Today Steve and I are going to Charleston for the Piccolo Spoleto juried art show. In Box XL received an honorable mention! I'm thrilled, of course....but not as thrilled as I am about my Decision Portrait Series! This week I finished two more: Living with HIV and Pro Choice. I also took photos and got signed model releases for: Patroit and Muslim. All of these are powerful decisions.
After I finish each piece, I send a photo and the "rough draft" of the blog post to the "model". This allows each participant the opportunity to add or change comments. This is also the time I ask whether their name and/or link can be included.....so....check back! I'll be posting again soon!
