What to do when the kids are at camp?

The simple answer here is….. GO TO YOUR BEACH HOUSE!

The kids are away and now it is time for you to kick up your feet and head to utopia at the beach. July 4th weekend is the unofficial kick off of summer and time for you to open the doors, take over the covers, put on the bikini and head to the beach.

Update your style whether it be the Hamptons, Nantucket or the Jersey Shore.. the best way to decorate is by bringing the outside in. To surround yourself with objects and images that make you feel serine.

Don’t want art that everyone else has? Offering limited editions of 18, a Peek Photo Art piece is a way to express your love of abstract art and photography.

Hope that you have a wonderful summer!

 

The Barn Series 1 of 4 | How to show the passage of time

On a Napa Valley I took this photo from the car. With fast shutter speed you avoid getting the blur. Nothing wrong with blur, in fact, most of my images are blurry on purpose to show the passage of time. Here in this image, by aging and distressing the image in post-production I am able to do the same.

I sold this image at my art show in NYC in March. It was my first solo show and thrilled with the turn out. The client that purchased the work is an art collector and was looking for original artwork in limited editions. The series of my work is either 36 or 18 per image and size, all are signed by the artist, moi.

What’s Color Got To Do With It?

Color is a big component of setting the mood of a room, no doubt. A cool color such as a pale grey gives the sense of calm and a bright red gives the sense of high energy. Same goes for the color of art work.

I work in photography and have the capability to change the color of my images to create complete different looks. Take for example the below sailboat image:

1763_Yellow Sailboat-Summer Breeze-3853-3858

The look is cool. I call this one “Spring Breeze” because I can sense a bit of a crispness to the air. This is the untouched image, direct from my camera. I then wanted to transform this image to something unique and different. Here is the result.

1763_Blue Sailboats

This is what I call “Summer Breeze”. It is the same file as the one above but here I have changed the colors creating an image that may not be realistic, which is ok, but it also changes the mood of the photo.

The Shell Game

Last summer I went to West Hampton Beach to visit my friend Nancy to take her portrait for her social media and marking materials. We had a lovely day driving around to a few fun location to take her photos. Then back to her place, she showed me her shell collection. Nancy loves to collect shells and I took lots of photos. I narrowed down the selection to these image which Nancy now has hanging in her home. These have become so special to her because not only does she love the images, they are part of personal shell collection.

Redwoods

Getting ready for my art show on March 2nd at Bene Rialto. The reception is open to the public and runs from 6pm-8pm. This is a photograph that I took while visiting Muir Woods National Monument outside of San Francisco, Ca.

“Light Leaks” is my take on my visit to the park, the beautiful trees.. the greens and browns..I reimagined to concentration on the warmth of the sun and adding a pink tonality and highlighted the blown out sun. In the photograph, you feel the sun’s warmth reaching out to you.
