I suppose it must be a little surprising, and to me it's more than a little amusing, that after 36 years as a wine-maker, wine should count as a relatively recent creative interest of mine; but compared to photography, it is.
Which is to say that since the age of 15 I've pursued photography as a purely personal expressive art: photography, in other words, pursued not as the generation of attractive souvenirs, which I also enjoy and regularly post on FB, but photographs from a different region of the psyche & intended without apology as works of art on paper, produced by photography.
So, after 59 years, it seemed time to exhibit some of them; and that process will begin with an exhibition at the Commonweal Gallery, Bolinas, opening on July 9; anyone up for the drive is of course welcome to attend. Their website is as follows, http://www.commonweal.org/, & while they currently do not list the exhibition, it must be said that efficiency is not their strong point; however, compassion is, so at least they do have their priorities straight; and the exhibit is indeed happening.
If you do actually plan to attend the opening, could you let me know that by a comment after this post, so we'd have some thought what and whom to expect? Many thanks; & for those who'd like as much of a preview as pixels can provide, which really isn't all that much, the URL for my newly live photography website is given above the top of this post. Any comments, most primitively on the simple technical functioning of the site - for example, I only know one person who still uses Microsoft/PC, so I'm clueless about how it shows there - would be gratefully received as well.
