The husband dear man but one that has concerns about me...asked Your not going to go and do that are you? " Yes, and why not? He didn't have answer for me. Then when he came home from work yesterday I was sitting at the kitchen table and pulled out my collage sketchbook and quickly sketched what I was seeing in my minds eye....I greeted him and he asked what I was drawing and I showed him...and out of the blue I said I'm thinking of doing some animals with my collaging...And he asked why? I was also watching a video which I'll share here...Cranes: Symbols of Survival
So funny how a loved one becomes protective over another....I know that my behavior from way back when I was a teen was very impulsive and I've had a few run ins...but that was so long ago...and the fear of a beloved growing away which is not true does make it's self present now and then as to say Hey...what about me. I get it...but I also get a bit of adventure and a small moment of my time to help out something that I connect with so big.
So not onto another rush....I have been working on accepting that this year I'm passing on doing art fairs...Oh one might think no big deal...you just don't do them..right? Well it's not been easy...the competitiveness in my which I have to admit and the personal expectations of doing art fairs like all others I know in my circle are doing...I best be doing it too...so easily my gullabliness (is that a word?) can swoop me up and make me follow the pack....well see that's why the husband has concerns...But I did some work with is and let it go....with the possibility I would still do my Outdoor studio exhibit in September which would be 8 years of doing this...
And I jumped yesterday and took a risk and sent and email out and a phone call....As I've heard done...if your heading that way why don't you check it out...couldn't hurt. Well the response to that was Overwhelming...seem the person with a gallery that I wanted to check out has been checking me out and when one door closes another opens...so as I make the transition from art fairs to galleries and finding a good fit for my work...I am in awe and full of gratitude that there is so much abundance out there.
Well much to do and so excited...tickled and giddy...I leave in two days for a workshop...and back to living the dream which of course has it's ups and down and much foot work to tend to.
