The October show at the SF Women Artists Gallery carries the theme, Nurture. All three of my submissions were accepted by the juror, so you get to see them - here, but even better at the gallery. Above is 'Excursion', which started as a photograph this summer of some very small kids being taken across a large plaza, presumably on their way to a fun-filled activity. I played with some filters, turning it into a black and white 'sketch' but left some color on the tee shirts. I've done a few since in this style, so I would be interested to know your reactions. This one is framed in white with white matting.

Blessed SangriaOn the left is 'Blessed Sangria' caught on a summer afternoon at a Mission district eatery with a wonderful mosaic called Gracias Madre - the name of the restaurant as well. Seems nurturing to me. Framed in black with white mat. Story TimeBelow right is called 'Story Time' and was actually shot at the gallery during another show. This loving gathering took place on the steps outside. Also matted in white and framed in black.

The Reception is Thursday, October 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the SFWA Gallery, 3489 Sacramento Street @ Laurel. I hope you come and enjoy the evening. I'll be there early but have to leave before 7:30, so hope to see you before then.

New Works

All my 'new works' this month involved shooting musicians for my book and yes, I did actually get to Shoot the Piano Player - several times in fact! I've got 85 or so done and about 20 more to do in hopes of getting the book out by Thanksgiving. It's the most fun project I've ever done. Here are a few since last month:

Look for more details in my November issue.



I donated another print to the SF Bike Coalition for their benefit. They chose 'Schwinn' below. Hope the new owner is happy with it. (Shot in Sonoma this summer).
