The Ups and Downs of the art world
Yesterday, drove to Graham (2 1/2 hours each way for me) taking my three paintings that made it into the International Show. Also took a dear friend's painting who had broken her wrist and can not drive. Today, three artists had lunch together in Grapevine, Texas, and then two of us put out posters for our PAINT group's show at the Lancaster Theater that will open soon. All of this is an "upper", only to be balanced with the "downer" of not getting a painting into the Schmid Auction. Auction results were given today. This is GOOD for me to have the balancing of art in life. It gets easier and easier to put it all in the big perspective of life and realize it has little meaning. That is the lesson for today.
