Excess: Growing Beyond Means

This is a green plant which runneth over.  I am not sure what type of plant this is.  Three green berries sit outside as if fallen – maybe pondering and waiting.  The glass diamond bowl is simple and clear – yet heavy and thick.

Cat Tale

A cat in the window – tail out.  Cats have always been such a big part of the lives of humans.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  This bouquet was captured at the New England Flower show in Boston a couple of weeks ago.

Press Release

Photography Opening for Erik Eskedal at Christopher’s Cafe

Feb. 21, 2018, Lynn, MA – Christopher’s Café of Lynn, MA announces the return of photographer Erik Eskedal of Wakefield Ma., who will open his most current showing on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm., with wine and cheese from the cafe.  The public is welcome to attend.

Focused, first, on composition, Eskedal chooses not to manipulate the objects of his art so much as to awaken to the beauty in their natural, unfinished state.  Preferring randomness to perfection, Eskedal considers himself an “organic” artist.

“We first came to know Erik through his colleague who brought in some of his images for a combined showing of a few artists.  Laying out all the artists’ works, we placed the most interesting ones by different walls to hang, and realized most of the pieces we’d selected were Erik’s, so we would need to shuffle the deck a little to give more space to other artists.  That was when we realized that this photographer had something special,” explains café owner David Shalvoy.

Christopher’s Café, located at 2 Lewis St. in Lynn, regularly features local artists whom it considers to have distinguished themselves.  Its high ceilings, big glass windows, and odd angles lend to an airy space with varied lighting for an interesting display.  The café serves breakfast and lunch
Wednesday through Sunday until 2:30 pm.

Sea

Fine Art: The Ocean

This will be part of a series about the abstract Sea.

The white-capped foam-tops of the waves within the open sea – isolated, in white, against a deep dark background accentuate the feeling of the nature of the ocean.

Mountaintop

So many times, the clouds and patterns in the sky seem to mimick the shape of the land.  There is a science to this concept – as well as a fantasy and perception.

Exposure Composition

Inside a warehouse in Cranston, Rhode Island, these wires were exposed in a beautiful way.  The cords made great shapes with the empty shelf in the foreground.
