Excellent News!  One of my photographs has been chosen as a finalist for ArtBridge : Kingston 2014.  

This panorama, (a full 360 degrees taken from the Crow's Nest at Olana), of the Catskill Mountains, Mount Merino, and the Hudson River Valley, is one of 10 final artworks chosen for possibly being printed on a banner 8 feet x almost 70 feet, to be exhibited on the Greenkill Avenue and Broadway Bridges in Midtown Kingston. The final two artworks will be chosen this weekend, wish me luck!
