Catching Up

I've had so many personal emails asking if I'm okay I thought I should get back on board and blog. The truth is that I'm dating for the first time in ten years and it's quite distracting!

I went to Boston a couple weekends ago. It was my first time and I found the city fascinating. I didn't take my Nikon, which I should have, because the city is very historical, the weather was beautiful, and there were any number of photo ops. Instead, we ate out and had cocktails, and went to vendor parties at my friend's conference. And we bought scalper tickets for second row seats at the Alanis Morrissette concert. It was fab!

I finished a project with huge abstract paintings for a project in Detroit. I'm still in the design phase for a 3d installation for a hotel in Houston. I've designed it so many times without approval, I'm wishing they would just cut and paste it up themselves and I'll fabricate it any way they want! I have the purchase order, but not approval for the design.

I have a corporate job at the framer's right now, should be able to install next week and get that off my plate. It's been a long term project, and I've already been paid.

I've been in negotiations with McGraw-Hill for the purchase and licensing of a Texas landscape painting for the cover of an 8th grade literature textbook. We sealed the deal yesterday, and I've already been paid for the painting (yay Paypal!). It's a ten year licensing agreement.

Mid October I'm heading for New England for a photo shoot. It's a work trip, but I expect it to be a personal feast for my eyes. I've never been up there, much less during fall colors. Can't wait for that!

Good to see you back, Robin. I just noticed yesterday you hadn't posted for a spell. I've been off-line with the move and internet connection problems. I still don't have my internet connection problems figured out yet but so far I'm on for time at least. Hope it lasts.
I want to make it up to Boston next year myself as I've never been either.
