In the Gallery

The piece above is our impression of the Crabbing Pier in Garibaldi, Oregon. It will be released shortly in our shop.

Conventional wisdom on social media says not to post images with any sort of framing or matting, as the one above is presented. I, we, understand why this is conventional wisdom. But I‘m past caring about conventional wisdom. We make art and share the beauty we see in life in order to express the joy we feel in being alive. And we try to make that art and joy as accessible as possible through social media and through sales of everything from large scale cinematic wall art to luggage tags. But the first order of impression is always the art on display, to be seen as it was conveyed—large, lively, living. This is true of all art, whether it’s a small scale painting of flowers or tag art on a railroad box car: it occupies a dimensional space in what we take for reality.

This is not some arrogance on our part. Just about everybody has something to share; we’re no different. And like everyone else, what we share is not for everyone. We don’t share it for everyone. We share it because it is our expression of living. We hope others may find joy in it. But if no one does, that’s okay, too. But it’s shared in a form that is intended to convey its expressive value.

And that brings us back to the conventional wisdom of how to present images on social media. Ahem, we don’t care. So, we’re going back to presenting our artwork in the way it is intended to be seen: as gallery art the way it would look on the walls of your world. We hope you enjoy it, share it, and might even consider acquiring it. But if not, that’s okay.
