Water abstract photos in upcoming juried show

So, as I've mentioned before, I find it difficult to paint abstracts.  However, as a photographer, abstract images of nature have been one of my favorite subjects for almost two years now, with water being my all time favorite abstract "medium" to photograph.

The Durango Arts Center sent out its list of upcoming shows for 2012, which includes an all-abstract venue titled "Abstract Views".  I'd briefly considered submitting some paintings, but since the show is open to all media, I figured it might be better to submit some photos instead (I think they are far better than any of my abstract paintings).

The submission deadline was a few weeks ago, and to my delight, I discovered when we got back from AZ, that two of my three photos were accepted into the show!  Those are shown above. 

The show runs from Jan 5-28, 2012 at the Durango Arts Center.


  1. That's great - they are wonderful images.

  2. Thanks Helen - I'm pretty excited about it!

  3. Congrats on being juried in, both are very captivating images!

  4. Thanks Dan - I certainly think so, too! I am looking forward to seeing how they look printed, matted and framed.
