Simply.....


 Ignore Everybody





Just work



Learn your craft, do it with integrity, originality and from deep in your soul.
Do you know that I cried when I finished these pieces? My body was tingling all over, first I cried, then I laughed, then I felt an enormous sense of satisfaction that these pieces came from some place deep inside my heart, they are the fabric of my being and they will now belong to someone else. They are on their way to Mudfire Gallery and I will never see them again..........
This is how your art should make you feel or what is the point?

The phrases above came from blogs I read this week and they were words I needed to keep me from kicking another hornet's nest :)  thanks to Michele and Kelly

BTW, I just want to point out how simply Gerry is shooting this. Jim Hines, the photographer that shot my work last week, is a brilliant product photographer, no doubt about it, but my husband is an artist! These shots feel like walking in a beautiful cemetery.......

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera. They are made with the eye, heart and head.  Henri Cartier Bresson

I really like the spooky darkness that Gerry used to light these. The houses are nice too.

I know, I love how dramatic they are. This would have been good to save for October :)
I had some prints made today, unreal. I am thinking that I might have some made in a large format for show booths!

Yep, nice work from both of you. And letting go of work is what being a professional is about. Send it out in the world, accept the money for it, use that to go make more good things.

Beautiful buildings and photos. Blowing them up for your booth is a terrific idea. I keep coming beck to them; they are so evocative.

Tracey Broome said...

Veronica, I gasped when I opened the package that the dolls were shipped in! Lori, it's got to be about what you want, if you want it, your customer will want it, if they don't they are not your customer!!!
Thanks to all of you for the encouragement, one of the many great things about the blog community xox
