You can now see more than 25 different Limited Edition Art Series images on my website. Each one is limited to just 50 16"X20" premium gallery canvas prints that come ready to hang and brighten up your day. These just pop right off the canvas and look better in person than on here. Actual artwork will not have text.
Spending a lot of time with BeFunky. I am really enjoying the program and the creativity it has sparked. I am finding life in photos that I liked but didn't LOVE. Here is another collage project and some photos I have been working on. I am putting together a new Art Series by Trayson Conner Photography and really just having fun with these. Contact me if you'd like to purchase a print.
In preparing for an upcoming art show next month, I was asked to make a 4 photo collage to go to the local art association newsletter. I had never made a collage before and I had a deadline of "NOW". I know one can be made in Photoshop or Lightroom but I needed something with a much shorter learning curve. After watching a few how to videos on YouTube, I decided to look online for an alternative. I found Collage Maker by BeFunky. I had a great collage spit out in under 5 minutes and that include hunting down my photo file on my computer.
The upcoming show is at the beautiful, new, micro EB Gallery in OKC on February 2nd from 6-9PM.
Here is a great read from one of my favorite people, Sir Richard Branson. He talks about being in the moment and being happy instead of doing things to make us happy. Here are his tips for happiness for 2018. I have always found Sir Branson to be approachable but this one statement really says to me who I think he is. This is something I really need to learn this year.
I know I’m fortunate to live an extraordinary life, and that most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me happiness. But they haven’t; in fact it’s the reverse. I am successful, wealthy and connected because I am happy.
First Friday Art Walk in the Paseo District is tomorrow night from 6-10PM. I will be showing at the Prairie Arts Collective, a cute little studio gallery where owners Shawn and Patrick Patterson create and sell custom stained glass pieces. The shop is full of eccentric fun wares for your home with lots of local artwork among the treasures. Both Shawn and Patrick are so much fun. They are truly a happy people.
I will be displaying some new works printed on metal along with some classic favorites.
What started out as a trip to a small mountain bar photo shoot in Green Mountain Falls Colorado, turned out to produce one of my most popular images. This is going way back to May of 2008. The band Creating a Newsense hired me to go shoot photos of the Pine Gables Tavern, the bar that they had recently played and recorded in. When I pulled into the parking lot, I was greeted with this scene. It was straight out of a movie in my head.
This is unedited, straight out of the camera. This is what I saw. As I moved around for different angles and shots, someone started to notice me. I however didn't notice until I was home later and looking at all the images. Some of you may recognize the truck. You can barely see the passenger that has become the star of the image I call "Dog Days".
