Painting with Light

Photography isn't my area of expertise but I couldn't resist sharing this incredible photo from my husband's weekend class "Painting with Light". Students worked with various light sources in the dark (flash lights, strobes, holiday lights, etc.) to create a variety of portraits, writings, ghost images, etc. The photo below was taken using a multi flash strobe and extended exposure as I walked through the scene. It resembles the imagery in "Nude Descending a Stair Case" by Duchamp.

Pop Art

Elaina shows off a recent project - a Pop Art mirror. The project used about two dozen cans. The tricky part? Not cutting yourself on the cans as you open them and trying not to hit your finger while nailing them down. Otherwise, a quick fun project for most ages. If you like the project but would rather not create the mirror yourself, check on under "Pop Art".  For $200 and up, you can have one of your own.
