A show

I am thinking of working on doing a showing of my needlework pieces. I don't even know where to begin or how to get one going, but, I would love to have a show of my work. I have been working on some color theory pieces and continuing to do art piece studies from inspiration pieces from the MIA and other ideas. I also need to photograph the ones I give away, much better. I plan on framing the ones I want to show in black frames and velvet. We'll see if I go through with it. I have just been very interested in doing this kind of study and work.
I wish I could sell them, but so far I have had not much interest. Also, selling them at a store makes me nervous. The quality may not be good enough, especially on the back.
Right now, it is just for my pleasure and busy work for my nervousness in public. It keeps my mind focused on what I need to be listening to instead of focusing on wanting to leave. What a lovely thing that came from such an uncomfortable problem. God just know what he's doing. He says, "K, get out of your house, take that with you if you need to, it's ok!" So I have for the past year and have found myself out and about more.

Hm. I'm learning more about you all the time. I would have never guessed that you're nervous around people. I think you're perfectly lovely. :-)

And yes. I think you should do a show.

As a girl who is just learning to go out in public (with her jewelry). I say go for it. I think you should visit a couple of your favorite coffee shops and start there. No pressure displaying art in a coffee shop. Trust me I did it. Everyone is happy in a coffee shop. Your art is beautiful and the world needs to see it!

Thanks for the kind words guys. That is so nice.

Karen- I have increasingly had a hard time in a group of people. I really think that this has been a blessing for all my nervous energy.

Kristi- I like the coffee shop idea. I was thinking of seeing if I can just display it as art. Not so much to sell it yet.

yes. good thoughts here.

btw, the needlework is really really cool. you are the goods. kris and i were just talking about how we wished we could make stuff the way you do. i think the years as graphic artists have sort of ruined us :)

Thanks so much Bob. You are guys are too sweet. I feel a lot of creative stuff flowing. I kind of just hate having the stuff sitting around and piling up. BUT.... I just LOVE doing this work and using colors and textures! I almost can't get enough of it. K~
