My posts, for the most part, focus on process. Why? Perhaps it is because, since I was a child I have been fascinated by how things transform. I was mesmerized by a babysitter who would entertain me by knitting doll blankets. Imagine a length of yarn magically becoming a beautiful blanket I could wrap my doll in before putting her to bed.
Now I am the one doing the transformation. Not with yarn, but with fabric and thread. Not beautiful blankets, but art to be hung in galleries, homes, and even a US embassy. A dear friend, follower my blog, who owns some of my art reminded me I tend not to share when a piece I created is accepted into an exhibit, hanging some place special or purchased.
I have learned to say thank you when someone compliments my work. I know not to point out the flaws and share what I wish I had done better. However, I do struggle when it comes to posting about times when my art is on loan or purchased. So, dear friend, thanks for the reminder. Really, isn’t selling and exhibiting part of the process?
