Art Crawling


I am feeling wicked uninspired. This is bad. It is especially bad because I am in the throes of preparing for the St. Paul Art Crawl. It's making me crazy insecure. This is the first time I've done something like this, and while it's not even a big deal (because anyone can sign up to do it), I am, after reviewing all of the photos on my computer, fairly confident that none of them is good enough to show to anyone, ever. Because it's one thing to show work to your friends and family. They have to be nice to you. It is an entirely different thing to show your work to strangers. And, well...balls.

This new found insecurity in my photography abilities was exacerbated by me making business cards, at the behest of my mother. So thanks for that, Mom. *wink



I have nothing to do but stare down the imminent failure heading my way. Oh, and also I have to mat and frame a bazillion photos. And thoroughly clean my whole apartment. And rearrange the furniture. And some other things. But other than that, nothing.

My framing/matting system could be improved. I am not really a naturally tidy or efficient person. For example...



That semi circle in the middle? That's where I sit...

And really, I'm probably worrying about nothing. All these visiting strangers I'm concerned about will probably just be two random people who are on their way out and happen to walk past my open door. At least, I kind of hope that will be the case...

Fretfretfret indeed! I think your work is incredible. And I'm excited for Mer's modeling debut. And even if no one shows up, you really can't take it personally... since they can't really judge work they haven't seen before...
Hugs.
