charcoal on paper

This piece is currently being shown at Gallery360mpls.com . They have started showing my work and a solo exhibition is in the works, I will keep you posted!
My long Blogging silence is because I have been doing a lot of work on the "business" side of things and have not gotten much art done lately, or done anything interesting enough to blog about... Some of the best money I ever spent was recently hiring a professional photographer to teach me how to shoot my work. I wish I had done it years ago! The problem is now I have to re-shoot much of my work because I know I can achieve better images. My web-site is almost done and I am still hoping to have it up by the end of the year; and I have gotten a bunch of my work framed, one of my least favorite parts of the business (probably because it is so expensive!)
I am soon off to do a few weeks of volunteer bird/conservation work in Ecuador. I will be participating in a long-term monitoring project that is providing information about trends in bird species diversity in tropical forests in response to global climate change and land-use changes. I have my rubber boots and binoculars, can't wait to experience the cloud forest! Color and warmth.... and fodder.
My plan was to use this charcoal image to do a nice holiday card that I would send to all my friends, clients, etc. But instead there is just this blog page...
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a great new year!!
