Late, as usual!

Well, I know...I am a bit late again this week. Tuesday is still the first part of the week though, right?

Last week was so much fun...I have to tell all about it. Last Wednesday I did, what I think of as my, first Spec Photo Shoot. I was invited to photograph at Quarry Hill Farm in Lakeville, CT. http://www.quarryhillfarm.com/ A beautiful Arabian breeding facility. There were two less than week old babies to meet, yearlings, mares and stallions. The owner, Rae Schwarz, could not have been more welcoming. The results from this shoot are an interesting mix of abstract, literal and some new stuff for me. I am excited, as I think I can only grow as an artist by doing these kind of shoots where I am not controlling how I am shooting as much. Unexpected things happen! If you want to see what unexpected things I can capture at your barn, just contact me to set something up.

In the next few days, the May/June issue of Rural Heritage Magazine should be arriving on shelves and in mail boxes. In it, is a feature article about my work. If you can't find it in a store near you, you can get a copy directly from the website - http://www.ruralheritage.com/

The summer long equine art show being held by HITS in Saugerties, NY in conjunction with the Fletcher Gallery of Woodstock, NY begins on Memorial Day. Works of art will be on display though out the community of Saugerties until August, when they will move into the gallery. September 10th all of the pieces in the show will be auctioned off with 50% of the sale price of the work being donated to the Family of Woodstock organization. You can see the work and find out more info about the show and auction here - http://www.hitsshows.com/EquineArtAuction/EquineArtAuctionIndex.htm
