As parts of my current projects unfold and manifest themselves in new ways I am scurrying to keep up with contemporary events in relation to what I am trying to accomplish. I have been accepted to present my project through a resourceful and respected website and am refining what exactly it is I am working on, and don't wish to let to much go before things are set up. I will be presenting my newest project through Kickstarter and hope that all of you will participate with me in making it happen. I am trying to get back over to Japan for a new series of direct observation landscape paintings and prints, specifically dealing with Otsu, where my wife and in-laws are from. Once I have spent my initial time in Otsu,(and funds lasting) I plan to travel eastward toward Tokyo stopping in at various towns along the way and sharing with all of you via a daily blog. But I am getting ahead of myself. I'm on my way to get a haircut tomorrow and to shoot a video for you all! I also have to finish writing my presentation and study some more Japanese so I'll keep you guys up to date on the progress for the project. In the upcoming week(s) I hope you keep me in mind and help me share my project with others. More on all this later!
