About the Book
I wanted to share some of my fine art work. I am known for my technical expertise, but I feel that technique with out feeling is usually meaningless. Technique ought to be in the service of visual communication, whether commercial or beautiful or both.
The images in this book are from the beach, buildings, beings and beauty: four Bs. I hope that they will invite you to make your own images.
The images in this book were done over many years and evoke deep feelings for me. There has been a lot of involuntary time travel as I assembled these images. I hope that they will be meaningful for you. I hope this book will help to open your own vision.
Please consider supporting my work by purchasing this book. Since this is privately printed I will know of each sale. This is really an attempt at a more personal sharing. Thank you for your attention.
