Feb 15, 2009

Inspiration finally came up and made itself known to me. I have been sketching my first window treatment cornice for most of the day. It feels good to be back at the old ‘drawing board’ once again. This piece will go above my sofa. I’m doing a mama robin and a couple of juvenile robins with crab apple tree blossoms. Think Spring!

I also got notification of the annual Artist Magazine’s competition. I have been thinking of entering some of my work in various venues and this might be a good place to start. I have to admit it that it scares me a little though. It is not so much about winning or losing as it is about acceptance or rejection---most importantly that acceptance or rejection comes from your peers. Artist whose work work you know and respect. Artist’s egos are really vary fragile things. You see, we put it all out there for you to see---our heart, our soul if you will---right out there, unprotected and raw. I don’t need to win this competition (ok, it would be nice to win), I just need to know that I’m good enough to compete. That the judge at least hesitates---for a moment---long enough to say “not bad, not bad at all”.....

Well, that is where my thoughts have been on this day. The weather here is overcast and kinda chilly. We both stayed in--me with my art--DH with his computer. I do declare DH should be the most knowledgeable man on the planet--all that time researching on the computer---sure hope his head does not start to swell up with all that knowledge---LOL! I know.....’I’m a very, bad girl’!
