Revisited yet again

I'll explain later if I have time

Explanation: This picture was taken in SYRACUSE, NY, at the quarry ruins behind Syracuse Universities Skytop. I've taken several other versions of this same picture and will try to find them and link to them in case you are interested in the progressive degradation of the image by weather etc.

I find the image interesting, and provocative of "old age and treachery:" changes wrought by aging but also abuse.

I require further time to make the links.

Later: Here's one. This is an "art" piece I did from an earlier photo of this same image. It was sandwiched together with an image of dripping pain taken at the same location.

Three sketches

We've been on the road for ten days and I haven't done much art. I did these three sketches in Hennie Mavis's Moleskine when I was visiting her in New Hampshire. We are leaving again on June 30. The center one is ball point pen and the other two are water colors. All on that funny coated moleskine paper.

The Yellow Lighthouse

The Yellow Lighthouse, by Mary Stebbins. Digitally altered photo-composit Smudge painting. This scene was made by combining pieces of photos and smudging them in photoshop--it does not exist as seen here in the phenomenal world.
