So it's been a long while since I've posted anything on either blog. The Aion Arts one was turning into more of a "have to" than a "want to" with hurry-up-and-get-it-done deadlines and that's no fun. And I kept thinking I wanted to keep "art" stuff separate from "work" stuff but that led me to realize that the two are one thing for me, and if things are feeling out of balance, I need to fix that by bringing the two together, not pushing them apart. For a while now I've felt like the business was taking over and this year has been all about turning that around. Now I finally feel well-rounded, and I think it's freeing me to photograph for clients - as well as for me - with a new depth of vision and a truer sense of who I am as a photographer. Thank goodness. Lots of good lessons this year.
What's been going on this summer? Well, after Seattle, many fortunate circumstances led me to Union County Airport in Marysville, where I'm learning to fly in this lovely little yellow piece of candy called an Aeronca Champ. Many photos from this experience will make their way here I am sure! And, now that I've made up my mind to just be me, instead of trying to keep up with the photo-Joneses, I am looking forward to posting here again. Thank you for your patience!
