Today I printed a 40×60 gallery wrapped canvas print of this image for a client. It has been a popular abstract With my clients and is one of my  personal favorites. So I wanted to take a few minutes to share it with you. Visualizing a deeply three dimensional scene such as this as a two dimensional abstract photograph is exciting to me. Then composing and creating the image and finally to see it output as a massive print to share with others is thrilling! I created this image while hiking at the bottom of a gorge in Big South Fork National Recreation area in Tennessee.

There is a growing trend in a large number of the installations that feature our work to choose gallery wrapped canvas prints over frames. They look fantastic in a wide variety of settings. They are lightweight and easy to hang. The image is digitally extended and wrapped around the stretcher bars which gives the photograph more “presence” on the wall. Since the wrap is done by digitally extending the image area there is no cropping into the photograph. Often the cost is less than a similar size print that is matted and framed. Gallery wrapped canvas prints also work in a wide variety of settings, both modern and more traditional.

The colors in our canvas prints are true to the original image. They are archival with a life span of over 100 years. We UV coat all of our canvas prints which adds to the already impressive life span and gives a rich finish to the canvas. The coating is water resistant and they can be dusted with a soft cloth. Don’t use dust sprays on them, however.

Above is a close up example of a corner and edges so that you can see how they look finished out.

Often when I travel to a location I have some idea of what I will see and at least rough image concepts in mind. Recently, I traveled to Nevada to attend a trade show in Las Vegas. I was not expecting to have a lot of time to explore and create photographs. As a result I didn’t spend much time planning out a photographic safari. After I arrived in Vegas and had my schedule for the week, I realized I could probably squeeze in a couple of hours of photography each day. I photographed quite a few different subjects in the desert but somehow the multicolored rocks I found in the Valley of Fire State Park captured my imagination. Creating these fine art abstract images was especially exciting because I went with no preconceived ideas of what I was looking for.The light, the interesting rock formations and my whims were the guide.

Maybe having no creative plan can be a plan. I went into the desert with an open mind and heart and let whatever caught my eye begin the creative process. Over the next few weeks I will share a number of the images I created on this trip. This is the first one.
