realized that this might be an opportunity or a two-fer, part illustrating my favorite film rig in action and second riffing... Continue Reading →

Purple Fringe

A quick shout-out about my discovery of purple fringe and what to do about controlling it, which is not to be confused with the song Purple Rain.

Getting out side with some film today

I took a short break-out walk with the camera and some expired 120 film today. First time out with a non-digital camera since the California COVID shelter-in-place order in early March. While wearing my mask, of course. Since my pro-lab was shut down, sort of lost my inspiration to shoot film if I could not... Continue Reading →

LACP Fundraising Artsy.net exhibition

I am honored to be participating in the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) members fundraising exhibition which is being hosted on-line with Artsy.net. This is a short exhibition time-frame, June 16th through June 30th. I think that this is a nice response to the current COVID-19 conditions, which is a win-win for LACP and... Continue Reading →

Memory Pods > 3D virtual exhibition

I am very honored to be included in a new 3-Dimensional virtual gallery exhibition with Fabrik Projects, Here Comes the Sun, featuring artwork from my Memory Pod series. On top of that, the Beatles (hopefully the exhibition title seems just a little familiar) was one of my favorite bands in the late 1960's. I had... Continue Reading →
