Big news here.
Each spring, one of our local art galleries sponsors a show for students of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, where I take my art classes. The instructors get to pick student work to put in the show, and this year . . . my instructor chose two of my watercolor paintings.
So, that's my cow on top (the final version, sans eye patch). And the one on the bottom is my egret.
It really is a thrill . . . to walk into a gallery and know your pieces are in there somewhere. (Also unnerving. Because what if everyone else's work is so much better than yours and you just look stupid by comparison.) (Inner critic = super loud and obnoxious.)
Whatever. At some point, I just have to get over it!
There it is. My work on the wall.
Definitely something different!
(And if you're in the area and you want to see the show, it'll be up through the end of May at Life Story Network/Ignertia Gallery on North Street - near Bells! - in Kalamazoo.)
Want to see the pieces closer up?
