Early this month was Augusta’s Art In The Garden. June 3rd
I seriously considered not participating this year.
I’ve been in school all year, and unable to develop a strong body of work. I reluctantly decided to do the show since I have been in this show for the last 6 years, and it is in my home town.
The show was a success!
I have noticed that each year, the show is a bigger and bigger success. Many friends came to the show…some I had not seen for a few years. I had a great time, and am glad I decided to do the show after all. Thanks everyone for coming out!
Before the show, I had a few questions about the direction of my work.
Taking a year from studio work to study computers, I had moments when I thought I would like to work with computers to make a living. Other times, I deeply resented my studies and felt I was ruining my life depriving myself time to create artwork.
I have been working hard with my art since the show
I love being an artist. There are some exciting possibilities with technology that I will continue to pursue, but my primary objective is to be an artist, so that has been my focus over the summer.
A few shows are coming up:
I will be one of the exhibitors this saturday at ‘the Written Word’ bookstore in Ripley, Oh 4-8pm
