painting and photographic works

My Year Behind the Lens

In the first part of my look back at 2012, I focused on my painting activities. Those that follow this blog will know that my art comprised of painting and photography. In this post I look at the highlights of my photographic work in 2012.

17 of my 32  blog posts in 2012 were about photography and most featured 5 or 6 images (with just a few words of description). The common themes for my photos (and blog posts) in 2012 were black and white, landscapes and abstracts (frequently using long exposure with camera-motion) – and often a combination of these themes.

My most popular post of 2012, Island Images- Black and White, featured some black and white landscape photos that I took while on Salt Spring Island in September for a painting workshop. My second most-liked blog post of the year  was Spirit of Spring Landscapes  which featured some of my abstract landscape photos. Incidentally, 10 of my blog posts in 2012 were about abstract photography.

The highlight of my photographic year was having one of my photos, Carr’s Forest, accepted into the Visual Arts Alberta Open Photo/Open Digital 2012 Exhibition. As a result, my photo was one of fifty that were part of the exhibition that showed in both Calgary and Edmonton, in the fall. I was also proud that this piece won an honorable mention.
