We Sold the Bank!

That’s right! After more than five years on the market, we have finally sold our 1880 bank building (home and studio) in Eureka, Nevada. We have lived in Eureka since October 2005 and will be departing April 2018.

Most of all we will miss the vault.


For over a year now we have been selling, redistributing, donating and recycling our stuff. We have less than half of the stuff we had when we moved to Eureka and that is still way too much stuff… Less is more!


Everyone is asking us the same question: “Where are you moving to?”. Our answer is always the same, “We don’t know!”. This notion highly disturbs most folks. “What do you mean you don’t know? Certainly you’re going to rent a place to call home, right?”. No, we are not. We both have always felt that we don’t fit in the places we have lived. So, we plan on traveling around, exploring places, figuring out where it is that we want to be.

Richard Menzies wrote in his book “Passing Through: An Existential Journey Across America’s Outback”. “If you don’t fit in, move to Nevada. If you don’t fit in Nevada, move to Battle Mountain”.


Follow us as we start a new journey in search of what’s next… We have several communities we plan on exploring at length. But, first we have some large scale public art to install and several Artist in Residencies to wrap up across Nevada before we set out across the West in search of a new home/studio…

9th Annual RayKo Plastic Camera Show

I’m very pleased to announce two of my images from Burning Man have juried into the RayKo Photo Center’s 9th Annual International Juried Plastic Camera Show. Thanks Ann!




“Hat Trick”

I am frequently asked, “What is a plastic camera”? Simply put, it is a camera made of plastic or more specifically a lens made of plastic. In other words, low quality, crappy optics. For me using a plastic camera translates into freedom from the technological aspects of photography allowing me to concentrate on the graphics and design of an image.

These photographs were created using a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic” disposable camera that I reload with Kodak Tri-X black & white film. Like most artists I’m a control freak when it comes to my art. I process my own film and do all my own printing, both optical and digital. I make my own scans and print these images digitally on Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper using an Epson 7890 printer with K3 ink set for an archival quality print that will last for generations.

The Opening Artists Reception is Wednesday, March 9th from 6-8pm.

The exhibition runs from March 9th through April 29th, 2016

The Opening is free and open to the public. Many of the artists will be at the artists’ reception. Please support the arts by attending arts events and buying art. Hope to see you there!

Burning Man 2015

Burning Man 2015

Burning Man has never really appealed to me. Maybe because I become uneasy at the thought of large crowds, let alone a really large crowd in a place that Trish and I have been camping in for decades. Camping without a crowd, or without seeing … Continue reading
