I will let the pictures answer a few questions. But in the meantime, I found myself surrounded by numerous peaks, but perhaps most importantly The Eiger, The Monk, and The Young Frau (as seen in this picture). As only the Swiss would do...I traveled up INSIDE the Eiger (by train) to a place that came out near the top at the top of the Jungfrau. You can look at the pictures, and if you have any questions, I will try and answer them.
I have added some pictures of the Migration Series. This may be a bit redundant, but I formed these to keep my interest in the MOVEMENT. I wanted something to involve me as a painter, and as simple as movement was, it kept my interest and motivated me. The colors aren't maybe what you would expect, but I had some fun with them! And I will look for some pictures, but the "fishes" were built from copious layers of paint.
I have added a few images from Chamonix, 2010 (near Mt. Blanc in France) and Rome in 2005. There might be more order in the future, but for now, I want to get a fair amount of pictures on my web site.
I have included this in the information...the images taken in 2005 come from my attempt at size-reduction. My Canon A 70 and a multitude of CF cards.
I will have a lot more to say about these, but for the time being, here are a few pictures. I have begun to craft a few words and a book of these images, much to the credit of Monica. In a nutshell, I began making images from a variety of places, and in spite of my reasons, I struggled with accepting the less than perfect negatives. But as of now, I have re-thought this. Perhaps there will be a lot more to say about WHY I made these images, but suffice it to say, I am very glad I have these pictures, and I have removed the restraints I placed on them. I have now, accepted the images as very good. Along with the words I have intended for these photographs, I am hoping much will make sense about these. I begin this voyage , but I want to share and understand a lot more about these images.
I have borrowed the title, or at least a variation on it from my mentor, Dan Powell at the University of Oregon.
I have added a few more paintings as I go along. I'm relatively sure that the folks at Weebly didn't know what they were in for as far as numbers! But I wanted to add as I went along. I have alerted folks to the particulars, but I will add captions 'in the future' with particulars about size and the like, and titles.
