REMINDER: The Art of Photography
My parsley is unhappy with me. I’ve been planting a summer garden for the past week, and my husband and I are getting it done in shifts. All of the plants that aren’t in the ground yet have been fairly tolerant when given a little sun, a little shade and a lot of water–except the parsley. I love Italian flat leaf parsley. It isn’t just a garnish, folks. I can’t make chicken soup or marinara without it, but my two parsley plants are protesting having their feet off the ground. This next call has a deadline that is rapidly approaching, too. Take a look…
Check out this Call for Entries for the 8th Art of Photography Show which is being held at the San Diego Art Institute this year. The cost to enter is about average; however, last year, 1700 people attended the reception, and the award are spectacular. That’s a bargain…
