I’m excited to introduce my first annual special edition poster! For those of you who follow me you know that I have been working hard over the last two and one half years to develop a portfolio of Bandon sea stacks.
This year I have been fortunate enough to show my images at three different locations in our beautiful town of Bandon. I am honored and gratified that they have been well received in our community and with my friends in social media as well.
Thank you so much to all who follow me and support my work. You are so appreciated!
I wanted to create something for folks that love the sea stacks but would appreciate a piece of art that is a little less expensive than the full images that we sell.
So here it is and I hope you like it!
A large 17X22 inch fine art poster with Epson archival fine art paper and ink that I use for all of my images. (This is not a thin paper poster).
I designed this and print out each piece myself in my home studio. I sign the piece at your request.
Sale price for this poster is U.S. $55 and shipping is free within the U.S.
If you would like to order please use the Paypal link. For special orders see further instructions at the bottom of this blog post.
The first two have sold so the image here shows edition 3/100
Exhibits around town.
An artist statement that I recently wrote as I reflected on my sea stack work.
“This then: to photograph a rock, have it look like a rock, but be more than a rock.”
– Edward Weston
Hind sight is 20/20. As I review the last two years of my sea stack photography project I begin to gain some clarity. I embarked upon this personal artistic assignment during the summer of my retirement from 30 years of social work. Large shifts in stages of life tend to call for a transition of sorts. It is clear to me now that I intuitively knew to seek out a restorative transition of refuge….at the refuge.
Some folks aren’t aware of this but the sea stacks off of Bandon beach belong to Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge is a U.S. National Wildlife Refuge off the southwestern Oregon Coast. According to Wikipedia It is one of six National Wildlife Refuges comprising the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex. The Oregon Islands provides wilderness protection to 1,853 small islands, rocks, and reefs plus two headlands, totaling 371 acres.
The Oregon Islands infused me with a fresh sense of wonder. Their presence, purpose and beauty instilled my spirit with hope and gratitude.
My belief behind the critical need for refuge systems around the world now holds a deeper personal meaning. I have a growing sense that protected habitats are perhaps as vital for human survival as they are for the survival of our beloved wildlife.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
~ Albert Einstein
