One day recently I bothered to look at Albert Bierstadt's painting titled "Yosemite" hanging over the couch and turned to my wife and said, "I hadn't noticed it for ten years, but I really am deathly ill of looking at that painting." My wife and her sisters had paid $350 for the painting to give to my wife's late father, and my wife received it after his death. I gave it to my wife's sister, who, I think, plans to put it on eBay. Meanwhile, I thought, "Since I have over 3,000 frameable pictures, more or less worth framing, why don't we use more of my photos?" So here are a few we ended up with. These photos of the pictures aren't the best, and I will take some better ones, but these will do for now.
Tulips from Thanksgiving Point, poppies from Alpine meadows, red and yellow roses from my back yard in St. George UT. Note the mats for the red poppies and the tulips. I've decided to digitally mat all of the photos I print from now on. The top three photos are all metallic prints, which gives them a wonderful sheen and appearance on the wall. I'm in the process of resurrecting my Zenfolio galleries and price lists for prints. In the meantime, if you are sick of the old stuff hanging on your walls, check out the link to Peppermint Tulips on the right. If you find something you like and have some questions, email me at email@example.com So far, we've hung about 25 new photos on our living room and entry foyer walls and haven't even started on the downstairs. And if we get tired of these, there are several thousand more to take their places.
