1)  A Retrospective
.
2015 has begun just the way I wanted.  A month long show at Om Gallery, Santa Cruz, in January, and my RAWARTISTS show in San Jose just this past Wednesday are part of my 2015 commitment to do a better job of not just hoping people will visit my gallery up here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but to get myself back out into the community in lots of different venues, so that I get a chance to showcase my photography where people are, and to invite them to visit my larger collection of work here in Ben Lomond.   The Om Gallery show was as successful as I could have hoped for, in terms of both attendance and sales.  And the RAWARTISTS show was over the top a delightful and people packed night!

Here is a link to my Facebook album of pictures from the RAWARTISTS event:  https://www.facebook.com/frankjayleonard/media_set?set=a.10152744502018753.1073741856.641068752&type=1&pnref=story

2)  March 6th at Felton Feed and Pet Supply, 6-9pm, 6221 State Rte 9, Felton, CA 95018
.
On Friday night, March 6th, from 6-9pm,  I have a one night show at Felton Feed and Pet Supply, as part of First Friday Felton.  This show will feature the “Nude as Nature” show I just completed for RAWARTISTS.  So, for those of you who were not able to make it over the hill, here’s one more chance to see my latest work, with no need to purchase a ticket  :o)

3)  A possible RAWARTISTS show in San Francisco on April 15th
.
One of the benefits I received in being chosen to be a RAWARTIST is that I get to pick any venue in the United States or Australia to have my next show, without the need to sell tickets.   I believe my choice will be San Francisco, a place I lived for 30 years, where I would love to bring my photography back to many good friends, and where I can transport my show by car.  So stay tuned, the next San Francisco show is April 15, 2015.  More info to follow.
.
4)  Finally, I have a new photoset to share with you, “Lea – Glamour Nudes.”
.
Joyce received several pieces of very beautiful Vietnamese silk cloth, which she is going to have made into clothing, but before she does, she agreed to let me use the silk for photo shoots.  Shooting what turned out to be very much a glamour nude photo shoot was something new for me.  The use of lighting and the new editing skills needed were a real challenge.  I hope you enjoy these first efforts with a new medium.
.
 .
That’s it for this month, good people.  I hope to see you in Felton on Friday evening, March 6th, 6-9pm, for my “Nude as Nature” show.  Felton Feed and Pet Supply, 6221 State Rte 9, Felton, CA 95018
 .
Until next month,
.
Frank.
