Rustic Nostalgic

For as long as I can remember, I have been enchanted with exploring the past, and creating images which speak to our sense of nostalgia for times gone by.  I am especially interested in images that recall the Spanish and Gold Rush eras here in California and the western states.  The images in this gallery are mostly digital art, photographs which have been “enhanced” to project a “painterly” feel which best suits the subject matter and best reflects the mood I felt when capturing the photograph.
