We're halfway through September and a week away from the official start of fall. Football (High School, College and NFL) kicked off the last couple of weeks and in Ohio the shift in seasons is evident. In the art world in west central Ohio and elsewhere, it also happens to be show season. One of my photo resolutions for 2012 was to put my work on display more than I have before and part of that requires entering shows. Although my blog posts have been spread out this year, I've been producing a lot of work, it's just that it's all been part of bigger projects that I've not been ready to unveil to everyone yet. However, for those of you that would like to see some current and past work, here's where you can find me right now:
