Everyday...

| PATIENCE| of collection of photographic artwork (18 pieces) inspired by events of Colorado River Days, 2015, and my recent injury will be complete this afternoon, and will be hung tomorrow morning at Criollo Latin Kitchen, and continuing for the month of September. 

I am  beyond thankful and grateful for the help that I received to make all of my creative visions possible while hobbling around and slightly broken: Rox Brox, Pete, Swartz, Melanie, Steven, Nellie, Largo, Targo, Renee Jacobs, Criollo and Color Services. You are all the reason why folks like me love to take portraits and create art, to keep you close. You are all very special to me. 

While creating for this installation, reflecting, my creative eyes and hands tend to drift...

So...

I made time between Indian ink and watercolor brush strokes to filter through some old film photographs. These two photographs stuck out. Though completely unrelated and taken at very different times during the year, these resonated with me. The seasonal light, expression, movement (or lack thereof) and its pure simplicity of being. 

These are simple portraits of what I see as every day.
