The next phase of the project is going to require a lot more writing, real writing - not blogging, not emails. It's not my strongest point and it definitely requires much more effort for me to focus doing. Good news is....I've completed on the first draft of an exhibit proposal! I've started on my artist statement! I've made 6 packages of layouts ready to be sent to various places on my list!

Well! A little update since my last post. Actually, quite a number of updates!

The drive up to Fredonia, NY on Oct 30th to meet with Aimee was crazy. It took about 8.5 hrs from NYC. Portions of the drive were met with sleet, rain, snow on a highway lit just by the headlights on my car. Seriously, I thought the road was never to end! It was all worth it though. The meeting with Aimee was wonderful and she gave me some wonderful thoughts on finding exhibit space and funding (which I haven't followed up on but I really need to).

The week after the trip I met up with Nick to photograph him and his kids for his portrait. We met up at the Play Space at Woodbridge mall. I was a little concerned about getting a good shot when I was on the way there but it worked out beautifully. His kids are beautiful and they loved the camera, which made it so much easier. As I was chatting with Nick, I found out more amazing things about him that I wish I had on tape for the interview. His talents and drive is just really amazing!

Tonight I completed the first draft of the exhibit proposal. Although I've sent a couple out before, this proposal is more formally structured. I'll let it sink in and read it a couple more times over before I send the next wave of exhibit proposal packages out.
