Photo Of The Day: Blue Gate

This particular blue gate on 24th Street in San Francisco has always drawn my attention. There are many painted gates in The Mission District of San Francisco, but this one is unique – primarily because of its vibrancy and hue. During the month of August, every year for the past eighteen or nineteen or so […]

New Images: Mt. Tamalpais

Even as an abstract and conceptual artist, I find inspiration in landscape. Lines, color, spatial relationships, geometry, contrasts … Many people might find it confusing as to why someone like me would take so many images of seemingly non-artful things. To study. That is why. Mt.Tamalpais is a landmark that I have been able to […]

New Images: Yosemite

A few weeks ago my day-trip buddy and I took a one day road trip up to Yosemite. Not being a fan of Yosemite myself, it wasn’t the location that enticed me out of my pandemic stupor. It had been over a year since I had been out of Berkeley. We could have been on […]

Weekly Challenge

This week the challenge is all about the views out your window. The Goal: We’ve already done one Out The Window challenge in May. But that was spring and now it’s the end of autumn, so let’s pick up that challenge again. Spend the week contemplating the compositions made by the windows in your house. […]


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.

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.
