"Face to Face #7"
- ks -
| 4-Feb-07 |
Just the local chapter of the NWTF, the National Wild Turkey Federation's annual banquet and auction tonight.
We've been members since the first time we were visited by a couple of dozen of these incredible birds walking thru our property.
(To see "First Contact" images, go back a few pages in this "Log" to my postings on 11/22/06)
The annual event brings a few hundred folks together that share a common bond.
We all love wild turkey, the bird and the beverage, however I am perhaps the only member that shoots the bird using a camera!

It's now been seven continuous weeks of snow covered ground and oddly a new storm has hit on either a Thursday, Friday or Saturday during each of those weeks...
Another foot of ground cover over the past two days with a low temperature of 14 below at the house last night.
Pam and I love it and figure this is exactly what should be happening this time of the year in the Rocky Mountain west...

I've spent the better part of the day trying to catch up on sleep that I've missed, moving around tons of the new snow we received last night and preparing images for entry into a new show "Abstractions".
Theme of Abstractions: Emphasizing a derived image, where the essential character is only a stylized or symbolic visual reference to the original. Art that depicts real forms in a simplified or reduced way keeping only an allusion of the original natural subject...
Steps eventually lead to the door that opens up or closes off "Kevins playhouse".

I am thrilled to announce I received a call today from the RRCC Gallery. "Pioneer", one of my four accepted entries, took a 1st place in their show "Art on the Edge"...
Opening Reception, Friday, February ninth...
In the few galleries that have displayed "Pioneer" to date,
people have had mixed reactions to this image.
One of my favorites was written by Stoneheart Gallery owner http://www.stoneheartgallery.com and friend, Mark Anthony King...
Pioneer by Kevin Scofield
This image of a Native American doll through a storefront window taken in the Pioneer Square District of Seattle is a strong message about the position of ancient cultures in today’s “market place”. The figure’s vague & distorted features craft a feeling of loss & confusion. The reflection of the windows in the building across the street, the figure’s contemporary view, mirrors modern society’s perception of reaching for the heavens. He seems to be at odds with modern man yet, completely unaware that he too is “for sale”. This message serves as a reminder that we could all benefit from directing our focus inward instead of being judgmental of those around us.
As you read through Kevin's bio, you'll note that he is "truly intrigued when it comes to capturing images from multi-dimensional levels..." Pioneer with it's marriage of reflections off the glass & of the past, windows in time, history & future, is a prime example of this artist's ability to convey his message in a subtle, yet intense manner.
Pioneer is available as a beautifully matted & framed 38 x 31 limited edition Kodak Lambda print on metallic paper
or as a museum mounted archival inkjet print in a 16 x 20 frame.

"Sugar Glider" (Petaurus Breviceps)
I had first seen these cool little guys several years ago at an outdoors show. Today I was able to spend some time with a few Sugar Gliders and Steve Larkin the man who truly loves them. Steve is from Terrell Texas, the gliders are from the rainforests of Indonesia and Australia. They adapt very readily to captivity and make excellent pets. Steve says they develop very strong relationships with their human keepers.
These little marsupials are nocturnal and live 12-15 years.

Sugar Gliders possess a gliding membrane similar to that of the flying squirrel that stretches from their wrists to their ankles. It allows them to glide from tree to tree, in this photo, hand to hands...In the wild they live in colonies of between 6-15 gliders and their colony controls about seven trees for their territory. Their lives are spent in this territory foraging for bugs, baby birds, bird eggs, small lizards, fruits, vegetables and vegetation.
This is Steve Larkin the Sugar Glider guy. I have just been to your website and it's great.
I have added it to my favorites because I want to go to it often and discover all of yor images.
Thanks for including us in it!
If you get a chance please email me any good pictures you got of the gliders.
I am working on a new book on them and am collecting as many pictures as possible to choose from for use in the book.
It was great to meet you!
