leaping into 21st century documentation

Big project nearing completion during this Covid isolation period.

Remember these slide carousels?! The slides in this carousel are

from my talk at Montserrat College of Art many years ago,

maybe in 1999…

All those piled in the boxes have since been tossed.

Some 600 images in all have been digitized by a wonderfully professional

service called Everpresent here in the Boston area.

Thank you Sally Seamans for the recommendation.

I chose the highest resolution option with descriptive labeling.

(Some of the slides had labels with descriptions typed on

a typewriter, then glued on with rubber cement. This was

pre-Sharpies and self adhesive labels. Dinosaur technology

all around!!)

So happy to have had this project behind me.

It had been on my to-do list far too long.



5 Koi 20

having fun with some new koi

one of the biggest challenges is editing the photographs for this blog.I seem

to have to choose between accurate red-orange-yellow warmth

over blue-green cooler colors.

Difficult choice at best.

It’s worse when I shoot the paintings in the studio as in the case with this

one.

24×24 oil on canvas

this looks nothing like the actual painting!

The actual colors are sensuous orange and vermilions and subtle

ultramarines.

But, this is the best I can do for now. 🙁
