Journal Entry: Mon Sep 27, 2010, 2:30 PM
thought id share with you guys some art news !

i have just recently applied for a space in the ulster hall which is a local renovated building specifically for the arts ! i find out soon whether they have accepted me but i thought id share in my excitement/fear of the application .
successful artists will have a month long exhibition for the body of work space they would need - a WHOLE MONTH ? ! it may not be much to some but put yourself in my shoes - not many people get to rreally see my work and ive never exhibited anywhere but in school - so for me this is a BIG DEAL ! and a window for opportunities :]

sadly i cant display my latest work and my personal favourite (below) as it now has a home in AUSTRIA with the persons featured . but hey an artist has to part ways with their work sooner or later right ?
Something Beautiful by petebritney

anyway i find out in the next few weeks whether or not i get it , so please keep your fingers crossed for me ! and i'll let you know as soon as i hear anything !

Why dontcha ask them to mail it over for the exhibition? It is a one-chance kinda thing, and I'm sure they wouldn't mind. After all, you did draw it, and you are only borrowing it temporarily. ^^

Someone at work suggested i do that , its an idea i'll definitely consider ! but the postage from Austria to the UK could be rather expensive :s but then again the opportunities that come from people viewing that piece could be greater :) thanks for putting your idea forward ! !

Great news. I hope it works out.

Seriously, I'm surprised you haven't exhibited before. Maybe you should be more proactive in that respect. You know, art is about communication, so it's important that as many people as possible see your work.

i know , but i always had a weirdness about an arrogance that could be considered by showing off your work :s idk , ill work on that and hopefully show my pieces to people more :)

I don't think it's arrogant to want people to see your work. It certainly doesn't apply in your case, anyway. It's quite obvious from your work and your comments that you are a very sincere person.
