Tomorrow is the "drop dead" deadline to get these in to the Art Gallery 66 (located on old Rt. 66 in Bernalillo). They had put out a call to artists to submit these 5 x 5 canvases which will be for sale and on exhibit now through December. These are ready to go, so they will be dropped off today.
Fighting self doubt and insecurity (what if the owner hates these and sends me away with them?). Argh...get over it, girl!
I was talking to my sister-in-law, Linda who lives in San Diego about this Art Center (check out the link) for the developmentally disabled located in El Cajon, CA. The art that these people who are 'disabled' is absolutely amazing! She was telling me how when they have their charity events that people from La Jolla (a very wealthy neighborhood) can't get enough of this artwork. It got me to thinking about how we are perhaps more so disabled since we are plagued with insecurity and self doubt. The inner critic is always chattering (seems to be most 'vocal' when I've created something for a specific call for art); creating barriers to the creative process. The lesson I have to keep on renewing for myself each day is to silence that critic within me. I need to just let go and trust my intuition.
