I'm not sure if I've become a pessimist, but for now, not selling enough work to generate income seems to be the only worry I should have. That, and my slowness. Otherwise I have plenty to keep me feeling happy.
Nelson Arts Marketing have spaces at Nelson Airport terminal building to showcase work by Nelson artists. Though I've always studied and admired many of the works, I never paid much attention to the displays as a potential participant, because everything I've seen have been "hard" stuff; jewelry, pottery, glass, sculpture and a few paintings. Yesterday, I was asked to bring in a few small scarves to be included in the display from August to October.
And, gee, it was nice to be asked. I've been walking on a pink cloud ever since. I hope I never get used to this; I hope every invitation and every inclusion in exhibits always make me feel ticklish and giddy.
If you fly in/out of Nelson Airport between August and October, please look at the bottom of the glass case before you rush off. (Don't worry, I'll post a photo of the display in a month so there's no mistaking what it looks like.)
