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 […]

If you look up my hometown on the web, the first photos you will see of the town are of this courthouse. It’s not because the courthouse defines the town, or the county, or in any way represents the vibe of the town. It’s because it’s the nicest building in the town. It is stately, […]
My Mom passed on a few weeks ago and I am back in Pennsylvania helping (I think) my sisters sort things out. But enough became enough at a certain point and yesterday I took myself out to one of my old favorite places from when I was a teenager, McConnells Mill. I can’t remember the […]
This week has just begun, but I think most of my photography for the week has happened already. I spent this past weekend house and dog sitting for a new-to-me person. A cute little backyard house in the Northside of Berkeley. Sometimes when I have a housesit, especially a new one, I create a photography […]
Last week was another local day trip and surprisingly to somewhere I’ve never been. Mount Diablo is always present in the landscape. You can see it from Mount Tamalpais, from downtown San Francisco, and from a wide radius beyond the East Bay Hills. When I was rideshare driver (ugh), I had the opportunity a few […]
January and February 2022 were Omicron months, when day trips and local walkabouts were put on hold … again. Time during those months was spent editing photographs from the fall trips and shooting things in my everyday life. March has been lightening up though. Last week my friend L. and I took a small walkabout […]
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 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.
