WOW!!! The studio tour was a great success....way beyond my expectations. It is good to see people about and enjoying art! And Photography is an art form. Comments have been said that photography can't be considered art because it is just tooooo easy! Early arguments stated that it was purely mechanical and contained no human sensibilities. Art must fulfill the following to be art...."In each, lines and colors combined in a particular way, certain forms and relations of forms, stir our aesthetic emotions." Stirring our emotions...Isn't that what good photography should and does do. "There are many schools of painting. Why should there not be many schools of photographic art? There is hardly a right and a wrong in these matters,but there is truth, and that should form the basis of all works of art," Alfred Stieglitz, American Amateur Photographer 1893

2010 BARN calendar now availble!

A love of old barns prompted the publication of this new calender. Who cannot love these old beauties that are fast becoming extinct! Three of the ones pictured are already gone.

To quote EB White....
"The barn was very large. It was very old. It smelled of hay and it smelled of manure. It smelled of the perspiration of tired horses and the wonderful sweet breath of patient cows. It often had a sort of peaceful thought nothing bad could happen ever again in the world."
