Owl's Head Light

I got a few nice shots of Maine's lighthouses several years ago.  Owl's Head Light is one of my favorites.  It is only 20 feet high, but sits over 100 feet high on a cliff overlooking Rockland Harbor.  This was taken with my Minolta SLR on Kodachrome 64 slide film.

Calla Lilies

I got these calla lilies for my wife while she was recuperating from surgery.  They were lit by the natural light coming in through the window.

These happy cows were photographed in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, not too far from where the Little League World Series is played.  Minolta SLR on Kodachrome 64 slide film.

Paisley Bandit Tattoo

Sometimes ideas just pop into my scattered brain out of the clear blue.  This is one of those times.  Although I don't have any tattoos myself, I really have fun designing them.  The Paisley Bandit would be a serious challenge for the tattoo artist because of the reverse design on the kerchief.

Sunset on Lums Pond

This sunset was one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen.  And while I love this shot, it still doesn't do that amazing sky justice.  Lums Pond is a State Park located in New Castle, Delaware.  It is one of my favorite places to look for photo opportunities.

Beatles Faces

This caricature of the Beatles faces was originally a paper sculpture, but I never got a decent photo of it.  I scanned the original sketches and messed around with it a little in Photoshop.  Nothing fancy, but I like the black and white.

I did this paper sculpture before Finding Nemo hit the movie screens.  It was on display in an art gallery that was about 5 doors down from a movie theater.  So when Nemo was released, this one sold the same day!

Media Courthouse

My first gallery showing for my paper sculptures was in Media, PA.  The gallery owners wanted me to do a few pieces from the area in Media.  This paper sculpture of the Media Courthouse was one of them.  There are some intricate cuts here, especially the lettering and moldings.  The shadows were worked into the cuts.

Steampunk Butterflyfish

Here is my butterflyfish pendant sporting some old industrial bling.  It is made of polymer clay, watch parts and a brass rod.  I tried something new with my faux wood technique and it turned out pretty well.  Some aging was added to the gears by hitting them with a flame and the brass rod used for the pipes was found in an old hobby shop and already had a little patina to it.

Azalea Manipulation

Here is the pink azalea manipulated in Photoshop so that only the pink blossoms keep their color.  I think pink and gray look great together!

Spring is right around the corner, so here are some colorful azalea blossoms after a rain to get you in the mood.
