Best of Show

















On Sunday, February 21, I was honored with the Best of Show award at the seventh annual Lincoln Hills Arts Association Fine Arts Show for the second year in a row. Amongst a field of many other extremely talented and accomplished artists, it is truly an honor. Thank you to everyone who voted for me as your favorite artist of the show, which as always, was elegantly produced and very well attended. I was exhibiting four photos; "Montgomery Woods" (pictured here) sized 40X55, "Bishop Creek at Sunrise" sized 30X40, "Pacifica Sunset I" and "Pacifica Sunset II" both sized 22X28. These photos and others are available for viewing at my website outdoorscenics.com.

My Photo of the Week: Good Morning Sunshine










Last weekend, we finally got a couple of sunny days. After weeks of rain in winter, the hills and fields turn richly green. After driving several back roads around Lincoln/Newcastle, on and off of Highway 193, I was headed back home around 8:30 in the morning, and I saw this alpaca watching the road. I stopped, parked on the side of the road, set up my camera by the fence and spent about 10-15 minutes taking pictures. Oddly, I felt like I was an animal in a zoo, and the alpaca was curiously watching me do tricks. It was the look on his face as well as warm, high contrast sunlight, and complimentary colors of green, orange, and blue that caught my attention.
