Artist’s Favorites

I have been photographing since Christmas 1969. I have always sought out and photographed those experiences that bring harmony, grace and beauty into my life.

Over the years I have taken photographs that have transcended my experience and have endured the test of time.  These works I consider to be my favorites, if not my best. They span from very early in my career to the present and a wide variety of subject matter.

I will post them here, rotating them periodically. If you want to know more about them and why I feel the way I do, please e-mail me. I will gladly discuss my work. Click thumbnail to view larger image.

Armond!

I’m the lady who took advantage of your wonderful offer of the 34″ x 42″ jasper/amethyst print that is obviously one of your “favorites” and has “stood the test of time.” First I’ll tell you that the first payment went in yesterday’s mail–a bit early, but it works for me and I wish it could be more. I appreciate your generosity in working out this deal. It still startles me that you trusted a complete stranger, and it makes me happy to think that both people and your instincts are true enough that you’ve not been disappointed enough to be jaded.

And the work! We ABSOLUTELY adore it! And I am wishing so much to have just been able to gaze at everything hanging before me as each deserves to be seen–but it was getting late and the artist kept talking and talking, helping me to more quickly appreciate what I did see as he worked to find a home for one final piece.

I have to tell you this: Your booth was in such an odd spot but I felt led, perhaps, to go to the end of that row before ending my day’s serious viewing. We’re about the same age, so maybe you’ll appreciate more (God–am I REALLY getting “old”???!!!) that it had become something of a journey as I’ve been developing serious problems with my knee joints off and on this past year and after 3 hours on hot pavement, I was more than a bit uncomfortable. Certainly the entire day was quite satisfactory, but to take home such a prize (that my dear man got to carry an hour to the car) and it actually FIT in my daughter’s passenger car along with 4 of us! –not to mention our vehicle for the second leg of our trip (to Chicago) before heading home to the foothills of western NC.

Frank bought plywood at Lowe’s cut to size to sandwich it both sides tied-up and safely home and on the one wall where it would fit–in a magical room where it rules!

A long “comment,” I think, but an adventure I treasure nearly as much as the photograph on my wall.

Thank you so much, and God bless you. (I enjoyed your blog on Boat House Row–and is THAT a jewel!!!)

P.S. I can’t for the life of me recall the type of jasper in MY print–and did you say you’re also a geologist? Tell me–do you cut these stones yourself and polish etc? I’m quite fascinated–I have a special relationship with the stones myself. We may have more in common.

Hello Mr. Scavo. I am so delighted to have unearthed your website. I purchased “The Bathers” and “Moon at Rest” over 20 years ago at the Central PA Arts Fest. They were the beginning of a small collection of prized pieces of art work that I’ve collected over the years.

These prints have travelled with me from PA to FL, NC, CT, and back to FL. I get so many compliments on them. Looking at them brings relaxation.

We’ve recently moved again and today I finally decided to unpack my prized art collection. Your two prints were missing. My heart sunk. I never could read your signature and don’t have the pics to try to figure it out anyway. I went to the arts fest website and looked at every photographer’s pictures until I finally recognized those images that I have loved for so long.

Fortunately, they’re covered by the moving company insurance. I’m not sure how long it will take for the insurance reimbursement, but I so look forward to replacing them and will take the opportunity to get the next size up. I may purchase a snow print as well.

Thank you!!!

marie

Thank you so much for your kind words and your persistence in unearthing my information, especially after so long. The two photographs, The Bathers and Moon At Rest are two of my personal favorites. the good news is they are still available.
Again, It is so nice to hear from people who so enjoy my work.
