It’s both exciting and nerve racking planning for art exhibitions.
There are many art show and exhibitions on around the country, but we can’t get to all of them. Choosing which ones to attend and ensuring enough artwork for each one is a task on it’s own. Then there is the administration involved; applications, pricing, biography, transport, and packaging to name a few. It’s also a huge learning curve for someone like myself who is only a year into the “business”of art, and certainly not the image of the artist spending all day creating artworks that is pictured by many. 
But, guess what? I love it! Not just the creating but the planning, administration, logistics and most especially meeting all the art appreciators at these events.
Thanks for coming to these events and chatting about art….my favourite subject!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

Are You Journal Mad, Too?

Creating my Songbird Series
