The Paso Robles Art Association currently has a show in the Showroom at Studios-on-the-Park until Sunday February 9th. I feel very honored to have had my two entries both place in the show.
I took 3rd Place with Lost Dreams, a photograph of a boat in Tomales Bay. I set out to deliberately produce this photography of this particular scene and I was very please with the resulting effort. I tried a few new post-processing techniques and ended up, after many hours, with the exact photography I had set out to create. I felt very gratified to have been accepted in to the show, and to have placed.
I entered a second piece, Autumn in Red I, which had previously placed 2nd at the Mid-State Fair photography competition in 2013. I was utterly flabbergasted to have heard my name announced a second time when this piece took 1st place in the show.
It was nice to have been selected by the juror, Brittany App of Templeton. She appears to have connected with my work, and I am grateful.
