Among the Oak Trees #2

Among the Oak Trees #2
A new image in my continuing series “Among the Trees,” and one of three that sold during the reception for my solo show at the Ledgewood Creek Winery. I’m delighted how it turned out, especially with the oak trees in the background. The color and appearance of the background wasn’t achieved with just the tree […]

Sold! ……… and just think I almost deleted it.

This piece is currently in the Benicia Arts show, “Art of a Community,” and I’m pleased to say that it found a happy home on the night of the reception. I completed this piece in October, and as I was working on it I almost hit the delete button during a moment of frustration, as […]

Looking Back…..

This passing year for me has marked a turning point with my photographic imagery. Beginning in 2012 I made the choice to photograph more what is a passion of mine, with that being to capture the spirit of the horse. This year my catalog of images has brought me to the beginnings of creating three […]

Wonderful News!

  Entering a juried competition is somewhat of a crap shoot, as you never know what the judge will select for the show. Nevertheless, I am honored to have my image, “Among the Trees #2” accepted by the Center of Photographic Art to hang in their 2014 Jury Exhibition. It goes without saying that this organization has […]

More Good News………

More Good News………
This image, “Along for the Ride,” was recently included in the online magazine,”Horse and Driver,” on page 44, in the link below. The editor had sent a request to artists who specialize in equine art to submit a piece for consideration to be included in their fall edition. This was perfect, I thought, being this […]

I Love England

I Love England
I love England, there is just something about the antiquity of it; from the quaint villages and old pubs, to the narrow winding roads that meander through the lush green countryside, and oh yes, let me not forget a creamed tea. If I wasn’t so encumbered, I would love to drop everything and move there […]

I Love Dogs Too………

I Love Dogs Too………
This picture makes me smile……… maybe it’s because I was there, but I think anyone who is a dog lover will see something special in this image. A few weeks ago, I noticed something unusual on a large parcel that we view below our house. This parcel had been dry farmed, and on it was […]

The 2013 California State Fair recently concluded and I’m happy to say, not only did I have a piece selected for the Fine Art show, but my entry, “On the Run,” sold as well. For me, there is something really quite special when someone makes the decision to purchase my work. I am honored by […]

The Cruise was a Sea of Dreams …………

The Cruise was a Sea of Dreams …………
I’ve recently returned from a wonderful trip to Alaska, but I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed as I look through the images from my adventure. I almost don’t know where to begin. We had perfect weather, of which produced incredible light that made the scenics startling beautiful, almost surreal at times. The trip was only a […]

Looking Forward to More New Work …………

Looking Forward to More New Work …………
Over the last couple months almost all the pictures I have taken have been exclusively of horses. Not surprisingly, that includes a few thousand edited images that have taken me to the pageantry of a Draft Fest, the warm light in the stalls at Pebble Beach, the stunning movement of the Leopard horses of Access Adventure, […]

Social media and internet marketing are interesting beasts …..

I have been getting some nice press recently thanks to internet sites that use Facebook as a way to market their business and sites that bring awareness to a non-profit. The interesting thing is you don’t always know that this is going on unless someone happens to mention that they read something about you online. […]

Meet Minuete……..

Meet Minuete……..
In the early hours on April 26, under a full moon, this beautiful filly came into the world. Being able to photograph this new born when she was only hours old gives you a front row seat into the tender bonding that takes place between mare and foal. From the birth process complete in 20 […]

No Picture Postcards, Please……………

This is 1 of 3 images that I’m happy to say was accepted into Carmel Art Institute’s current show entitled, “Along Junipero Serra’s Path: California Missions & Presidios. For this show only specific missions could be included and I chose to photograph the mission at Carmel. The problem with the missions is that they have been […]

Moss Landing Sunbathers……..

Moss Landing Sunbathers……..
After clearing my plate of the annual pain of completing my income taxes, it was time to treat myself to a few days of photographing. With the intent of exploring some new places, I headed out early to Elkhorn Slough and Moss Landing. After coming over the hill from sunny Carmel to find the Monterey […]

Forgotten Icons……………….

Forgotten Icons……………….
For the last year, adjacent to a highway I travel frequently, I have noticed in passing a herd of Clydesdale horses that began with two and has grown to eight now. I have oftened wondered if they are a retired herd of the famous Budweiser horses, but I have never stopped for a closer look, […]

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever ………..

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever ………..
What is it that draws me to creating photographic imagery; in asking myself that question reveals a very simple answer…….. beauty. The countless hours spent escaping into my peaceful search for what is beautiful to me is a labor of love. It may not be a subject search in the literal sence, but rather the […]

Love Is………….

Love Is………….
Producing some images for an upcoming shown entitled “The Love Show,” I had to decipher what “love is” and depict it photographically. Certainly on a personnel level love can be defined by each of us in a different way. It may bring to mind visions of a fond memory from another place and time, moments […]

Happy New Year……… Yesterday has Become Today

Happy New Year……… Yesterday has Become Today
This image isn’t something I would include in my gallery, but I do believe a sunset appeals to the human spirit. I was photographing at Point Lobos just before Christmas and I was wrapping up my day watching the setting sun. It was so peaceful there with the gentle sound of the surf, not a […]
