A Flutter of Activity

Last week was a flutter of activity.  I needed to turn my focus toward the Missoula Art Museum Auction and finish off my other website for it’s opening.  The art auction was a huge success for me.  My framed photograph of the Helmville Rodeo creating somewhat of a bidding frenzy and drove the price up, finally going for $1900.  This is very good for the Missoula market, photography in particular.  Mine becoming the 12th highest priced piece to sell of the evening of 110 pieces being sold.  I am now being offered shows spots around Missoula area. This sort of establishes me as an artist in this region of Montana.  My cyrphoto website is now structurally in place, with just a minimal amount of on going tweaking to keep it operational.  I now have the month of February to begin to focus back on this project.

Yesterday I began a conversation with Cheesecake painter artist Paul Richmond whom I have admired for such a long time.  It just started out with a simple hello and the day ended with him sending me a selection of his images to become the next profiled artist on the project.  I was up well into the night creating his gallery.  It feels so good to be back here again.  I have missed this community.  I working on an article about Paul and will have it all posted later in the week.

I have also lined up several new models and will get back to shooting again the beginning of next week.
