Self portrait in Blonde using the Prisma app
Category Archives: Uncategorized
This is a iPhone photo taken at NY ComicCon 2016 last weekend. I used the Prisma app to filter the photo and imported it into ArtRage to create the paint on canvas effect. This was my first ComicCon and I was amazed by the creativity of all of the cosplayers. I will be posting more photos from ComicCon soon.
Last month when I went to Boonton’s First Friday I took some quick Hipstamatic iPhone photos of Boonton Arts’ Dog Days of Summer, a public art installation showcasing artists’ custom designs on life sized fiberglass dog sculptures displayed along Boonton’s Main Street. I love the creativity of the dogs, especially the use of the wild colors. The exhibit is up until October 10th, when the dogs will be up for “adoption” with proceeds benefiting Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter, Montville Animal Shelter and future Boonton Arts community projects.
Last weekend I saw Freedy Johnston and Jeffrey Gaines perform at the Van Vleck House in Montclair, New Jersey. The event was part of Out Post in The Burbs, an organization that holds musical events in the Montclair area.
The Van Vleck House and Gardens was a beautiful place to hear music. We were able to take a quick walk around the garden before the show, where I was able to take couple Hipstamatic iPhone photos. The atmosphere was calm and serene, with butterflies flitting around while the music was playing.
I enjoyed the music of both the performers and the stories they told between the songs. Amazingly (and luckily) the weather held out until the very last song. I am hoping to visit the Van Vleck House again to explore the gardens a little more and get more photos.
