  1. Greetings, I am interested displaying some of my art in the 2015 Boneyard Arts Festival. My focus is on photography, but I also write poetry, paint, create metal sculptures, and hand build electric guitars. My photography is inspired by nature, music, dreams, rustic life, and the supernatural. You can view some of my work at

  13. Hello,

    I am excited about having the opportunity to display my large painitngs in Boneyard Arts Festival. My skyart is 48 in x 48 in or 48 in x 60. It would be wonderful to show in a place that has good space and light for larger works. These pieces can make quite an impact with good energy alone, with each other, or with other artwork with other artists. They are very dynamic, textured impressionistic sunrises and sunsets of the sky over water and land. You can view my work at
