I'm mostly a private person. I don't like to put myself out there. I think it's mostly because I am a little embarrassed, lack some self confidence and feel that people are just going to think I am an idiot for thinking I have any talent.
So, this is about as out of my comfort zone as I can get. A behind the scenes look at part of what makes me, me.
I have a little room downstairs in my basement where the magic happens (just kidding, but not really). To the left is my art table. It was a really big deal when I bought this. It was a bit expensive, but I had to have it because I thought it would make me feel more like an artist. It mostly houses a variety of art supplies I also had to have, but actually never use, because I thought it would make me feel more like an artist. I do create mosaics. You can see my completed mosaic mirror/planter sitting on top. Mosaics are my therapy.
At the end of the room is my filing cabinet that contains the picture file I started in college. What's a picture file you ask? Well boys and girls, back in the olden days, PI (pre-internet), we had to actually cut pictures out of magazines to use as reference photos. For some reason I can't seem to let go of them. It must be the hoarder in me.
You can see my computer. I have an enormous screen and I love it! It is surrounded by a calendar, a note pad and a bunch a random pieces of paper with lists and ideas, that I will eventually look through to find what I was thinking about last week, but won't find because I probably threw it away.
I have two printers, a Wacom tablet a fax machine and as you can see on the right several framed photographs from previous gallery exhibitions stacked against the wall.
They are all for sale. (plug, plug, plug)
Today I am updating my website, looking for exhibitions to enter, balancing my check book, laundry and writing a press release.
What's on your plate?
