Friday Vibes – The Tranquility of the Outdoors

In autumn my home state of Washington shows its colors, deepened and moistened by a welcome rain. I spent time photographing abstracts from the Olympic Peninsula in the west to Icicle Creek on the east side of the Cascade Range. In between I documented my yard for an upcoming book on Seattle gardens and scouted Port Townsend for a new abstract workshop. While I am an avid consumer of news, photography and nature has helped me keep my zen through these tense times. Take a hike, listen to water and the wind, cast your gaze into the reaching branches of a tree, it’s good for the soul.

    Loved #5 the Coi and #6 the contrast of red leaves on black shadow tree reflections. Thanks for sharing your always inspiring images Art.

  3. Hi. My name is Nancy Richter. I’m interested in your abstract workshop. How can I get information about it?

  4. Very exciting captures. I wish I could again go out and hike the back areas of this country but due to arthritis in both ankles, I am limited on short distances and out of my car window. I envy you and those who can walk all day while carrying your gear.

    I admire your work Sir. And I think you could visit Mallorca in the Mediterranean, it is an island full of inspiration for every kind of artist.
