Welcome to my occasional update of news and notes, perfectly timed to be enjoyed within a standard red light cycle...
Oregon has been a favorite destination since visiting there often with the folks on family vacations. As a landlocked lover of the sea, memories of the rugged coastline inspire to return every chance I have. And so begins another road trip, a new route laid out in support of my informal truth to not follow the same road twice.
An unexpected upside will be at the Black Box Gallery in Portland. With fortunate timing my image seen here, “Denver Lines” has been selected to hang in their current show Focus: Shadow and Light.
Before and after Portland will be travels through eastern Oregon, Corvallis to Newport to Seaside, and back along the Columbia River valley. As always..looking forward to the unknown ahead!
What are your favorite places to photograph around Oregon?
By chance if you're anywhere near northeastern Colorado this weekend come check out the Phillips County Arts Council Arts Show in Holyoke! Besides being my first show entry and "photo safari" of the spring, the weekend is also a welcome chance to spend time with great old friends from my teaching days. Win win.
Photographs this year include (from top) Schoolhouse Crop, @Marker 653.2 (limited edition #2 of 25), and Americana.
I've started this "blog" so many times, and each time begins with new enthusiasm. Can't you tell? This time, for sure!
Obviously I hope soon this post will be buried in the archive. If you're one of the first to see, as a reward for being among the few, just ask and you may receive a fine art print of any image on my website! Message for details...
Thanks for the visit!
