Wish me Luck!! :)

Tonight is the opening reception for my show as the feature artist of a new gallery. It is a small space for the work, but nicely curated. I am grateful for the experience and appreciation. I was kind of blown away the other day, to realize that I actually have art hanging in 5 galleries right now. Two pieces are part of permanent collections. I am out of my comfort zone and find I need and am developing new skills. I would love to say that it’s all NEW ART SKILLS, but it is more on the order of self management and people skills. I woke up in pain this morning. I did not resist it. As I fully felt it and allowed it freedom, something began to emerge . . . the pain was about more fully entering into unknown place/space in this world via a more full inhabitation of my personal space . . . which is my body. I LOVE to make art. Learning how to navigate the business of art is a different animal. Frankly, I need a certain amount of peace and solitude. I dont want crazy busyness to overtake me or I will lose my groundedness. I have to remember that, that peace is worthy to be guarded and there is a natural order to everything. I hope I sell some art to people that love it . . . that is a part of what makes the circle complete. Wish me luck and I look forward to catching up with you my friends, I miss you guys!!!. xx

Here is a peek of the display . . .Art on Art . . .
fully realized. It actually looks better once the lighting was adjusted and I ironed a out a couple wrinkles in the art. Haha I really did. :))

    What you`ve just written here Vonski, is a confirmation of what I`ve always known about you…
    You ARE your art. You put every part of your body and mind into your produce and it`s the reason why what you create is always so soulful and organic. Even to the extent that your physical state is artistic input. And as Phil says, the decor of this place so totally compliments your art and what you are… a true child of Mother Earth in the most wonderful sense.

    So yeah, break a leg lady. And enjoy as the rest of her children discover your truth. You are among the earth`s noblest citizens and I`m honored to be among your most appreciative students :-)

  • billy!!yur a doll! Here’s a behind the scenes tidbit . . . I am transporting the smallest of my art screens to display tonight. Iinspected it and saw a couple areas that needed a touch of touch up. guess what the paint is empty. dried up! I MEAN DRIED UP. I added a few drops of water mixing mixing mixing . . . i got weak barely colored water. no go. no time to mix a zillion samples . . . what to do what to do . . . . I licked my thumb and put onto a dried ridge of paint and massaged it until . . until . . until . . . . a thin paste of paint reconstituted and and I thumb-painted the glaring chipped parts . . . perfect match. Now my spit is part of the art. oh mannn. this is life. shhhh. hahahaha!
    Thank you my friend for your tremendous encouragement. :)))

    Gosh it looks so perfect in that window! I wish for you a beautiful night in whatever form that ends up taking. I agree with everyone above me here. (And bb ~ the bit about the gum – ha!)
    You ARE the art. As long as you stay true to you and your desires, everything will follow suit. I’m going to get out there to see this in person while it’s still up.

    Have a really fun, energizing experience.

    yeah ~ Lil Bear’s a bizzy guy, but he’s up in my grill, meowwing at me, haunting me like a lil vulture from the stairs over my computer or digging around in my stuff. He literally HAS to go thur EVERY bag I bring into my studio and try to fit himself in with whatever is in the bag.
