Markets - Bread in Naples

 There are few smells that are more common to mankind than the smell of fresh baked bread.  But what attracted me to this image was the abstract design of how the bread was stacked for the customer to select from.

While taking a walk down the narrow streets of old Naples, you cannot help but notice the attention the Italians give to arranging their food. Not only is it attractive in smell, they also arrange the different shapes into art.

My Grandfather sold produce from the back of his truck to neighborhoods in Houston, Texas. I remember my Grandmother creating the display of fruits and vegetables to be sold.  She spent a lot of time arranging the different shapes and colors to excite the eye.  Seeing these displays and talking with the shop owners brought back memories of the love that goes into making each piece of produce shine.  

I made this image by photographing a first impression onto Fugi Velvia 100 ASA film.  My process involves first creating this "photographic etching" onto film that I will later convert into a digital or "printing plate" that will be read digitally to make a giclee print.This color image is made into two types of prints.  For a smooth look that reveals each tiny detail, I make a print onto rag paper. I then tear the edges of the print creating a deckle effect at the edge of the print. This type of print is very stunning framed by floating the print on matboard under UV filtering clear glass with airspace left between the print and the glass for conservation purposes.

To accent the movement and texture of a picture, I make a print onto canvas and then paint the lines with clear acrylic brush strokes.  A truly beautiful original piece that comes alive with a simple frame.  Glass is not needed since the print is finished with a UV blocking varnish.

Each print includes a Certificate of Authenticity describing the type of print and my original process of making each print.
