New images with strong shadows

Still, experimenting with types of shadows at various times of the day. I think that I have only scratched the surface of what potential lies ahead with these investigations. Seems as if a warm surrealness happens with some forms and harsher
qualities with others. I do enjoy looking at these variations of light and shadow.
Hope you do too!

New photograph sketches

Well, in the many preparations for a one person show, I have set aside a bit of time to experiment with several of my photographs. It has been fun to generate some prints of my photographs and then go back into them with watercolors, colored markers and colored pencils. Here are a couple images that I have played with and one of them is actually part of my upcoming show in March. Enjoy!

sealing a moment...
wrapping up time,
freezing the subject.

four corners,
encircling, embracing,
all actors within,
now die a little.
for future fumbling
fingers to...
seal another moment.

Preparing for a show

Well, I have about had it with winter has been brutal here... as I write now there are 6-7 foot mountains of snow next to my driveway, and in front of the house.

But, I must begin working at completing a couple paintings, designing a show card, redoing my business card, building some frames for my work and generally, making sure that I can successfully create a one person show in the middle of March!

Also I am involved with the Port Washington Library Arts Council, just last night I assisted an artist taking down their show and wrapping the work, with a couple other council members.
Looking forward to getting my new work together and hanging my show in NYC in March! Stay tuned! -- BL
