Big Somethings


I've been putting a lot of things on the back burner for the last year or so, which is very, very bad because the pile of things just keeps getting bigger and bigger, but just now, suddenly, I've had a moment of clarity and one of those big things is getting moved to the front burner. That's right! A new project! While that may not mean anything at all to you, my faithful blog readers (all one or two of you), it means quite a bit to me because I've really been struggling with nailing down this particular project, and thanks to my momentarily clutter-free mind, I now know exactly what I'm going to do and I'm good to go!

But first, I have two somethings big to get to. First, along with Amanda Moore and Shalee Cooper, I will be jurying the second annual Holga Show at Saans Downtown, where Shalee is the curator. I'll have five Holga pieces on display when the show begins in November, and those same five images in the accompanying book. I'm super excited about it!

Second, one month from today, my Plastic Landscapes series (Holga/Diana works) will be on display at the Salt Lake Library's Sprague Branch. I have mostly everything ready to go, but I need to frame a few more pieces and I hope the frame shop can do them quick! I've also got a couple of other shows coming up but nothing I need to get to right away. I'll save that procrastination for next month.

I also am trying desperately to enjoy this beautiful autumn season before it turns to snow. I'm going to have my first slice of pumpkin pie today and over the weekend or perhaps tonight, I'm going to take pictures of some flaming red trees down the road. I love fall!

Is it possible to get a copy of the book if you live 2467 miles away and can't get to the show...no one in Maine is doing a Holga Show around here and I need inspiration as I have just started using a Holga. You have been a big inspiration to me.
