The Artist is Always In
I am far less tired these days. Thanks for all the support! I am embarrassed to have to cross promote, but I have a number of web presences. If someone were to actually need me to refrain from taking a vacation all they would have to do is tell me they noticed no new work last month and my site documents new work with a handy freshness date stamp. First months new products are always labeled fresh for 30 days. Note: this does not mean if i work a lot hERE: that i mean to get google's attention with the term "fresh". But if by coinikydink it happens, I will prolly tell yah, about it.

Visit The Flowers on Everything Collection
This collection tags everything with the name of a flower in the title and since I have a thing for flowers here, it is quite big (over 6000 products and counting) and set to random display. There is almost nothing I carry that I will not put flowers on. If you send me flowers, I will photograph them and put them on things too. That may be challenging for most of you since you barely recall I live in Illinois. For now, you'll just have to buy something FROM me, and then I can buy my own flowers for more artworks. Besides, customers are almost never prosecuted for stalking to find mailing addresses. Happy Valentines Day! follow the distractions to the view collection button below.
Featured collection: Printed Zippo Lighters
These items do not ship outside the USA.
Pattern and Random Are The Spice of Design
Flowers have a natural pattern complex enough to often seem random. Intentions hide in the best designs as visual balance allows your eyes to see the world in a new way. In my artwork I like to experiment with the mirrored spirals of the geometric kaleidoscope, which often reminds me of the tiny spirals found on macro flower photographs. Kaleidoscopes bring order to chaos. I often start with florals, or large abstract base images before I create the kaleidoscopes.

Featured collection: Vintage Travel Art
View the background info on the vintage travel photos by viewing the video project I have started where readings of my grandmother's detailed travel journals are paired with the images they took and the paintings that she later produced upon their returns home. They went on tours that were approximately a month long at least 5 times between 1967 1971 followed by two or three trips to mexico after that. They not only left three handwritten journals, two typed, but 15 trays of slides that have already been scanned.
My Father was on the 1968 and 1973 and is currently assisting with some informational direction. I also use some of his photography work.
The work I do to them for use on products takes anywhere from moments to hours. Sometimes I add a brush layer of flights of birds, sometimes i smudge brush new clouds and repaint the sky. I spend at least a few minutes removing spots after every scan as many had been in poor condition. detail filters were applied on many as well. For artistic purposes paint and smoothing texture filters have created a print art look that appeals to me as I hope it may to some of you.
In all cases recognizable faces at a distance of less than 40ft approximate have been removed from the image using the heal tool unless it was my grandparents themselves. I would like to request any help on identifying places seen in the videos or artwork be sent via the contact page on this website, or firstname.lastname@example.org View The Vintage Travel Journals Video Blog
