Anxiety has been an issue, but I am kind of trying to work through it. It doesn't seem like that, because I'm not really getting a lot done. But just functioning, and forcing myself to focus on things counts as accomplishments.
I got my associate in fine arts degree, which was nice to get done.
A former teacher of mine invited me to contribute a piece to a show. A gallery she participates in has a show where members invite people to contribute a 12x12 piece of art. I did this several years ago, also at her invitation. My anxiety and depression were worse then, and I never went to see the piece hanging in the gallery. It sold, and I never scanned it or got any kind of picture of it and it is a piece of me, gone forever. :/
This time, I am going to make a point to go see a piece of art I made hanging in an actual gallery. I don't think it will fit in there, there are a lot of professional artists that product a lot of good art who regularly contribute to the gallery, but fuck it, I was invited and it's happening. *insane cackling laughter*
Do you like to sell your art; do you like the idea of selling your art, even? Is it stupid of me to not like the idea, to want to pursue art but not want to sell it? I tend to think it's just as well that I don't like the idea of selling anything, since I'm not cranking out the best quality shit. But I also like the idea of making people look at my art (this idea also disturbs and scares me at the same time)... and selling your art in a gallery setting is one way to make that happen. I don't know, it's difficult to think thoughts and feel feelings.
