yes.It was. I worked like a dog, I solved seeming unsolvable problems.I chose what to solve and what to let go. I tried to fight the right battles. I held onto a vision, reached inside again and again. I set aside heartaches to stay focused. I cried when I needed to and regrouped and perservered.
I was so nervous and spent the day of the show. I felt like a shrinking violet. I am by nature a quiet shy person that is filled by times of quiet and contemplative meditation, that is the state my work comes from. As precious and delightful as they are, people can be exhausting. By the grace of God, when it was showtime, I was ready and grounded in my element. I had a lovely time talking with many many folks approx. 500. Really got great response, so many students came and family and friends too.
I sold two pieces and got a few great contacts including an art director for a museum in the city that is interested in an exhibit. We shall see.
I want to sincerely thank you wonderful loving people for your steady support of me. It has meant the world to me in some very rocky times of instability and self doubt.
You are my tribe. my kind. my kindred. With tears of gratitude . . . I say thank you.
I hope I can be a blessing to you in times of need.
