New Chattel subjects added ~

I had the pleasure to collaborate with Whidbey Island artist Claudia Pettis.  She's a terrific painter of favorite subject of mine: sheep. And, as a serious breeder of Black Welsh Mountain Sheep, she has access to her own. She generously worked with me for three days to create some new images--for me, and for herself.

About the cover

This is the ferry from Friday Harbor as seen from Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island. It's dusk, and that's the glow of Vancouver to the north. I used the long exposure to extend the idea of transport through a mystical space.


aCurator features Chattel

The online magazine acurator.com is featuring the goats and sheep starting Sep. 14. They are in very good company with some terrific photo projects, curated by  the amazing and energetic Julie Grahame. The images look best in her full-screen presentation.


New Portraits 

A recent visit to New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary yielded a few new portraits. Stanwood, Mandy and our old friend Jake are featured at the top of the Chattel page.
