It’s two weeks to go to have everything printed and framed for the small exhibit that I will have hanging for the next couple of months at the great place where I work (Red Hat). So, I will be spending most of the morning perfecting the last couple of images and printing them and then will frame those that I have printed already.
When I print any image, I put it into the drying book for at least 24 hours to ensure that any moisture from the ink is pulled out of the print and not trapped behind glass and possibly cause warping or other issues longer term.
As most of you are aware, the exhibit will feature the Yoga Tree, in all her beauty and phases across the years. There is a specially requested image that will go on one of the walls…
This image is from three years ago, and is the first that I captured of Nubble Light on Cape Neddick, Maine. It’s a light house that has been photographed so much that I have always been hesitant to shoot it, as I wanted to create something unique. What I noticed in the clouds and seas that day, helped formulate a vision of what I wanted. The final edit came about six weeks later, as I needed to be in a bit of a darker mood to get the results that we see here.
I will make sure that there will be time for some music. I’m working on some technique exercises to strengthen my playing ability and really get the basics under control. One of the songs that I’m also working on is this tune titled ‘Killing the Blues’, a Rowland Salley composition. Here’s a version that I found that is quite likable!
Have a wonderful day!
