Cross-training

I'm part of a group show of artists that opens tonight. I have ten photos (mostly of North West River beach, all of Labrador ). It was fun to help organize (l did most of the publicity ) and definitely great to get so many images printed and up on the wall. What will it be like to be at the opening and hear folk talk about them? I'm used to pretty instant feedback from writing and directing plays, but writing novels and poems is a very private enterprise. Even when you're published you don't necessarily get immediate response except at readings.



Well,  I'll see how I am with it tonight.  Here's a photo that isn't in the show but similar!

Well, if your photos are anything to go by it will be hugely successful and a sell out! Will you let us know?

Congratulations on the exhibition! Hope the opening went well. How fun to cross into another discipline in a public way. Have been getting some feedback that I should consider mixing my poems in with my artwork. It kind of blows my mind! And it instantly cramped my poetry style. Oh man!! But I am so pleased that you are pushing the boundaries. Keep it up! (love the photo you posted, btw!)
