Winds and perhaps a Gentle Breeze
I’ve decided to be more aggresive in promoting my artwork. That also means I will have to produce.
I’m working on getting myself organized (Again!).
I don’t mind sorting, filing, looking through art supplies…In fact, playing with those materials–and I have a lot–I really don’t need to buy much of anything for a long time.
Organizing my digital files and photos—that is another thing. I’ve taken the photos but my labeling is haphazard and I can’t find things—maybe I just don’t know how to work the search part of the photo site—so I end up taking repeat photos.
But I think I have come up with a plan to get those organized so I can find things.
Today I entered a call regarding ‘Wind’. I have in mind two other pieces that will be fun and not so serious.
Here are the three pieces I submitted.
This was a challenge to portray the Wizard of Oz in such a way the viewer would want to read the book.
with a birthday in March, I have always been fascinated by the imagery of kites. One of my husband’s early adventures with my brothers was driving his LandCruiser over a hayfiled to generate enough win to fly a huge box kite with a brother hanging on for dear life out the back window.
Sometimes a gentle breeze is all we want–and this piece of silk with ink splattered and leaves from some young trees falling on the sidewalk in Houston functioned as templates and stamps.
It’s hard to predict what will happen. There are usually a lot of entries, the competition is quite stiff. But no-one will come looking for my artwork unless I enter. Even if rejected, it has been seen by jurors who might just remember my work.
