I was told to find a "common thread" in my work. In other words my work cannot be all over the place. How does one do this? How does one find your voice?
I am convinced that it just does not happen over night. It takes time and a lot of work following your bliss.
My brain is literally aching over some things like,
find your common thread
creating a brand
designing a booth.
So what is the secret?
It is to make something EVERY DAY.
That is what I have been doing for the past two weeks. In between taking care of
Cosmo, social media, art markets, art exhibits, taxes, photography, teaching, and submissions.
It is a miracle we can create anything!
But enough of that. Let us take a look at what is going on with me the next two days.
I want to thank the Arts Council of New Orleans for all of their support and all that they do for us artists here in NOLA. Their Artist as Entrepreneur program was how do you say?
Fertile Ground is a show featuring us graduates of the program. So come on out this Friday, April 17th, 5-7pm.
The Exchange Centre Gallery, 935 Gravier Street
Come meet me IRL.
That is In Real Life!
Saturday, April 18th is Earth Day
and the Arts Market of New Orleans is partnering with the Louisiana Bucket Brigade for
NOLA Earth Day Fest from
11:00am - 7:30 pm
It is going to be BIG.
Here are a few of my new pieces I will have with me this Saturday.
|For My Mistress (New Orleans)|
Wow! My fingers look like prunes. Maybe I am dehydrated?
HA! Pay attention to the piece NOT my fingers. Hahaha!!!
Next week I would like to share some of the process of these two pieces but have to go now and buy some jeans. See?
Yet another thing I have to do while creating. Life just seems to get in the way.
I find the things I make does not look like my style at all but hey, it happens.
Ha! Kind of like Keep Swimming.
Have a great Thursday everyone and I hope to meet some of you this weekend.
