Quilt National

I have been entering this show for more than 20 years- I need to 

look up the exact count. I make 'virgin' work for this show. I have enterd my holographic work, but I think it is hard for a juror to understand what they are seeing as there is just 

out there like it. So this year I went back to flat work. First, I did a couple painted works, but digital is my passion at the moment, so the painted pieces didn't seem jazzed enough. Here are some pic's of the entered pieces.

art, meaning and families

What do female artists do? Does anyone ever question thier sense of purpose. As Women, are we supposed to put everyone before our creative urges and wants. We are told we must fit these wild and crazy inspirations between family gatherings and the needs of our partners. If we don't turn a huge profit, we are told we are playing, that what we do doesn't count. How do we fit our real selves into these pictures without feeling guilty and selfish= because someone told we were?
What makes us real?

Expressing yourself thorough your art is who you are. You really have no choice but to keep doing it. The Alternative is to crawl into a fetal position and die; Period. End of Discussion. As one who has been married FOREVER, I have found that the agreements we made to share our lives together need re-negotiation. The old paradigms we lived by because the kids were small or money was needed to educate them etc no longer exist. Men have trouble with that, especially those who are successful. At this stage of the game our relationships need to be mutually nuturing.. whether it be a marriage, friendship or parent/grown child. I don't know where your fulcrum rests but you need to feel you are in a good place to sustain both yourself (your art) and a joyful relationship.

Belonging to the League of New Hampshire Crafts since 1993 has been an exciting growing experience. I am challenged to keep my work top notch while I strive to grow my edges. The past two years I have done a 10x10 booth at the Sunappe fair grounds for 10 days. While it is a long time, I get to meet people and talk about my work. Beautiful! I continue to expand by applying to more shows. I have just applied to one in NJ and  will be at the Paradise City show in Marlborough MA. I do continue to send my work to galleries and enter exhibits. It is so wonderful to have these opportunities to share my creations. Thank you all!
