Leafy Greens

Summer is drawing to a close (in theory at least), kids are back in school and magazines, stores and cafes are all beginning to hint at the coming transition to fall. Even so, it still feels and looks pretty darn summery here in Baltimore …and summer in Baltimore means jungle-esque (hot, humid and very, VERY green).

These photos are from my trip to Bali earlier this year, but don’t seem like much of a stretch for Baltimore this time of year.

This last picture I took at about 10 o’clock one night during a village festival.. but that’s a story for another time…

Back to Earth

Earlier this year I went on a trip that took me far across the globe. Since my return, it’s been a whirlwind of activity everywhere, it seems, but here. But finally, FINALLY, I’m coming back to the photo- and art-related work that’s been left off since my trip.

I’ve already shared a photo or two from the trip but there are heaps more to look forward to. Here are a few to begin with…

There were so many incredible plants, flowers and just LIVELINESS in general to see. Things were so lush and jeweled green. These are tiny plants I found on the stone walls of temples.

Last month, this was part of my view. It’s been a few busy weeks since then and about time (overdue, really) to start sharing pictures, I think…especially after torrential rains for the last two days! More soon…

This weekend in America we moved clocks ahead an hour. This generally means the following Monday is full of zombies disoriented and exhausted by what shouldn’t be a big deal but for some reason our bodies just can’t deal with it.

Anyway, it’s a new week and at least around here, a sunny-ish one to boot. This illustration feels warm and full and reminds me of positive things. It also has a certain dark twist or tension that I generally like and end up infusing into my work often whether I mean to or not. What do you think? What does this piece remind you of or feel like to you?

The last few days I’ve been fighting back a cold and also trying to wrangle what seemed like acres of leaves. I will admit to coming up short, the leaves always win (though at least I’m feeling mostly better). And as the month zooms by and the wind picks up, the tress are starting to look pretty bare. How are things with you guys?

It’s hard to believe, but today it was warm and sunny enough to be driving around town with the windows down. Even though it’s November, Baltimore is, as usual, somewhat reluctant to admit that it’s fall and that winter will be on the way soon enough.

Light leaves

The leaves are still hanging on though. And some flowers too….

Fall Flowers

Oh well. At least it’s fun while it lasts…

I’ve been inside for most of the day editing, ironically, images of the beautiful autumn colors outside. Here are just a few:





Couldn’t resist the abruptness of the last image in contrast to the other four.
