A couple of weeks ago I announced the renewal of my Print-of-the-Month offering. Toward the end of each month, starting with this post, I will announce the image I choose for the following month. The one I chose for August, 2019, is titled, Remembrance. It is part of a portfolio titled, Vegetative States, making use of the features of plants—lines, colors, textures, patterns, and shapes—to express moods experienced at the time of making each image.
New Print-of-the-Month subscribers to join before August 1st will receive this print. You may still sign up, if interested.
Remembrance was made in the autumn of 2018, in an area high up a desert mountain range that burned in a wildfire a couple of decades ago. It is an eerie place where the tension between life and death is palpable. New growth emerges among the remains of now-dead trees, evidence of charring can still be found here and there, and the magnitude of the burn is visible for many miles. It is a place that inspires somber contemplation.
Prints will be mailed to subscribers starting mid-August.
