One Only at This Price – Texas Star – $250.00

by on Jan.02, 2015, under News

Texas Star - Canvas Only

Texas Star – Canvas Only

Signed / numbered Limited Edition “Texas Star” on rolled canvas.

Unmounted, unframed $150

20″ x 31″ on 24″ wide canvas
# 2/250

Today I had to clean the nozzles on the big printer & figured I might as well run off a print while I had it up and running.
Normally a print of this size would sell for much more.

This is raw rolled canvas. You can stretch it, do a gallery wrap, mount and frame it, use hangar bars, or just grab 4 pushpins and stick it to the wall.
Your choice!

Join Us for Southlake’s Oktoberfest

by on Oct.01, 2014, under Art Shows, Events, Exhibitions, News

Howdy everyone!

We will be at Southlake’s Oktoberfest this weekend.  Stop by and say Hi if you have time.  It will be fun.  We will be in booths 66 & 67 facing north toward the Town Hall – right next to Die Festhalle in the center of the exhibit area.

Hillside Motel

Hillside Motel

We will have our usual double booth with lots of large Limited Edition prints, 16×20 prints and some new images.  A large selection of note cards will be on hand as well.

We are almost out of books, so this is your last opportunity in 2014 to pick up a signed / personalized copy of Texas As I See It.

We will be launching a crowdfunding program for the reprint shortly. This will be a good way to pick up the 2nd printing at a discount, but delivery will be early next year.

( I did not create the map, so I am not responsible for typos… 😉

Large Art on Display at Munzee Marketplace

by on Sep.16, 2014, under Exhibitions, gallery updates, News

The newest arrival in McKinney’s square is Munzee Marketplace.  For those of you not familiar with Munzee, it’s a tak-eoff on geocaching that has exploded into an online game with Munzees (QR codes) deployed on every continent.  Billed as a “21st century scavenger hunt, the concept has really taken off in the last couple of years.

Munzee Marketplace

In the process of expanding their offices in McKinney, they elected to put in a retail store for their products (QR codes, shirts, merchandise galore.  While planning their retail store, a decision was made to fill a gap in the services available in downtown McKinney and the store concept evolved into a fully functional convenience store.

Along with the usual assortment of snacks, medications and Texas-made items like salsa, they are including local art.

 

 

 

In addition to my book, Texas As I See It, they have a nice selection of McKinney / Texas-centric note cards as well.  Just this week they finished installing three pieces of my limited edition art.

The big canvas of Texas Landscape 1 (the cover of my book) is 69″ wide and sells for $1,675.00

The three limited editions on display are:

New Slideshow Galleries Posted

by on Aug.22, 2013, under gallery updates, News

Well it’s been a long three days, but I’m finally finished upgrading all the web galleries to a new slideshow format.

In the past, our online galleries were Flash-based, which meant they were not compatible with Apple’s IOS-based portable devices.  The reason I haven’t rectified this issue sooner, is that building the new galleries requires a lot of painstaking manual effort.  The Flash galleries are an automated process that takes less than 2 minutes per gallery.

In the process of upgrading the galleries, the home page received a complete makeover which includes a slideshow of images above a grid of large thumbnails for the various disciplines I market.

Stop by and take a look.  Let me know what you think.

Our Texas As I See It site has also received slideshow galleries.  Vivid Pixelz as well.

The next step is to create fully mobile-compliant subdomains for the Smart Phone market.  Stay tuned

This is what the new gallery display looks like:

Let’s Not Forget Why We Celebrate Memorial Day

by on May.26, 2013, under News

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day, a single day set aside each year to honor those many thousand of men and women in our Armed Forces who have given their lives for our freedom and way of life here in the United States of America.

So while you’re busy with family activities, travel and Bar-B-Qs, take a moment to reflect on those whose lives have made these activities and freedoms possible for you.

Thank a Vet.

Book Signings This Weekend

by on Jan.20, 2012, under Art Shows, Events, News

Two book signings for my book, “Texas As I See It” are slated for what looks like a Perfect weekend to get out and explore.

