Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones  was made from photos shot in the fast flowing and slippery rock bottom of Brush Creek near Sarasota Wyoming.  The edges of the single photographs become bulges at the edges of the full panorama.  The big bulge is when I slipped a bit off the side of a rock.

Dune Grasses

I make ceramic prints on clay. Even though I use screens to make my work, there is such variation in the process going to a finished piece that each work is a monoprint.  Typically I make one finished piece from my screens and then recycle them to move on to print my next image.  At the request of a client, I just remade “Dune Grasses” in a smaller size.  I retain my digital files of each photo image and am able to redo in the same or altered size and color.

This image is a 360 degree panorama of the dunes along Horseneck Beach between Baker’s and Westport Town Beach. Below are some of the 25 steps I do to make finished piece.

Dunes Horseneck Beach

Between the ocean and the parking lot there is a small fragile world to get lost in here at the State Beach in Westport, Massachusetts.
