Just after I started the challenge, I met a poet who had collaborated with a photographer on a book. It sounded like an interesting concept, so I approached him. Bruce Roseland, a very good poet from South Dakota, was very gracious and receptive of the idea. As I did a painting and put it on my blog, he wrote a short poem to go with. It was very interesting and surprising how much he could see in my paintings.
The book is finally here. We called it "Gift of Moments" because it was like a gift every time he opened the blog and when I read the poem. If anyone is interested, the book is $15.00 plus shipping. Anyone who purchased one of the paintings in the book will receive a book for free. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
