Vielle Ferme

The last two years I’ve been awarded First Place for photography at the Museum of the Southwest’s spring juried exhibition.  I’m honored by the recognition and thankful for the Midland Arts Association’s stewardship of the show.  The museum, as I said last year, is a jewel of a place and a must see if you’re in West Texas.  The show runs through April 29. 

Each year I’m surprised by the bounty of wonderful art at the museum.  Showing along with the spring juried show last year was the Plein Air Painters of America’s National Parks exhibition and this year the museum features 100 Years of Photographs of the Grand Canyon.  There’s also a gallery devoted to Taos Masters.  So there’s a lot to see in beautiful downtown Midland.
Vielle Ferme is the winning photograph which comes from our September in Provence.   The meticulously tilled old farm had been in cultivation since middle ages and the rugged stone building for nearly as long.  Only its metal door and cinder block reinforcements betray modernity.  An epic sky completes the ensemble.  Ain’t life grand?

In January the color iteration of Vielle Ferme was on display, and sold most quickly, at the Millicent Rogers Museum’s miniatures show.  This is the rare image that seems to work as well in color as black and white.  As a mostly black and white shooter I lean to monochrome.  Here not so much.  What do you think?

For awhile now I’ve been flirting with the idea of offering specific images at especially attractive prices for that week (the day of the post through the following Sunday).   You receive a signed, editioned 8x12 inch archival pigment print on 13x19 inch Moab Entrada paper for $150.  This is normally $225.  Vielle Ferme is available in color or black and white, a comparitive rarity.
If interested, email me a  Thanks all.
