Welcome to the Northstar Gallery blog. The blog focuses on the artist's fine art photography and the major themes of the artist's work. These include: Stone Spirits, a micro level exploration of the beautiful form, color and structure of select minerals. Flesh and Stone explores memorial art form around the world, especially looking at the long and deep mythical connection between flesh and stone. The Secret Life of Seashells offers a focus on the exquisite sensuous beauty of sea shells. Flying Ladies celebrates the beauty of classic automobile hood ornaments and their contribution to the Streamlining Design Movement. The blog will explore some of the technical and deeper philosophical aspects of the images that make up the Northstar Gallery. Please enjoy the images and the exploration of their meaning. Comments are greatly welcome.
