XP-Pen Artist 22E Review

Were any of you out there expecting an XP-Pen Artist 22E review? Probably  not! Especially since I posted earlier this year that I had gotten an XP-Pen Artist 16. So, it only seems fair to explain how I went from talking about a completely … Read More

What’s In A Name?

New Domain Name What’s in a name? A question written by Shakespeare and uttered by his character, Romeo, centuries ago, but it still has psychological meaning today! For me, there was a growing block with doing anything with my website. Eight years ago when … Read More

What It Means to Be an Artist

Why do some photographers not consider themselves artists? This is seriously a question that haunts me some days. If I had a nickle for every time I encountered a photographer in various art forums who wanted to be strictly styled as a photographer rather … Read More

Art Contest Results

Well, anything profound I had to say about art contests I got out of the way in the last update! So, this should be mercifully short.  Round one ended this evening and my photo from Galway Ireland which had the most votes for my … Read More

Art Contests – Oh My

For a period of time, I was ever interested in art contests. I enjoyed participating in a few real world ones early on, but I’ve largely bowed out of the process. Partially this is because so many contests these days, particularly the ones you … Read More

2012 – Year In Review

Wow, I can’t believe we are days away from the end of 2012. What’s more, I can’t believe I’m not traveling somewhere! This will be my first New Years in the US since I rang in 2005 in Edinburgh. Those New Year trips were … Read More

The Victims in Aurora, Colorado

Normally a post like this would be directed to my personal blog, but you’ll see in a moment why I’m posting it here. Friday morning, I awoke to the news like we all did of the shooting at an Aurora movie theater during the … Read More

The Magic of Finished Projects

Wow, I wish I had the words to illustrate the elation of finishing a long-standing project, but right now, I’m failing to come up with anything descriptive enough! It’s not hard to believe it was only last year that I started re-visiting the work … Read More

Bon Voyage 2011

As many of you know, I’ve been hard at work revisiting all the work in my print collections. Gallery by gallery, I’ve been re-editing work where I felt necessary (which for me is the fun part) and then deciding what prints to include in … Read More

A Year of Pictures Later

It’s been several days now since my 365 project ended. Quite a mixture of feelings seeing it come to a conclusion. First, having been sick a couple of times during this project, there’s a slight bit of relief.  I was actually sick enough at … Read More

My Website is a Triplicate

Howdy Everybody! I figured I would have had some Mexico blog posts with photos and short tales by now but I have gotten side-tracked on some website maintenance along the way. And you know how those type tasks seem to balloon! And balloon is an appropriate … Read More

March Already?

Amazing how quickly time can pass by isn’t it? I can’t believe I haven’t made an update since returning from Mexico. Very lame of me! Although I guess it could well be that there’s not a load of announcements to make as another winter … Read More

Prints Changes

I only seem to be blogging changes to my site as of late, and for that I apologize. Hopefully with this last piece of the puzzle now in place, I can get back to working more on the art side of things.  You can … Read More

Creating Photo Art

Although “plain” photography is my first love, I have also been branching out into photo art the past year or so. I am forever amazed at what a difference layering on different textures can make between a photo’s start and end. This is my … Read More

Awards and Fun, Oh My!
