Bring Your Camera

I came across a tree the other day that had water dripping on it from a building’s roof in midtown Memphis.  The melting snow created icicles all over the branches.

My friend Nicole Perugini (a professional phototgrapher) and I clicked away.

Those photos may turn into a framed print in her unique altered style or a icicle inspired necklace or a mixed media painting (with glass of course)

Icicles on this tree mimic clear glass

from me.  We talked about a collaboration — altered photo with clear borosilicate glass coming out of the paper like the picture is becoming real.

Inspiration can be found everywhere. Bring your camera phone, or digital camera to capture images you come across on a daily basis.  Shapes, color combinations or moments in time may be collected this way till you can get back to the studio.
