Latest work: "Boat Textures"

One of my many delights living here on the Oregon coast is the opportunity to photograph fishing boats, specifically, the abstract patterns on their metal hulls. The scrapes, rust, scratches, textures, and colors are (to me) quite exciting. They are works of art in and of themselves. Here you see hints of sea and sky, land and water, stars and fish, all combined into one simple image. I hope you enjoy seeing how common elements can become almost celestial.
