Weekend in Virginia

I just got back from a wonderful weekend in Virginia.  I spent all day Saturday judging their print competition, then put on a 3 hour program for the members that night.  It was a very long day.  Everyone there was so friendly and welcoming.  I’m trying desperately to find some pics from Saturday to post – but nothing so far.   I was hoping to update my blog while I was there, but free time and internet access kept eluding me.  Even worse, I was stuck inside all day and when I did have a few minutes of free time, it was raining outside.  After a four hour layover in Philly, thanks to mechanical issues – I reached the hotel at 11:30 Friday night.  Since it was so dark out and I was exhausted from travelling all day – I didn’t notice any of my surroundings.  When I got up the next morning and looked out my window, this is what I saw: All I had with me was Heather’s point-and-shoot… and photographing through a hotel window is tough – however, I did manage to take this one image, which was fun: Luckily, the travel home when MUCH more smoothly .

Grand Opening

Last night was the opening reception for my exhibit at the Courtyard Theater in Plano.  It is such a spectacular venue!It was quite a thrill to see so much of my work on the walls in one place.  They layout also allowed us to group the work into similar pieces – giving it a nice flow.  For me, the highlight of the night was unveiling everyone’s new portraits and getting to see their expressions.  If you missed the reception, I hope you will find the time to swing by the exhibit over the next few months.  The work will hang through April at the Courtyard Theater in historic downtown Plano.

The Boys

Its been a while since I’ve done portraits of the boys, so I managed to drag them into the studio for a few shots this weekend.  Gotta get em when you can! Thought I better get one last shot of the winter outfit before the spring gets here. This was my favorite shot of Deano.  I loved the light on his face- plus he had a very “Dean” expression.  Oh well, that’s gonna have to hold me until I can bribe them into the studio again at some point.
