Lost

I have FIVE #dailytruck prints on metal that I can’t locate. I put them “in a safe place” when my gallery changed its location. One I’m featuring on my promotional materials for my upcoming exhibition, #mycommute. If I don’t find it, I’ll have to get another print made. I really don’t want to do that.

I went so far as to do this:

This morning, I’m going through the art storage area with a fine tooth comb.

Nope.

I will now imbibe some of my cold-brewed coffee experiment:

and turn the house upside down!

Passing Through

Selections from the #mybeautifulcommute series, digital watercolors (Waterlogues) made from iPhone captures. Most easily seen on my Tumblr here.
The location is a segment of my westbound commute home, where CA60 passes under I-5 northbound, the 101, I-5 southbound, I-10 eastbound, then unites with I-10.
At 7pm, it usually isn’t too terrible until the merge with the westbound I-10, just east of downtown LA. The forms of the overpasses zoom by in the blink of an eye, and every day it’s different.

Some of these images will be on exhibit at TAG Gallery, July 11 – August 5.
If you’re in LA, the Opening Reception is July 15, 5-8pm.

Focus

Have you ever run out of storage space while taking pictures with your iPhone?

Dreamy Rothko-like images appear and freeze the camera.

Is it possible to deliberately take a photo like that on a smart phone?
Or are the devices too smart, assuming we always want things in focus.

The First

waterlogue of a truck butt
605 North, digital watercolor, 2015

Here is the first waterlogue I made of the back end of a truck for the #myshittycommute series. Created on 6/16/15, I hadn’t yet completely formed my compositional parameters (wipers visible).
This was recently released from “photo jail”.

I have more than 15K photos/images on my phone.
I “lost” computer access to them due to an OS upgrade in September January (no room on the laptop for the new Photos application). I had some clunky workarounds, including emailing to self. I finally decided that I’d had it and got myself a new Mac Mini, which arrived on Thursday. I can now see ALL my truck waterlogues as thumbnails in one place — what a relief! I have to figure out what to get printed for my show in July!

Wait… July 9 (hanging day) is only 35 days away. Uh oh.
Procrastination is the bane of my existence.
