inside the black brush

There is some beautiful black and white work by French painter Laurent Koller. It looks like calligraphy very close up. I found the reference to Koller's website on art only art. Here are a few examples.

trip to deliver art to the Gallery at R&F in Kingston, NY

It took 10.5 hours to drive from Ann Arbor, MI to High Falls, NY. I liistened to a mystery on CD and the time flew by.

I can recommend a very good B&B in High Falls. It is The Arbor B&B. The woman who runs it, Nancy Greenwald, is an excellent cook so the hot breakfasts were wonderful and there were homemade cookies or loafcake available when I came home in the afternoon. Also, white cotton sheets on the bed and only fresh flowers from her garden in season - no tacky, plastic - ever. The Arbor is easy walking to good restaurants and a short drive to Mohonk Mt. If this sounds like an endorsement of The Arbor, it is. I stay at quite a few B&Bs but rarely twice at the same one. It's usually the tacky plastic flowers and the cold cereal for breakfast that drive me away. I'll stay at The Arbor anytime I'm in that area.

I dropped my work off at R&F Gallery in Kingston. That was the purpose of my trip. Then the rest of the day was free for photographing. Here are some examples from High Falls and Mohonk Mt.

acrylic transfers onto the back of half inch thick plexiglas

I've been taking lots of photos with my phone. Some of them translate nicely into 24" x 18" images that I have printed and then transfer to the back of half inch thick plexiglas. I've used sumi ink to add depth to the blacks. Here are some results.
