Okay- you are all probably wondering where I’ve been. I did this whole post about how I was now free from working outside the home, and I was going to commit myself to my art, and then — poof– no more updates. Well, the truth is I have been frantically pursuing my art, which is why you haven’t heard from me. 🙂
Here’s the scoop… I stopped by the Carroll County Arts Council a few weeks back to finalize my Civil War submission. Susan, the visual arts coordinator, let me know about another fairly local “call for artists”. Now I am relatively new to the art world, so you’ll have to forgive me for not realizing that this was a term I could online search with to find places that might display my work. You may even note that I have used the term previously in this blog – so, yeah, not the quickest study.
Anyway, I found three different shows that I felt I could submit to with a deadline of the first week of June – but I didn’t have any pieces ready to photograph. So THAT’S what I’ve been up to. To borrow from a classic ’80’s movie, I’ve been “sewing like the wind”.
The first show is in the Washington DC Foundry Gallery. I am submitting my Purple Poe (which I tweaked) and this sepia of Lincoln.
I am hopeful, and alittle anxious, but mostly I’m excited to put it all on the line and see what happens.
