I had mentioned that I signed up to attend a photography workshop in California. Yesterday, I received notice that it was cancelled due to lack of interest (it had only been posted for a few weeks).

This was going to be it:

4-Day Workshop with
Elizabeth Carmel and Jerry Dodrill:
Autumn in Wine Country

Mountain Light Gallery is pleased to offer Autumn in Wine Country, a new and unique photography workshop with Elizabeth Carmel and Jerry Dodrill. This photography workshop is timed to coincide with the amazing Napa Valley autumn color season. …

I had already taken a workshop with Jerry in 2003, and I have met and bought a print from Elizabeth Carmel, who is one of the main photographers who inspired me to print big.

I was looking forward to the experience, but now have a new plan.

I’m planning a trip to visit one of Peter Lik’s galleries. I’ve recently discovered that I just don’t feel right unless my sights are set high in terms of quality and how my prints impact people. I’ve seen some great galleries, but I’ve never seen Peter’s work. So I must go.

By the way, his prints sell for $3000 and up. I’m trying to price mine for the average Joe and Susan.

Here is an example of my work: Jitters Lookin’ Good!

I’m trying to figure out other things to do in order to make the trip even more worthwhile.
