I feel like this a lot. Not about Keith, who I dearly love, but about other chocies I sometimes make in my life. Posted by Picasa

Great News

Two pieces of Great News:

I've been invited to show (with others) at an All Digital Show entitled ICONS and IMAGES in Syracuse, New York, at the Technology Garden downtown. Watch for updates. To support this venture, I have started a new webpage that will display all digital aimages: DIGIMAGIK (Digital Image Magic). I'm very excited!

The images in DIGIMAGICK have all been posted to IMAGIK, but are only digital art and are separated by categories. I hope you'll visit sometime. Most of the commenting will end up on this site. At least for now, as DIGIMAGIK is under construction.

I am thinking of DIGIMAGIK as an arm of IMAGIK. The full official name of the show is: Icons & Images: Processing the Work of Art. The opening will be Wed. August 16th. The site is open Monday – Friday. 8am – 5pm.

Other arists include: Sallie Bailey, Dana Bonn, Joe Dube, Crystal LaPointe, Donal & Shel Little, Mick Mather

Another peice of good news is that Keith and I will be getting married June 10, 2006!

for Illustration Friday.

I took a picture of myself in the bathroom mirror this morning. There are multiple mirror panels and a mirror behind all reflecting my face. I then did some compositing with it in photoshop, changing colors, adding effects, and adding extra images. I was trying to convey the angel and devil and multiple sides of ourselves. I am a Gemini, but I think we all have multiple selves including "angels and devils."Posted by Picasa

Washing Up

Washing Up, by Mary Stebbins, click on image to view larger.

f/9.5, 1/180s, 19mm (35 mm equiv 31 mm) ISO 400. Afternoon. After a sunny mid day, a big storm approached. I stopped at the lake to capture the sky. Migrant workers were washing up at the shore. Onondaga Lake is one of the most polluted lakes in the world. I wondered if I should tell them. (I didn't.) I used a graduated grey filter (a real one) to help capture the sky. Still on the road. Posted by Picasa
