What's up with the Present (I & II)?

I have twice uploaded images to this website under the title "Present" and here's why... My 97 year old grandmother Jeanne (who is still sharp as a tack) likes to say this quote, "History's a mystery and the future's uncertain. Today is a gift- that's why they call it the present." I agree. The images are from recent explorations and projects. They may be cell phone shots, or elaborate studio productions, reflective of the time. My work is concerned with ephemeral and temporal things so this seems a good fit. In Present I I imagined as a "salon" style display of different sizes while Present II is comprised of three distinct series. We shall see what the future holds!
