I live in psychedellic color
Not purely do i see monochrome, but my eye has learned over the years to instantly change colors to different tones of greys, blacks, whites in my head. Its useful as a photographer and painter.
Art has to be a part of you not just a way of making money where i live. There aren't enough people that value art. Its strange, i live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Every type of landscape, some that can't be seen anywhere else on the planet. Yet i feel its under appreciated, not fully part of the fabric of those here; and absolutely looked over by outsiders. That leaves more untouched for me i suppose, but feeling like an over-exuberant salesman when asked what its like here. Hopefully(at the pace of a snail so far) I can capture it for the community here. Stay tuned. Im working on it.
In the meantime....
