Album Cover Wall Art Display Ideas

Iíve been meaning to share this album cover wall art display idea for awhile, but life had other ideas in mind.

Creating Art - Behind My Process

When I share my work online, I frequently get comments along the lines of ďbeautiful painting!Ē In fact, itís become so frequent Iíve gotten to the point where I simply say thanks. That facile acknowledgement is because my process of creating art lies in some netherworld between photography and painting and trying to explain that to the casual observer is no easy task. In fact, Iíve thought of writing something on the subject for quite some time and.....Read More

Throw Pillows Reviewed

Around a year ago give or take, one of the various print on demand companies I use started offering throw pillows. It wasnít really a product I ever thought of offering but I decided to give it a go. Since then, one by one, each POD seems to be adding them to their offerings and Iíve had some repeat buyers. So, when my main site started offering them, curiosity finally got the better of me and I decided to get .....Read More

Starry Night Skies Over The Beach At Tybee Island

Itís not often that I can say one of my pieces was the stuff of dreams, but it seems my most recent artwork falls into that ethereal camp.

What It Means to Be an Artist

Considering how long photography has fought for a place at the artistic table, Iím often amazed when I ...Read More
