Home, sweet home

A zillion years ago, I wanted to explore real social commentary without waving fingers, and getting dogmatic, dramatic or stupid. I let that all go to do left-brained geometric abstraction, but my cameras have never really let me forget the story I need to tell.

I love old buildings as subject matter for many reasons. They stand still and you don’t need them to smile. When I was in Montana, I shot gorgeous landscapes in Glacier, but my favorite image is one that I shot not far from my mother’s in Shelby. Not a building, but I have some of those from this trip, as well.

About artinsmallplaces

I am Daryl-Ann Hurst, (also using Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst), an artist and writer, who is also interested in antiques, travel and the outdoors. I am hoping to use this blog to meld all of the interests. I was born and raised in California, have a BA in art, have been published in the New England Antiques Journal and have photography on the Gulf of Maine's website. I have shown paintings and prints nationally since 1978.
