Today, I received some great news. I was hand picked as a featured artist in this year’s Mission Federal ArtWalk here in San Diego. Last year, there were just 12 featured artists out of the hundreds of participants. Most of the artists at this event are painters, so I believe it’s quite an honor for a photographer to be a featured artist. This means that I will have more prominent placement on the website and printed material, as well as possible media attention.
For the past few months, this upcoming event has been on my mind. I have twice as much space as last year, so the pressure is on for me to come up with several more large prints. I have already selected 3 of the images that I will print BIG this year. Depending on what I come up with during my February trip to Death Valley and Northern Arizona (Yeah, I know… Northern Arizona again?), I might have even more work to show.
I have put a lot of effort into my photography over the past year, so it is awesome to receive this recognition.
