I have become enamored with taking an existing photograph and transforming it into something completely different. These “digital art” creations are highly abstract, with a few evolving into slightly recognizable shapes. Each one is unique in design and most simply emerged from a free form experimentation of my basic method. Here is one of my favorites:
In 2016, our small family consisting of me, my wife Jennifer, and my mother-in-law Geneva decided to join a cohousing community in northern New Mexico. Taos is an unusual small town of about 6,000 people geographically located in an embayment in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, which is part of the southern Rocky Mountains chain. At 7000 ft. elevation, the altitude took some getting used to but we have made the adjustment and are enjoying all that the town and region has to offer. The people here have been very welcoming and friendly and we are very happy with our choice.
I made this yesterday after a night of snow. This view of Taos Mountain was shot from the front porch of the house we are currently renting at Valverde Commons. Our new house construction should be finished by early summer.
