pickles in a jar

Desperate hour. Stuck inside. No photos. No light. Spied the jar. Never dreamed it would look so like an old Dutch still life with the light hitting everything just so

Thanks to our friend Tony DeAngelis for the photogenic homemade pickles. And if you don’t know the Courtney Barnett song, “Pickles in a Jar”, it’s a hoot. She also has a song called “Avant Gardener”. Hmm. Guess it all comes full circle.

something old, something new

Since all I’ve posted lately are invitations to my art fairs, I thought I’d share a little something pretty for your Friday pleasure. It’s a new picture made from something I shot some time ago and it will be one of my first vintage-framed prints (available tomorrow).

I have certain pictures, like this one, that I think of as “old master” style. They are painterly still lifes set again rich, inky black backgrounds, with a certain quality of light that recall the 17th-century Dutch masters. Paintings inspire so much of my photography.
