My Flights of Fancy Video Now On YouTube

Click below to watch (3:11 minutes)

This short video highlights some of my photos of hood and fender ornaments that I made over the past dozen years while visiting classic car shows and car museums in Canada and the United States.

Hood ornaments enchant me. I love seeing the flights of fancy in the sculptural winged goddesses and flying figures that adorned the earliest automobiles and the futuristic vision in the sleekly contoured animals, rockets and airplanes that graced the hoods of cars in the thirties, forties and fifties.

Some of the images in this video have been featured on this blog and in exhibitions.

Eighty of the photos from the video are available in keepsake, print-on-demand publications with free digital download for $12 each from Magcloud. Click to preview Hood Ornaments and Hood Ornaments 2.

My 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 surviving five cardiac arrests in 2011.

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.
