Found and won this ambrotype at auction (online) and inspired to create my own version of Patrioticman. Once I am done with 3-D screen portrait I will post an image of finished piece. Applied for two artshows out of state and waiting to hear what happens next. Applying for shows is easy but, getting accepted into them is the hardiest part. There are the usual expenses of booth fees and planning a spending budget for the trips. This will be my first out of state art showing and feel positive about showing my work. I will need to create over thirty works of art and figure out displays for each show. Very excited and hopeful.
