Sometimes people want to know what the original image was and how did I get to what the final image is. Well it is a compilation of filters and techniques that through journey and discovery, I come up with a new work.
Every February 14th, across the US and in other places of the world, flowers, gifts, cards and other mementos are exchanged between loved ones in the name of Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day has a history in both the Catholic and Christian Church traditions.
Sometimes individuals or designers will ask me if my work will fit into any categories or themes. Besides Florals, Abstracts and Black & White, I ask what type of fine art would reflect the mood or "feel" in the space, they are working with.
Traditionally, I have created works in color, whether they be bright, bold, subdued, painterly of pastoral. My belief was that color was the only choice I had in terms of conveying my emotion and expressions.
I encounter people periodically who want to start collecting art but don’t really know how to start. They comment “I like this, I like that, and oh, I also like that” and their comments of confusion continue . . .
By 1961, “Black Friday” had caught on in Philadelphia, to the extent that the city’s merchants and boosters tried unsuccessfully to change it to “Big Friday” in order to remove the negative connotations. The term didn’t spread to the rest of the country until much later, however, and as recently as 1985 it wasn’t in common use nationwide. Sometime in the late 1980s, however, retailers found a way to reinvent Black Friday and turn it into something that reflected positively, rather than negatively, on them and their customers.
Some people have recommended to first-time art buyers that they inquire about several things. Such as how long has the artist been doing his creative work. How long has the artist been exhibiting and where? Has the artist been mentioned or featured in print articles? Has the artist received any awards? There are many questions but I thought I would respond to some of them and share with you some more information about me.
Creative photography comes into play when a photographic artist begins to use techniques that either change the image completely, or the image remains discernable with changes in colors, backgrounds, etc.
A while back, I had a client ask me how to care for their fine art print. There is not one single answer to this question. There are several things to consider. Let me share with you some of the things to be aware of.
Question: Although the times have changed in terms of viewing photography or digital art as fine art, there are some that still believe that photography and digital are not proper mediums in the world of fine art and that photography is only documentation of an event or subject. What are your thoughts on this matter?
Photography is a fascinating medium. The ability to artificially and accurately preserve a moment in history, capturing reality as if it were literally frozen in time, is an amazing achievement in human ingenuity. Photography began as a series of science experiments centered on capturing light as physical images, and subsequently evolved into a medium through which the average consumer could record important moments in their lives.
Art is the primary method through which an individual attempts to share their view of the world around them with others. Art has existed for hundreds of thousands of years and has taken many forms over the centuries. The earliest humans attempted to preserve knowledge and culture through crude sculptures and drawings, many of which can be seen in museums and archaeological sites to this day.
Frequently artists, using all mediums, or collectors try to find Aft Fairs or art competition. With the help of Art-Collecting.com , I have put together an initial listing. If you learn of an exhibition or competition not on this list, please send me information about the event. The information I will need is Date of event, Location, what mediums are included in the event and contact information.

Archival - A non-technical term that suggests that a material or product is permanent, durable, or chemically stable, and that it can therefore safely be used for preservation purposes. the phrase is not quantifiable; no standards exist that describe how long an “archival” or “archivally sound” material will last. That being said, all of our prints and frames are made using archival materials and when stored appropriately will exceed a lifespan of at least 70 years.
