I have found time to get in a few portraits and a couple of landscapes.
In addition, I've been doing charitable portraits for a group called Painting for Good Causes. I do portraits of foster children looking for homes, and children of deployed service men and women.
I'm also trying to devise a way to display my selfies project (see link above); a grid of about 28, 11" x 11" portraits on linen - no support, just the linen. I'm trying to figure out if I should use rivets, some sort of lattice framework or something yet to be thought of. Any ideas?
I'm afraid the only thing I have to dish this week is myself. I was working with one of my favorite photographers, Laura Stoecker, on Tuesday, taking photos for my website and other promotional uses. There were several points where she kindly suggested that I think happy thoughts . . . i.e., wipe that grumpy look off my face. I think I've looked grumpy for most of my life. And the ironic thing is - yeah, I often am grumpy or perplexed or mentally occupied - but even when I'm carefree, happy or amused - apparently I look grumpy. So, I took my lumps. I think she actually got me to genuinely smile - I'll find out when the proofs come back. But note to self: WIPE THAT GRUMP OFF, OK?
