Through Your Window is my business where I restore and refurbish antique window frames and then by adding my photography I produce window photo art. What we see through our window is something beautiful to us, when we want time to forever stand still. We also see endless possibilities and adventures calling for us. Let’s look at that every day and be inspired!
All of the window pane frames are one-of-a-kind. They are not standard size window frames. The photo prints are made specifically to fit each frame. You would be purchasing a truly unique piece of photo art, as the window photo frames are restored and hand-finished, by me! No two frames are alike, even if the image is the same, the size, frame and refurbishing would always be your original art.
Romeo and Juliet
“The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away.
It is always on his doorstep.”
“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad,
whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost."
When I sit at my desk in my office and stare out my window, honestly, I’m looking at the other houses in the neighborhood! However, I do get the chance to see the beautiful trees changing from season to season. I get to see the rain, the snow, the flowers, wind-blowing leaves or the wonderful blue sky and big puffy white clouds with the sun shining through. No matter what season it is, when I look out my window I experience beauty, life and change before my eyes, a true photo vista.
Not everyone has the opportunity to look out a window in their office or living space. If you could choose anything to look at ‘through your window’ what would it be? For some people looking at water makes them feel at peace or maybe it makes them want to skip rocks or go fishing. For other people, looking at the mountains makes them want to go hiking or skiing. Or maybe for some people looking at an old truck or flowers reminds them of spending time with their grandparents. If it resonates with you or brings about great memories, or inspires you to do something - then why not look at it every day ‘through your window’?
