There’s a story to go with the postcard. I signed up to design the postcard, featuring a beautiful ceramic horse by Lainie Dearden. I thought I could photograph the horse using a print of a pasture photograph in the background, but I couldn’t print the photograph big enough – the horse is pretty large. So I combined a photograph of the horse alone with a crop of the pasture image to get the proportions right. The back of the postcard has the other half of the tree in black and white. Collaboration was a theme for the exhibit – working with Lainie was one of the more exciting things I’ve done in a while. The original photo and the horse are side by side in the gallery. I also have a beach stone image paired with ceramic stones by Monique Heymann.
Nice job, Tom. Good luck with the exhibit.
Thanks, Steve – the opening reception was really nice, with a nice turnout despite the weather.
Finally you ended up with a beautiful postcard.
Thanks for the kind words!
This is lovely. And the exhibit sounds fascinating.
Collaborating with the ceramics people is what made it exciting – doing the postcard design was just one part of it. Thanks!
good luck 🙂
