Last year I wrote an article about my 10 steps. I created a paintng and documented the highs and lows. It is something that is consistent in my process. Knowing this makes it easier for me to commit to the more ambitious pieces as well as increases the likelihood I will finish. No matter how bad it gets I know that persistence will pay off. The results speak for themselves. Sometimes they even work. The main thing is to KEEP GOING.
I jumped through all the hoops to get Blue Crab into the mail and off to Brea CA to the 21st Annual CPSA International Exhibition. Turns out, even with careful planning, I cut it close. Note to self: Big difference in postage price between 3-day and Ground, which is estimated to take 6 days. As I'm paying for shipping to and from destination, any additional postage is doubled. If my piece does not make it in the window given by the show's time table, it is disqualified. I chose cheap vs late. Let's hope my gamble pays off. Stay tuned and wish Blue Crab luck.
Its pretty incredible to find an article about oneself in the newspaper. What a charge and an honor! I'm hoping the exposure will send new clients my way via Row House Gallery! http://local.cincinnati.com/share/story/205971
