The Beetles...

Not those beatles. These beetles!

On the Road Again

Peter thinks it always rains when we move paintings

Last week we delivered paintings to the Miller Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Ten beautiful paintings moved out to the midwest looking for a home. With the help of the really great people at the Miller Gallery, they should find one.

Peter couldn't contain his excitement standing with a George Inness painting, his hero

A quick stop at the Cincinnati Museum of Art before we headed home, revealed all sorts of hidden treasures. It is a beautiful small museum that is worth a visit if you find yourself in southwestern Ohio, or northern Kentucky.

I had never seen this Van Gogh and just loved it!

Start a Blog!

The Marie Zimmerman Estate in the DWGNRA is a beautiful place for a walk

I've been a bit lazy with my blog. Summer and my ceramic sculpture explorations have taken precedence. It's time to start actively posting again. I have a few more photos from my walk at the Marie Zimmerman Estate in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area that I will be sharing in the next week or so.

The blog has been a great project for me to focus on my photography and discover what is of visual interest to me. It forces me to look and photograph at times I might not have. In the past, I always took photos, but they just went into a folder and I never did anything with them. Now it's been fun to go back and study what makes a photo a good photo and how to manipulate it in Photoshop to make it even better.

It's hard to believe that this is my 120nd posting. The blog has been a great tool for learning and a great tool for doing -- I strongly recommend starting one!
