Artcrawl is an annual event that takes place in November, usually on the same weekend as Via Colori. It is an early Christmas shopping opportunity for collectors. It’s located in the warehouse district North of downtown Houston, Texas that stretches from the docks North of I-10 where Diverse Works used to be housed to the Hardy Nance Studios where over 50 artists have studios. This area used to be dodgy, but has become gentrified. My two favorite venues here are Mother Dog Studios and the Hardy Nance Studios. Those are where I spent most of my time. The 2014 Art Crawl is next Saturday.

At first I drew a blank over the topic “achievement”. Next, the image of a trekker popped into my head. A young mother selling hot dogs to raise money to pay for an operation on her son was on the same page, and it all started to flow. There are all sorts of achievements in life, big and small. Every stalk of corn pushing its way up through the dirt has achieved its journey to find the sun.
You may recognize the photo of a bride and her friends in a New Orleans bar. It is one of my better known ones.

This architectural oddity is located about a quarter mile North of Ninfa’s on Navigation in Houston’s Eado neighborhood. The area is in transition with large tracts of vacant land awaiting development. Some of these images were influenced by Geiger’s interpretation of the loading port on a garbage truck.

The best thing about a Renaissance Festival is you can be anyone you want to be. Here are photos of ladies or wenches in costumes of all sorts. All were shot on October 6, 2012, opening day in Plantersville, Texas. By the end of the day cloudy skies provided soft lighting.

Willow Waterhole is a flood control project on 290 acres. There are two ponds with the larger one portrayed here. Over 1 million yards of earth were removed during construction. A side effect of this dig is a beautiful park and wildlife habitat. Learn more here.
Due to my trip to Spain, I only had half a month of cruising Houston’s excellent art galleries. I did get to the opening of the Houston Fine Arts Fair. It was very crowded.
