1x1.trans Beginners wheat

Oregon’s Highway 97 is one of the more banal, yet beautiful routes to adventure on if you give it your attention and some extra time. A slow, meandering highway through Eastern Oregon, there are so many beautiful moments like this early wheat crop. It’s what inspired the original Windows XP desktop.

This is a close-up shot of the long-gone Mississippi Street Nerd. I can’t remember who threw these iconographic nerds all over the places, but I snapped this image as the wood underneath started splitting from the summer heat. Ah, texture…

Seen near OMSI. No idea what this is used for, though.

2014 North Coast Seed Building Open House.
This is a photo I took of my long-time bud PK, doing what he does best. Digital photo turned oil painting.
1x1.trans Let me paint your portrait with this camera

Another great open house at North Coast Seed Building this year. This time I made some portraits for the willing, and summarily turned seventeen of the photos into paintings. Thanks for coming down! The 17 images are in the gallery.

1x1.trans Solar Decay

This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
