Obstacles and Opportunities
February 06, 2016 • 1 Comment
Wow, it has been more than a month since my last blog. 2016 started with obstacles as some physical issues sidelined me and my camera for several weeks. No worry though and I am back and going strong. I have been taking a few new winter photos and editing older shots and making plans for more. By Friday, the 12th, Kiko, me, and our 19' travel trailer, are headed to Santa Fe for a couple of weeks of: making landscape photography magic, skiing, and visiting with a dear friend. We will visit Elizabeth Anglin (Amy Liz) and deliver some prints of my shots for her gallery, Starshine, a Healing Art Gallery, in Madrid. Starshine opens next month and I will be there for the opening party. More details on the opening will be forthcoming.
And there is good news I have to share. On Thursday, February 4th, I was the first guest artist at Alpine Wellness, and it was Alpine Wellness’ debut on the First Thursday Art Walk. I was there to meet folks and while we did not have time to publicize it, we had some interested buyers and it was fun. I like fun.
My work will be up on their walls for another month or so. Alpine Wellness was the first, and in my opinion the best medical and recreational marijuana shop in town. Unlike the other shops that are cramped and stuffed, Alpine Wellness has plenty of space and lots of walls. It is an unusual location to be sure, but I was interviewed on the local radio station and the folks in the arts community here have helped publicize it. In Telluride, there are a bunch of shops and restaurants which use local paintings and photographs to adorn their walls so it is not so unusual. Ah, my first exposition.
I just happened upon your sites , good luck I may add, and I wish you the best ! Your doing a great job & you've helped to inspired me to quicken my dreams into the art world myself ! I've been out west and it's beautiful ! I live in Ohio & I do hope to take my daughter out west so she can see it , Some day! And as for my type of art, I hand engrave leather and make pictures using various teachings like spooning etc. Best of everything to you Sir !
