A few months ago I joined an art group, the Midwest Collage Society. So far I've felt a little . . . . conflicted about it; mostly because I'm SO much younger than everyone in the group. I feel quite a bit out of place. Today we had a meeting, and beforehand I felt like this was going to be my last. But then something changed and I've resolved to stick it out. I think I need to accept and work with these kind of challenges in my suburban life (ie, always feeling out of place.)
One good thing about the group is that I was able to get some artwork professionally photographed for free. It's a step in the right direction.
one of my very few pieces that I consider "finished." as of yet untitled. acrylic, vintage papers, and pastel on canvas.
