New Video! Falling Into Winter

The older I get, the more I appreciate autumn.  This video is a 2+ minute photo montage, with an original soundtrack featuring Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata theme (played and recorded by me using my Yamaha MX88), and some novel effects.  With over 80 images, the video is a celebration of a beautiful time of year, as photographed in and around Marin County over several seasons.

What Am I Doing Here?

 Repainted portrait of young Lucy time traveling forward to land at Drakes Beach.  Somehow the expression raises the question, "what am I doing here?"

Kitty Cats and the Mountain Lion - new Oil Painting

 New Oil on Stretched Belgian Linen 28 x 22 x 1/1/4.  Using a reference photo of the Nicasio reservoir and an old photo of Amber, shot in Texas, it made sense to add a mountain lion.

Having Fun with Photoshop Neural Filters

Photoshop has a new feature where you can run an image through a filter to make it look like another style of art.  Top:  Sam in Greece with a neural filter from an old "at the beach" watercolor.  Bottom three: I took a photo of two roses in a blue vase, and ran that through a filter of an original fabric design, done in illustrator, of a Paenibacillus bacteria, and ended up with the 2nd to top image.  Endless possibilities!  So many ways to avoid housework!

It Rained Too Much at One Time!

Power lines down, streets closed, creeks close to overflowing; creeks which were completely empty one week ago.  Exciting taking photos in the storm (2nd from top pic shows rain falling, bottom shows drops on the window.) Mother nature is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
