I’ve been working on the weekends whenever I can with art. I feel a surge of ideas. I’ve not lots to show as of yet because they are 1. Oil paintings 2. They take forever to dry 3. I am doing layered work. Needing up to at least 12 layers per painting.
In others news, I submitted some work to be auctioned for a good cause. It’s for an animal shelter. I plan on submitting work for the auction in December too. I’m so happy to help out.
And to change the subject yet once again, my sister has hooked me up with a salon in Montreal. I just need to contact them and get some pictures ready. The unfortunate thing is I likely have to ship them at my cost 😦 I should work out a deal with the owner though for sure and price them so that the cover of shipping is reimbursed plus that she and I get a good and decent commission. I’m so excited. My hard work is finally paying off. Thank goodness I’ve progressed enough so that even I somewhat like the direction I’m going in with the work. Lots and tons of improvement is needed though.
Furthermore, my aim to make myself known. Not like Andy Warhol known, but have people in the community I live in to know who I am. Additional, I keep trying to enter shows but it’s weird figuring out how to do that. Even applying to get bursaries and grants is weird—as it should be. Things like that never come easily. (You need a sponsor, like a person who can verify that you are a good artist basically lol, plus a few other things of course. One being an artist statement and another being your purpose or and goal).
