Award-winning photos part of Solo Exhibition – Orchidaceous!

In February 2016, these two photos placed first and second in their category at the Royal Botanical Gardens’ 2016 Annual Orchid Show Art Exhibit. They’re two of twelve poster-sized prints of exotic orchids on view throughout April at Gallery4 at the Hamilton Public Library, Central Branch, 55 York Blvd. For this exhibition, we would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

These photos are from Orchidaceous! – my latest photo art portfolio. From August to November 2015, the twelve photos were also the featured exhibition at McMaster Innovation Park’s (MIP) Art in the Workplace.

About the Optimism of Color Blog

Every Tuesday and Friday,  I’m posting a photo or piece of art that I’ve created that reflects what I call the Optimism of Color. Through vibrant colors and bold visceral forms, these works shout out my joy at being alive, and my good fortune at being able to continue to make art after a near death experience.

Each of the images I post brings a smile to my face. I hope they bring you similar joy and laughter through the Optimism of Color.
