The Happiness of Flowers

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.– Buddha.

Flowers are meant to be photographed. They make us happy and inspire us, whether it’s a fine art print, a bouquet in a vase, or a garden, it’s near impossible to keep from smiling and feeling emotionally nourished when flowers are in our midst.

Wherever the opportunity arises, I eagerly shoot these magnificent wonders of nature. But as a photographer, I often crave new ways to stretch my floral imagination. Spring Symphony is the result. Neither pure realism nor stereotypically abstract, I assembled and designed, by hand, a composition using actual fresh blooms. Then I photographed it as a one-of-a-kind fresh flower collage to preserve as a fine art print.

The title, Spring Symphony, is most fitting. By definition, a symphony is something regarded, typically favorably, as a composition of different elements. This image expresses spring as a symphony of texture, pattern, and color. The bursting combination of silky pinks, deep red-purple, and antique white, with green accents, share a bed of soft petals that hint at both abstraction and a vintage textile print. It’s sure to bring any interior space to life.

As a fine art print to be enjoyed year-round, it’s a striking addition to any home, whether a warm welcome to an entryway, along a hallway, as a centerpiece above a mantle or sofa, in a kitchen or dining setting, a bedroom (especially cheerful for a young girl’s space), as an office accent, or as a special gift. Have a look here to explore this artwork in greater detail.

Discovery your floral happiness with this affordable fine art print, for sale in multiple sizes, framed and unframed + free shipping. Metal, acrylic, and canvas prints are also available to suit multiple interior design styles, whether eclectic, vintage, modern, contemporary or traditional. I’d be honored for you to enjoy this for years to come. Also, take a look at these other original floral prints in my collection.

The Magic of Hydrangeas

When winter brings cold and darker days, I pine for the return of spring. Not just for rising temperatures but for flowers that pop up like magic, the best of nature’s gifts and embrace. 

In particular, Hydrangeas, with their large flowerheads, different colors, and lovely shapes, have special meanings and appeal. Its floral name means water vessel, which comes from the seed capsule resembling an ancient Greek water container.

Hydrangeas’ big, beautiful blooms, as captured in this fine art photograph available here, have a number of symbolic associations. Hydrangeas are known to represent sincere emotions, gratitude, and deep understanding. In cultural Japanese practices, hydrangeas are honored as a decorative motif on a traditional robe (yukata), similar to a kimono. In the spiritual realm, these blossoms are also said to redirect bad energy and offer protection.

Named Flower Cascade because the composition has an aesthetic resembling flowers gently pouring down like a waterfall, this image celebrates the glorious wonder of nature and all that hydrangeas signify. Their textural softness huddled petals, and detailed pistils evoke the happiness of springtime and summer. As a fine art print to be enjoyed year-round, it’s a striking addition to any home, whether a warm welcome to an entryway, along a hallway, as a centerpiece above a mantle or sofa, in a kitchen or dining setting, or as an office accent. Have a look here to explore this artwork in greater detail.

Affordable fine art prints are for sale in multiple sizes, framed and unframed + free shipping. Metal, acrylic, and canvas prints are also available to suit multiple interior design styles, whether eclectic, modern, contemporary, or traditional. I’d be honored for you to enjoy this for years to come. Also, take a look at these other original floral prints in my collection.

Warm Dreams: A vivid one-of-a-kind photo collage of bold yellow colors.

Spring Symphony: A one-of-a-kind collage bursting with pink and purple blooms.

Tulip After the Rain: Soothing black and white tulips dotted with raindrops.

Hydrangeas in Black & White: A black and white alternative to Flower Cascade.

Birds in a Garden Paradise

Birds are wonderous creatures, they fly and flutter about with both elegance and style. To bring their beauty indoors, wallpaper illustrations showing birds in their habitat have been a staple of luxury decor for millennia. Although not precisely known when the first wallpaper was made, records state it was first used in China as early as 200 B.C. The first Chinese wallpapers were of birds, flowers, and landscapes painted on rice paper.

This fine art photograph of a wallpaper panel is authentic to an eighteenth-century English mansion, which caught my eye at a historic home. Radiating a feeling of peace and beauty, delicate flowers with birds among the vines bring all senses to life as one can almost smell the fragrant petals and hear chirps and trilling from the trees. The more you look, the more details reveal themselves. Hanging this in any interior space honors and brings to life a slice of vintage beauty that made stunning wall coverings prized throughout history.

Imagine Garden Paradise welcoming visitors at the entryway of your home, along a hallway, as a centerpiece above a mantle or sofa, or accenting an office. Have a look here to explore Garden Paradise in greater detail.

Affordable fine art prints are for sale in multiple sizes, framed and unframed + free shipping. Metal, acrylic, and canvas prints are also available to suit multiple interior design styles, whether eclectic, modern, contemporary, or traditional. I’d be honored for you to enjoy this for years to come. Also, take a look at these other one-of-a-kind, bird-themed artworks from my collection, unlike any typical photographs.

Birds and Petals: A vivid abstract composition reminiscent of Andy Warhol without imitation.

