Have you perhaps looked at one of my prints and thought to yourself, “well that would look lovely on one of my walls?” If so, why thank you!
I currently have three circular landscape prints for sale at Berkeley’s Collector Art Shop on College Avenue. The shop is a lovely gallery type space with a wonderful mix of work from local artists. If you have a chance you should stop by the store in the Elmwood section of Berkeley or check out their website.
I titled this one after the René Clement film, Plein Soleil (titled Purple Noon in english). It’s based off of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley. It’s better than the American version. Alain Delon is kind of like heaven. This is the trailer: Plein Soleil. I love the trailer narration – classic, grandstanding French. He calls Delon “romantic but remorseless.” Le grand succès du cinema français.
I shot this at Ocean Beach on a bit of a meander. It pulled up like this after I restarted the Imacon and I like it. No changes. No color correcting. I left my paper and a bunch of prints at the Post Office today. They are not picking up the phone. I don’t quite know how I zoned out that much. I didn’t realize until I got to Berkeley. Major fail.
