I'm ready for my modest photo show. The Native Bagel (It's a great place for lunch!) offers one wall for the Wellsboro Art Club and one wall for the Grand Canyon Photo Club. I have space to hang five 16" by 20" photo composites - which are shown here. The work will be hung during the afternoon on Ground Hog Day.

A pair of puzzles

 I've made an effort to make my colors more intense on these two pieces.

After working on the photo images collages of my granddaughters, I got the bright idea to use some of my people-free photos to make collages using overlaping and transparencies. Here are some spaced steps that occurred while I made this collage using old ceramic letters (that I have often used in my textured paintings). I was trying to come up with 11 good images for a small photo display to be hung in the Native Bagel eatery in Wellsboro, PA. Yesterday we went over for lunch to see the space - well, the space will hold five large images tops! So in my culling process, this piece was eliminated. Some of the pieces will feature things like eggs, silverware and stoplights. My photos will be hung in February and the photos will be marked with a sign proclaiming: Member of the Grand Canyon Photo Club. (There is good food, too. All soups and sandwiches are served with a bag of homemade "bagel chips.")

I really enjoyed the colorful leaves on the deck and Sophie being her usual busy, busy self. I just had to try to join the many images together into a coherent whole.

New exhibit at the Gmeiner in Wellsboro

A fellow member of the Grand Canyon Photo Club opened a show of 47 large photographs from his travels to Europe and the Middle East. Wolfram Jobst has often explained his thoughts and ideas about photography; but, better yet, he has shared many of his digital images with our photo club, too! Hurry over to the Gmeiner - the show runs through the month of January.
