So Much to Do So Little Time

I currently have art in two spaces, Expressions Gallery in Berkeley and The Frank Bette Center in Alameda and I am in the process of launching the first Major satellite show for the Frank Bette Center at Perforce Software in Alameda called "ShowCase Alameda". It includes works from 13 FBCA artists who work in photo-based mediums, all source material from the 2007 "Alameda On Camera" event. The artists have been encouraged to expand the work that they submitted for last year's show. I had so many of my own images to work from but I am pretty much sticking to the baseball league theme that I started with last year...another encaustic painting and the addition to straight photography which is pretty scary since I don't consider myself a photographer!
This year's Alameda On Camera challenge greeted the particpants with more rain, just like last year. I really went out on a limb and decided to work exclusively with photography...okay, so I messed around with photoshop a bit and I am making giclee prints on watercolor paper, but it is still photography rather than painting. I am excited to see how this all works out.
