I'm packing up a couple of pieces of art today to ship to Dixon for the Renaissance Regional Art Exhibit. I was in this show several years ago, 2004 and 2005 I think. But I haven't entered any exhibits since I left grad school, so I was delighted to be accepted into this show.
I'm super excited to be doing something professional again. And what's even more exciting, is that these art works are little embroidered pieces. It feels like some kind of official declaration that I am moving into other media. I haven't painted consistently in so long that I feel like I've lost touch with the mental process that went with it. I'm well into a new phase in my life, and it seems appropriate that my art should enter a new phase, too.
