Does anyone have a worm bin?

A couple of weeks ago I ordered one online, put it together and waited until today to get the "Red Wigglers" I ordered.

Wow! I have always loved photographing nature and gardening, I have never liked worms but theses are really kewl I'm excited about the shots I envision.

I am putting together a video to show the progress of my worm farm. I will keep you posted.

What sizes?

I am a new photographer and have never shown my work in public. (not counting friends and family)

My intention is to be in an Arthop in the near future but I am unsure of the sizes my photos should be printed. My plan is to print in series so the main… Continue

Getting ready for more...

Tomorrow, I hit the road early, again, for another public art tour and picture taking event. Today was just a taste, as I accompanied Bob Gifford while he did welding in prep for installing a gate designed by Chris Sorensen, at a private home. I couldn't look (it's not safe), but my camera could, and… Continue

Changes coming up...

Hello everyone... After experiencing a great "Fresno pride moment" with the FS Bulldogs winning the College World Series, I am back to work...

Our online community have been growing at a great pace... With that said, I would like to remind that we are still in "beta" status --- which means that our platform will "break" or "change" anytime. However, any changes would be for implementing incremental improvements in the usefulness of the website.

Within the next few weeks, I… Continue

Another Installation...

Pardon the pun. I couldn't help it.

Yesterday, the server just didn't like my uploads, no matter the flavor. Reminded me of teaching my kids how to eat from a spoon... you get the picture. (I will not write at length about the fact that the cooler belt on the AC also broke… Continue

Public Art continued...

I think I enjoy doing this in short bites. If anyone happens to visit any of the works I'm posting, please do comment here and even include your picture of the same? That would be great!

So, with that said, on to a few more works around the region.

This… Continue

Slowly, surely...

Good morning...and thank you Victor for the nice comment and the reminder to document! Like many artists, I work like crazy and often forget to document. In fact, yesterday's photo road trip was an effort to do just that for Chris and Bob.

I added the Egrets in last night's quick entry. They are three, by Chris Sorensen, overlooking the San Joaquin River, on Friant, right across from the Copper development. The path that goes by them leads from…

And Back to Where I started from...

I promise to post details tomorrow. My 4:30am rising time has caught up with me...I was a dolt at sunrise? You should see me now...

Here's an appetizer from the day

Too tired for words...

OK, so I should blog, already.

I am an absolute dolt in the early morning. Although I get up early, I wake up late.

Today, I'm off to photograph some friends' public installations and other work, all over the bloomin' county. It's supposed to be something of a roadtrip.

Pictures to come after the event!

New Feature: Groups


I just activated a new feature called "Groups". Here's a couple of use cases for this feature:

1. A group could be created based on gallery affiliation. Suppose that artist A is a member of Gallery 11 and so does artist B, artist C, and so on. One of the artist could create a group called Gallery 11 and use FresnoArts to focus their discussions within the group.

2. Artist A is a veteran photographer, while artist B is a novice. Artist A could create a… Continue