Paris Bird Market: A multicolor alternative to Birds and Petals.

Birds in the Cherry Blossom Trees: A joyful, one-of-a-kind photo collage.

Cherry Blossom Fantasy: Purple-hued, bolder version of Birds in the Cherry Blossom Trees

Irresistible Paris!

Among my European travels, no city has felt as magical as Paris, France. The Seine River, famous throughout the world, had a particular hold on me. I’m not alone. It has inspired, influenced, and been the subject of masterworks by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse, Alfred Sisley, and many others.

I was thrilled to catch a particularly stunning moment when billowing clouds swept the open sky, an iconic sightseeing boat sailed by, and daily street life along the river’s banks was as lively as ever. In black and white, lines, shadows, and light help define not only the overall landscape but also the beauty of classic French architecture. Recognizing the historical importance of the Seine River – which flows into the English Channel at Le Havre – it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.

Whether you’ve visited Paris, it’s on your “bucket list,” or you simply appreciate a one-of-a-kind landscape, black and white photography, and want to refresh your space with beautiful art, Big Sky Above the Seine, Paris is for you. Imagine this striking piece welcoming visitors at the entryway of your home, along a hallway, as a centerpiece above a mantle or sofa, or enlivening an office.

Have a closer look here to explore Big Sky Above the Seine, Paris, in greater detail. Affordable fine art prints are for sale in multiple sizes, framed and unframed + free shipping. Metal, acrylic, and canvas prints are also available to suit multiple interior design styles, whether eclectic, modern, contemporary, or traditional.

Timeless Reflection

A surprising synergy between New York City’s urban streets and the trappings of a classical garden provide a timeless reflection image captured through the glass window of a flower shop. A Romanesque statue, urn, and plant textures in the foreground against city life’s cars and skyscrapers are as if ancient and modern civilizations overlap and collide.

Black and white offers an aesthetic that creates a sense of agelessness, compelling the eye to linger on the many hidden details without the distraction of color. It is a beautiful medium, nostalgic, sometimes mysterious, and a step removed from reality.

As a fine art photography print, Timeless Reflection is one-of-a-kind composition that lures curiosity, conversation, and looking more closely. Imagine this striking piece welcoming visitors at the entryway of your home, along a hallway, or as a centerpiece above a mantle or sofa.

Have a closer look here to explore Timeless Reflection more carefully. Affordable fine art prints are available in multiple sizes, framed and unframed + free shipping.

Winter Coast Landscape: Nature in Black and White

Living in New York City, I don’t often find myself in nearby nature settings that take my breath away; that is, until recently discovering Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, Connecticut – a short drive from Manhattan. It was a strikingly bright day over the beach and walking trail that soon evolved into a sunset sky. The shifting atmosphere, replete with exceptional shadows and light draping the wintery ocean coast, winding gravel path, and surrounding forestry, spoke to me in black and white.

I changed my camera settings back and forth between color and black and white, just in case one would provide a more compelling result than the other. Sure enough, my instinct was right. Black and white provide an aesthetic that creates a timeless sense of drama without the distraction of color. In addition, a figure in the distance enhances the composition as it punctuates humanity’s connection to nature no matter the season or sense of solitude.

The unique beauty of this landscape is ready to be hung on any wall in a multitude of settings where it will be enjoyed for years to come. Fine art prints are available at Winter Coast Landscape Photo Art Pavilion in multiple sizes, framed/unframed + FREE SHIPPING.

“Warm Dreams” To Color Your Home

Floral art reimagined. That was the initial inspiration behind this award-winning, photographic collage. Designed by hand using fresh flowers to create a “deconstructed” one-of-a-kind piece, “Warm Dreams” was then photographed and color-edited for perpetuity.

The rich, vivid colors of this fine art print is poised to lift anyone’s spirits. Yellow is known to make you happy. The most energetic of the warm colors, yellow is associated with laughter, hope, and sunshine. The burst of orange – the combination of yellow and red – is the color of warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity.

“Warm Dreams” is perfect for enlivening any interior space with the positive and comforting energy that it exudes – and makes a great wall refresh for the New Year and at any time. Available in multiple sizes, framed or unframed, plus free shipping.

According to Homes & Gardens (February 2022) in a feature by Jennifer Ebert and Arabella Youens, “The world’s best interior designers love using this color in the home… An earthy golden yellow is a shade that shines, but it also creates rooms that are rich and enveloping – it’s a hue that’s like a warm embrace.”

A Colorful Life

“What’s your favorite color?” A common question. Mine is purple (and its soulmate, aubergine). Colors enhance our lives in countless ways, from home décor to nature’s gift of landscapes and brilliant sunsets.

In photography and art, color is a science. Color wheels illustrate it with words like complementary, primary, secondary, tertiary, warm, cool, monochromatic, analogous, triadic, and tetradic. Whew! I prefer to use color in ways that arouse emotions based on individual perception, not necessarily theories.

