Sooo, remember how I have a show every year at Gregg Irby Fine Art? Well, this year we are changing things up and I am doing an "artist talk" on Friday, November 8th at the gallery at 12:30pm.
Daytime baby. Update y'all. Its going to be webcast! Not live, but it will go up on this blog. Thanks for your interest in that. I guess I have to go practice in front of a mirror now.
Also, what will I be talking about? Topics include but are not limited to: Recurring dreams, The role of tomato sauce in the painter's life, How much Harry Potter is too much?, The power of the power nap, Having it all, aaaaaannnd how awesome is my husband? Spoiler alert. Pretty much perfect.
This year, as you know, I have been working at a reduced capacity. I was kindareally stressing out about this earlier this year but you know what? I have decided that I can take control of the situation and embrace the fact that I have fewer pieces, and not beat myself up just because I couldn't produce the roughly 50 paintings required for a solo show. I put my heart and soul into the paintings I did create, they are special to me because I have been slowly building up my strength over the past several weeks (cuz I be getting better y'all) and they represent a phase of experimentation and re-birth in all aspects of my life. I am going to talk about all of these issue soon, but I want to let it soak in a bit first.
