It has been a very creative year for me.  The last few weeks leading to the end of the year I have been preparing for various shows.  I have also been converting some of my home/studio space into a "gallery" .  I will be hosting viewings through the end of the holiday season.  

Getting the track lights just right...................................This is the untold story of being an artist.  The creative is the obvious; preparing for showing, photography, shipping, negotiating with vendors and galleries etc. are all part of the unseen part of being an artist.

Every artist cherishes a great photographer.  One who records the work not only with great technical expertise, but with an artistic eye.   Over the last few weeks I have had Lee, a wonderful photographer, record my latest work.

Reviewing the shots with Lee before uploading onto the computer.............

Some of the shots call for a step-up on the ladder.................

The experience of directing a photo shoot with a superb photographer is close to that an artist experiences in creating the work.  In the digital age we live in, the work of the photographer is priceless, and represents the artist in the cyberspace.
