A First

My first invitational. The Pushing the Surface Show at the Johnson-Humrickhouse in Coshocton, Ohio. I have seen shows here and it is a very interesting setting. A gorgeous brick colonial with tons of interesting artifacts, it will be fun to see how things are displayed. A definite stop if you go to see Quilt National.
I don't think the color is very good on this photo but I finished it in February and between the weather and losing my camera to thieves I had a hard time shooting it.
It is my sophomore and senior photo enlarged and then cut into strips and pieced back together. Part of my self-deconstruction series. Next is a photo of my dad that is real classic shot from the 40's, could lead to interesting treatments.
Tonight was a new experience for me, I was working my part time church secretary job and I was invited to attend a practice mass for a seminarian. Antony is from India and a very nice man, tonight he sang the mass and gave a sermon and did a wonderful job. Imagine singing all that in a foreign language and giving a sermon also. We have a lot of people in this country who couldn't do it in English let alone another language. Great job Antony!
