My digital art, “Tracks, Barge, Skyway Bridge, Chicago,” is at the Calumet Region and Northwest Indiana Art Exhibit until  August 15th.  You’re welcome to visit by appointment at the Bernard Gallery in Calumet College.  It is also at Artfinder 
https://www.artfinder.com/product/tracks-barge-skyway-bridge-chicago/

This artwork features a digitally altered view of the Chicago Skyway Bridge over the Calumet river.  The Chicago Skyway was built to be a shortcut from State Street in Chicago to the steel mills on the Southeast border with Indiana.   Transformation Is true of this region on a symbolic level as being my artistic media. The vibrant colors in my photos represent the vital role this industrial hub played in developing the Calumet region.

Re-sharing Sonoran Landscape no. 2, Late June by +C.J. Shane for #GoogleFirstFriday  
 
New:   Sonoran Landscape no. 2, Late June.  Oil on canvas, 30" x 40"
I'm into simple compositions with lots of surface design. In the three details, you can see the textured surface.

Crisscrossing Surf, Hawaii  
On an overcast day in Oahu, I became fascinated with the patterns made by the surf as it rolled in to Kailua Beach.  I waded in to photograph it.  With the cliff in the background this scene suggests to me the elemental beauty of nature.  More info at
