If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

The Ohio River Valley has had many cloudy and overcast days this winter. When the sun does shine with intensity, the low angle of  the sun gives me the natural light I like to play with – generally with glass objects refracting the light into interesting patterns. At the end of a recent photo session I noticed a reflection of light from the holographic paper and decided to see “what happens if I move this and that.” Some new images can now be found in Fine Art Photography.

Theory is when you know everything but nothing works.  Experiment is when everything works but you know nothing. Most of the time nothing works and no one knows why.  Amy Bower
