Over the last six months I've taken a "leave" from blogging--my apologies to my followers--but let me bring you up to date with my life and try to do better from now on.
I've been working hard at getting my photo business launched more seriously including becoming an active artist on FAA (Fine Art America) as well as on Pinterest and Twitter (please visit my pages and give feedback and spread the word). From the photos above you see that I've been involved in some art shows including the Arts to Zion Studio Tour and the St George Utah monthly Art on Main Gallery Stroll (both occurred in January 2014 just after a trip to Mexico over the holidays (more on the Mexico trip in my next post).
So what's happening in my "art life"? In late January 2014 put on a show of some of my local "southwest Utah" art (and some others) at the prestigious Split Rock Gallery in Ancestor Square in the historic downtown district of St George Utah. I now have a permanent collection there for all to see. Please visit it when you come to southern Utah and support the other galleries there as well as great restaurants and boutiques. In the last few days, I've been added to the Xanadu Gallery online artists (based in Scottsdale Arizona) and, finally, I now post photography on iStock photos by Getty Images. There you can see over 650+ photos I've uploaded into my portfolio for "royalty-free" use at affordable prices (more will be added soon). Of course if you want premium quality prints that are matted and framed to gallery standards please contact Split Rock Gallery in Ancestor Square.
Below are a few of the photos that have brought the most attention from viewers online and in the gallery. Tell me what you think about them as well and spread the word.

I plan to be more consistent now with the BLOG--trying to post something biweekly and more frequently when I travel--which I will be doing again in April when I travel to my 50th high school graduation celebration near Santa Rosa California. Oh how time flies!
