Title: Joan of Arc
My tendency when I shoot on breath holds, is to exhale to sink. Each round would start with all parties on the surface. We'd breathe together and drop on count... me exhaling and making bubbles, Mike playing double duty as safety and stylist, and Virginia settling into her poses. This shoot, we were getting about 45 seconds or so before we had to surface to breathe. Not bad.

This coming Saturday (Feb. 8th), I'm installing 4 HUGE framed prints from The Mermaid Project at my friends Salon - Envy Beauty Studios (http://www.envybeautystudio.com/) They are going to live there for a while, and I couldn't be happier about that.
I love Stephanie's salon. She's crazy talented and if you're looking for quality salon services in the Long Beach area, really... you gotta meet this woman.
Moreover, this coming Saturday (Feb. 8th) we will be having a gathering around 5pm at the salon. (314 Elm Ave, Long Beach, Ca. 90802). I'm actively recruiting models, stylists, and costumers to work with over the year, and if you want to come down to meet, I'd love to get to know you!

So 2014 is here... unbelievable. I'm amazed at everything that was accomplished in 2013... new friends, the launching of The Mermaid Project, home renovations, weddings, travel, and a new found sense of where I want to take my art this year. Last year was a whirlwind... I only feel like I am coming up for air now... Apologies to everyone that I have been 'hiding' from during this time. Rest assured, I missed all of you.
