So, I guess that I’ve been slacking way hard with this blog lately. I got really caught up on a really big web project that took months out of my life. I don’t think that I ever really recovered.

A couple of images from this series will be in the upcoming Art About Agriculture show at the Santa Paula Art Museum. I very excited to have some of the images in that show. The exhibition opens in November, and I will post a more detailed announcement at a later date.
