February was a lot more active than my usual February months. I have been in a good place creatively, which I'm very thankful for as I'm preparing for a solo exhibit in May. At the moment I have a lot of images crammed in my head and my challenge is to actually create them....a much better situation than not having any inspiration at all!
Creating nine images that I'm proud of might not sound like much, but considering each image is made using a "collage" of elements from 10 or more images, it does take a lot of time. My goal was to create 6 quality images in February, so the fact that I created 9 is wonderful in my mind.
That doesn't include the pieces I wasn't happy with, or started but not yet finished.
I participated in an artist talk for Pasadena Photography Arts - This is a Photograph Because I Say it is:
I created a magazine for the artist talk (linked above)....on the "good" roster of the month and a good foundation for the exhibit guide I'll need for May.
I was declined for an artist grant that I submitted in November 2021...on the "bad" tally.
I was approached to supply an image for the cover of a Literary/Arts magazine...details will be shared at a later date....definitely on the "plus" side.
And...I created and sent two magazine submissions...both a long shot, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
All in all, a productive month!
