Hard/Soft Texture

P1020831small copy.jpg

I don’t really know how to explain this properly but what I like most about this photograph is not the subject matter, there’s nothing really exciting about a beat up brick wall. Nor is it the light, although there’s a nice range of it here. No what I like best is its texture.

Moss, plants, leaves, flaking plaster, broken bricks and embedded granite stone all combine to produce a kind of tactile quality that pulls the viewer more towards feeling than seeing.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
