19 November 2016 was a pretty good day.  I picked up the digitized Autumn Fever and I found out I am getting the ACCD FP Grant to digitize my journals, though I will be starting with the early 1990s.

November 1, 2016:  I began shooting The Davids this summer, the companion project to The Odalisques, and featuring male nudes foreshortened and in focus head to foot.  I also applied for the COLA grant and the ACCD fpg grant.

I started shooting The Rite of Spring on Super8 on June 17, 2016, and continued the Tetralogy of the Seasons in the summer.  In two weeks, I shall be shooting Autumn Leaves on the weekend before the Frost Moon.

LEAP DAY 2016.  I completed Years of Living Horologically today at 229 Museum Drive.  The series is comprised of 366 diptychs.

January 17, 2016:  Now that the Odalisques have been returned to Los Angeles, I am preparing my studio so that I can begin conducting studio visits.  Odalisque #6:  Julia on Lady of the Lake is the first piece hung in the new space.

I began remodeling the garage/studio at the end of 2015 and I hung Odalisque #6 yesterday.

Obelisks & Odalisques closed at McKelvey Gallery in the Knox Building in downtown Youngstown, Ohio from June through September 2015.  The McKelvey Gallery is a mixed use space on the site of a Woolworth's Store.  The Obelisks are still on display on the ground floor board room and the Odalisques are [no longer] on display on the newly renovated third floor gallery.
