This has been a type of triumphant last quarter of the year. Not only did I finish my pieces for the October exhibition but I took part in two others and I sold work and had a very nice write up in the newspaper.
What was a real triumph was the fact that I did not give in to fear. I had the opportunity to submit work to an art organization outside my usual sphere and I did it! Iwas terrified. Suppose they don't like it, suppose they decide it's not good enough. I almost didn't submit the work but the thought of having to wonder "what if" for the rest of my life was a stronger motivator.
I'm glad I did.
