"Montauk Point Lighthouse" is juried into the Las Laguna Art Galery in Laguna Beach, CA "Landscapes or Seascapes" Exhibit. Available 24 x 36 inches on metal. https://www.laslagunaartgallery.com/
Story behind the photo... While visiting a dear friend and collector a few years back in the Hamptons we decided to make a mini-trip visiting lighthouses. Standing between the boulders near the water's edge the waves were wild on this gray and foggy day at Montauk Point Lighthouse. Several people standing on the cliff above were yelling at me to move concerned I'd be hit by a rogue wave. It all ended well minus drenched boots that dried out for more adventures.

Honored that from all the amazing local artists, Cleveland Clinic selected my works for the Women's Center at their Weston location, 1825 N Corporate Lakes Blvd, Weston, FL 33326. Twenty-two pieces, measuring 24 x 36 inches, each were selected from the Sacred Trees, Landscapes and Winged Life collections.
My fine art photography was selected because it invites the viewer to be transported to the extraordinary beauty, peace and healing of nature. As you probably already know, I'm passsionate about nature photography. For me the importance of nature is far more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.

Story behind the photo...... They say the camera reflects both ways... the subject being photographed and the attitude and emotions of the photographer. I could only see beauty the day I was privileged to meet Louie at the Center for Great Apes, the only accredited orangutan sanctuary in North America, as well as feel love for the work to rescue other orangutans and apes from abuse and extinction.
I was privileged to have a private tour of the Center along with two other photogs. As we entered the grounds several of the orangutans started throwing mud at me. All I could image was it was a greeting of some kind. Perhaps they were confused by our matching hair color. As we approached Louie's enclosure he started to run towards me. I had my lens right up against the enclosure. Then he seemed to "see" me. He paused. We connected. I clicked the shutter. An experience I will never forget and am forever grateful for.
Grateful that "Everglades After Sunset," "Rosie," and "Double Vision" were juried into the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest 2021. Online Exhibit runs through Nov 30th. To see my works scroll to the left. https://bit.ly/3p0znN8phoenixspiritdiva

Story Behind the Photo...
Camping overnight at Middleton’s Fish Camp in central Florida, we’re the first pontoon boat on Blue Cypress Lake just before sunrise. This natural freshwater lake has the highest concentration of osprey in the world. As the pontoon boat is moving quickly, this Zen-like vision appeared through the early morning fog. The osprey are still roosting in their nests in cypress trees lining the lake’s edge.
Also, honored that this piece has also been juried into the Business for the Arts of Broward, www.bfabroward.org/programs/art-stroll/ "Art & Stroll" Event. This special event of fine art, music, food is November 17th, 5 - 8pm, in downtown Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas.
