Hear a little song


“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister’s: Apprenticeship and Travels

Guanajuato Callejon

Kyle and I leave tomorrow for our beloved town of Guanajuato, Mexico where we will get to experience, for our first time, the world renowned music and art festival, Cervantino. To say we are excited would be a bit of an understatement. More to come about this adventure I’m sure…

Being Nice and Doing Good with Colectivo TAN 473

Kyle and I are missing our second home and the subject of my new Reliquaries series, Guanajuato, Mexico, a lot this year. Not because of the foot of snow and single digit temperatures here in Kansas City, but because of our beautiful friends there that are doing good work. Since this year we can’t be there to volunteer, we were hoping that you could lend a hand by Being Nice and Doing Good. Find out the campaign details to win free artwork.

What can you win this month besides the smiles on some precious faces? This!

update (3/5): This month’s winner has been selected. Congratulations Bruce!

Reliquaries

A new series of photogravures.

 

In the cobbled streets, colonial plazas, and alleyways of Guanajuato, Mexico, I feel the presence of those who have walked before me.

Colorful Guanajuato

Kyle and I are back in Guanajuato, Mexico for our little winter warm up.

 

And I have to admit, our entry has been a little tougher this year. Not only because we are missing our friends Cheri and Allen desperately, but also because we both arrived with expectations this year. Both of us have pretty serious amounts of work that we would like to accomplish while we are here. I am shooting a new series for photo-gravure to be displayed at the Perlow-Stevens Gallery this summer, and Kyle has a lot of work to do on his pedal-steel guitar.

And isn’t it precisely these moments when life has a way of throwing a wrench in the system? Continue reading »

I love your cans

Thanks to everyone that came out to the Love Rust show last week. What a great time! Our neighborhood, Columbus Park, is the best, isn’t it!?

 

I had so much fun sharing images from my photographic sketchbook, and sharing everything I learned at Hallmark about photographing flowers, that I thought I would share some more with you. These are some of my favorites of the ubiquitous jalapeno cans in Guanajuato, Mexico that were outside of the scope of the Love Rust show. Continue reading »
