This post is about a week late.
Thursday of last week, and after 2,394 miles, I made it back home. After spending two weeks living on and in the Manassas National Battlefield Park, I took a couple days driving back to Maine. I then spent a few days in the Western Maine mountains to shoot and research waterfalls and capped off the trip with a couple days at the historic Fort Knox near Bucksport, Maine.
It was an exhilarating but exhausting month, full of wonderful life experiences and tons of photographs. Without a doubt it was truly and honor and privilege to be a MNBP Artist-In-Residence.
After a week of catching up with the many tasks needing attention upon my return, and some much needed rest, I started the creative process of sorting and filtering all the images I captured along the way. Now the work on final pieces of art begins.
Once final selections are in place we'll be working on finished products ranging from fine art wall prints, a collection of salt prints and maybe even a book (or two).
We also need to select one image that will be framed and donated to the National Park Service. I completely forgot to ask what they do with the donations, but maybe they'll hang it in the visitor center and you'll be able to see it when you visit the park!
