The image above shows my A-Z trucks from last year. I had it printed on metal for my 2017 art exhibition at TAG Gallery in Los Angeles.
It’s February and my thoughts are turning towards the 2018 A to Z Challenge.
I’ll be posting images from my #dailytruck series again. I have most of the letters already, there are a few that I’m still hunting (would you believe that I still need to find J and T?).
The A-Z Challenge is a lot of fun. It happens in April, and the challenge is to blog through the alphabet every Monday through Saturday. This will be my fourth year participating!

Selections from the #mybeautifulcommute series, digital watercolors (Waterlogues) made from iPhone captures. Most easily seen on my Tumblr here.
The location is a segment of my westbound commute home, where CA60 passes under I-5 northbound, the 101, I-5 southbound, I-10 eastbound, then unites with I-10.
At 7pm, it usually isn’t too terrible until the merge with the westbound I-10, just east of downtown LA. The forms of the overpasses zoom by in the blink of an eye, and every day it’s different.
Some of these images will be on exhibit at TAG Gallery, July 11 – August 5.
If you’re in LA, the Opening Reception is July 15, 5-8pm.
Here is the first waterlogue I made of the back end of a truck for the #myshittycommute series. Created on 6/16/15, I hadn’t yet completely formed my compositional parameters (wipers visible).
This was recently released from “photo jail”.
I have more than 15K photos/images on my phone.
I “lost” computer access to them due to an OS upgrade in September January (no room on the laptop for the new Photos application). I had some clunky workarounds, including emailing to self. I finally decided that I’d had it and got myself a new Mac Mini, which arrived on Thursday. I can now see ALL my truck waterlogues as thumbnails in one place — what a relief! I have to figure out what to get printed for my show in July!
Wait… July 9 (hanging day) is only 35 days away. Uh oh.
Procrastination is the bane of my existence.
