In the Morning I am So Tall

I was thrilled to learn I got two pieces in a show at Somethings Looming Gallery in Reading. The show, Me Myself and I opens April 12. Naturally with a title like that, they were looking for self portraits. But I balked – the closest I came was one called “In the Morning I am So Tall.” That showed my shadow!!

The other that was accepted is a portrait of my “interior life” at least when I lived in Pittsburgh. It is called “Haven?” I worked many years in the steel industry, and can identify with the feeling that the factory takes over your life. The bits of downtown that show look as far away and unattainable as Oz.
