The "New" Piece
I always found the announcement of a new artwork an interesting thing, simply because a finished artwork is never really "new" but rather just "completed."
If you're anything like me, a "new" piece is actually an artwork you've been staring at for weeks on end (although there are some exceptions to this i.e. sudden inspiration that motivates me to complete a painting in as little as two days' time.)
In any case, a finished artwork is an exciting thing to announce.
Speaking of, here's my latest:
It's titled, "Where Darkness Can't Breech," and it's about how even on our darkest days there remains a sliver of hope within us.
It's currently being showcased in Kent, OH at the FJK Gallery for their "Celebration of Light" exhibit. It's my first time having a painting in a gallery, so I'm really quite (but humbly) proud that it was accepted.
Speaking with the organizer was rewarding as well. Hearing his excitement for the piece made my heart leap- and the building was such a cool space to even glance at.
I had my youngest with me at the time of drop-off, but I've made plans to go and see the exhibit in all its glory with a friend of mine.
I'll be submitting more pieces to galleries next year, and hopefully, I'll start making a name for myself in the local art communities.
Here's to New Year's Resolutions!
