This Saturday night I'm exhibiting two abstract photos at the
Art From The Ashes exhibit in Glendale. With over 50 other talented artists showcasing their pieces it looks to be a successful fundraising event to benefit the Deukmejian Wilderness Park. The Station Fire last year caused considerable damage, with the money raised there is hope the park will be restored again for public use.
Each artist has used items or inspiration from the burned area to create original art. Below is a sneak peek at one of my pieces. I found a burned and rusted bracket, froze it in a sheet of ice and photographed it. The end result was an interesting organic quality I did not expect. Bubbles formed, rust colored the water... I think I'll have to shoot more like this. Come by and see it yourself.
