Not a particularly nice title for a post but it really sums up how I feel today. You know when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, when you are about to do something that is completely out of your comfort zone.
Today I have finished my artwork and will be going to town later to submit my work for the “Nostalgia” Exhibition. Any one would think I was submitting work to the Tate…I cannot believe how nervous I feel. A “guest curator” will decide yay or nay, and I am thankfully at the stage where even if it’s nay, I will knuckle down and still carry on down this creative path I have set out for myself. My husband sort of rolls his eyes at me, he’s heard it all before. I seem to constantly be putting myself in situations which will suddenly scare the pants off me.
“You’re a Ninja,” he just says, “you will be fine.”.
But I have butterflies.
Here is what I will be submitting, the only thing I haven’t thought of yet are titles. I don’t like the thought of having to name my work, but it’s a requirement. I guess material wise they will be classed as mixed media, there is embroidery in there but there is also photography, cyanotype, paint, found objects… (click to enlarge pics).
