Two of my new portraits from the series Lost in the Midwest were selected for a competition at the Dubuque Museum of Art. The DMA BIENNIAL JURIED EXHIBITION will run April 6th through July 21st, 2013.

124 artists submitted work. 48 artists' works were selected. The juror selected 48 works out of 348. I submitted three photographs and two were chosen, one was not.

Here are the two that made it IN.

 Katy, Queen of Her Garden, Iowa City, Iowa

Don, Owner of the Modern Barber Shop, Burlington, Iowa

LENSCRATCH - Aline Smithson's Blog with a Twist

On Valentine's Day, Aline Smithson posted artists' self-portraits on her blog, LENSCRATCH. There are a LOT to view. It is really interesting just how many different ways a person can make a self-portrait. My students should take note! Me, too! It is inspiring. Makes me want to create more self-portraits. I usually make one or two whenever I have my camera out - just to document the time and myself as whoever I am at that moment. Otherwise it is rare for me to be in any photographs.

Thank you to Aline for such a wonderful collection/exhibition. Happy Be-Lated Valentine's to Everyone!   Love, Sandy
