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.

Work is underway for our next Open Studio’s February 24, 2018 10am to 4pm. We will be showing new photography, paintings, and multi-media art.
