Up to Us In
Guess what? I've still got "it". I had a piece selected for an upcoming Biennial! I think I keep submitting to these juried shows so I can see if the juror (who Knows) will like anything, and if so, what. This particular work, Up to Us, is pretty meaningful to me on a personal level due to its concept, which is taking care of and respecting our planet. I was overjoyed about finishing it--it was a work in progress for probably a year!--and I think it taught me a lot. You would not have recognized it in its earlier stages (and there were many). Now that it's no longer on my "torment list" (pieces that don't want to get finished), I have even begun to like it. Why is it that some works come right out, bam bam bam and others are practically impossible? So I guess this really is a triumph.
