Another capture from my day at a little Utah museum.
I was the only person in museum that day for almost 3 hours!
Needless to say I saw a capture in every direction.
The titles for my captures are usually the first word (s) that pops into my mind when I see the composition.
This is also the way I put names to my paintings and drawings.

Thanks for viewing my art, comments are always welcome!

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work

    Oh my god Susan This is my favorite of all you’ve done. It resonates with me so powerfully. I remember pressure cookers, and how my mom used them to make her chili. I remember hanging out in the kitchen. How intensely sweet.

  • My mostest, bestest mamories come from kitchens like this…I believe I had an out of body experience that afternoon and was able to compose vivid recolection! Thanks Mr.Easy …LOL

    This reminds me so much of my dear departed grandparents kitchen. The old canner in the back reminds me of spending the day with my grandmother making homemade bread & butter pickles and canning them when I was a child.

    I love the way you have the wash bowl and pitcher in the foreground. Even the checkered tablecloth looks like home to me. :)

  • Hey you look familiar! Didn’t you just join my ZAZ fan club? I think I saw it flash by in my email…anyway…all this vintage stuff just seems to ground me! Thanks for viewing and your comment Sharon!

    I love it!!! I especially enjoy the pov on this one, with the pitcher in the foreground and the stove in the back. I’m slowly learning from your examples that you don’t have to include the whole object in order to get the point across – you do that so well! My natural inclination is to make sure I include the whole object but that’s not always the best idea as you have shown, especially well in this shot!

  • Abstract realism is the name of my game Ann…pretty much in all things…this shot is totally right brain as we all know what a pitcher looks like and a table and chair…right brain distorts sometimes to present a clear picture…I supposte that was clear as mud!!! LOL
