Stupid Human Trick

As this is a blog about photography and art, I guess it's about time I posted an entry on the photography side of the house!

Here's the good news:  After almost 5 years without a gallery since I moved from Florida to Kentucky, I'm dipping my toes back into the water.  In two weeks I will have 8 framed pieces in Kennydid Gallery of Photographic Art, located in lovely Midway, KY.  I'm excited to see many of my digital composite pieces back together again and framed no less.  There are also a few new pieces in the collection.

Here's the bad news:  I'm in the midst of printing the prints and took 5 of them outside to give a good UV spritz.  No good deed goes unpunished!  The white frosting like substance you see in the image below will certainly block the UV rays and also any visual representation of what was originally a lovely print.  Had I read the directions of the spray a little more carefully, I might have been given a slight pause at the fact that it was recommended you use the spray at temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees.  Well, gentle readers, it's a beautiful day today but it is at best 50 degrees outside so do as I say and not as I do!  Also it would have been the height of genius to test the spray on a single print before I went willy nilly.  I guess I won't be delivering my prints to the framer at lunch afterall...
Poor frosted Tropicanna!


  1. Thanks Renee! The right side of my brain agrees with you and has decided to try a little mixed media futzing around with it, but the left side of my brain is screaming about RGB values and the perfectly framed repetition of my digital work. They will never agree to just shake hands and get along.
