Latest work: "Looking Backward"

Wow, this is dark, isn't it? But then my days recently have been dark. I am back home, however, and things should begin lightening up. The amount of work to be done regarding my father's estate is daunting, but I can now set up my files so they make more sense, and get on with things.

I am also discontinuing my online store, getting rid of a variety of websites, and figuring out how to sell my calphoto.com domain name so that someone else may carry it on. Time to lighten the load, simplify, and make room for new projects, new ideas, new artwork, a new life.

So many images went into the making of this photomontage that it's hard to remember what I did, but I began with some inked rice paper, an old Japanese banknote my dad had, hand-painted circles and lines, various bits of calligraphy, postage stamps from my collection, and a Japanese woodblock print.

And David O., how youze doin'?
