The kids will be going to school starting next week and I have decided to use the time they are in school to work on art. To I guess make a real commitment to working for the first time since undergrad.
All summer I have been actually doing some work with the crochet mixed media stuff and I am really enjoying it. I now have two new pieces plus an old piece all in the style of my new work and I submitted to a show this afternoon.
I have only ever one other time submitted work to a show and I was rejected. I have never shown my work anywhere except for the senior show in undergrad and the final show in grad school, shows where everyone gets to put in a piece. I am so afraid of judgement I just have never submitted my work anywhere else. I also don't feel like I ever really had finished work before except for the odd painting or maybe a print here and there.
I don't even have real equipment to take pictures of my work. I borrowed a camera from a friend and I used free software that came with my computer in order to edit it. And my computer doesn't have wifi (the air port is broken) so I had to make my phone a personal hotspot, connect via bluetooth, email the images to myself, and fill out the submission form on my ipad (the personal hotspot also wasn't super reliable).
Anyway, without further ado, here are 3 untitlted pieces :P
