Chocorua Chapel Mindscape

Chocorua Chapel Mindscape

This color montage of the Chocorua chapel in Tamworth NH includes elements of photography and watercolor painting. When I took the original image of this chapel it was getting dark and I stood and watched the changing scene as darkness descended upon the little valley at the base of the Chocorua Range in Tamworth, New Hampshire. Many of the images that I captured that evening have become images that sell regularly and well. However, nothing captured the pure simplicity of the ridge, the chapel and the road. This image is a photo montage that includes elements from 4 different images, created as a monochrome and then hand-painted with watercolors. The image is then scanned for production in a signed limited edition of only 5 images. I do not sell the base image from which the scanned output is derived because the watercolors fade too quickly and the image would loose its impact. Instead, the painted image is destroyed to protect the value of the limited editi…

Light Fades on Broadacres Farm, Jefferson, NH

Daylight fades on Broadacres Farm in Jefferson, New Hampshire at Broadacres farm in Jefferson, NH. I waited as the daylight faded to capture this moment. The blurring of the background was enhanced from the actual depth of field because I felt it added to the focus on the key elements.

Storm Over Newfound Lake - Two Views

Below is an example of a treatment of an image that yielded two different works of art both beautiful in their own way.

The first image "Late Summer Storm Over Newfound Lake" is a straight color image captured at just the right moment to freeze a moment in time as a storm sweeps up the lake from the south. The last few boats still on the lake add depth and just a splash of color to the scene.

The second image (below) is painted with watercolors to make the sky more full with clouds and color. The negative space of the sky in the first image conveys more loneliness, while the second conveys more drama.

Both images are available for purchase in original signed editions as well as open edition prints, posters cards and products. Click on the caption below each image to view a larger version of each and to place an order.

First Colors of Fall - Wind in the Maple

As I walked Boof, our Siberian Husky, along the railroad bed nearby two days ago,  I came upon this Maple bursting forth with the first colors of fall. I captured the image and manipulated it to create the image you see below.

Blurring the Colorline

Blurring the Colorline:

In the view of W.E.B. Dubois "the profound interior work of who we are creates ever-present challenges - Rich, complicated and not always resolved." This “photoexpressionist mindscape” celebrates diversity and the capability of all of us to rise above - and purposefully blur - the colorlines that divide us while still celebrating that which we bring to the great tapestry of life.