In the words of French painter Fernand Leger (On Monumentality and Color, 1943), “The craving for color is a natural necessity just as for water and fire. Color is a raw material indispensable to life. In every era of his existence and his history, the human being has associated color with his joys, his actions, and his pleasures.”

In my “Warm Dreams,” yellow has the starring role. After disassembling flowers into petals and pistils to create an original composition, then photographing it, I enabled its bold color palette to emerge. According to the “psychology” of color, yellow symbolizes hope, happiness, and positivity. Pops of green are associated with harmony, life, and renewal. Flares of orange uplift the image further, representing energy.

Sometimes the color palette choice is not as absolute as “Warm Dreams.” For example, “Birds and Petals” and “Paris Bird Market” each began with a photograph captured during a wonderful day at the Paris Bird Market. From a negative, I produced a cyanotype print (using chemicals and UV light), adding layers of living flowers. The Birds and Petals composition is inspired by Andy Warhol’s Flower Series, although not derivative. When revisiting this piece. I had a gnawing urge to “play with” the color palette some more, which became “Paris Bird Market,” an alternative version.

2. Birds and Petals   3. Paris Bird Market

The same is true of “Birds in the Cherry Blossom Trees” and “Cherry Blossom Fantasy.” From my original photograph of Cherry Blossoms, the image was printed on transparency film as a primary overlay, adding beneath it watercolor-like birds and a graphic design. Once again, I could not settle on just the original color scheme. “Birds in the Cherry Blossom Trees” blends soft shades of orange and green, while Cherry Blossom Fantasy takes a bolder approach with deep purples, green, and red.

5. Cherry Blossom Fantasy   4. Birds in the Cherry Blossom Trees

Individual perception determines what emotional connections arise from color and subject – different for everyone. Floral compositions have been a subject used in art photography for millennia. These abstract concepts seek to stretch that tradition with unexpected floral elements that also rely on other wonders of nature. Find your favorite color.

I am delighted that “Warm Dreams” has been selected for the curated exhibition, “Be Bold,” on display and on sale at the CFA Gallery in Glen Head, NY (70 Glen Head Road), on display and on sale from September 25 – November 4, 2022. The Artist Reception and Awards Presentation takes place on October 15 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. All are welcome.

Bring some color into your life, with these fine art prints (free shipping).

Warm Dreams – A one-of-a-kind bold yellow floral; expressive, conceptual, colorful

Birds and Petals – A vivid abstract composition

Paris Bird Market – A multicolor alternative to Birds and Petals

Colorfully yours,

"Wherever Your Path May Lead" featured in "Happy Little Trees" exhibition

What would compel a New Yorker to drive from Manhattan to Long Island on a Friday summer afternoon when the city’s population has a seismic weekend shift toward the beaches, the Hamptons, and other parts out east? I had a good reason.

In what should have taken less than 90 minutes (although on this day, the GPS warned otherwise), three hours and 17 minutes later I arrived at the Islip Arts Council Gallery in Bay Shore, where the “Happy Little Trees” exhibition reception was taking place. It was exciting to see my selected works (a photograph and collage art) on display in this juried show. Mingling with the art viewers and other creators is always fun as well.

Wherever Your Path May Lead” offers a visually soothing landscape where a beautiful cascading tree drapes above a path that veers toward a distant unknown. Prints (framed or unframed, free shipping) are available in multiple sizes. There’s always a new journey to discover and explore.

Historic Boathouses on Canandaigua Lake

Rows of charming wooden boathouses on Canandaigua City Pier have a distinct old village “seaside “charm. The Historic Canandaigua Boathouses’ rustic beauty and unique personality sit on the picturesque Canandaigua Lake, located in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Especially striking against the fall foliage colors in the distance, this image, captured on a misty overcast day, has a painterly quality and peaceful stillness. The boathouses reflected in the water add dimension to a scene that for many east-coasters is a “bucket list” travel spot. I was on vacation when I visited the rows of boathouses, and it filled me with amazement and curiosity. I later learned some interesting facts about them. The Canandaigua City Pier was built in 1848, and the first boathouses were built there during the 1850s. By 1888, over eighty boathouses were along the pier.

A Boathouse Owners Association was later formed to help protect and enforce the rules that included prohibiting people from living in the boathouses or using them as cottages, although some have a second story with lounging and rest areas. With their rustic nature, they remain a unique and picturesque reminder of Canandaigua’s heritage. They reflect an earlier, simpler lifestyle and the area residents’ continuing use and love of the lake. The boathouses were finally added to the Canandaigua Historic District to preserve their heritage in 1990.

Watching The Fishermen

While on vacation in Dublin, I shot this image of a lone fisherman in the coastal village of Howth, Ireland. It has since become my most liked post across multiple social media platforms including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I am thrilled that it has been seen and admired by people around the world, with rave comments about the color palette, the simple serenity of the water, the fisherman’s candid pose, and likening it to a painting. I can imagine this hanging in any home setting, especially for those who appreciate fishing, waterscapes, coastal scenes, and travel. I hope you like this as much as I do, as it takes me back to a special moment in time watching the fishermen and boating activity along the peninsula of Howth Head.
