Along the Road Leading to Hagerman Pass

Saturday, January 30, 2010

One day on a painting trip over in the Aspen and Basalt area I braved a lone excursion over Hagerman Pass in the trusty ole white Honda Pilot. I was scared, very scared at one point, but the frightening yet exciting adventure was well worth the painitings and photos I got!!!

Amazing Village Photos Turn Into An Optical Illusion

Wednesday, January 27, 2010
In Felice Varini's newest installation, the buildings in the town of Vercorin in the Swiss Alps contribute to this impressive piece. The set was called Cercle et suite d’├ęclats. But what I recon interests you the most, is how all of this was turned into practice. Well, the pattern was projected on the town from the vantage point, and then traced and painted. If you shoot a photo from the same spot in daylight, you’ll quickly realize how the town looks flat – almost like a postcard. The interesting part is how he got the whole town to approve this? Don’t miss the panoramic view on Varini’s website. More photos from different angles are included below…
