Tadpole you’ve been metamorphosized, now you’re a Froglet, congratulations.
Forget the phrase “they breed like rabbits” a frog will lay 20,000 eggs, yes you heard me right 20,000 eggs, yikes.

I remember the feeling of peace and calm when I made this image at dawn. The quiet was accompanied by the chirps and songs of birds nearby and far away.
So it felt right when this image was selected by Jerri Menaul of Art Vitae for installation at the new cancer center, Florida Cancer Specialist & Research Institute in north Fort Meyers, Florida.
The interior space was a long wall between the administrative offices and exam rooms. While documenting the installation a number of staff and patients stopped to say how positive it was for them to have this beautiful and peaceful image in a place of medical treatment and healing. As an artist, knowing that the energy I put into creating an image has capability to connect with others and enhance their lives is a reward in and of itself.
I am a seeker and keeper of stories using visual poetry to observe the ordinary in hopes of seeing the humanity that points toward our oneness.
A constant in my photographic work is observing life and communicating those observations with images. I am excited to participate in the current competition being sponsored by Lens Culture. The theme is Street Photography. Here are the five images I’ve submitted.
Artists who opened their studios today, Jan. 6, 2016 as part of the Sarasota Visual Artists Studios.
Other artist who participated but who I was unable to visit include:
Jorge Blanco, Bill Buchman, Tim Jaeger, Joseph Melancon, Tom Stephens.
The Open Studio Series is the 1st Saturday of the month January-April 11am-4pm.
This was a wonderful chance to see the Artists studios and hear what they want to say about their work.
It is a reminder that Sarasota is blessed to have so many talented and established artists. I hope this open studio series will expand awareness and appreciation of this treasure in our midst.
The next Open Studio is February 4. Put it in your calendar and when you go take your checkbook support the artists, enrich your life and bring beauty into your home with their creations.

The Winter Solstice is the beginning of winter. It is the shortest day of the year with the most hours of darkness. This winter portends to be long, dark, and cold. It could last four years. Our hope is that beyond the dark is light, mysterious powerful creative energy.
While scouting locations for a Nautica fashion shoot in Martinique I saw this wonderful play of color. The color was from boats in the marina reflecting onto the surface of the water.
