I reconnected with a dear friend through the ubiquitous social media. He asked about my latest show and said he checked my blog/website often. Of course that suggests a fairly boring experience because I have been less than active in posting new pieces, ideas, things that interest me and the like.

His comments hit home. One of the things I am working on in my life in general is the need to throw perfectionism out the window. For whatever reason (ask my therapist) I have allowed perfectionism to fence me in, to stifle what I do and inhibit free expression within my work, relationships and art. I've actually made progress in this area but I'm not so sure it is seen in my art.  Perhaps it is in my recent photography. (Digital photography is so liberating in its costlessness.)

In other words I don't have too much to show right now, partially because I haven't taken any photos of what I've completed or been working on lately.  Here goes.
