Sorry for the delay-the first 6 months of 2013 have been busy. In March, I was hired by Terri Montgomery of Guerin Montgomery Interiors, Inc to shoot various rooms in a home that she decorated. Her work is beautiful and the inside of the house has character and felt like a home. The project was for her website and the interior shots turned out quite well. I am very pleased to be working with such a talented designer as Terri. As a side note, Terri was the person that appeared in the Chalet landscaping advertisement that appeared in the March issue of Chicago magazine.
At the end of March, Adriana and I went on vacation to Sedona. On the flight out there, we were leafing through a magazine and I discovered that one of the photographs from last year’s freelance assignment with Chalet landscaping appeared in the March issue of Chicago magazine. Many thanks to Susan, Julie and Mike for a great ad.
The photographs from Sedona are simply amazing. Unbelievable scenery and serenity. A few select images will appear on this website in the near future, but for an unfiltered view of the images, head over to http://msiragusa.fototime.com. There are many other photos from my travels on the fototime website as well, so take some time browsing and enjoy.
To continue—in May, I sold the prints and canvases that were on consignment at Bangkok Thai and Sushi restaurant (Algonquin, IL). Simon (and the staff at Bangkok), many thanks for your support. For those of you who live in the Algonquin area—go there, the food is quite good and you will not be disappointed.
Also in May, I had a solo art exhibit at Boulder Ridge Country Club (Lake in the Hills, IL). Turn out and response was terrific and I am working on the possibility of another show there later this year. Jim, I thank you and the staff for hosting this great event.
In June, some of my images were selected as part of a permanent exhibit at Sysmex America, Inc (Lincolnshire, IL). The company was investing in artwork for their new building and contractors and jurors from Chicago Art Source selected the artwork for the building.
Finally, I was again accepted for the upcoming annual juried art show at Art in the Barn (Barrington, IL) which will be held the last week in September 2013. I had a lot of fun and positive responses last year and I’m looking forward to this year’s event.
