Six Years Later

This morning, I was looking through my old photos, curious as to what I might have been looking at, taking photos of, on this day in past years. As it turns out I hadn’t been very active on January Thirteenths, but I did find some from 2012. In fact, I quite liked what I was doing that year – it was a bit of a treasure chest of abstract images!

I took a number of those photos, tweaked and cropped them to come up with these final images (which I like and hope you will too):








Lines (an Abstract Painting Series)

This small series from the autumn of 2012 was an exploration of mark making into the wet surface of an oil-painted canvas:


“Marks”, oil on hardboard, 30 by 30 cm, 2012


“Fall”, Oil on canvas, 46 by 46 cm, 2012


“Lines in a Field”, oil on hardboard, 30 by 30 cm, 2012


“Spirals”, Oil on canvas, 46 by 46 cm, 2012


“Maxwell”, Oil on hardboard, 61 by 61 cm, 2012


Abstract 110610-515

I was walking through an older part of downtown the other day when some interesting architectural details caught my eye. Combine those details, with different points of view for a photo and then different cropping twisting and processing after the shutter press, leads to some interesting images:

Abstract 110607-515(2)

This second image started from the same original photograph. This next one, is not the same photo but is from the same wall, at a different perspective:

Abstract 110610-514(2)

Across the street from this wall, I took this image:

Top of the Wall

This image was processed with the Color Efex infrared film filter through  Capture NX2.

Down an alley, and 30 meters away, I found another intriguing exterior wall that I just had to capture:

Old Brick Wall

And finally, another take on this highly textured brick wall:
