Latest work: "Pastel Colors Calligraphy"

My daily routine begins around 4:30 a.m., and I use the next few hours to just play around with my images. What if I combine this with that? What if I rotate it? What if I introduce this particular color? What happens then? No plans, no rules, just experimentation. The result is often a delightful surprise, and that’s what happened here.

I had been photographing military bunkers on the Washington coast, looking for interesting patterns on weathered walls. I combined a number of those photos together and then added photos of torn Japanese papers from an antique screen.

The color palette is unusual, the design is simple, and I like the left-right feeling of movement that runs across the image. A good morning indeed!
