I ran across this photo while working through some of my archives. Unfortunately, the metadata was missing so I don't remember what camera was used. Still, I felt it would be a fun image to share.
I've been busy with multiple projects, visitors, and just the normal hectic demands this time of year always brings. I have been terribly lax, lately, in keeping this blog up to date and hope to do better in days to come. As strange as it seems, doing a daily blog is much easier for me than doing occasional posts. Deciding what kind of post to do is another thing that feeds my natural tendencies to procrastination and lack of focus.
My book, KACHINAS, volume one, or at least the final hard proof, is somewhere on its way here, and due sometime between now and the end of next week. If all is well, it should be available for purchase by the end of the month!
I redesigned the cover, using a painting, rather than a photograph for the background, and changed the background on inside pages to a painting, as well. I also changed the typeface and tweaked the composition. I was pretty happy with the first version. It's really exciting to hold your first book in your hands.
But, as time went on, I realized there were things that just didn't work the way I had hoped. So it was time to fix all those issues in an attempt to make a book to be proud of.
That said, I've started working on another Kachina book. Not volume two of KACHINAS, but a totally different sort of book, altogether. More on that coming soon.
How often would you like to see new posts, and what would you most like to see? More words, fewer words. Paintings, drawings, sketches, photos, stories, or a mix?
