. . .had nothing, nada
to show for my work yesterday. I should have gone shopping, but instead I hung around experimenting, and it's one of the few times that all my experiments went awry and I made a lot of pink and pale purple mud. I also tried an inkjet gel transfer onto a heavily textured foamcore piece I had laying around, which might have worked if I had left it alone long enough, but oh, no, I had to peek at it and ruined it. So I'm posting this photograph from almost a year ago because I hate to post without some kind of picture.
Tonight I am definitely going outside my comfort zone. I am going to wander down to the Art*Bidz Auction in which I have a few pieces to see what's going on. AND I'm going by myself. Now this is a big deal for me. I generally don't go out by myself after dark (I know, what a wuss) and this auction is not in the relatively safe suburbs, either; but I have to start sometime and this is as good a time as any, right? Plus I don't know anyone who will be there. . . and what if no one likes my pieces? I also don't know what to wear to this kind of event, but I'm going for comfort, because I will be uncomfortable enough without having to worry about my clothes.
So, having revealed all my insecurities, I will leave you all to have a wonderful weekend. Please send up a message to the art gods tonight at about 5:00 p.m. CDT asking them to watch over me.
