Well, the tripod and the camera and I spent a long time together this morning, post dog-walk, and I think I managed to take a decent portrait of me. I'm still waffling between two of them though. Hey, options are good!
But now I'm agonizing over the questions I have to answer for the miniature show catalog. Egads, this feels like high school essays again, like there ought to be some "correct answer" that everyone expects me to come up with.
Who is my primary artistic influence and why?
(I can't come up with ONE person, that's impossible! There is no ONE person who was most fundamental in my artistic development, and there is no ONE person who most influences my current work! Eeek!)
Why do I work in my chosen media?
(Whew, that's easy, there's a very straight forward answer to this, I can explain it no problem!)
What is the most important piece I have created and why?
(Yikes! I've narrowed this down to a small list of a few pieces, though NONE of them are scrimshaw, which is what I'll be exhibiting there. I have a feeling my most important piece is supposed to be in my chosen media. Hmmm. There are some that have been important for various reasons... opening doors, discovering something new, etc.)
Oh yeah, and I need to finish this tomorrow!!!
