So I once again decided to submit to a group exhibit that will take place in Johnson City, Texas at the A Smith Gallery. As some of you may know I have been for last 2 months focused on self portraiture using a pinhole camera. It so happened that as I was doing a search on pinhole photography, I came across this Google link: http://asmithgallery.com/upcoming-exhibitions. So of course I had to check it out.

This is a video that I had posted a while back on Facebook. Looking forward to really diving into large format photography.My plan is to focus on landscapes and of course self-portraiture. I really enjoyed the music, detail and presentation of this video. I hope you enjoy it too.

The many twists and turns and ups downs I have experienced in this journey of creative expression has made me stronger and wanting more. Those disappointments have gotten me bold, careless, isolated, balanced and creatively in tune. I’m loving every minute of it.

The end of Integration. The birth of disengagement. As of March 1st, 2017, I have started a new era. No more begging or pleading, wishing, waiting or hoping to create work. One on One Art has taken a complete turn solely into the world of self portraiture. New work in progress, with nothing to stand in my way. Pinhole Self-Portraits Series in progress.
