Thank you Tokecrazy, Pete and Green Passion for sharing my art....

 

20 years ago when I first attempted cannabis imagery I was fortunate to have spent a lifetime shooting wildlife and scenic images, but most of all flowers like this Rose. It was my first experimenting with a new Lens Baby selective focus lens.

..you see by then, I had shot using just about every technique I could, as well as every subject I could find, and was getting stale searching for something new and fresh! Never had I done much cannabis; though I'd grown it for years-who'da thought! It wasn't long until I was sharing images like this Mandala Hashberry across the web forums..

I was healthy at that time and traveling to juried art shows selling my art prints and note cards, no cannabis. Something I enjoyed the hell out of, but that was costing me money. Sales were not setting records. I struggled until I started shooting hummingbirds, like this from around 2000, I and then did OK.

My notoriety grew leaps and bounds on the Internet when I post the first hummingbird and cannabis, this one, without the logo and text, used in my avitar:

But it caused a shit-storm of controversy..some people thought I was trying to deceive them and it was fake.  I offered original un-edited copies to several sites to confirm it being a single frame capture taken in one moment in time.

 

For the first time in 20 years I am again going to try selling my art. My fine art prints will be offered in my booth at the Emerald Cup December 13th -14th 2014 Santa Rosa Ca..My macro imagery and hummingbirds the main focus of the show. I hope to see some of you there. I will also have my website www.doobieduck.com set up by then to offer the prints show at the show.

 

Wish me luck, you have all made this possible; if it weren't for you I would not had the drive to keep moving forward with my art. thank you for your likes, friendships, and comments over the years, Jeff

Plant boy, Pete, KD..thank you guys..I invested the wifeys' nest egg to do this, hope to pay her back...if not that could be disatorous for me..lol.I'm looking forward more to metting people; that will be so cool after 20 years on the web with some of them.

 

I will be selling professinally mounted prints pressed onto styro board, some as large as 16x20 and 11x14. I do not print any larger than that unless special order. Also I will have nice 4x6 image note cards-to go with those a 12 box set of hummingbirds or macros. Here are examples of some of the images I chose for offering, but I'm printing about 30 different images. Peace..DD
