I've been getting more and more photo work and exposure. My photograph of neighbor Hiroshi Iizuka's viola workshop is in the current issue of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music newsletter Upbeat:

Career Day Speaker

Sandy Edelstein and Nancy Bea Miller

March 15 was Career Day at Harriton High School. I was honored to be asked to speak to students interested in art careers. My co-presenter was Sandy Edelstein, a vivacious and talented photographer I have long wanted to meet in person. It was great to connect. She's a pistol! We were told to expect 5-15 students per session but we had between 30 and 40 at each session instead. The perennial popularity of the arts!

A new magazine article

I was very consumed with this writing project a short while ago. I'd gotten the idea to poll artists on what their favorite art books were, and what an enormous outpouring of ideas I received! I ended up limiting the field to thirty people, and even then, it was a huge effort to be brief despite the fact that my editor gave me four pages! This turned out to be a topic that really got people thinking. The piece is just out, in the most current issue of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, April 2011. Thanks to all the artists who participated! If you're interested in reading the piece, here it is (click on images to enlarge:)
