“A Brief Word Concerning Publicity & Publishing”
Introspective by nature, but conversely forced at times to become self-promoting is an unpleasant and uncomfortable dichotomy for the artist. The work speaks for itself. However, besides painting a pretty picture and serving human interest, publicity can opt as the timely documentation of a career. A form of credentials if you will. A recognition needed and appreciated in the artist is essential to understand that he has a long history in the graphic carving of glass and crystal.
The complete long story of a life is at times passed by for various reasons, sometimes certain details are unpleasant, too technical, or just plain boring.
Choosing to overcome these difficulties with a “Spectacular Pictorial” of a career more than four decades long, with tales of enlightening value and amusement, the possibility is kept open for something of book form in the future. Yet, on the other hand, in looking and giving up looking for an appropriate publisher, the artist has turned down enough offers of dubious merit to concede a book may never go to print unless by unorthodox approach.
