There is little more satisfying in the art and craft of picturing making than when a thematic body of work comes together as a cohesive entity. Granted, selling an office suite worth of my pictures ranks right up there, but, when you come right down to it, successful selling is most often predicated upon portfolio presentations - a kind of horse-before-the-cart thing.
So, as mentioned previously, one of my somewhat pressing objectives is to organize and edit my various bodies of work - currently numbering 9 very different individual bodies of work - into individual portfolios. The point of that exercise is to get those portfolios out to a number of galleries with the hope of having a few exhibits of my work. And, that objective met, to make some sales.

my response: First let me express my thanks for all the comments. As always, they are greatly appreciated, especially so when they are in response to a body of my work.
Sven - as you have observed, the covers do have a person visible whereas the remainder of the pictures in the collection do not. Obviously, that was an intentional ploy on my part.
The purpose of that ploy was to introduce to viewers of the balance of the work the idea of looking out of a window. However, rather than seeing a person looking, I want the viewer of the pictures to be keenly aware that he/she is the observer, not only of the glimpse of the scene outside the window but also of the pictures, in their entirety, and the prints, as objects in and of themselves.
