Freaking and Geeking out

This skink unexpectedly photo-bombed my picture of a snake.

The last two days have brought some unexpected and delightful surprises.  First, a local bookstore sold three sets of my cards.  Not only did I get a little bit of cash, but they asked for others, and I'm happy to oblige.  One of the store staff members is a former Sotheby's auctioneer who told me she'd like to do what she can to help promote my photography. She's even getting together with the store owner to determine if they can hang a few of my photographs in the shop. I'm pretty excited about her enthusiasm and any opportunities she might be able to create.

Second, I'm thrilled to say that I'm a curatorial research assistant!  I'll be gathering information to support the KMA's Associate Curator, especially for artwork she's gathering for new exhibitions that she's developing.  I'm going to be researching, researching, researching, much to my heart's content.  I'm elated and so thankful for this opportunity. (I know, can you believe it?)  

I'll keep you posted.
