Dreams will come true
This week I got confirmation to submit work to a great, fab, awesome group exhibition.
The owners of the Art & Design Precinct are committed to emerging local artists and it’s a real honour to be chosen for this exhibition. The theme “Fortune 500” relates to the dimensions and price of the artwork. All is 500x500mm or under, priced at $500 or less. So I can guarantee there will be some fabulous, affordable, unique art in this exhibition.
When friends would comment on why I do so many of these Art-Biz-type coaching courses, I guess the answer is simple.
I need the direction.
I didn’t grow up in a creative environment. Any creativity I did have, wasn’t nurtured; in fact at times I felt like wanting to pursue that life was an intrusion to more important things – like working in a bank just until I got married.
So I need someone with absolutely no vested interest in my happiness and general well-being to say I can do this; to say I have talent; to say I can make Art, be successful and (God forbid) actually derive an income from a creative life. I need my little creative cohorts to love me just enough to not hurt my feelings, but intelligent enough to give constructive criticism.
It’s about the Ego, self-love and confidence to go forward. To no longer give the critics and nasty-Nellies any air time or space in my head or heart is a relief. I feel now the art speaks for itself and my art on other people’s walls is a sufficient response.
If you’re in the Brisbane area from now until early July, please visit the gallery (they have fabulous coffee). I would love to meet you inside the gallery on another day to chat about the art and other stuff, just drop me a line.
Wishing you a fabulous Tuesday!!
