If you follow the blog and are in the Fredericksburg area, first of all, I’m sorry. I know it’s been ages. I just got done hanging a show at Kybecca Wine Bar and Shop in downtown Fredericksburg. The show is hanging all of May and June, so there’s plenty of time to get out and see it. I’d love to hear what you think!
If you’ve just been to the show, and are here for the first time, welcome, and thanks for stopping by! Please, stay a while and take a look around.
And unfortunately, my work is coming off the walls! I’ve really had a great time showing my work at FoodE for the past three months, but all good things must come to an end! All of the pieces from the show will still be available for sale, and maybe I’m biased, but I think they would make pretty darn good presents for the upcoming Holiday Season. We’ll be showing again next June at Kybecca, but until then, please keep up with the project here!
One of the true luxuries of shooting an artistic side project is getting to be choosey about your light. These two images were shot just after sunrise on an overcast morning.
While waiting to have coffee with my good friend Larry this morning, I shot a panoramic of the parking lot behind the Princess Anne Building. I’m not particularly fond of super long panos, but I like the effect it has here. This is a combination of about 20 images.
Some of my favorites images include reflections, and this one is no exception. Here’s a quick photography tip for you…when trying to capture a reflection, the closer your lens is to the reflective surface, the more vibrant and detailed the reflection will be. I may or may not have gotten my camera a bit wet in the making of this picture. That’s right…I bleed for my art.
Geoff and I did some walking about to take advantage of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having lately. Don’t forget to go visit FoodE! The show’s up for about six more weeks, so you’ve got no excuses!
I always wanted to find out who owned Fredericksburg Hardware and ask them if I could use the interior of the building for a grungy portrait session. I guess I missed my chance. To see what it looked like back in the day (and by back in the day, I mean last year) check here. Perhaps one of the new tenants would care to purchase a print?
Last night was First Friday, and the official opening of my first solo show in Fredericksburg! Beth and Joy, the owners of Foode, and their entire staff, were so incredibly gracious and wonderful to me, my friends and everyone that came out to the show that I really can’t thank them enough. Beth and Joy have been huge supporters of this project from the very beginning, and I’m really touched to be displaying my work in their restaurant. The show will be up for two months, so please, go see it and stay for a wonderful meal. For those of you who came out to the show last night, a million thanks! I couldn’t have been more pleased by the crowd we got, and how receptive everyone was to the project.
