An abbreviated post today. Between the holiday and deadlines it’s been difficult to get some new shooting into the schedule. Daily rain has hampered the search for the next great fossil find. So I’ll start with a goodbye to the cicadas – at least I think they’re almost gone.
Fortunately, they barely made an appearance of any sort here at my studio. My friends a mile down the road, on the other hand, have been living through some kind of SciFi Hell! Can’t stand outside talking kind of noise. A quick run down there with fossil and drawer and a cast of millions standing by got me this image.
One final reminder about our opening on Friday (July 5):
Opening Reception – Friday, July 5, 2013
6 – 9 PM
169 Ulster Avenue, Saugerties, NY
Through July 26
Speaking of SciFi Hell, Cindy and I drove down to the Meadowlands in New Jersey last Saturday. My son Shaun was in town to perform at the New Jersey State Fair. It’s always a treat to see him perform, regardless of venue.
While he was busy I had time to check out the Fair itself. I’ve been to many state and county fairs across the country and never before had I seen one without animals! I heard that they were having pig races somewhere but nowhere did I find the 4H world in attendance.
Here was the entire reason for the trip – Shaun Balin on fiddle with American Idol star Lauren Alaina. Fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and backup vocals – hardest working musician I know! It’s always a pleasure to hear you play, Shaun!
