French Revelation

Ever since I’ve been working on this series, I have always strived to have the animal portraits that I do show the subject in a heroic light.

Try as I may with the smaller breeds, to me, they look more cute and comical rather than regal & refined. The more that I do of these, the more I see that specific breeds dictate a large part of what the final outcome and mood of the portrait will be.

There is a freeing quality to this way of thinking in that I always try to magnify everything about the subject. If it brings out their personality and adds to the image, I'm all for it.

I heart the Philadelphia Inquirer!

I usually don't post news items in this area, but this a big one. As some of you already know, I have an exhibition at the Philadelphia International Airport that runs until November.
 
I got an email from the airport last week to let me know that a reporter would be contacting me to ask a few questions about the exhibition. I thought that I might get a mention and a photo but nothing like this.
