Fredericksburg’s Memorial Day Luminaries
You may remember from my photos last year that the Fredericksburg National Cemetery puts together an amazing display of luminaries on the Saturday before Memorial Day. All the details are at the National Park Service if you’re interested in visiting. If you’re in the area, it’s really amazing to see. I won’t be able to make it tomorrow, so I thought […]
Fruit Salad at LibertyTown
Here’s my Fruit Salad triptych as hung at LibertyTown on First Friday. I love how the photos work arranged vertically, especially in that space, right outside my friend Beth‘s studio. You might notice the red sticker, indicating that the triptych sold, and while I was there on Friday night! I mention this not just because it’s always […]
Last night on the Rappahannock. I hope everyone’s getting outside this weekend!
There’s one gallery show that inspires me to create something new every year, and that is, of course, LibertyTown‘s Feast for the Eyes. Determined to refine the technique I used for last year’s Blood Orange, I scoured the produce section for translucent fruits or vegetables, and wound up with grapefruit, star fruit and kiwi. I […]
I spent another beautiful afternoon in Charlottesville on my way to pick up my photos from the 40 under 40 show, and I managed to take a few photos. This is probably the last little day trip post I’ll have for a while, but I’ll have something very different to share in a few days. Stick around!
40 Under 40 Wrap-up
I had a blast at the opening reception for The Shenandoah Valley Art Center‘s 40 Under 40 exhibit, where I got to meet some fellow Virginia artists and see some great art that was entirely new to me. I hope it’s not the last I see of either. Thanks so much to anyone who made […]
40 Under 40
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been accepted into the Shenandoah Valley Art Center’s 40 Under 40 exhibit, showcasing 40 works from Virginia artists under 40 years old. I selected two pieces that I think represent one of the major directions I’ve been taking with my work lately: using the particular nature of photography to […]
Happy Repeal Day!
Happy Repeal Day! And thank you Catoctin Creek for the beautiful patina on your still; also of course for your amazing spirits.
Patience & Preparation
Sometimes I can spend hours trying to make one photo and, like yesterday, not quite get what I want. Other times, I just need to be prepared when the right moment comes along, like at this Dismemberment Plan show in Fredericksburg this summer.
Fall Foliage Art Show II
It’s time again for the Fall Foliage Art Show in Waynesboro, Virginia! You may remember that it went pretty well for me last year, so I’m excited to go back this weekend. I’ll have lots of new work since I was last there, and even some new work since my last show at Arts in […]
