Wonky

Just a quick note … looks like our platform / server – thingie went wonky again and my images included in previous posts as well as a recent blog went off to see the wizard.  We’re seeing about bringing things back up to snuff … and in the meantime, I really am working on … well … I’m working on disciplining myself to attend to the blog more regularly.

No excuse not to do so, except that it’s not in my routine.  I’m a creature of habit.   An apparently lazy creature of habit.

Several great new things in the works happening photography-wise for little me which I’ll be discussing here in the near future.

In the meantime, here’s one of my latest uploads to Fine Art America and elsewhere … just click the image to be taken to a full size version (with a less icky watermark).

This is a re work of an image I posted some time ago.  As we evolve as artists, sometimes we like to go back to old favorite images and give them a new twist.  They may be favorites because of subject matter or light or color ... or sometimes just because of the wonderful memories the images themselves evoke.  This one represents all those reasons for me. As I described on the original image, this is a beautiful street in Old Corfu Town, Greece, on a wonderfully hot and sleepy afternoon in July of 2005. Looking closely, you can see the tourists heading our way from down the street while the vendors patiently wait. Original photographic image treated to some painterly magic in Photoshop and Corel Painter 11 and a lovely texture from French Kiss added to finish it off.
