Whidbey Island Sojourn

The subject today: photography. The location: Whidbey Island. I’m delighted to be posting a gallery of images made during my three weeks at Pacific Northwest Art School assisting Arthur Meyerson and Sam Abell.

The surroundings are always inspiring, but the work and engagement from our students, along with the masterful imagery from Arthur and Sam, energizes my creative fire. So off I went to the Island County Fair and to haunt the shoreline. Some evenings I walked through town, some I walked the prairie. I just wanted to be open to light, color, and gesture…layers, refinement, and the concepts of eternity and impermanence. As always, the full expression of my intent is my personal benchmark for a successful photo. I realize that this is an entirely personal, subjective judgement. But it is the one most fully in alignment with my philosophy of living.

I’m so happy to announce that I will be teaching and assisting again next year for Pacific Northwest Art School, beginning August 4th for my four day class and then rolling into the next two weeks for Sam and Arthur! Stay tuned to the blog about other teaching venues and more opportunities for study, both in the US and abroad. Thanks for checking the blog….I hope you enjoy the images. Comments most welcome, as always!

    Keron, you make the most expressive images. They are all beautiful, but I think I like bunny best–the bunnies don’t come out very much during the fair.

      Hi Peggy! I have some more images coming up that you may like…but none will compare to your image from Iceland with the aurora and the lake/pond. I can’t get it out of my mind!

    Keron – nice set. I’ve got to say my favorite is the one with the front net of the ferry with fog on the other side. It was great to meet you at Sam’s workshop and I’ll be in touch about Portugal.

      Nancy! Thanks for checking the blog…it was a great pleasure for me to meet you, share the week in Coupeville, and see your work. Well done! I can’t wait to share Portugal with you. Warmth and smiles, Keron
