Honored and humbled to be considered for Texas Artist of the Year. I'd hang my hat on these selections out of two series. Both were begun when my beloved wife Katie Wintters was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. We both moved closer and closer to home as that cycle progressed. I thought it was a good idea to quit traveling and stay home and work on still life photos.
I'm a very native regionalist. I work out of my home and yard on Lindsey Lane in Tyler, Texas. I trust the everything I need is within arms reach here in the upper Blackford Creek Watershed.
My work flow is as follows: An idea arrives in my imagination. I think of ways to get it on a piece of film. I keep failing until it arrives.
Tornadoes arrived and blew through my studio.
