Vince Ferguson – Burnside Bridge and Supermoon (Panoramic) – Digital Image

Here are a couple images I found over the  previous weekend of the so called Supermoon, rising over the Willamette River just South of the Burnside Bridge. The image below is just of the moon, while is was Super this past Sunday. Hope you’re getting into the photography as much as I am? Be sure to share with your friends and contacts.

Autumn is Here!


Autumn is here and like a tried and true Western Oregon Fall, the rain has returned with the new season. The leaves on the trees will be turning colors soon, creating an opportunity for vivid, colorful photographic landscapes. It made me think of some of the Fall color landscapes and abstract digital images I’ve created in the past. These were created at the Hoyt Arboretum and the Japanese Garden at Washington Park in Portland, OR. They are part of this week’s post as I get ready for the color change this year. Looking forward to visiting Hoyt Arboretum again this year in a couple weeks to create some more vividly colored images on my regular hikes.

Remember to join me every Tuesday I feature an artist whose work I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph. If you’d like to be a Featured Artist here contact me via email at kindmuse@gmail.com.

On Thursdays I will typically feature a photo essay of images created by other photographers that I’ve come across online somewhere and enjoyed.

These images in today’s post are available in print form on a wide variety of items, including coffee mugs, t-shirts, mousepads and various other items. View the images, and many more in my awesome 2013 Summer Flowers collection at my SmugMug Portfolio page.

More images to see, and prints available for purchase, by visiting my ViewBug profile.

And, as always, you can find me on Facebook.

Featured Artist – Sally Cohen


Sally Cohen - Harbor Lights, Oil on Canvas, 30" x 40"

Sally Cohen – Harbor Lights, Oil on Canvas, 30″ x 40″

I  want to feature one image this week. This is an image I created of Sally Cohen’s oil on canvas work title “Harbor Lights.” For what’s probably obvious reasons, this piece was really difficult to replicate digitally. It’s really dark, and because of the finish, it’s a little shinny. Which creates a lot of reflection. But if you zoom in really close, you can see a good size harbor town in the distance. I had to bring this piece over to my home studio in order to get a good image. The only place I had room to set up was in the Living Room. It only took 42 exposures in 2 hours!  Lot’s of lighting replacement before I settled on using the speed lights. My living room looked like a multi-room fort with all the black backdrops I had to put up to minimize reflection. I think I did a pretty good job? What do you think? Leave a comment below or rate above.

Sally Cohen is represented by the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery and the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, OR.

Calla Lily


I created these image over the Summer in July at a flower garden in Downtown Portland, OR. I was on the waterfront to photograph fireworks over the Willamette River when I came across this garden near a condominium complex. I’d never seen yellow or orange Calla Lilies before and immediately wanted to photograph. But my time was limited that evening, and the lighting at the specific time wasn’t very good. So I made a mental note to come back when I could come at a time with better lighting. A couple days later I went back and got these image above. Several different types for you to enjoy. I hope you do too? Please leave a comment below or rate above.

Featured Artist – William Park


William Park has been painting his whole life. As far back as he can remember, he has always loved to paint. This week I want to feature some fantastic oil paintings of birds created by William Park in Portland, OR. He has a studio near downtown that’s fun to visit. He even teaches drawing and painting classes at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on the Oregon Coast.

William Park is currently represented by the Rental Sales Gallery at the Portland Art Museum.

Featured Artist – Tangie Pape Belmore


I want to feature Abstract artist Tangie Pape Belmore for this week’s artist feature. Every time I see one of Ms. Belmore’s pieces, It’s difficult not to think of Jackson Pollack. Indeed Pollack has been one of Belmore’s influences, but she feels that she has taken her work much farther. I would have to agree.

Tangie Pape Belmore is currently represented by 4 galleries in Oregon. Portland Art Museum‘s Rental Sales Gallery, Gallery 903 in The Pearl District of Portland, Art Elements in Newberg, OR, and the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, OR on the coast.

I hope you like this week’s featured artist. Be sure to visit here every Tuesday for more information about the artists that I am fortunate enough to photograph on a regular basis. If you’d like to be featured here contact me via email at kindmuse@gmail.com.

Featured Artist – Jan Shield


I want to bring to light works created by Jan Shield as my featured Artist this week. Jan Shield is a multidimensional artist living out in the Newberg area of Oregon (Southwest of Portland). He taught at Pacific University for over 40 years and now is enjoying retirement at his self made Forest Preserve called the Dancing Trees Sanctuary. I’ve been out to his place several times to photograph the various art that he’s created. Besides getting to sample some delicious vegetables out of his garden, I get to see works he’s created out of clay, wood carvings, and acrylic on canvas. This week’s featured artist is truly an artist with any varied talents.

I’m excited to announced that Jan’s being represented by a new gallery out on the Oregon Coast. The Fairweather House and Garden gallery in Seaside, OR is the new gallery representing Jan Shield. There’s a new opening coming up on Sept 6th at the Fairweather Gallery too. He’s still represented by the Portland Art Museum’s Rental Sales Gallery as well as the River Sea Gallery in Astoria, OR. So plenty of opportunities to see this magnificent artist.

I wanted to feature Jan’s pieces in clay that he’s created, pictured above. These pieces are created in raku and oxidation. Then, for my 5th image here, there’s one new acrylic on canvas dyptych to check out. I hope you like this week’s featured artist. Click the rating button above or comment below.
