Don't know who the musicians will be yet, but should be fun!

July SFWA Gallery Show - "Patterns"

Two of my pieces were juried into the July show. If you attended my exhibit at Pier 26 last Fall, you may recognize these - They remain two of my own favorites.

Red Leaf
The Red Leaf, above, a mixed media piece that started as 3 photographs of shattered safety glass. It's 25" high x 36" wide, and framed in white.

Fair Winds

Fair Winds, originally a photograph I took in Thessaloniki, Greece is of Giorgos Zogolopolous' gigantic steel installation along the seafront (c. 50' high). I used extensive digital enhancement and color filters to create this piece. It is 31" wide and 25" high.

In the Print Bin

For two months, the following images will be available at the gallery in the unframed print bin. They are from near and far. With the Fishes and Vinyl Variations below are abstractions based on photographs I took in Los Angeles last year. The Salt Flat Sandpiper, not my usual subject matter, was just 'there' and appealed to me. 'There' was the Chilean salt flats in the Atacama desert in May. And Rust Scapes #15 is one of the results of my Sacramento photo shoot a couple of months ago. Come in and see them close up and personal. Bin prints are an easy and inexpensive way to get original, signed artwork that you can frame as you like.

Bin Prints July-August 2018

You are invited to the opening reception on Thursday, July 12th from 5:30 - 8pm at the SFWA Gallery, 647 Irving Street @ 8th Avenue, San Francisco.TheIinner Sunset is a lovely area to explore and stroll through on a summer's night. Hope to see you there.

My travels in June extended to the corners of my local Bay Area haunts: North Beach, The Mission and Brisbane. From that please enjoy these:
New Works June 2018

All of them are, of course, available for you to look at on my website or in person, and like most of my pieces, are available in various sizes and display options. Let me know your interest, or any other comments - always fun to hear from you!

The books

Bay Area Jazz & BluesiciansThe two volumes of Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, with a total of 251 local musicians photographed while performing are available on (fastest way to get them) or online at probably a bit cheaper and takes 7 - 10 days to receive them. You can preview some of the pages on either site. If you prefer hand to hand consumerism, they can be purchased at Glen Park's Bird & Beckett Books & Records, at Noise, a really cool record store on Balboa St, San Francisco and The Jazz Conservatory bookstore in Berkeley.

Street SeensAnd never out of date, Street Seens can still be had from It's full of street photography from my jaunts here and there in the world, and it's available in both paper and hard cover versions.

You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
