Appreciation

Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

FINE ART UNLIMITED OPEN EDITON

A whitebark pine overlooks Wizard Island and Crater Lake at sunset in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon.

I spent a weekend at Crater Lake National Park showing some images in an art show and doing some preliminary legwork for my pending Artist-in-Residency in October of 2014. I'm very excited to spend two weeks at the park exploring the nooks and crannies and totally immersing myself in nature. I've never spent that much time out with no agenda and no distractions, let alone in a single place. I feel very fortunate to receive the appointment as only four people per year are awarded with the opportunity.

This was also the first multi-day nature outing I had taken with my son Elliott... who was six years old. His patience and good behavior with sitting at the art show from 10am-5pm and then waiting around for sunsets, hiking, and my 'photography rules' (Don't touch that!, Stand over there!, Don't kick up dirt!, Stay away from the camera!, etc..) astounded me. I won't lie.. there was a hefty amount of "How much longer?" and "Can we gooooooo?" but overall this kid handled himself very well.

I won't force it on him... but my hope is that someday he will grow to value nature the way that I do... that his interest in the art of photography continues to blossom... and that he will look back on these moments that we spend with appreciation, gratitude, and a desire for more.

This one is for you, buddy. I love you. Thanks for letting me be your dad.

Lumachrome Fine Art Prints • Acrylic Face-Mounted and Ready to Hang (Open Edition)

Premium Fine Art Lumachrome Prints are the epitome of elegance and quality. By face mounting the print to 1/8" thick scratch-resistant, non-reflective crystal clear acrylic and backing it with a protective surface and a 1.3" rear mounted frame, the print seemingly floats from the wall. The proprietary Lumachrome process in combination with the acrylic facing gives a depth, dimensionality, and glow to the image which is unmatched and needs to be seen to believed. These pieces are museum quality, absolutely stunning, and truly a collectors piece. Premium Fine Art Lumachrome Prints are ideal for galleries or private homes and with the proper lighting will take on a luminance that brings the photo to life. While these ready-to-hang pieces offer a modern, sleek, and clean appearance, traditional framing is also available and can be discussed one-on-one to pick the most appropriate frame for your piece.

Chromaluxe Fine Art Metal Prints • Ready to Hang (Open Edition)

If you are looking for a piece that combines durability with a modern and elegant look, I offer Premium Fine Art Metal Prints. Using a state-of-the-art process, the image is infused directly into the surface of specially coated aluminum which creates a scratch and fade resistant piece that is ready to hang without a frame. Metal prints contain a tremendous amount of depth, detail, and sharpness that will be sure to draw the viewer in. Since the image is fused directly into the aluminum, the resulting piece is scratch and water resistant and will resist fading or yellowing over time while at the same time being easy to clean. These are the ideal for offices and public spaces due to their durability.
