On the Easel

Today’s On The Easel is an infant’s portrait in natural light.

Very small infants are absolutely lovely while they observe their world around them –

I love how they embody their innocence, essential energy, and innate purity.

On the Easel

Today on The Easel, I have a contemplative photograph with subtle and elemental symbols that show something different each time you look at it. This ballet of shape and pattern occurred during a moment teaching photography on a snowy day on the far side of Chicago:

a reason you always carry some form of camera, and take time to watch what is above you as well.

Bird on A Roof is 20″ x 30″, and made from fine watercolor paper with a deckle (torn) edge. Choose my neutral frame here, a different size, or an unframed version.

If you are interested in purchasing my art images for yourself or others, contact me for details. I love to see my photos in other people’s homes.
