Picasso at the Oud St. Jan Museum – Bruges

Sometime ago, I had the lucky opportunity to wander alone through the rooms of these drawings in Bruges. A small but significant, highly interesting exhibit of Picasso's  drawings. As always, there's a lot of wit, and what amazed me was the ability to say so much with so few strokes of the pen. It's here that a drawing of mine was on exhibit in December 2018. After leaving here, it's going to a yoga institute in Bruges for two months, on sale. After that, if not sold, it has another beautifu...

Cloud Giclee Art Prints and Prices

Cloud Photographs as Meditative ToolsIt was Bernie Nelson who first detected - in a book review - that I use clouds as a meditative tool. Bernie has just passed away; I will miss his perceptive ability to tie together the clouds and my text on consciousness. But people have long, in fact probably since there were humans, been staring at the clouds and feeling their mood change, feeling themselves a part of nature; seeing faces, images, Some say that a great guru can project images into the cloud...

Cloud Photography Interview of Me

This link will take you to a brand-new interview with me that explains how I got interested in photographing clouds.

Also on this web page, you will see a display of some of my cloud photographs, which are for sale or available for exhibit. Let me know what you think.

Fractal

The irregularity of the cloud first got my attention. In the original shot, the white in the center was so bright you couldn't see the sun. Then when the negative was drum scanned, the sun became visible. But the image then got darker. When first developed, in film, unscanned, the irregular edges were very bright. In digital format, I'm now juggling to keep the sun visible while trying to recover some of the bright light around it without blowing out the sun itself. In experimenting with lig...
