Preview all forty Magnificent Mums in this keepsake, print-on-demand publication at MagCloud.

The photos in my Magnificent Mums portfolio celebrate the healing power of flowers and the beauty of chrysanthemums, commonly known as mums. The name, chrysanthemum, comes from the Greek and means golden flower.

My hometown, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, celebrates the beauty of mums with a spectacular floral display every autumn in the Gage Park greenhouse. I made many of the photos in this portfolio at exhibitions there.

A glance at any of these glorious blooms instantly raises my spirits. I hope that looking at these images delights you, too.

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.
