So thinking on, and having ideas for reconsidering art practice... out of the blue has come two opportunities.
I made these for the first.....
This was a quick turnaround, as in only a few days between receiving details, and date for postage in order to meet deadline.
The work has to fit in a CD case - so its very specific on size to meet.
So I've sent these off, the nature of the event is there will be no personal acknowledgement of receipt, so I have to hope they arrived. I will hear nothing again until April time, when hopefully a fat cheque arrives! (I have seen a photo of a box of entries, but which brown envelope is mine....) The good news is that there is a minimum price of £20 per piece, you set the price yourself, but that's the starting level. So now I need patience, to see what returns. So for a full day of intensive work (plus takes ages to label and pack), I hope someone likes and buys (at least one, please).
Next, the opportunity to enter an Open Exhibition - internet submissions. Now I have been in this Exhibition twice before, but haven't had success in many years. Always difficult when you stitch, as usually the Open has only 3-4 pieces. I had decided not to bother any more - but the entry fee for three pieces is only £15 and entry online is fill in a form and send images. Its very easy, especially when I make a practice of photographing everything I make. This is a selected event, so its all down to the judges, and whether work fits in with other pieces to make a good display. I won't know the outcome for about 3 weeks.
So.... the question remains, have I actually finished submitting for the year?
