The Art of Art

It’s another weekly challenge from iScriblr, her theme this week is ART.

By now, if you’re a regular here, you know this site is all about the art — the art of trucks! (haha).
I have a lot of blogs, with different angles on my many interests (here are ALL my links). I started this blog to learn WordPress, in anticipation of changing my art website to a WordPress platform. Mission (more or less) accomplished.

My latest art (promotional) activity has been focused on art fairs, since I no longer am with a gallery.

I took the trucks to The Beverly Hills Art Show two weeks ago and didn’t sell any. Boo.

This week, I’ve been working on an application for the Luxembourg Art Prize and uploading my work to Saatchi Art. I’m concentrating on my 2014 On the Edge: US series and have been updating all the images in a new desktop version of Waterlogue [I was comped a copy for being a beta tester]. This new version has been great for my road trip photos, since I like need to edit them and I am able to do a much better job in Photoshop vs editing on my phone, which I currently do for the trucks.

Here is an example:

US77 Texas — original washed out Waterlogue. Early version of the app and before I knew what to do for better results.

I guess I’ll be getting back on a virtual road trip.
I have scads of road photos to process!
And yes, I have a road trip blog!
