happy new year

I thought I’d pop in and wish you all a very happy, if belated, new year!

Twenty eighteen has been pretty quiet for me thus far although I am looking forward to being a part of a new group show opening next week at Middle Ridge Winery and Tasting Gallery here in Idyllwild. I’ve also embarked upon what I hope will be a longterm exploration of painting and mixed media. The truth is, I’m finding it quite humbling and even a little daunting to be taking up something entirely new at this stage in my life and yet I also believe that it’s exactly this sort of challenge that keeps us young. If nothing else, I’d like to think that my efforts will result in a more-developed artistic sensibility and ultimately help me become a better photographer.

As for this space, it has meant too much to me these past eight years for me to ever abandon it. Even so, I do feel my attention shifting towards the blog on my new-ish website and it’s there that I plan to focus most of my photo-sharing efforts in the coming year. I’d love for you to join me if you are so inclined!

In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time. ~ Leonardo da Vinci

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has spent time here in my little corner of the Internet this year. That you follow along and take an interest in my photography means a lot to me.

My hope for 2018 is that it be a year of optimism, truth, integrity, and courage. Happy New Year to all!
