Sorry for the absence everyone but I've been a busy busy girl! I mentioned a couple journals back that I joined a gallery fairly close to where I live so I've been putting all my energy into trying to create some "nice" art that maybe - if i'm lucky - I can sell and get my name 'out there'
to at least become a locally known artist. I have no high expectations but I don't want to half ass this thing and want to make an effort. I'm pretty optimistic though because one of the founding members of the gallery was mildly impressed with my art and seemed to think my stuff would sell at what I thought was a ridiculous amount. Haaaaappiness!
That all said this shit is hard work. I love art and I love to draw what I want at my pace but I have so much to do in a short frame of time. I got two art shows to throw art together for and I've spent the past month trying to get some stuff together for that and have much more to do. Not to mention getting stuff show ready is a chore, I always hated doing that in college. Yech. And I'm trying to do this while I'm being worked like a dog at work so I get a couple hours here and a couple hours there to try and do this in. I'm getting pretty stressed out hardcore. I have to neglect anything and everything else I've done before and I've come to finally realize...being a grown up sucks. No more gaming for me or writing, my xbox/ps3 and writing skills will be shut away for a time. It makes me sad but I gotta do what I gotta do for my dreams. Maybe someday I can play my stack of games I have for both systems and write my tell all book about the casino haha.
And if THAT isn't enough I made the mistake of mentioning a guy I work with is cute to a fellow co-worker who promptly decided to go kick-start a match-making between us. Oh ye gods! Just what I need when I got nary the time or energy to put into something like that! Oh well I still think he's a sweetie. We'll see.
Stamps of the week! (Some will likely show up multiple times!)
