I now have a GALLERY online of the images from which I am selecting for my show next month.

The two fall colors shots are in there because I haven't generated enough images of these yet to warrant their own portfolio.

All you Yanks that can feel free to order from here (don't know how the portal works for overseas orders, never had one before). Proceeds will help fund several LARGE prints for the exhibition.

:D

Wow! That's so good, I'll say it backwards! !woW

You must have a hell of a job RW, fancy taking all those photos and calling it work! Some cheek! waveysmileywaveysmiley


Swish Checkley - 2-10-2009 at 07:41

Nice shots :)


Redwolf5150 - 8-10-2009 at 17:52

An updated gallery of 88 of the 90 shots that will be in the AV component of the show can be viewed here

Looking for a sponsor(s) or people willing to "adopt" the higher priced big works I need to do it "properly."

:D


Redwolf5150 - 9-10-2009 at 22:19

Found a generous donor who was willing to contribute $500 toward the prints of the show. This will cover all five of the 20x30 inch foam mounted prints for the ceiling area and a few of the 16x20 enlargements.

Have a few more potential donors to approach early next week. But once I have the funds in hand, I will be able to send the order out for the big prints. That is a load off my mind.


Redwolf5150 - 11-10-2009 at 00:33

Here is the artwork for the posters and flyers the library will print -- on their pre-printed flyers which has their own logo/artwork.

As soon as they are printed, I'll post one. They are very nice looking.

:D


Nimuae - 11-10-2009 at 08:33

That looks really good !


Redwolf5150 - 27-10-2009 at 01:28

I am going nucking futs and so is Jackie.

Six days to hang day and we're STILL waiting on the check from our major sponsor. We have to start buying mats and frames and getting the five monster prints ordered!

Will post a copy of the final poster -- which I dropped off the pdf that they have to merge with their pre-printed posters -- when they give me my extra copies.

Must

BREATH!


LSemmens - 28-10-2009 at 12:11

I hope it all goes better than you could even hope for Jamie. Good luck with the show!


Redwolf5150 - 29-10-2009 at 04:10

We are now in a full-scale scramble to save some portion of the show!

Our main sponsor apparently has pulled out!

I say "apparently" because they are not taking my calls, returning my voice mail messages or seeing me when I go to their office.

I may be dense, but I am not THAT dense! Just wish they would have had the decency to inform me of their change of heart BEFORE I had crossed the point of no return!

We are scaling back the number of images radically. Jackie has an idea on some home made cut-out style frames, but we need to get a bunch of wood ASAP and we're running out of funds.

I'll mount a show, but it isn't going to be the 84 print masterpiece I had envisioned.


Redwolf5150 - 30-10-2009 at 01:24

T-Minus TWO full days until hang day.

Scaled back show images from 20x30 down to 11x14 are PRINTED

Thanks to two carpenters I will have the 5 20x30s, 3 16x20s and 15 11x14's in standout style frames. Combined with the traditional frames for 1 16x20, several 11x14s and about seven 8x10s, along with the two gallery wraps, I will have a representative sample of the show I WANTED to hang. All images are on the slide show, however.

Still not home free as we will be finishing the standout frames on Saturday.

Why is nothing in my life as easy as I think it will be?

BTW, this image ended up as one of the five 20x30 prints and will be hung from the ceiling over the reference desk. A VERY prominent spot.

Welcome to my world! ;)

As our Pastor's wife has been known to say "Sh*t happens". I've seen the inside of more hospitals in the last two weeks than many people see in a lifetime! At the end of the day, it's how you handle adversity that will allow you to succeed, or fail. From what I see here, RW, you will have better success than you imagine, despite the inconsiderate behaviour of this "sponsor". At the end of it,you can, rightfully, say that it was a success owing to your perseverance and hard work. Another sponsor will see your efforts and reward you with greater success than this dishonourable company could have brought. My favourite saying is "I've read the back page, WE WIN!!"


Redwolf5150 - 31-10-2009 at 00:26

Had a last minute "Angel" swoop in and give us enough money to get the scaled back show to the finish line.

That and the efforts of two area carpenters doing our standout frames in sizes 11x14 up to 20x30.

Now to get everything assembled in time. We are officially three days behind schedule. No sleep til Brooklyn!


scholar - 31-10-2009 at 22:08

Here's wishing you the best, Redwolf. I hope you have great success, commercially and artistically.doffs_cap

Thanks for the invite but unless your angel is plumping for my fare I'll have to pass. Good luck Jamie. :)


LSemmens - 1-11-2009 at 10:31

Great news! Give you angel a front page write up! Go for it, mate, just remember us "little people" when you are rich and famous!

His son is the placekicker on the football team and I plan on giving him a really nice size copy of the best shot of him in action next week when our finances are better with my paycheck. (Not that it's a whole lot of money in my check, but you get the picture, pardon the pun)


Redwolf5150 - 1-11-2009 at 15:13

I would like to add that I could NOT have done this without Jackie's talent and assistance.

Love ya, honey!


marymary100 - 1-11-2009 at 17:08

Oooops - that should have been included in the OP! :D


LSemmens - 2-11-2009 at 00:03

Doggie bickies for you, then Jamie? confused2

We were in this morning hanging four pieces that needed new glass that didn't make the push yesterday. An older lady was closely looking at each image.

"You must love nature as much as we do," she said. "These are quite lovely."

I'll take critics like that ANY day.

I'll get some shots of the exhibit up in a little while once I leave the office.

:D


Redwolf5150 - 4-11-2009 at 00:42

Here's a few photos of the exhibit. We have about 10-15 more images to add to the show.

Looks good Jamie, it's a pity I live so far away, I'd come for a look! Maybe Scholar will venture in and give you his perspective. setteehidey

I highly doubt he'd venture into the Northwoods of Wisconsin from his cozy little burg in Central Illinois.

marymary100 - 4-11-2009 at 22:42

Good luck with the show Jamie and Jackie.
