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. :))
