Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion - December 2018 - Bruegel's "Census At Bethlehem"

Interestingly enough, I am in the process of refining my lecture on composition and this image has so much going for it, compositionally. The first point I would like to say is that you first need to consider both the medium and the time frame of this painting. Being a painting, the artist has a cer...

Re: Just a quick update and check in

Thank you all for the wonderful support. Just another example of why this place is so special.
Things are starting to level off so i hope to pop in more often and get back into the swing of things. Specially since the cold weather will keep me indoors more.

Just a quick update and check in

The past month or so has been very busy for me. I have picked up some more work (always a good thing) and have finished moving my studio into a new space. I hate moving but it forced me to consolidate and get organized. I have also been teaching a lot more lately as well as getting hired by an ad ag...

I sold another magazine cover today!

Congrats! The way you're going I think you're going to have to do a crash course in contract negotiations. We wouldn't want anyone taking advantage of your good nature. Some of us here would need to take up pitchforks if that were to happen. ;)

Re: Help!!! Needed Re: Image Sales

I am working on a solution for any future endeavor though, with someone who is experienced with contracts for photography art products.. That was the other thought that came to me... would one of your contacts at the gallery be able to guide you? Now that you are getting some sales, perhaps start l...

Re: Help!!! Needed Re: Image Sales

They settled on metal though I tried to push toward acrylic after I saw the location. I required a deposit since I have to pay the whole amount up front for metal, and that has created a problem. But I’m afraid to proceed and risk them deciding at delivery that they don’t want them. The things are ...

Re: 'Anger Management'

I was thinking Steven Tyler... Not to be mean, but she should be elated someone would want a photo of her bent over. :) With all that blur around her this is an image that needs to be viewed larger. Very intriguing image and knowing the back story really doesn't change my initial perception of the i...

Re: Drop the Duck... eek!

Thank you all for the wonderful feedback. It reinforces what is in my heart. I have yet to meet a client that has an issue with my nickname. The most common question I get is, "how did you come by that name?" Minnie, I find myself in the same mind frame as you. If someone does have an issue (i.e. th...

Drop the Duck... eek!

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7237/7238258260_56fc7bd8e2_z.jpg I had a company call me to inquire about some of my services the other day. In my initial conversation I, as usual, introduced myself as "Duck". My wife overheard me and after the phone conversation she casually made reference to how I...
