John, seriously, have you ever considered taking these painting-like photos to the next step? Making them into humongous prints?? I think they would look marvelous. I will be your first client!

Thanks for your kind words. I have not printed in over a year - plan to do so soon.

Hi John, yes I do still come by to have a look and I am bowled over by this one, but that sounds like such a cliché. It is good, John. Very powerful and masculine. Very solid looking and all in balance and very peaceful and strong. I guess I can't find the right words for it, but I'm trying. I suppose I would like for you to make this kind of art more often, but then there are so many other pieces that I like also. Sometimes there is such beauty in soberness. I guess you can't order that to happen, it just comes about that way. I often think of your work and wish there was a book printed with your best work, about coffee table size. A really nice hefty one with good large prints and minimal text. Some explanation about your method of work. I suppose I'm daydreaming, aren't I? I just wish there was. I would like to organize an exposition of your work for you and I know just the museum to do it in. You need exposure. Not just to us silly women, although we are okay too. A large audience. What does your wife say and your friends?
