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.
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:

The e-commerce page for my TreZ collection is now fully operational. You can order any of the series in any size you can imagine and we will produce it for you – usually within about 2 weeks.
After the page was finished I realized I’d left our 3 new TreZ from the listing. But that is now rectified!
So here’s the page link from which you can view the entire library and place orders in 5 different sizes of Limited as well as Unlimited Editions.
Based on requests from some of our booth visitors at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival over the weekend, I have crafted some new additions to my Tr?Z collection which can be found on my Vivid Pixelz website.
The Tr?Z collection is comprised of vividly manipulated (predominantly) Winter trees, twisted into a dimensionally different view. Many of these images look alien, most are vivid (some are monochromatic) and all look very different from any native growth you’ve ever seen before.
All images are available from 16×20 matted prints to massive stretched canvases or luster-finish framed prints. All finished prints (canvas or framed) are signed and numbered Limited Editions of 100. The largest prints are nine feet wide!
One of the newest additions:
For those not intimately familiar with the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, it is located in the Deep Ellum entertainment district of Dallas, where six blocks of Main Street are transformed into one enormous street festival featuring 200 juried artists, 100 bands on 5 different stages — and 30 restaurants.
This will be our first year exhibiting at Deep Ellum and our new booth is loaded with examples of some of my finest – and newest creations.
Naturally we will have work from my book on Texas. But we will be exhibiting, the new Vortex series, and for the first time, some of the recently-introduced Tr?Z collection and NYC images.
So come on down and enjoy this perfect Spring weekend.
We are in booth 184, near the Good Latimer end of the festival.

A one man show featuring an eclectic variety of my work, including examples from my abstract “Vortex” series, the Tr?Z collection and some contemporary photography runs April 2nd through the 25th at Langdon Center in Granbury.
This will be the first formal show exhibiting prints from the Vortex collection and the first time anywhere to show images from my newest Tr?Z project. Winter trees have always been a favorite of mine due to being able to actually appreciate the native structure of the tree – unencumbered by leaves. I prefer shooting historic buildings in Winter for this same reason: you can see “through” the surrounding trees and better grasp the entire structure.
This resulted in exploring vivid, dramatic processing to ultimately produce the Tr?Z styling. Dramatic, vivid and visceral, this series will introduce the viewer to winter trees as they have never been seen before.
The Vortex collection has been a work in progress since the beginning of 2012. Created primarily with the designer market in mind, this series is characterized by symmetrical, dramatic and vivid images in diamond or square configurations. Available in four sizes, the Vortex series will fit virtually any wall space or budget.
While this show technically “opens” on April 2nd, the collection will be open to the public on March 31st during the monthly Last Saturday Gallery Night from 5-9 pm.
Stop by and say “Howdy.”
So if you’re in the Granbury neighborhood, check out Langdon Center.