The first signing is at the very new Dallas Omni Hotel.  If you have not taken the opportunity to visit this amazing hotel, this is an excellent opportunity.

Why is it so amazing?

For starters, every room displays local art.  That’s right.  The Omni has taken an incredible position in support of local artists and has adorned every single room and common area with local original art.

Then there’s the architecture.  One of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever seen.  Clever spaces, custom lighting, a pool that is a stunning trapezoid, lined with dichroic blue glass mosaic tiles – and with an amazing view.

The gift shop.  Wow!  This is a gift shop like you would expect in the Dallas Museum of Art.  Open, spacious, bright and airy — and they carry my book!

And… If you have been living in a cave with no connection to the outside word — the entire exterior of the building lights up in stripes of variable colors that are computer controlled to produce designs, messages and just plain vibrant color over the surface of the hotel.  It is very simply the crown jewel in the already- stunning Dallas night skyline.

Essentially, the Dallas Omni Hotel is more like a contemporary art museum where your are able to spend the night.  Seriously.

So come on down:

Book Signing – Dallas Omni Hotel

Frisco photographer Warren Paul Harris, in conjunction with the release of his first coffee table book, Texas As I See It, will be available to sign copies of the book at the Omni Hotel in Dallas on January 21 from 1-3pm.  This is an excellent opportunity to experience the newest crown jewel in the Dallas Skyline – the Omni Hotel.

Warren’s view of the Lone Star State is evocative, compelling and insightful. Capturing everyday vignettes from our surroundings and processing them to enhance texture, color and detail, much of his work seems more illustrative than simply photographic.

With a keen eye for composition, Harris brings us the mundane, as well as the unusual with compelling results. From the amusing to the poignant, his combinations of light and shadow, texture and relationships, evoke a visceral response in the viewer.

As a long-time contributor to many local papers and magazines, Warren has captured some amazing events included in this book. But Warren’s love for his adopted home comes from exploring the back roads and small towns of Texas on his Harley and by car, for no other reason than to see what he can discover. A Licensed Texas Investigator, his natural curiosity serves him well in ferreting out the unusual among Texas’ hidden treasures. His experience as an architect, designing and building recording studios for 20 years, gives him a unique appreciation for line, light and shadow – and copious examples punctuate this volume.

While Warren has been best known for his time-exposures taken from unusual locations in the middle of the night, this first volume of three books is entirely daylight-centric. “After creating the prototype for this book in 2009, having the time-exposure work next to my daylight images seemed in conflict” says Harris. “As a result of adding a lot of new material from my library, it seemed best to break up the work into three volumes, which keeps the production costs lower and allowed us to produce a higher quality product.”

Spanning 158 pages with 204 images, the book is hardbound with dust jacket and sells for $34.95.

One dollar from the sale of every book is donated to Big Thought, a non-profit organization benefiting Dallas Independent School District.

Published by Brown Books in Dallas, Texas As I See It is endorsed by Ebby Halliday and Terry Box, the Sheriff of Collin County, among others.

Texas Author Donates to Dallas Schools

Frisco, Texas – November 30, 2011


Frisco photographer Warren Paul Harris, in conjunction with the release of his first coffee table book, Texas As I See It, is donating part of the proceeds to benefit Dallas schools.

While it is no secret that Dallas Independent School District (DISD) is in dire financial straits, support for the Arts in Texas education has been especially lacking for many years. This was made abundantly clear when Mr. Harris’ daughter began instructing at DISD as a music teacher in 2007. Her entire program, along with all other Arts programs were funded not by the State, but by a completely separate Grant.

Warren wanted the proceeds of his book to make a difference in education and the Arts. As a result, one dollar from the sale of every book is donated to Big Thought, a non-profit organization benefiting DISD.

Warren’s view of the Lone Star State is evocative, compelling and insightful. Capturing everyday vignettes from our surroundings and processing them to enhance texture, color and detail, much of his work seems more illustrative than simply photographic.

With a keen eye for composition, Harris brings us the mundane, as well as the unusual with compelling results. From the amusing to the poignant, his combinations of light and shadow, texture and relationships, evoke a visceral response in the viewer.
