The big news - the book is coming!

Book Cover-Bay Area Jazz and Bluesicians

Only one more photo to take and that will happen tomorrow to bring the total to 116; the layout is complete and it's going to the publisher this week. Looking towards a book release party on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. But you will be notified!! I know - things can always go wrong. What a fun project it has been!

On Show

Grace'sThis month's show theme at the SF Women Artists Gallery is Grace - however the artist wants to define it. So right away, I thought about the Jefferson Airplane - that's how my mind works - but didn't know how to get a photograph of Ms. Slick. I did however find a wonderful building in Chicago that I shot just for this show. It's matted in white in a 16 x 20" black wooden frame.

I have two other pieces in this show which are probably more what the theme intended. Grace Notes, which is a detail of the relief on the arch at the Golden Gate Park band shell - which I then colored and duplicated, placing the top one just a bit offset from the bottom one. The third piece is Monk at the Top of the Stairs, which surprising for me, is just a straight photograph that I took at the Contemporary Jewish Museum when I was walking up the stairway and saw him above me. These two are also matted in white and framed in plain black 1 x 20" frames.

The Reception is Thursday, November 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the SFWA Gallery, 3489 Sacramento Street @ Laurel. I hope you come and enjoy the evening.

Recent Sales

Two of my San Francisco shots were purchased in October, so, on the premise that San Francisco is 'hot' right now, I thought I'd share them here ('Across the Bay on the left; Telegraph Hill on the right).:
