As Seen on DALLAS

Yes, you did see two of my photographs in Sue Ellen Ewing's office on DALLAS last night!
Last fall, the real and lovely Linda Gray met me at the Barry Whistler Gallery to look at some photographs for Sue Ellen's office (what fun!). I suggested my photograph Wildcat, as Sue Ellen is the original Wildcatter. The set designers went for it. They also chose my agave portrait and two beautiful 
hand colored photographs by Ann Stautberg . Ann's photos hang over Sue Ellen's right shoulder.

This was fun. Last year Garden&Gun asked me to teach a photo workshop to their subscribers  in Dallas. We toured three of the 10 sculptures commissioned for the Nasher XChange and discussed potential photo ops, angles etc. Thanks Carter Rose for these great shots!
