George Forss Photography – Hot Air Balloon

26 Sep

Houston, we have a Balloon afloat over Cambridge !

Yes, even though we have a Hot Air Balloon Festival in June in my town I was not able to get any photos of them during this year’s event.

But someone has a Balloon launch in Cambridge anyway.   I have been hearing the unmistakable sound of a Balloon hot Air machine over my house and one time I decided to investigate.   Sure enough, there was one right over the town.  So, the next time I could hear an approaching balloon I ran out the door and went to a likable place to photogragh it.  Someone in town has a balloon.

A good vantage point for this is the parking lot behind Hubbard Hall.   Here is a recent picture of the balloon ablaze over a tree that I like.  It is up in the sky amidst some chemtrails.  Phoey for this.  I am thinking of taking out these trails in a computer image enhancing program I have.   Here is the original version.  The trails do add some drama ?

I am selling my digfital pictures for $65. right now for an 11 x 14 print.  I make a good print on deluxe Ebson digital paper.

Check out my new show at the Copper Trout Gallery.  See my blog about this.

Ginofor Gallery Artists – George Van Hook

This artist is well known in my area and internationally and even internationally.  George has exhibited in Japan and other places.  The thing is that George Van Hook has paintings in my gallery.  He lives in my town (Cambridge, New York).

What this means is that I can sell his paintings for less.  I actually have four Van Hook paintings selling for 1/2 his world price for art.  These are left over from last X,mas special we ran.  I have two still lifes like the one that is illustrated in my blog about George here.  These are selling for $850.

Come to Cambridge to see these.  I am at …

George Forss Photography Copper Trout Gallery Show

14 Sep

I have a new show in my area starting soon.  You are invited for our reception.  The details about this show I will blog tomorrow.  It is late night and I am tired.  The photo here is my rendering of one of the unique sculptures the gallery owner, Nancy Krauss, has on exhibit for the summer.  Nancy wants me to do all of them as a project all its own.  This one is Princess Sirena.  Each sculpture is a different Princess.  The spelling is correct.  This is the way it is on the sculpture.  You have to see these.  Nancy should charge admission for her events. 

Good night all.  George

I want to feature the artists at my gallery and I decided to feature this image my mother took in the 1960 – 1966 period of her life.   My mother had the most uncanny ability of posing her subjects.  She would take her time – a long time – in getting her subjects to look just right before she would fire her camera.  The odd thing is that she was not very technical about cameras.  She was more like an artist working on a canvas (watching and posing her subjects until they looked pefect in every way).   She took pictures with a Box Camera to boot !

I sell my mother’s photography as a digital print product.   I have 84 of my mom’s images on a CD disk I also sell.  The disk production is $8.00 plus $2.00 shipping.   This is a special get aquanted price for the disk.

An 8×10 digital print is $65.  George Forss  38 West Main Street  Canbridge, NY 12816  www.ginoforgallery.com   georgeforss@yahoo.com  518  677-3288
