When I heard the news that I would be having my own show at the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s Environmental Education Center in Bristol RI for the months of March and April I was overwhelmed with excitement, and then the panic and fear set in. This was such a huge honor, and something I have dreamed of since starting this photographic journey. I can do this… Mom would be so proud and it’s because of her that I have been able to see and capture such incredible things. As I write this I am looking around at the numerous bags of frames & matting, as well as prints already disposed of because they simply aren’t good enough. A large room to fill with as many as 26-100 pieces… I can do this.
What to choose out of thousands of images, hours logged & trips taken? After already having spent weeks piling through external hard drives in search of the perfect shots I am finding that I have a lot that are truly unworthy of being hung on a wall for display. On the positive side a theme is developing and I’m beginning to understand what I’m all about as an artist. I am a Real Estate Agent. “Artist” never occurred to me prior to witnessing myself throw away work which would be acceptable on many levels, and I know that doesn’t make sense – unless you are an artist. To be comfortable with the style I am forming and the direction I’m heading into is incredible progress for this indecisive woman. Now she is seeing the light!
Opening reception is on March 6th 1-3pm. Admission fee is simply your presence. I’d love for you to join me, and I hope you will enjoy what I was inspired to commit to on photo paper, as well as metal prints & canvas. Thanks as always for your continued support of my work. You truly keep me inspired to learn more and improve. 🙂
