When we were in Palm Springs a few weeks ago we wandered through an outdoor art fair set up in one of the parks. I’ve sold my own work at these sort of things – they are usually filled with over sized abstract paintings you put over your sofa and steel sculptures for putting in the front yard ‘just so’. Not really my scene.
But buried in the middle of this particular show was the wonderful booth of Shawn Ray Harris from San Francisco. Yep, I had to go all the way to Palm Springs to find someone from my home turf. There is a lot of work on his site, what you really want to look at *in my opinion* is this link right here —> Hadaptation
The piece we ultimately decided to get was this great one of rabbits catching lightening bugs in the light of a light house in the distance. I’m partial to lightening bugs, rabbits, jars and many other little details going in in this composition. I also enjoy the florescent quality of the bugs. Here it is on our wall with other bits of things on our fireplace mantle. Sorry the pic is on the dark side- the winter light at our house is rather on the dim side lately. That rabbit perched on the mantle clock was already there before I added the new piece to the mix.
His work is priced quite reasonably and I really like the way he’s choosing to mount the photographs on the wood frames. It makes for a simple frame less solution on the wall. If like me, you also love the wonderful line of animal masks from Archie McFee you’re gonna love Shawn’s work with the masks.
