I have been creating these Reality-Based Abstractions since 2007.  Ms. Kuhr also selected this image from my series for the exhibition:

In other news, I donated a print of After Charles Sheeler to the In-Sight Photography Project (Brattleboro, VT), for the non-profit's annual benefit auction. The organization provides photography classes to youth on a sliding scale. I invite you to bid on my image and support a good cause. Bidding ends on November 26, 2017.
