Sky Holes, a photograph of tree shadows on garden gates has been accepted in this year’s Art Ability International Juried Arts Exhibit for People Living with Disabilities at Bryn Mawr Rehab Center in Malvern, PA. The image plays a few optical tricks and color ways that are intriguing – the gray color on the left where the sun hits the black wood is the same tone as the shadow falling on the white door on the right, the green in the middle appears in the shadow but turns white in the light. The illusion of soft focus is the result of light shining through the spaces between the leaves and branches of the trees making sky holes of illumination. The term abstract is appropriate to apply to this landscape photograph because the image modifies the objects in the setting to patterns and colors, separates the elements from a concrete reality and emphasizes generalized shapes.

light being (Frank) is for all the departed Franks – Zappa, Sinatra, Anne – but the title is influenced by a favorite dance song called Frank Sinatra by Felix da Housecat – the lyrics go:
every night with my star friends
we eat caviar and drink champagne
sniffing in the v.i.p. area
we talk about frank sinatra
you know frank sinatra?
ha, ha, ha
The first DoNster who guesses the location where light being (Frank) was shot will get a free print.
