To acknowledge Women's History Month & Women's International Day, the SF Women Artists Gallery's March show is called La Femme. Coincidentally(!), so is my first piece in this show.
This young lady was preparing her face in a doorway on a rainy morning in Havana. I was lucky to catch the shot from the tour bus on my first full day there. I have wondered about it since and suspect she is putting on her makeup outside, using her mobile phone as a mirror because there was no electricity inside. Will never know of course. I'm happy to say this image was chosen as a Juror's Pick. It's matted and framed in plain black wood at 28 x 21".
My other image selected to be in the show is called 'Nice View'. I shot it at San Francisco's embarcadero one sunny day last July. It's matted and framed at 18 x 24".
In the print bins:
The print bins at the gallery will include 4 of my works (below), matted in standard sizes and ready for framing. Two reflect the March show theme, Temperance Revisited and Señora Habana. Then to celebrate the season, Agave and AT&T Park with Juan Marichal.
The show will run from the 8th to April 7th. The opening reception is March 9th from 5:30 - 8pm at the gallery, 647 Irving Street, San Francisco. I won't make it this time since I'll be snorkeling in Roatán, but do come and meet the other artists see all 60 of the La Femme selected artworks. Looks like a wonderful show.
Some fun shots mostly from a recent art installation in Sacramento (plus 'Lucy' from a San Francisco Embarcadero walk earlier in the year).
About a year ago I was commissioned to do some photographs for a CD cover for vocalist Kitt Weagant. The CD has recently been released and has 5 of my photographs included. Two can be seen below. The music is very nice too!
The Books: Still selling to music lovers, Bay Area and beyond -- San Francisco Bay Area Jazz & Bluesicians
The two volumes of Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians, with a total of 251 local musicians photographed while they were performing are available on amazon.com (fastest way to get them online) or at www.bayareajazzandbluesicians.com probably a bit cheaper and takes 7 - 10 days to receive them. You can preview some of the pages on either site. If you prefer hand to hand consumerism, they can be purchased at Glen Park's Bird & Beckett Books & Records in San Francisco, Piedmont Piano Co. in Oakland and The Jazz Conservatory bookstore in Berkeley. One of my favorite non-profits, Jazz in the Neighborhood, also offers them for purchase at most of their performances.
And never out of date, Street Seens can still be had from blurb.com. It's full of street photography from my jaunts here and there in the world, and it's available in both paper and hard cover versions.
You can preview the whole book HERE. It's only available online - purchase details on the preview page.
