Blue Day

The “Blue Day” on the lakefront. The water and sky was straight out of the tube that day

More Sunlight at Upper Park

When the sun is at about 10 O’Clock high, the sparks fly. This is “Upper Park” on Lake Michigan in Port Washington.
Framed in a 19×24″ light, brushed grey – $200

Looking Up

The challenge in “Looking Up” was to convey a backlit maple that was slightly wet


“One Cold Hand” – I spent the winter focusing on lighting and shadows. This was the best result. The dog found the glove in the park on a cold winter’s day.


“The Whistler” – Another favorite after studying shadows. This one from spotlighting efforts. This very loud teakettle was Ted’s – found at a thrift store. It’s marked “Mirro Company” on the bottom. Made in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.


“The Empty Chair” – these cast shadows have to be seen to try to emulate. You can’t make them up. Strong afternoon sun makes the coolest shadows.


“Sanibel Sundown” is portraying lowlight, putting the sandy beach into darkness and the sandpipers making their individual shadows before all the light is lost


“Tulip Royalty” – This bunch displays backlighting – made from a lamp on a dreary February day. Tulips from Pick and Save – $5
