Kells

4/19/14

"Its weird and commanding beauty; its subdued and gold coloring; the baffling intricacy of its fearless designs; the clean, unwavering sweep of rounded spiral; the creeping undulations of serpentine forms, that writhe in artistic profusion throughout the mazes of its decorations; the strong and legible minuscule of its text; the quaintness of its striking portraiture; the unwearied reverence and patient labour that brought it into being; all of which combined go to mate up the Book of Kells have raised this ancient Irish volume to a position of abiding preeminence amongst the illuminated manuscripts of the world. . ."

I watched this gentleman fishing in the surf beyond my dawn photo shoot on the coast of Maine. He was a graceful silhouetted figure casting his line into the sea. He was also very proud to pose with his morning catch.

I don’t have a blue-collar job. It’s more of a green collar, because of all the yellow sweat stains mixing in.

When asked by an author for variations of a violin theme for a book cover, things came together quite quickly.  A beautiful 19th century was violin provided by kinetic sculpture artist David A. Lang.  The instrument belonged to his father.  Mixed-media artist Virginia Fitzgerald took a few moments from the studio to model for the shoot.  It was the first sunny warm day in New England.

I do feel blessed to love process of my work and the beautiful souls I work with.
