This year was colder, there was snow left on the ground from a snowfall the previous week, and instead of staying in a heated tent in Curry Village, my friend and I pitched tents and were snow camping. Instead of taking a feast, I took a box of soup for the Thanksgiving meal. I gave […]

There is no story for this video. I felt like nothing I could say could do Yosemite justice. Even when I’m there, I don’t like to talk much. I spent a long time picking out the images for this video – I have hundreds of them – but I limited myself to the images I […]
The forest calls me in. To a place where I can meet the trees. Face to face. One tree calls to me. Then another I walk up to it. Close. The tree’s craggy and weathered protective skin, its bark, is full of canyons and crevasses. Like a topographic map of some wooded landscape. The bark’s […]
Most people usually go out to The Marin Headlands to see the sweeping views of landscape, where the hills meet the Pacific Ocean, or the Golden Gate Bridge that connects the two peninsulas – North and South. To be honest on the day of these photographs I did too. And while I did find that – […]
Summer has ended and fall has arrived. I love the fall. It’s a season of harvest of deep earthy colors. I love it when the first boxes of pumpkins and flats of Indian corn arrive at the market. I find Cinderella and fairy tale pumpkins in their earthy pink and green hues. I find the […]
Wandering around the vast redwood forests of Humboldt County in Northern California gives a sense of the prehistoric. The forest is absolutely silent, except for the families with children or rowdy teenagers running and squealing along the trails. But if one can get a moment alone in the Land of the Giants, the silence is […]
REASON FOR BEING
I have never traveled because someone tried to sell me a destination. I’ve chosen my destinations to travel to because someone told me a good story or tall tale about their experience there, or they showed me a few of their magical and personal photographs. I’m attracted to a place because it’s an important contemporary art center or historical in some art or cultural or archaeological or spiritual way and often the experience of being in a landscape also inspires me while the deeper mystery of a destination is what pulls me there.
That’s what I try to share with my readers of this site.

WHAT I/WE DO
Artists, Writers, Photographers, Musicians, Performers, Creatives … it’s probably our intense curiosity about life that drives us to move about on the planet. Our need to experience the revitalization of Self attracts the artist in us to the road or the rail or the skies. In a way, traveling is very similar to the creation process – both are taking a leap into the unknown.
Within our travels we find the discovery of a new place, a new language, a new taste, a new way of seeing, or find new work methods that will ultimately, profoundly affect our work.
ARTIST-AT-LARGE is here to inspire and encourage you to open the door and step out into an unknown world – to transform – even if it is only by experiencing your own neighborhood.
The focus here is first and foremost selling images, but it’s also on presenting cultural travel writing and photography, bringing together travelers and photographers, and when we aren’t traveling we share our everyday lives, studio work and musings, as well our cultural walkabouts around our homelands.
