Gallery opens tonight – 7 PM till wheneva

Thanks all for the 90+ comments on the invite picture below. :) Maybe we’ll have a little flash-mob tonight at the gallery… that would be cool.

The show starts at 7PM, so come by and have a drink or a snack and hang out. If I haven’t met you in person, please feel free to come up and introduce yourself.

Here is the invite again, along with a few of the prints that will be in the show. Repainting my walls for each photograph took forever. Actually, it took about 15 seconds with the hue/saturation slider.

Thanks also to Ben over at his cool Church of the Customer blog for pointing people my way! :)

ImageKind – the Best Artist Printing Solution on the InterTubes

I have switched to ImageKind to handle all the printing and customer fulfillment for my prints. I highly recommend them!

Check it out here.

I was contacted by the CEO that found my work here on on his own and invited me. I finally checked it out, after putting it off for several months assuming it was crappy like the others, and I was glad to see I was wrong.

After looking all over the intertubes, I think this is by far the best solution. The thing I like is you can set your own prices and control your profit margins. Imagekind only takes the base price.

Also, they were nice enough to feature me on the “Shop” page and on the “Cityscapes” page, which you can see below, so I thought that was kinda cool. In addition, ImageKind has a million framing and matte combinations as well.

On the phone, the CEO mentioned that this company also owns a chain of brick and mortar frame shops, so they 1) buy their supplies in bulk and 2) have a lot of expertise in the custom construction of the frames.

I’m getting a lot of emails from people that can’t come to the actual gallery show down here in Austin that still wanted to buy prints, so this came along at a good time.

And no… Imagekind didn’t pay me to make this post… ! I’m just a self-educated believer. I also see that ImageKind has recently been mentioned by TechCrunch, so it should get a lot more traffic.
ImageKind - a great printing solution!

And here are a few shots of my prints hanging on the wall:

Chicago HDR on canvas, hanging in my living room, in a non-HDR shot, which is confusing to think about, and ending a sentence-fragment with a preposition is something up with which I will not put

The Pictures are Hung

Over the weekend we hung pictures up at the gallery. Everything looks pretty sharp and those of you are coming to the gallery opening should see something a bit different, perhaps. I don’t know… impossible to be objective, but I do know it is different than what is usually shown there at Halcyon.

I’ll be showing about 45 pieces. Here is a sampling of the ones at the show. You will notice the first three are exceptionally pointy.

Gallery Show – Opening Night Thursday at 7 PM

I was invited to show about 40 pieces at Halcyon here in Austin, which is a cool gallery and coffee-kinda place here in downtown. Opening night is Thursday, Dec. 21 at 7 PM. If you are in the area, stop by for a drink and hang out. It’s a pretty laid back crowd, so it should be a good time.

Merry HDR Christmas

Here is one of the prints for my upcoming gallery show that we hung in our living room. I decided to turn it into a little Christmas picture… but then I realized I left my Wii controllers there on the right. Oh well… what’s Christmas without a Wii?

Here is one of the many Buddhist temple complexes scattered around Thailand. This one has some very nice spires in a cool configuration.



Here is another well-adorned church in Rome. If you look at the details of the painting on the left in the large version, they are quite detailed.

Also if you look close, you can see the nun in the black habit in the lower left.


Langkawi at Sunset

The sunsets there were insane for some reason. Insane. Almost every five minutes the entire color palette changed.

Wat Arun

Here is probably one of the most detailed temples I have ever seen. If you have time, zoom in to see the bigger sizes.
