Updating my CV

Constant work, that's what I'm saying right now to my partner...He responds " You Love It!...You Love It!  hmmmmm...

Its time to up the anti and get going with videos on line, instructive course work, etc. etc., and I was just trying to get my CV updated to try to get an opportunity to teach a watercolor course on a cruise ship.

Then, I found out the Vancouver Sketch Club's submission to the Deer Lake Gallery as a Group Exhibition was accepted!  Now we need updated CVs for the show and 100 word essay on what inspires us.  I'm not sure that is for each artist or our group as a whole.

I was just accepted into a group show with a catalogue production for Fabriano in Aquarello that will go to Fabriano Italy in the spring.  I have to submit the piece for the show and have it properly matted and backed and then also pay the entrance fee and shipping costs.  Everything is a new process for me including how to ensure the photo of the painting is the right dpi number!!

It is exciting and at the same time daunting, but then I look at my great Artist Friends Carol McQuaid, Jan Poynter, Edna Bardell, Alfonso Tejada, the Men in Hats, and so many others that I haven't even mentioned and more that I see everyday on facebook and twitter and instagram ....they inspire me, they challenge me and they foster an idea of how great Art and all the aspects of Art and Visual Art really are!

So, even though all the business side of Art feels like a lot of work, the creative side says - it is worth it, even if it takes extra hours adding to the blog or working on the CV.  

I looked back over my blog from the last year and a half and I'm really happy I've been doing it - its a great reminder of fun times and interesting times!  Now I just remembered I promised my clients a news letter .... better get working on that too!!!!
