Here are some pictures of my exhibit, waking with you... enjoy and please let me know what you think.

some photographs that fit the exhibit perfectly, originally from my thesis exhibit.

I will post more pictures and some detail shots of my large scale bed work, waking with you, tomorrow. Thank you so much for all the encouraging words in my race to the finish line of getting it done. It was struggle but I am very happy with how well the entire show turned out. Let me know what you think.

In conjunction with the exhibit SandT of Making the Art Seen featured a very thoughtful and thorough interview with me over at her blog. Please check it out.
