A great way to personalize your space is to surround yourself with artwork that speaks to you. I like to reflect the beauty of the outdoors inside the home. I prefer a local context. Today I'm highlighting the work of one of our local artists in the Roaring Fork Valley, Jim Paussa, who has been a photographer for over 20 years. Some examples from his portfolio:
Jim says, "I have been a photographer for 20 years. Primarily I’m a portraitist. My other passion is fine art photography. I like to be outside when the weather is raging because, as Francis Ford Coppola said, it's free special effects. I also love to photograph in the urban landscape because of the textures, shapes, and lighting I find there."
"I really enjoy the intimacy and interaction of small prints. On the other hand, certain spaces and images just have to huge. Digital printing technology has made the large print accessible and I appreciate both."
Here are some photos of his work installed in homes:
