Just Published – my new photo art portfolio is now available on Magcloud – $10 a copy includes free digital version!

Although I don’t drive, and view modern cars strictly as utilitarian modes of transportation, I delight in visiting classic car shows and car museums.

Camera in hand, I spend hours strolling amidst the stunning beauties of a bygone era, stopping frequently to capture the elegant detailing and design of these vintage cars.

Hood ornaments – those stylish embellishments that largely disappeared from cars in the 1960s – enchant me. I love seeing the flights of fancy in the sculptural winged goddesses and flying figures that adorned the earliest automobiles, most often on radiator caps, and the futuristic vision in the sleekly contoured animals and airplanes that graced the hoods of cars in the thirties, forties and fifties.

My latest photo art portfolio presents 40 of my favourite photos of hood ornaments. Hood Ornaments is available on Magcloud  – $10 (US) a copy includes free digital version.

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.
