Cleveland Metroparks Asian Lantern Festival - 2019

Hundreds of lanterns are placed across several destinations of the Zoo including the Welcome Plaza, African Savanna, Wilderness Trek, Asian Highlands, Waterfowl Lake and more. This year’s festival features more than 40 all-new, large-scaled illuminated displays featuring hundreds of individual and interactive lanterns. These include a walk-through 100 foot long shark tunnel, 30 foot tall giant panda and an expansive display of Chinese pagodas.


This post is delayed a bit, but I sold my first piece, to someone other than a family member. A 20"x30" print on metal of the Golden Gate Bridge was sold to a buyer in Chicago. He was really happy with the finished product from FineArtAmerica.

The white circle is a reflection (camera flash, I assume)

Here is the photo that was printed.

Art for Sale

Over the past several months many of my family and friends have suggested I look into selling some of my artwork and photography. I’ve been pulling together some of my favorite photos and have created a website to develop my portfolio, and have also setup a profile with a print-on-demand provider.  I bought a print on canvas, Fairport Harbor Lighthouse, from this provider and I’m very happy with the quality of the print.

I now have 16 images available for sale. They are available on canvas, acrylic, metal, paper, and greeting cards. I’ve been working on a series of photos that look like paintings - and would look great on canvas (hint, hint). These photos are technically landscapes, but the process I use turns them into abstracts.

On this website you can click the "i" in the upper right corner of the images to find the direct links of photos for sale. Most of those for sale are in the abstract or landscape galleries. You can access the store directly from this link.  For those of you in the design industry, there is a sister site at with deals for bulk orders.

Thank you to my family and friends for the kind words and support as I’ve developed my hobby. Right now it’s enjoyable. I don’t plan to make a living off of this, but if I can make a few bucks I won't complain.
