Hello to all PBAbbate artists. My name is Donald (Don) and I am a Marine vet who served from 1979-1991. I have been in the arts most of my life, be it in music and photography. I enjoy many forms of art even if I don't quite understand the genre at the time. I am a retired tuba and electric bass player and currently working on photography in film and digital mediums. My answer to the questions that speak to me most is as follows: How can an art club best serve you? By connecting with other like minded artists, whatever shape that takes and using art club as a source of inspiration and community Do you currently have an artistic practice? I did have a photography studio. I lost it due to not being a "photographer," so to speak, rather a landlord. Then Covid came crashing in. What work would you like to do if you were to establish an art practice? General photography. I would like to photograph people as well as landscapes and still life. Are you inspired by other artists or artworks you have seen or read about? Yes, I am inspired by many forms of art and artists. I love seeing how others see the world, be it in song, painting, dancing, and photographs. Do you have any goals relating to your art making, such as learning a skill like photography, painting, or sculpture, finishing a project, applying to an academic program or a residency, or seeing your work in a book or on a wall at a gallery or a museum? I do have goals as a photographer. I would like to get back on top of my game photographically, due to some setbacks, make photographs that I am proud to show and possibly sell. My biggest goal is becoming the best photographer I can be and take that knowledge and teach it to others. I look forward to meeting you along the way and participating at a retreat together. Semper Fi, Don
