Alas, I come to a temporary end to my Panoramic fractal series. These most recent uploads represent the published panoramic works I completed over my "winter break" which I'm sad to say is nearing it's end. I head back out on the road in 3 weeks to destinations both near, very little near I'm afraid :-( and far and it's time to get a printin' and framin'.
I'm looking forward to visiting art festivals in states that I've never been to before (ie, Texas for the Bayou show in Houston) and I'm really looking forward to bring back detailed reports on the shows to you.

A good friend of mine and fellow artist, John Ashley has just created a very poignant short video clip that I'd like to share with you. A very talented photographer whose works can be viewed here on his website John Ashley Fine Art Photography. Thanks for sharing John.

I was at an art festival last year and was set up next to a very interesting photographer that specialized in panoramic prints. The unique thing about his works were that 90% of them were vertical. After talking with him about why he chose this format over the more common horizontal panoramas, his answer really made sense. He told me his secret in why he sold so well was that his vertical panoramas fit in more people homes where the more common wide format ones wouldn't. After thinking more about what he said, it made total sense.
If you admire panoramic art, be it photography, painting, fractals or some other type of art, you may not have enough room in your home to hang a really wide piece. If you collect art at all, wall space is a premium. But if you think about it, nearly everyone has a narrow unused space where a vertical piece could hang. Between doors, that narrow space in on the hallway wall, or between already existing art pieces. Brilliant!!
Sometimes the most obvious is clouded by old habits.
