Serene night on the Gulf of Mexico

My friend and fellow photographer, Peter Silvia made an astute observation about a recently curated collection of my images showcasing water.

“You know Wayne these images of water are really about serenity”.

Images can be more about feeling than the fact of the subject.

This is particularly the case  when when we are in a state of union with the subject we are observing.

I hope when you look at the images I’ll share in the coming days you find that they give you a moment of serenity.

Healing Power of Photographic Art

I remember the feeling of peace and calm when I made this image at dawn.  The quiet was accompanied by the chirps and songs of birds nearby and far away. 

Original photographic image used for interior decor

So it felt right when this image was selected by Jerri Menaul of Art Vitae for installation at the new cancer center, Florida Cancer Specialist & Research Institute in north Fort Meyers, Florida.

The interior space was a long wall between the administrative offices and exam rooms.  While documenting the installation a number of staff and patients stopped to say how positive it was for them to have this beautiful and peaceful image in a place of medical treatment and healing.  As an artist, knowing that the energy I put into creating an image  has capability to connect with others and enhance their lives is a reward in and of itself.

Artists who opened their studios today, Jan. 6, 2016 as part of the Sarasota Visual Artists Studios.
Other artist who participated but who I was unable to visit include:

This was a wonderful chance to see the Artists studios and hear what they want to say about their work.

It is a reminder that Sarasota is blessed to have so many talented and established artists. I hope this open studio series will expand awareness and appreciation of this treasure in our midst.

The next Open Studio is February 4. Put it in your calendar and when you go take your checkbook support the artists, enrich your life and bring beauty into your home with their creations.

Meteoric light abstraction.

Light is to photography what paint is to the painter.  I made this image with colors contained in light.  In the studio I used prisms to break up the spectrum of light and create this meteor of color and light.

Reflection of boats, Martinique

While scouting locations for a Nautica fashion shoot in Martinique I saw this wonderful play of color.  The color was from boats in the marina reflecting onto the surface of the water.

I love the feeling of this image.  It is as if I am small and moving among the tulips looking up at the sun coming down through the petals and leaves.
