Skin

This image began as a photograph of light refraction on a our white refrigerator. This is the final image after several steps of digital manipulation in Photoshop. The texture of this image reminded me of the texture of skin. I will have a print made of this image, and the size will be 32″ wide by 12″ high

DCF 1.0

This is a photograph that I took of a plastic colander. A simple definition of a colander is “a perforated  bowl used to strain off liquid from food” I see it as an object that has windows that lets light come through it that creates an interesting visual image. .The title of this photo is Kitchen Shapes #4a. It is one of a series of photographs that I have taken of objects found in my kitchen. I have titled this series “Kitchen Shapes”. I placed the colander in front of the kitchen window to let the subshine come through the square shapes.I liked the shadow and shapes in this photo.

Fort Worth Longhorn Steer

My wife Carolyn and I went to Fort Worth ,Texas in April of 2008 to visit friends and while we were taking a tour of the city and the well known Stock Yards, I took numerous photographs of our varied surroundings ,fascinated with street scenes and the city’s architecture.  As I viewed the images on my computer monitor after I returned home,I became aware of details ,subtleties ,colors and shapes I hadn’t particularly noticed through the viewfinder. I began a body of work I have titled “A Visiting Artists View of Fort Worth”.
