Free and Open to the Public

In the course of a year, there are many changes that occur in nature. The "Seasons & Gardens" images are created to explore these changes by scanning natural objects. Starting in the summer, visits to friends and relatives homes turned up new and interesting types of natural life which were used to create the still life. They show the specific seasons and reflect the places and people that are related to the subject.

Every still life was done in reverse. It requires that I think of what is under the image rather than what is on top. Keeping the objects in place is a challenge, but it also gives the images a little randomness that adds to the final outcome. I never am sure of how it is going to look until it is actually scanned. I can then change it, but canít always make it stay in place, as I would like to have it. The result is always a surprise.

The images are printed on an Epson 4000 using Ultrachrome ink on Watercolor Radiant White or Epson Fine Art Paper.
