Latest work: "Crows by the Numbers"

I run a private Facebook page called "Photomotivation," and every month I give my members an assignment. (Members consist mostly of previous students and various riff-raff, so if you're interested in playing along, let me know and I'll give you the secret word that will open the appropriate door.)

This month's assignment is "Extreme Colors," and it's fun to see what everybody is coming up with. I also play along, so not only is it fun for them, but it's fun and inspirational for me as well.

This is an example of what I mean. It's a photomontage of pictures I've taken in Anacortes, Washington. I love the exaggerated colors, the combination of elements I used, the overall industrial look, and how the black crows and the chainlink fence sort of "ground" everything above them.

What I also like is how this now becomes something I've uploaded to Fine Art America, something more for me to offer for sale. An example for my students, a fun project for me, and perhaps a sale down the line at FAA. Win-win-win!

Wishing you a colorful day today.
