Sit And Wait

Ah, the show....
The Springfield Art Museum where the show was to start on May 1st is still in the process of remodeling. Dust, workmen, general confusion, and no visitors..........
So, hopefully, I will get it hung by Monday of next week.
I know that some of you are in the area so if you were planning to come over you still have plenty of time to do that. Once up, the exhibit will hang through the end of June.

You know, I really should start calling them "exhibits"  or "exhibitions" at least here on the blog.
Since I think of them as "shows" ie,  "showing my work" I have tended to call them that. 
But here, on the blog, that has led to some misunderstandings.  Some folks have thought that I make a living by "showing" in the arts and craft fairs (shows).  Trust me, nothing could be farther from the truth. I was not kidding in my earlier post about the lady who desiccated field mice and dressed them in her hand made outfits. If that is not enough to put you off art fairs forever I do not know what is. Put me off at least, I did notice that she was selling them....strange what people will buy.

OK, pull up a nice chair by the window, relax, meditate, and maybe work on the blog a bit today. Since I sweat blood in the darkroom for 2 weeks I have earned a bit of a break.

Very gorgeous portrait! It has a very "old fashioned" yet current feel to it thanks to it being in black and white. I really like how the shadow plays in this picture. It's like shadow, itself, is sitting in that chair.

Thank you, I am glad that you like it. I tend to think / see in the abstract so black and white is a good fit since it allows me to "suggest" things that are unseen.
