Ugh it's been a pressing week! I've been going back and forth with the idea of entering some of my art for consideration in a serious exhibition. I finally decided that I have to or I will regret it. SO I madly finished my postcards, working around the clock at a pretty good pace. In the end, I decided one of them doesn't belong because it's NOT LIKE THE OTHERS! (ding dong... sesame street).
So I gave up.
And then I changed my mind again and remade the 'winter' postcard. I found the right photograph and PERFECTO! It's done! I feel so good about it. So I submitted all of the required information and photographs and clicked 'send'. It was 21 hours before the entry deadline.
My C.V. went something like this:- In grade 7 I won the art award.
- 2 years ago I joined a local quilt guild.
Pretty hilarious isn't it!? I don't expect to be chosen, but I am SO glad I did it. It's one more fear overcome. Like my mother always says... "Nothing to it but to do it".
The coolest thing was laying in bed lastnight. Usually I stare at the pages of Quilting Arts or other quilting books... dreaming, wishing... But last night, I lay in bed gazing at my own postcards, and feeling a great sense of accomplishment. I've made it to here!
In the entry I emailed, I was required to self-declare that I am an 'emerging artist'. What a GREAT feeling! What a fantastic way to end the first forty years of my life.
all is well
