A MAJOR MONTH OF ART SALES in JUNE, 2020

Seventeen large traditionally-framed landscape scenes found a new home in two North Platte, Nebraska medical facilities.  The pieces, averaging 38" by 50," are displayed in the entries and waiting room areas, corridors, office, consultation and treatment rooms.  (see photos in the ABOUT section of this website) 

  In addition, a 2' by 3' canvas wrap (Littleton) and 2' by 3' gallery box mount (Silverthorne) boosted the month's business!


LOUISVILLE ART ASSOCIATION NATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW 

     The COVID pandemic forced a number of important events to reschedule this year.  Originally planned for the late spring quarter this year , the 2020 Louisville Art Association National Photography Show will now occur September 8-13 in a shortened (because of the virus) exhibit run.  This is an elite event, and all the images are juried in by a guest judge and the event chairmen.  One of my popular images, "ELECTRICITY," was selected (see, below).


TWO  PIECES  CHOSEN  FOR  JURIED  EXHIBITION

    A year ago, 2019, it was chosen, along with "GOLD INTO SILVER," for the annual City of Lone Tree  competition "Exploring the Light." I was pleased when "Electricity" was bought during the run of the show.



     If you're reading this, chances are good that you're a nature and photography buff, too.  Photography is a wonderful pastime for the casual shooter and a rewarding obsession for the person who demands more of themselves and their gear. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on how we do so much this year, but nature photography tends to be a solitary activity: social distancing is part of the attraction, for many.  Take precautions to be safe.

    


OLDER (but still good) NEWS  --  WINNER OF A NATIONAL MAGAZINE  COVER PHOTO COMPETITION

    This picture of me on the Emerald Pools trail in Zion National Park was taken about an hour before I made the shot the editors of COWBOYS & INDIANS chose for their 2014 annual photography issue's cover.

    I had a good feeling as I was settling on the composition for the Virgin River scene.  The conditions were promising and the light was getting better and better.  The hard part was waiting a week before seeing what I had gotten --  I was shooting medium format FILM through that big Pentax 67.

    You can see the actual magazine cover in the Honors & Awards section of this site, and my original image is in the Autumn & Changing portfolio.  It's called "A Virgin Autumn."

    More than 900 accomplished photographers submitted their work (around 1,400 images) for consideration.  I'm proud my image was selected as the face of a special issue.



BY  THE  WAY

    If you're someone who is thinking about setting up a new website, or changing from one you've been using, I suggest you consider the company I've used while creating this site.  Every thing you see throughout this site is MY own work -- content, fonts, sizes, positions, layout, backgrounds -- everything.

    SmugMug is one of the top five host/design entities in the world and they have great basic designs and economical plans for every level of user.  One of the things I was most concerned about was support: I'm a "liberal arts" guy -- not a computer geek -- and I needed to know I could count on prompt and frequent "hand-holding."

    Simply stated, they exceeded my expectations.    As one of their "members" I'm now authorized to share with you a discount offer they provide.  When you sign up, use this code --  ItvdKRr8Gv6s2 --  to further reduce their already reasonable charges.  (And, yes, I will also get a small kick-back if you do.  It's about growing the big happy "family."
