I wrote this article nearly two years ago…

I stumbled upon a LO-FI photo of mine over at Pinterest yesterday. It’s always great to see others sharing my work for me out there. I was curious though, where had the photo come from, because I knew I didn’t really have it up on my art sites. When I clicked on it, I was pretty excited to see that an article I wrote for Four Corners Dark (one I barely remember writing) nearly two years ago had been published and I had no idea it was out there! It talks about my love for LO-FI photography and some of the tools I’ve used to get my shots. Please take a couple minutes and check it out!

Signify has a new home!

No thanks to FedEx, Signify has finally made it to its new home in North Carolina. It was supposed to take just 2 days to travel from Kansas City to NC, which I thought would be great. However, the store where the box was dropped off failed to mark the package as “signature required.” The driver then delivered the painting to the WRONG house and just left it there. After some hunting…they finally tracked down the package today and my client now has the painting hanging in her home. Thankfully, my client had the patience of a saint through all the mess. SO glad this painting didn’t go missing for good. Take a wild guess who will be contracting UPS for their next shipment?

Original farm w/ windmill landscape

Two years ago I shot this farm out by Eudora, KS. I texturized the photo and printed only one 15×10″ print. Somehow, I’ve lost the file for this image, with no back up. Sunday I went back to the scene and re-shot this fantastic Midwestern landscape. The new textured photo is below. I like them both but they have different qualities. At least I can make some prints of the new landscape shot!

Catalina is making her way out into the world. I’m very happy to have this one go out to the first person that bought my abstract art! Thanks again Tina!


Forbes

Forbes by Jon Freeman Art

This piece will show in my next exhibit at Jones Gallery on July 1st. Forbes is different than all my other abstract works. Instead of using a gel medium or pumice for the texture in the red stripe area, I tore magazine pages into small pieces and collaged them on the canvas to create texture. I’m very happy with how this piece came out but it needs to be seen in person to be most appreciated.


Low Tide

Low Tide is one of my most recently completed works. Very happy with how this came out despite the fact that it is quite different from much of my other work. This one will show at the Glaspur Gallery First Friday in the Crossroads on July 1st.

Twisted Tree

Haven’t blogged on a photo in a while. This twisted up tree was found on a path we hiked while visiting my brother up in Ogden Canyon, UT. It looked pretty good in color but the change to B&W really did this shot justice with the clouds whispering in the sky and the contrast of the rocky cliff in the foreground. This one needs to be printed, mounted and framed sometime.


Everest

Everest is the latest large abstract I’ve completed. It measures 40×40″ on canvas. Please see my Abstract Paintings section for all available pieces and prices. Thanks!

Sean Scully

I really like this picture of Sean Scully standing next to a couple of his works. I’d like to work on canvas that is taller than me. Not exactly practical for me though…I’d have to rent a Uhaul just to exhibit such a work!

My email from this site was down today for a bit. If you emailed me I may have lost that email for good. Please drop me a line again if you emailed earlier today. Thanks!


Two framed digital abstracts available

I still have two digital abstract images available for sale. Two framed prints of another digital abstract have already sold and both clients were very happy with the look and framing on these.

The framed prints have been professionally dry mounted with a semi gloss black mat that just makes them look great! The prints are 20×20″ and the completed art with mat is 24×24″. Both prints are mounted in a great looking black, wooden gallery frame – wired and ready to hang. Each print is available for $200. Paypal accepted.

United States Penitentiary (USP), Leavenworth

This photo is approaching 1,000 views over at Flickr. I guess people seek out Prison photos? I just thought it had SUCH a presence that I had to take a pic of it when driving out to get some photos in a small town near Leavenworth. I added a slight texture to this photo. I wanted it to appear like a film shot taken in the 40’s or so. I think it passes!


2000+ views!

This photo of Sauer Castle just passed 2000 view over at Flickr. That Sauer Castle is a such a fantastic looking mansion! If you live near Argentine in the Kansas City area, you owe it to yourself to drive by this historic site.


Doing my part to support those that inspire me.

In support of the painter that first inspired me to put paint to canvas, I have purchased an original painting by Minneapolis artist, Shawn McNulty. Shawn’s work is truly amazing. I really like the contrast of light/dark in many of his paintings and I especially like the way he layers his work and allows the underpainting to come thru the finished piece. The piece I have chosen for my home is titled, Blue Rodeo. Blue Rodeo is a 24×24″ acrylic piece on canvas. I just purchased a house and I’m excited to get this piece hung in my family room. Pics of the painting in its new home coming soon…
