Other Tasks Today

Despite the impression my photo gives, the photos in the magazine look great!
Prompted by necessity and a very amusing article on Fine Art Views Online newsletter (yesterday's by Carolyn Henderson titled "Goat Hooves," I've been taking care of some of my mounting "to do's" today. I actually know a lot more this evening than I did when I woke up ... about book publishing, converting files, etc. Not exciting stuff, but it helps in the long run.

So no creative juices flowing today, but I have been thinking a lot about my 100 Faces book and working on re-photographing my 100 Faces. Given that, I suppose the fact that I just shot two awful photos of the spread about my project in élan Magazine's July 2011 issue ... might just scare you. But here the photos are anyway. I dropped my magazine while photographing it. Thus, the wrinkles.

Oh well.

Congratulations on the article in elan. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but it's a wonderful spread of your paintings.

Thanks Vicki. They did a great job laying it out and I was so relieved that my photos turned out okay. Phew!

They are accepting ideas/articles written in first person from artists who have appeared in their magazine previously -- in case you want to pitch that.
