A few days ago I posted this video to give a little more explanation on my photo process. I am including here with the video repost the contact sheet of the raw photos from that same day. If you have questions or just want to chat about this let me know.
Last night I did a little snip on this process and was asked to cover it a little more in depth. Today I am giving you an inside view and tomorrow I will post the contact sheets of today’s photoshoot for you to view. Hope this video gives you some insight. As always, open to … Leap ForwardStreet Photography and Process

It’s no small thing to see the self. I live in a world of constant distractions. I live in a world that begs me to examine how other people see ‘me”. But do I see myself, really? Am I studying external shapes and colors or do I see myself? Over the past month I’ve found … Leap ForwardSelf Portrait in a Million Parts
It’s a powerful thing to process your life through art. In some ways I wasn’t really fully aware what I was processing and it has become more clear in this time of reflection. Much of my current art I thought was related to loneliness and desire. I guess I also didn’t realize I was only … Leap ForwardComing Out of the Closet, In My Heart
Moving elements over from patreon.com slowly and decided to create a video library here of the process over 2 weeks of painting the latest Joan of Arc. This is about an hour of video over all, so perhaps more than you wanted? HAHA. Well the good news is you can skim through some of it … Leap ForwardUnderstanding the Process Better
This post is a stream of consciousness so it goes back and forth a bit. It’s a decision making progress externalized. That in mind the writing may be hard to follow so I recored a short video covering the points. Mixture of excitement over doing the work anchored in my usual pessimism it will be … Leap ForwardDebating the Value of Specific Exhibition Opportunities
Great day. Finished the website as I had intended. Added much more to the store. Set up my social media for the next week to run on it’s own. Then I got home and took a short nap. When I woke up a storm was starting to come in and the sky was darker. The … Leap ForwardChromatic Explorer Shopping
I was finishing the last page of my website build today and scheduling my social media posts for the next week. Fun right? The parts of having an art studio we never covered in school. Ran across this piece and immediately gave me flashbacks to that wonderful day. Thought I would share a few elements … Leap ForwardMercado La Laguinilla
More reflecting on what I have accomplished and where I am going.
I sent a message to a friend in California today asking for advice on social media marketing. It’s not a big deal, but it got flashed back to me that I hadn’t been keeping up with what was going on in their life and I wasn’t being very socially graceful. Directness is often a problem … Leap ForwardEating Emotions
It’s been about 5 months since my exhibition closed in Ventura CA and things have changed a lot. I am now in Mexico City DF, Mexico working my studio at every angle I can to keep it going. It’s been a phenomenal experience and of course a challenging one. I love to watch this video, … Leap ForwardReflecting on Progress
Update: The store is now live by clicking on Photo or Paintings in the menu! As I have mentioned before, right now most of the sales component of my artwork is being handled through DABart and online at artsy.net. It’s great exposure and lovely to have representation via a gallery. The problem that arises … Leap ForwardThe Store is LIVE!
I’ve made great progress this week in bringing things back into my studio that I am paying other people for. For instance, the patreon.com site is being moved inside of this site chromaticexplorer.com. I was paying 10% of my earnings to patreon.com to host my site and provide the option of membership subscriptions at different … Leap ForwardThings are Poppin’
Today was a unique experience you’d be hard pressed to find the opportunity to do in CDMX. I was contacted by a developer who works with historical buildings around El Centro in Ciudad de Mexico. They have several buildings which are currently slated to be rehabilitated, but due to the historic nature of the buildings … Leap ForwardTour of Abandoned 19th Century Buildings
