David Reinfeld Takes Root

David Reinfeld has studied with 20th century masters like Minor White and Aaron Siskind; artists who are famous for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. David was heavily influenced by these artists and has now created artwork that is masterful in it’s own right.

As you see below, David takes common views, in this case trees seen throughout the seasons, and transforms them into carefully composed pieces of artwork. The contrast of color and form is fantastic. Each branch and each leaf are like brush strokes. The longer we look, the more mesmerized we become.

Seeing images like this inspires us to find the art in the everyday. And when we struggle, we have David to return to for continual inspiration.

As always, these images are available for purchase as a museum-quality, limited-edition prints! Visit our store for more information.

Kerry Mansfield’s Seashore Solace

We all have our oasis from the hustle and bustle — our refuge from the outside world. Kerry Mansfield found hers high on the sea cliffs along the California coastline. For years Kerry returned to the same spot perched above the Pacific Ocean and relished in the surrounding solitude. In the process she began to capture intimate moments of others as they unwound in their own way. From this elevated vantage point, with skilled technique, Kerry melds individuals with their environment in an uncanny way. Human and natural elements combine to create singular expressions of tranquility.

Kerry writes: “We all seem drawn to a seashore, the crest of a tall hill, or even the sky, dangerously out of reach. When I find myself in these places, a sense of my own small place within the environment could easily elicit a sense of fear and unease, yet, inexplicably I find a peace not often found in the places over which I control.”

You can own these images as limited-edition museum quality prints. They come in three sizes: 13” x 16” (edition of 40), 20” x 26” (edition of 20) and 35” x 45” (edition of 10). If you love one, buy one. We expect these prints to go quick!
