It's kind of fun writing a blog that nobody reads, it's like entertaining yourself.
Well, I had a successful first showing of my work. The show is currently still running, but the reception was on June 14th. It's a group show at the Aria Salon on Capitol Hill. I had a lot of fun. My friends showed up so I was able to spend time with them, and really appreciated their support.
It's really weird to have strangers looking at your work. Especially when they don't know I am watching them and intently listening for any praise/shade. One woman commented that my butterfly drawing was "beautiful" and I thanked her. She was excited to meet me. It is nerve wracking to observe people taking in your art. I liked watching the faces.
I was more nervous about my drawings. I didn't think I would ever have an opportunity to display those drawings due to their blatant nudity. It's nice to live in a community that doesn't care about that.
A have a few more shows coming up, so stay tuned! 2018 is the year of presentation!
