Balancing act

I’m pleased to announce that I have a collection of photographs that will be exhibited at the Hudson Hospital in Hudson, Wisconsin beginning this Wednesday, August 3rd.  The hospital has a wonderful healing arts program which includes over 200 works of art throughout the entire campus, including patient rooms.  My images for this exhibit are titled “Close to Home.”  I have been interested in the belief held by so many people that we must travel to faraway places to find the beautiful things in our world.  Yet in the small area of my city lot with its small brick house and gardens is a world of great beauty and wonder, like this monarch butterfly that balanced on a purple coneflower one hot day in July. The exhibit runs from August 3rd through December 11th.  There is an artist reception this Friday, August 5th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  I invite any one near the Twin Cities area to come to the reception or to stop by the Hudson Hospital to see their fine exhibit.  For more information about the hospital or for directions, please go to

    Congrats on your collection of photos being exhibited! That’s great! I like this particular photo because the flower looks so strange. the fact that it’s losing its petals just add to the intrigue. Great photo!

    If you find a moment, please visit my photoblog at the link provided below. I am fairly new to photography and any advice would go a long way. Thanks!

    Congrats on the show. Yes, we do travel for photos and find many in our backyard. The images from the 5400 miles and 12 states are still in the camera to be viewed sooooon., We have a magnificient water lily in our front pond!

    I always enjoy seeing your photos, but this is one of my new favorites! I love the title too–balancing act; aren’t we all doing that every day in our very busy lives? I can relate to the butterfly.
    I wish I could attend your reception; the only thing keeping me from being there to celebrate with you is a mere 250 miles. Enjoy the evening!
