Shows, Walks, Water

It's been awhile since the last post. I don't have an editor watching over my blog so that frees me to subject you to a rambling update.

The outdoor art festival season has finished for the year. There were a crazy few weeks, including a two week stretch where I participated in three art fairs and two gallery shows. Whew. Along the way, I was selected for a few awards, a nice surprise:

Best in Show - Penrod Arts Fair
Best of Show - Carmel International Arts Festival
Second Place - St. James Court Art Show 3rd St Section

With the art fairs waning, I got reacquainted with having free weekends. Let me tell you, it is so nice to have free weekends. Off to the woods we went. We had some nice overnights in the Hoosier National Forest and around Lake Michigan.

During one of the days at Lake Michigan, I took some casual shots that I didn't think would amount to much. But after I got home, something unexpected about them stood out. Ideas come like that sometimes. When I'm not even serious, something different is revealed that could lead to a significant direction.

Up next: I'm participating in two holiday shows, one tomorrow and another next Friday. I wanted to offer something geared towards gift giving, so I've been making small prints framed to 8x10". Until now, I haven't ever shown my work so small. But, now seeing the completed work - they're really fun. After years of making bigger and bigger prints, it's nice to have something little and intimate. You can hold it in the palm of your hands.

Also, I'm teaching a Digital Fine Art Printing Workshop next weekend. There are still openings available. You can find the details about the holiday shows and the printing workshop at my events page.

And last, but not least: My project, Where the Fairies Are will be exhibited next month at Wug Laku's Studio and Garage. Whoohoo! More details to come.
