Today I received the ‘no’ call. It was very early in the day, so I knew it was a no. For the second time I was not awarded my Signature Status at the Federation of Canadian Artists.
I thought I would give it another try – (I guess I had that 95$ burning a hole in my pocket), but in my heart of hearts, I knew it would be a ‘no’. My art doesn’t really have a style and it doesn’t really fit into any sort of category. (Well I shouldn’t say that, I am learning that I do fit into the ‘naive art’ category.)
On the up side, an artist friend of mine received the ‘yes’ call and I am over the moon happy for her, she is so deserving, please check out Meghan’s work!
So, moving on! I won’t be applying again, I ask myself what for? I paint just for me anyway:-)
Just a quick thank you to all of the folks who helped me out when I was trying to figure out how to frame some of my works! I’m feeling poor this year because I am now splitting my income between writing and art entries and memberships, so decide I had better learn how to frame my own work – and I have!! Special thank you to #Meghan – superstar painter and Ruth at #Opus who came up with the idea – it worked! #shims! Who knew? 🙂
Busy day! Printed out all of my labels and inventory for the #PlaskettGallery load-in on Thursday (will you be in New West in March?)
Ordered more storage, a blind to cover the front door (after only 7 years! lol), and organized my packaging supplies – – I need a whole room just for that stuff – bubble wrap can’t be folded flat just fyi:-)
