Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre – June 23-28 2016

The Jury process is one of the biggest parts of the Art Fair business. Often clients think that we just show up, set up our tents, and start selling our work. However, in order to be selected for a show, we have to compete against many talented artists for a space to display our work.

Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre

Earlier this morning I was going through my work, looking for those magic images that would get me into the shows.

This image, from Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre, that I photographed while teaching a workshop is one of those images that I think will stand out in the jury process. I will be teaching a workshop this summer (June 23-28, 2016) in the Cinque Terre and Pisa, Italy and revisiting this location to see if I can improve on this image. Sometime the difference in an outstanding image is the sky and sometimes it is the techniques we learn.


Manarola, Tapestry

It has been a short week after arriving home from Arts Beats and Eats on Monday night I am heading over to Rochester to set up at Art and Apples tomorrow morning. With the short week I only had time to work on a few images including this new Panoramic from Manarola that reminds me of a wonderful tapestry that are made in Italy. My booth # is 47. If you have time come by to see a few new images that I have been working on the last couple of weeks.

Panoramic of Manarola in the Cinque Terre at sunset

The last couple of years while teaching the locations workshops I have been looking for images whose compositions would make a nice panoramic over a couch or a queen size bed. This image from the Manarola in the Cinque Terre was captured last October and will be on display for the 1st time this Labor Day weekend at Arts Beats & Eats in Royal Oak as a 24″x60″. If you are at the show this weekend stop by my booth #130 to check out some of the new panoramas that I will be displaying.
