** A Note:

As you can see, when reading the Artwork Description, this is a Mixed Media art piece. Well, to be quite honest, as I always try to be with everyone, I am not exactly choosing the medium for which the individual art pieces are created: The amount of various types of art supplies I have, is what decides what is used for each new art piece.  That is just the way it is for me right now, but I have hope that things change for the better. 🙂

I want to wish you a good day and hope that you take something positive and energetic away with you, from my photography/art-blog; and that it encourages creativity inside of you.

You can see this original painting at my Saatchi Art Artist’s Portfolio Gallery, at this link:


I came from the…

I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn’t interest me… there were things you could do with a camera that you couldn’t do with any other medium… grain, contrast, blur, cock-eyed framing, eliminating or exaggerating grey tones and so on. I thought it would be good to show what’s possible, to say that this is as valid of a way of using the camera as conventional approaches. – William Klein

I love this quote – I share the essence of this wholeheartedly and try to do the many things that Klein mentions in this quotation. Looking at the craft of photography from outside the normal rules is a good challenge.
