Provincetown, MA. Another image with little context. How much context is needed? I'm interested in stripping away all but the essence of an image.

Three steps

...or three states. Solid, liquid, gas. No plasma in sight, however. (And what's jello, anyway? A solid? Oh, no, wait... it's proteins suspended in liquid. Colloid. Although when I was growing up it was canned pineapple suspended in lime green jiggles.)
As for the image, I liked the contrast of the rocks to the water, and the stark shadows versus the somewhat out-of-focus water.

The windchimes aren't a separate audio track -- they were in the moment, yet to me sound like another layer above the sound of the leaves. If it were a longer clip, I think the audio could work alone. To me, it's very calming.

Bird on a Wire

I was trying to get the bird that was sitting on the telephone wire. The other bird flying through the shot was just a happy accident.

Charles River, Winter

There's something about having context stripped away, leaving just the essence of the pattern or color

Toulouse 2008.
I liked the red against the grassy background,and the bit of moss growing on the top.

Cardboard Quilt

Here's a quilt on my desk. What do you do when you have paint chips that are sticky on one side? You make something. Paint chips on black matboard 2006. Desk 2008. (OK, why do they make sticky paint chips, anyway?)


This is a detail of a larger painting. I'm not sure when or how the fire hydrant theme started, but this may have been the first one. This is from 2002 or 2003.
