I would like to share some recent good news with my RedBubble friends!
First: A large selection of my photo greeting cards is now available at the newly remodeled gift shop at South Coast Botanic Garden (Rancho Palos Verdes, California). The goal of the shop is to feature local artists, and my many photographs taken in the garden fit that goal perfectly. On September 30 and October 1, 2011, the gift shop held a grand reopening with several of the featured local artists present to chat with customers. I spent some time there both days and enjoyed meeting visitors and also a few of my fellow artists.
Second: I received an Honorable Mention in the worldwide All Photography juried art competition, and my image (“Leaf geometry,” see below) appears in the All Photography Art Exhibition – October 2011 at the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery. Mine is one of the 10 awarded photos chosen from 575 entries.
Earlier in 2011, I had an image (“tranquillity,” see below) that received “Special Recognition” (the level just below Honorable Mention) in the worldwide Botanicals juried art competition. My image appears in the archived All Photography Art Exhibition – April 2011 at the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery.
