Field of Indian Paintbrush and Black-eyed Susan flowers in the Texas Hill Country

Why is this image a top seller?

I sold this image as a fine art print 3 times in the past week. It has been a good seller ever since I took it in 2016, selling dozens of times in the year since I made the image.
This week I began wondering what has made this image so popular?
Looking back I can remember very distinctly when I made the image and a bit of the thought process that went into it.

It was just a few hours after sunrise and I was standing on the side of a hill that was covered with flowers boulders and cactus. I was overwhelmed by the layers of color and I wanted to portray that in an almost abstract way. I could also see the potential for a hint of an S curve composition. There was a large tree to the left and a jumble of boulders to the right that limited opportunities for a horizontal image. So I decided to position myself where I could get as much of the feeling of the layers of color and the sense of sweeping curves while not introducing the distractions present on either side into the image. I used my trusty 90mm tilt/shift lens to keep everything sharp front to back. The creative process itself brings joy and a sense of flow and fulfillment to me. When that process can also bring joy into the lives of the viewers that is the ultimate outcome to me.

If you are interested in learning more about composition, using lenses creatively, and making prints please consider joining us for the Big South Fork Fall Photography Workshop, October 26-29th, 2017 that I will be leading with Ron Rice.

My passion for photography has always been linked to discovery. Discovering new places, new ways of seeing and exploring paths of creative expression. Recently I have begun deeply exploring a more abstract nature image than I have pursued in the past. Here are a few examples of what I have been up  to.

Above is a photograph of a 7 foot gallery wrapped canvas in the process of printing for one of our clients in Minnesota. We are printing a lot of canvases for our clients but it is always fun to take a break to see an image that I saw just a few months ago through the viewfinder of my camera actually appear in print.

We print on all sorts of substrates including wood, acrylic, glass and metal. More on that in an upcoming post.

We triple coat our canvases to insure they are protected against the color fading effects of UV light and the occasional bump, scrape, or fingerprint (which can be wiped off with a soft cloth).

Print Ready for coating below:

“There is another alphabet, whispering from every leaf, singing from every river, shimmering from every sky.” ― Dejan Stojanovic

Just back from a week in the Smoky Mountains. I find the edges of the streams and rivers cutting through the forest and filled with boulders very both peaceful and artistically inspiring.

One of our clients sent us this picture of an installation of one of our images as an ” around the corner” installation in a healthcare facility. It is on frosted Plexi and it is 8 feet high by 16 feet long! We think it is a creative way to approach using art for a corridor space.

Since my prints are on display all over the world, I don’t get to see the installations of my artwork very often. A few of my clients have sent me some images of how they have used my artwork!  Here is a small sampling of the places my prints have been installed:

On a recent trip to Texas, I spotted these islands of bluebonnets that appeared to be floating just above a sea of yellow and green. The Texas Dandelions made a wonderful “ocean” for my “Bluebonnet Island” composition. It is always exciting to me to find subjects in nature that can be portrayed literally and in a totally unrelated way simultaneously. In this case a field of Texas Bluebonnets and Texas Dandelions becomes islands of blue floating in an ocean of yellow.

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.

Fine art photographs of nature can make powerful statements as single images.

They are often the focal point of interest for an entire room. Bringing together images that work as sets or groupings is also an effective way to extend the ambiance and flow of nature images throughout a design.
When choosing photographs to be used as sets or groupings it is a good idea to select images that have a common theme and color. The theme can extend to patterns and textures as well as subject. The theme can extend to patterns and textures as well as subject. It is even more striking if they have a common style and feel. This often means working with one photographic artist for the entire set. I have had many instances where all of the images were shot on the same day and even represent different compositions of the same subject.

Above and below are a couple of very popular groupings that we have helped our clients with.

Click HERE is a link to some more groupings

If you would be interested in having us create some groupings for you please let us know
