On My Shelf: Original Works of Art

I think that our shelves show some insight into who we are.

Our priorities, our interests, etc.

Our tolerance for clutter, piles, and dust.

Plus, it gives me another excuse to practice taking pictures and experimenting with lighting. Here’s my next¬†shelf:

This shelf is a bit simpler than the previous entries, because it’s the top shelf and therefore quite narrow.

From left to right:

These are two 8.5×11-inch test prints I made from a recent trip to DuPont State Forest in North Carolina. I’m learning fine art printing, so I used these two pictures to compare a few different papers, then put them here to “outgas”, which really means drying.

Behind those, we have a picture that Aly sent along with me when I moved down here to South Carolina. I commissioned this artwork so it gets a prominent display!


Behind Aly’s drawing is a canvas print of a sunset picture that I took at Saugatuck Dunes State Park in May of 2013. Here’s the original:
