Quite the honor tossed my way!

I got the call the other day. The Monrovia Art Festival Assoc (soon to be officially renamed Monrovia Association of Fine Arts) has named me "Featured Artist" at this year's Celebrate the Arts to be held October 11 & 12 2008 here in Monrovia.

President Bill Beebe gave me the news, told me I earned it for all the work I put into the organization as well as the consistent quality of my images. His parting words..."Go forth and produce some great new things".

Well, I think the Orton series I just kick started today may be the trick. I'm totally digging the effects being recreated in the digital realm. Virtual Photographer helps recreate the soul of the old silver based media it was originally done in.

This image is my most favorite so far. I have a lot to go back and do. Duh...I have no idea why I never dug into it more. Enjoy, more to come. I have an "Orton" set running on Flickr so enjoy the set at it grows. Drop me a note on what you like or dislike and why. I like feedback. Honest.

Hey Frank...Congrats! That is pretty cool. I can assume that many of your photos will be on display, framed, lights, cameras and all the hooopla!!!? Good job!

Yes, Tom I'll have many framed pieces that are custom matted and ready to roll. I don't know about a lot of hoopla, lights and cameras but I'll be there plugging MAFA as well as showing my work. cracked me up, the only way the price is going to go up a lot is if I die which I don't think is happening anytime soon.
