The Red Railroad Car – Featured Art Print

 

The Red Railroad Car – is a wall art print I created using a colored pencil sketching technique to create this look. This technique uses strong, but narrow diagonal lines with bright colors.

The setting is an old train car located along a path in Rockford, Michigan. The train looks like it might have been used as a diner at some point, but now sits abandoned. Thoughts?

Forest Sunlight on Moss Covered Boulders – Excerpts From a Photo Shoot

The attached photographs are from a hiking trail near North Bend, Washington. The trail is called Lil Si and is just 4.1 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 1300 ft. It’s a beautiful trail through some very dense forest vegetation. When I came across these moss-covered boulders with the sunlight coming through the canopy, the term “photo shoot” sang out to me.


The first shot is the trail itself. Notice the sun shining on the boulder at the top portion of the frame….this was the first indication of what I was about to see up ahead.


For this next shot, I zoomed in on the moss-covered rock from the first picture.


The rest of the moss-covered rock captures were all taken within feet of each other. It was truly a stunning scene.

Thoughts?

The Saguaro Against The Sky – Featured Art Print

The Saguaro Against The Sky is a color photograph wall art print of a red rock outcropping and a Saguaro Cactus. The setting is Tortilla Flats located east of Phoenix, Arizona in the Superstition Mountains.

The usage of color photography as a wall art print lends itself to many different types of interior design, from contemporary to traditional. I think what dictates the look is the subject matter of the photograph and the manner in which it is framed and matted.

Scorpion Gulch – Excerpts From a Photo Shoot

I posted excerpts from a photo shoot that I did with my daughter a couple of weeks ago (Heritage Square: Phoenix, Arizona). As a continuation of that day this photo shoot was another stop we made. Scorpion Gulch is in South Mountain Park at the base of the mountain. The minute we came across this, we knew we had to stop. Scorpion Gulch was a store built in 1936 by William Lunsford. He also built his residence right next door. The property is located on Central Ave and is the main road to go into South Mountain Park on your way up to the summit. The buildings were first listed on the historic preservation register in 1990. For more information, click the Scorpion Gulch link to Wikipedia.


The first shot is the store itself. Located to the right of this structure is the remnant of the residence, which is the focus of this photo shoot.

Scorpion Gulch Store built in 1936 at the base of South Mountain Park in Phoenix, Arizona. The owner also built his residence which is located to the right of the store. The property was listed in the Historical Preservation Registery in 1990.

The second picture is the front of the residence. Notice the castle-like turret on the left. I love the stonework and the attention he gave to detail.

The next capture gives you an idea of the condition of the walls and obviously there isn’t a roof any more.

The building stretches back and around giving you unique angles and views. The wall on the right (which is really not in the shot) is the back of the fireplace on the next shot.

I fell in love with this fireplace; can you believe the size of it and the detail of the rock? As an enclosed room, I am sure it was stunning.

This and the rest of the shots are taken from the same spot, just rotating to my right. I am back at the front of the property with the store on my immediate left and the front of the house on my immediate right. The house stretches back on the right and then juts out in front of us creating a large “L”. I would assume this was a type of courtyard in its day. If you look back through the window and doorway combo on the middle right, you can see the fireplace from the prior shot.

This picture gives you a better perspective of just how far back the house goes. On the extreme right of the frame is the base to the castle turret we saw in the capture of the front of the house.

This last one looks back towards the front of the house with a very large and old Saguaro Cactus framing the shot.

The Harbor – Featured Art Print

This art print was created using a fauvism (Fauvism: a style of painting with vivid expressionistic and non-naturalistic use of color that flourished in Paris from 1905) technique of a harbor at dusk. This technique uses abstract shapes and variations of colors to create a unique look.
The setting is Victoria Harbour in British Columbia. The fishing boats are docked for the night, just as dusk settles in. Thoughts?
