No one ever told me that being an artist would be so hard. The creating….the brainstorming… the actual doing part of being an artist fulfils every single fibre of my being. It is all the extra behind the scenes and administrative stuff that, at times, feels like a bottomless pit. It creates anxiety and stress at times. Balancing budgets, completing submission forms…it can be daunting an all encompassing. Yet, the feeling of seeing your work on the walls of a gallery is something that never gets old. It is a feeling like no other…..Fingers crossed that this image receives an acceptance from the Art Gallery.
