My Comrade

Rizo 3
Here are some photos I took of my comrade, Rizo. Most people think of him more of a cat than a dog. He has an endearing personality, but you have to win his affection.

I think that is why we are good pals.Rizo 4
I enjoy taking animal portraits, because the resulting photos give the viewer an intimate look at the animals, like they were curled up on the couch together.
Ideally I would like to print them around the 16"x24" range.

Portfolio Addition

Making some progress with the photographing of my work.   Of coarse I am looking at them questioning my photography skills.  These are all wall pieces, 2-D or with a little Bas Relief.
I also added a few sketches.

If you need a little guidance: click on the words "posTTaska Portfolio" on the sidebar to go to my Flickr page for more art images.  

Nina Bagley gave me two pieces of good advise: get published and don't rely on stamps.  As I move forward in my work I will take both to heart.
Self Portrait in Tile
 I have learned quite a bit from my work laying it all out and the floor and moving it around in groups.  Mom gave me some great feedback on working towards the publishing and grouping items for a show.
Self Portrait with My Familiars
 I should just go ahead and have an open studio...I wish I had some kind of space in the city where there were more people who might be interested.  Come on Taska, get motivated to start targeting galleries!!!!  Uhggg still need to solve some display issues and of coarse more photographing.   I think I can, I think I can.....
