Fresh Start

Fresh Start

Writer's Block?  The theme for the February show at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery is 'Fresh Start'. I took this photo to meet the theme challenge and although I named it "Writer's Block" on my website, I called it Fresh Start for the show. All depends on whether you're in a 'half-full' or 'half-empty' mood I guess. In any case, the juror chose to grant me a Merit Award for it. It's a 15 x 12" print in a black 16 x 20" frame.

New Day On The BayMy other submission accepted into the show is called "New Day On The Bay" and was shot off the back of my boat one very early December morning. Of course I spent hours stylizing it because that's the kind of art I love to make. This one is 18 x 14" and in a 20 x 28" light wood frame.

The opening reception is Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7pm at the gallery, 3489 Sacramento Street, San Francisco. The show will be up until March 5.

Other new pieces: In the last month I've added two other new works to my website portfolio. Look for Paper Trees and Swimwear under 'Favorite Photos' on my website. Both, a bit of whimsy, were taken early this year when a store window in North Beach caught my eye.

Stillpoint Gallery: I submitted 6 pieces for entry to the Stillpoint Gallery's Online Exhibit, Still Life: Ordinary and Extraordinary. All were accepted and can be seen on page 13. The exhibit will be available online from February 9 to April 19.

I'd love it if you forwarded this to a friend. As this is my first attempt at what I hope to be a monthly newsletter, I'd be grateful to hear any comments and suggestions. And, of course, if you don't want to receive any more, you can unsubscribe below.
