I went, I saw, I left. Seriously though, they couldn’t have placed my piece in a better spot. Smack dab in the center and right on the very top. You could see it from outside! Unbearably crowded though. There were lots of great pieces on display but K, daughter E and I were ready to leave after 15 minutes. Glad it’s over quite frankly, though I look forward to enjoying the exhibit in peace & quiet whenever I go to class over the next few weeks. I’ll add a couple of pics to show the great placement I got, though to show the piece to it’s full advantage I’ll need to eventually photograph it with proper lighting equipment. Just like Water, which is the name and subject of the painting, it isn’t easily captured.

  1. I understand the emotions. I had many of the same feelings when I had my graduate exhibit. Still, to have people come and appreciate one's work is a kick, no?Word verification: enablexa…kinda apt.

  2. I am so glad your piece got such a good spot and would love to see the pictures of it.I read the post below and I can understand your emotions. I have no wise words, but I am glad you went, if only for a short time. I have a virtual hug for you though: *hug* There, see? :)

  3. mum: they're up now! I actually like this piece of mine a lot, but to really enjoy it you have to be able to see it up close because it's all about layers and subtle details. But this will have to do for now. Jonas: what had you studied? For me showing my creations always feels a bit like letting people see a bit of my soul and it's hard not to get emotional about it. I was anxious and dizzy through the whole thing but I made it out of there alive!Bob-Kat: most hugs I get these days, other than those from my cats, tend to be virtual, so I'll take them! :-)littlewolfe: I took the photos with my phone camera and this time they didn't come out so great, but the piece is so shiny I'd have to rent proper lighting to take adequate pictures of it.
