I am excited to say that this piece got into a prestigious show in Austin.
I often wonder what art is. What is beauty? Who gets to decide what is beautiful?
And then I think... I got in! I got in! I got in! It is freaking Moma of Austin and I am in! Yeah!
Who would have thunk?
My family and close friends often don't get it. They are mostly literalistic and often ask me, "is this slightly out of focus?" I try to tell them that I like to paint with my camera. I take regular shots but every once in a while, I want to shoot something that looks like a mystery waiting to be unraveled. Don't tell me that if you saw this photo at a gallery or at a bank or at a restaurant, you would pause and stare at it. What the heck is it? It is mysterious, enigmatic and pleasing. Yellow makes you happy. And it is named after a drink. What more do you want?
Anyways. I am super happy and excited.
And I want to share my happiness.
If you want a print of any photo of mine, leave me a comment and tell me which photo print you want. I will print it, sign it and mail it to you. For free. You will have to provide a shipping address though. Depending on the response I get, this may take some time. So bear with me.
Also, I might have to change the rules on the fly. No idea how many people would be interested in this.
So the opening reception is on September 4th. You are all invited!
