At some point you quit going on tangents and stop and get focused on your purpose. Your call. Your call in the world of art that is.
One year can make a huge difference.
Last June I was considering putting in my application to display my art in the Local Color Studio Tour. There are approximately 50 artists featured in 10 studio/homes in November.
I was a little anxious about it and freaking out at the same time. When I finally figured out what all my issues were and why it was scary to me I decided not to do it. This year my feelings are totally different.
During the past year I made a point to get more of my art printed and hung on my walls at work. This has helped me to visualize better what my style is. As I looked around at those walls this week I also decided I had a good amount ready and wouldn't need to get much more printed.
Now I just wait for July to hear if there is room for me and the jurors think my art is different enough from the others. If not I will most likely try to do the First Friday Art Trail sometime this fall.
Then there are days when the tangents lure me like the best dark chocolate. :)
Hope you're having a great Mobile Art Monday!
