Sample Matte Size

Sample Matte Size

The above is an example of Canoe at Oscar Scherer, framed and matted (sorry if it looks a little cock-eyed, I had to shoot it from slightly above to minimize the reflection in the glass which gave it a kind of skewed look).

The matte is a standard 11″ x 14″ with a 8″ x 10.5″ opening. I bought the matte straight off the shelf in an art supply store–no custom cutting or framing was required.

As you can see, this leaves a nice, double-matte look to the print while allowing the signature and print number to remain visible.

Here’s a close up:

Signed Print

Note: Frame and matting is not included with the print.

Hurry, price increases on January 28 from $100 to $150. Click here to purchase.



Yesterdays PayPal link to purchase the print, Canoe at Oscar Scherer, was broken on both the FeedBurner emails and the RSS feeds. The link took the user directly to the PayPal login page, not to where they could purchase the print. The link on the blog itself worked correctly though.

I’ve finally added a facebook fan page. If you are on facebook, please add me, tell your friends, create a fan-badge, etc. I add the “etc.” because I’m a real noob over there and have no idea what I’m doing. 🙂


P.S: Tomorrow, I hope, I’ll be announcing a very limited print run (25 prints) of one of my photos. The first person to order will receive print 1/25, the next 2/25, … until all 25 are sold. If all goes well, I may do this next month with another photo.

New Meditation: Awakening To Enlightenment

Awakening To Enlightenment

PALM BAY, FL–I don’t know why I had such a hard time getting this meditation out–either I’d screw up the sound quality or I’d over explain the instructions–but I finally got it right. This is the meditation that I used to stabilize my “enlightenment consciousness” during those precarious three weeks of my awakening. I first mentioned it the September 21st entry, Waking Yourself Up. Part IV: The Practice.

You can download the meditation here.

New Video: The Hourglass of Enlightenment

The Hourglass of Enlightenment

GUM SPRINGS CAMPGROUND, OUTSIDE WINNFIELD, LA–I’ve uploaded a new video: The Hourglass of Enlightenment. This is the second (of three total) where I have been interrupted by the vocals of some animal. The first, in What is (and isn’t) Enlightenment, I thought I heard a kitten meowing out in the woods. In this one, I don’t know what it was: a huge frog, a loud duck, Big Foot? I dunno.

Anyway, enjoy.

A Videos Page

Video Splash Screens

LAKE CATHERINE STATE PARK, AR–I’ve added a new page to the blog for videos that I create during my travels. One reason that I’ve been camped at Lake Catherine for so long is that I wanted to shoot a couple videos before I head to South Florida for the holidays (and the campground is empty, and it’s cheap with the winter rates). Ok, three reasons.

Anyway, check out the videos. Aside from the opening and closing credits, all are un-edited first takes (Hike out to the woods, push the RECORD button, talk, push STOP, hike back). I figured they’d be good practice for when I start giving talks (probably right after the holidays).
