Taking things further

Lately, I find myself stopping just short of my destination, when I'm driving on autopilot. No, you didn't miss the turn, Lisa. You didn't go far enough.

This tendency, this excess of caution, is starting to bother me. 

Even so, this year was by far my most productive, as an artist:

  • I completed ten new works, mostly collages and altered books
  • I made new contacts and friends with the help of the Artist Trust professional development program
  • I exhibited at a museum and at a convention center simultaneously

But I need to go further, in 2015.

I have a few irons in the fire:

  • In February, I'll exhibit my work at Alki Arts in Seattle for Black History Month.
  • I'm teaching a class at ARTSpot in Edmonds
  • road-tripping outside the Puget Sound region for an art show or two, if my submissions are accepted
  • I'll finish two new collage portraits, hopefully by next week!

I'm cautiously (I know, I know) optimistic about the year ahead. Keep me company on my journey, will you?
