New Work in Progress


Since it was such a gorgeous clear and sunny day today, I went out scouting for new print ideas. I took my camera and intended to go visit the Center for Wooden Boats, but unfortunately, they were closed for the holidays, and not set to reopen until January 4. Bummer! It would have been a great day to get some shots there, as the sun was out, and there was virtually no wind, so the water had a glass like reflection to it. I'll have to be on the lookout for future days like today (I know what you're thinking - in Seattle that may be next August!)

Space Needle


The shots of the Space Needle turned out great. The problem now is to decide which to use. I've got a great horizontal shot of the whole city, and a vertical one that more prominently features the Space Needle. I think i'll have to play with it and do some color separations to see which will be the better one. Here are the two I'm contemplating:

Vertical It Is


I spent about 8 hours working on the image today, and I have some really great textures on the top of the needle. It looks almost like it was painted with a pallet knife. So, I think I'm going to go with the vertical piece, since the image of the needle is almost twice as large, and really shows off the textures to a better advantage.

Blue Needle is born!


After 3 days spent in the famous Choke studio, printing and printing and printing, I finally have a completed edition. I love the way the blues all turned out, and the addition of the brown tones have kept it from getting too cold. I am going to call this print "Blue Needle". I've been thinking that I need more evocative names than I've used in the past, and added to that is the great likelihood that I will do another portrait of the Space Needle before too long - after all, what's an image of Seattle without the Needle?
