What's New

~ Foggy Morning and an Award
~ Arts Evening
~ Fine and Functional 4
~ 2 Interviews
~ Rhinobooks
~ Music Video
~ Monthly Photo Giveaway Winner
~ 2 New Paintings

Waking early one morning last month, I was happy to see thick fog rolling in. A subsequent walk with my camera produced quite a few effective shots, including the one shown here at right, which was picked as Photo of the Week at the Caught By Our Eyes online forum.
I also recently received my placement for Arts Evening. As with the past 2 years, I'm glad to report that I'll be at Postal Plus; 155 Robert St. in Slidell, LA. Hope to see you there--it's always a great time!
I was also accepted into the Fine and Functional 4 show at the Hammond Regional Arts Center. The opening reception is Nov. 12, from 6-8pm. The show runs through Dec. 18.
I recently had 2 more interviews published online. Last month's interview on Whopple turned into a jumping off point for another interview (in 2 parts,) on the "Erik's Choice" blog. Here are links to part I and part II. I also have another interview up, this time on the Support Local Arts Magazine site.
In generosity news, after submitting my information for a free bio listing via Rhinobooks, they were kind enough to contact me to tell me they loved my work so much they wanted to offer me free representation in their online gallery (where my works are numbers 71-75.)
I also donated Sunset at Fontainebleau III towards a music video being produced by Laura Tabor-Huerta for Gary Graves' song about Hurricane Katrina, "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea." Again, I'll provide the link to the video once it goes live.
Congratulations to the winner of this month's free 8x10" photo, Terri Lloyd!

New Paintings

Still dealing with legalities and emotions surrounding the theft of my proceeds at Potter Greenthumb's, I've been finding it difficult to motivate myself to paint. Regardless, I still wanted to produce at least something, so I produced a couple of abstracts; Primaries and Primaries II (shown here at left.) Both are acrylic and salt on gallery-wrapped canvas. Primaries is 48x36", Primaries II is 40x30".
I do have a couple of ideas for paintings that are more in my usual style and I hope to start working in that direction again soon.

Thanks for reading. If you enjoyed this newsletter, please feel free to share it with friends!
