This 40x60-inch image, printed on lightweight aluminum, was easily the most popular print in the show. One man even drove by, saw the large print from the road and just had to stop and see the picture up close. (Aspens near the Great Meadow, 2012)

This summer I took part in my first Bar Harbor "Art in the Park" show. This annual fair at the gateway to Acadia National Park is a showcase for painters and photographers to show and sell their art. I custom printed over forty-five large (16x20 to the large 40x60-inch metal print above) limited edition prints for the show, as well as over 120 open edition 8x10's, a new Acadia Centennial poster, and sold several copies of my book. It was my first time participating in the show, but the response to my work was very gratifying. The icing on the cake came a few days later when I was surprised to learn my photography had been awarded "Best in Show." I'll definitely be back next year to do it all again.
