I'm actually uploading a finished piece of work, nobody go into shock please.
Let's all be real here. There comes a time in every artist's life when they get stuck on something and start to question all of their life decisions. 'Why the hell did I move across the country?' 'What was I thinking, a FINE ARTS DEGREE?' 'I'm never gonna make it as an artist, I'm just not good/confident/talented/marketable enough!' Those sorts of questions.
This is the first piece I've finished since moving to Austin, TX last August. Almost nine months. One panel. ONE. I fell into the deepest art slump/depression that I have ever been in. Between no kiln access and a busted grinder within the first month, morale was running pretty low. But my wonderful husband, great friends, a job that doesn't suck, and THIS SHOW helped me fight my way out of the doldrums and back into my studio making glasstacular pieces. Look forward to more in the near-ish future.
