Water Pitcher and Bowl

Water Pitcher and Bowl

You do not see with the lens of the eye.  you see

through that, and by means of that, but you see

with the soul of the eye.

John Ruskin

This water pitcher and bowl resides in the hallway of my sister-in-law’s beautiful Muskoka home.  I was always attracted to it, always wanted to  photograph it, and finally did.  It wasn’t the most pleasurable of shoots, always being afraid that something or anything could damage the fragile subject.  Beside the underlying fears, the shoot went well, the water pitcher and bowl were eventually returned undamaged, and the first print resides at her house; a woman’s retreat called My Friend Fran’s. I’m happy to announce this image is also now available for sale at Fine Art America.

Been playing around and I think I’ve found a way to include the ever so important Fine Art America sponsored search engine pages.  I think they’re less intrusive, click on them to have a look at all the art, and let me know what you think.

Wine Bottle and Glass

This image of a wine bottle and glass can be better viewed at Fine Art America. Please excuse this double posting already seen on Facebook, but since I started posting to Fine Art America, some of my postings will be doubled upto reach a ever increasing audience and to add the ever so important Fine Art America search engine links.

I have always been interested in old main stream photographic processes that today are classified as “alternate.” Way back when; in photo school, long before digital cameras, I did my final semester project on the Platinum/palladium print process with some printed examples. My instructor loved the results, I don’t think he returned some of the images actually; but barely gave me a passing  mark because of his wondering “what commercial value was it.” After graduating, I went to the Ontario college of Art, primarily to study under a instructor who was quite heavily involved in the Gum Bichromate process. Needless to say my passion and interest in these processes remains today and the digital process has only helped me to mimic them. To those new to the image enjoy; feel free to share by social media and of course here follows some Fine Art America links to move my images up their search engine results.

Flowering Poppy

I’ve posted another image to Fine Art America of this black and white flowering poppy.  Fine Art America has millions and millions of webpages dedicated to specific types of artwork.   Due to the large number of images and the large number of artists on FAA, it can sometimes be difficult to stand out in the crowd on these search pages.  In order to promote myself and stand out from the crowd, I can “sponsor” these artwork search pages and my work will appear in the third row. Of course if more then three artists “sponsor” a page we have to take turns, but it is still better then being way down the search list.   Apparently I can sponsor as many pages as I want, and already my list is long.  So here is a test list, feel free to click on and visit the pages.
