About This Image

It’s hard to look at this photo and believe that it’s set amidst a city of millions. But this stretch of the Chattahoochee River in Roswell has remained pretty idyllic and feels removed from the urban expanse of Atlanta. One morning as I wandered the banks of the river, I lucked upon this lady sitting quietly and taking in the beauty of nature at sunrise. A picture of the river and that great golden light would have been quite pretty on its own. But this woman, who we only see in silhouette, gives the viewer a frame of reference, a way to imagine themselves into this peaceful print.

That’s part of the power of a good silhouette image, the ability to draw the viewer into the actual scene. There’s also kind of a zen magic to silhouettes, the deconstruction of a moment. We’ve subtracted some details but left behind the most important ones. The story of a silhouette image becomes more about shapes, colors and lighting than minute details. Those elements are always important of course, but in a print like this even more so.

Can you imagine yourself in the zen and restful moment in this golden print? Don’t you feel the quiet contemplation and the warm morning sun on those river banks? I know that I can! This is the sort of landscape print that transcends location. I’m sure people who have a fondness for the Chattahoochee and a Georgia landscape might have a little extra feeling of connectedness when they look at this. But that intimate connection is far from mandatory! Don’t you agree?

So, have you in fact walked those same river banks in Roswell? Or are you in the camp who simply loves the golden light in this silhouette print?

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
