Sea Shell, 2003 by Frank Ayala
Franks is a friend from Rod Klukas' large format class at Scottsdale CC. Frank photographs the human figure mostly, which I don't have the opportunity to do. He is also an accomplished painter, which is something I have been kicking around inside my brain... taking some of my photographic images and painting them, abstractly, of course.
