Art & Architecture: Mid~Century Modern Blitz @ Sunmore District

While traveling about the Palm Springs area, my wife and I came upon the Sunmore district, a Mid~Century paradise of inspirations. Notable history re the Rancho Style is one Clift May. I took quite a few photos to share and placed them in collage format, which does limit the overall image size.

Carole Pivarnik Honors SwittersB in Watercolors

Today, I had a most pleasant surprise that I am quite honored by. Carole Pivarnik contacted me to say she had used one of my photographs to inspire a watercolor rendition of the image. Further, she was donating the painting to the Project Healing Waters, 2-Fly Tournament and Fund Raiser happening this weekend at Rose River Farm in Syria, Virginia. Carole’s additional works serve to highlight companion animals. 

Carole contacted me tonight to update me that the painting garnered several bids in the auction, the proceeds going to Project Healing Waters. Wonderful effort Carole. Those truly honored are the Veterans!

Photography: Macro & The Wind

“I hold no preference among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.” Edward Abbey

The desert wind was steadily blowing. Every find of wildflowers found them merrily waving about with the wind. Momentary pauses afforded a few shots, but for the most part the word ‘blur’ comes to mind. Well, the wildflowers were beautiful.
