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

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!

Peace of the week, Jan 28

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey. –  Tad Williams

Watch for more photogravure images from Guanajuato throughout the spring as I prepare for my upcoming show.

Dancing (and more) in the streets

 

Guanajuato is full of surprises!

Last weekend within 200 yards of our house was a carnival, a marching band, a street car parade, and an Aztec ceremony of some sort in a church yard. For such a diminutive town Guanajuato can be quite a busy place! 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 »

Love Rust

Ever wonder what someone does for fun after they’ve turned their passion and what they did for fun into their work? Me too…

 

Guanajuato Cemetery

My fun looks a lot like my work and my work looks a whole lot like my fun. They both look like a lot of travel with a camera up to my face, and time in the studio experimenting with materials and techniques. However, they often feel distinctly different to me, like the difference between a sketch book and a canvas. Or maybe between listening and talking. Continue reading »
