It's been a busy time over the last couple of weeks, and along with the change from 2011 to 2012 comes the move into a studio space. It's the first time I have had a space for 10 years and I am incredibly excited.
I'm going to start moving in properly at the weekend and hope to be working in there as of next week.
Everything seems to be a whirl of applications and submissions at the moment, in an effort to get myself out there. Trying to keep track of the deadlines is incredibly tricky at best. At the moment I have submissions to 4 things, all at different stages of application....I say things because they're not all exhibitions. One is in New York...which is cool but weird all at the same time.
Now I'm back to work, it becomes harder to stay on top of it all. If I don't get any success with any of them then I don't mind because the going for it is the important thing. Now I have my studio space I can get ready for my exhibition in May...just as well as I have run out of paintings for what I'm doing at the moment, let alone fill a gallery space on my own!
Such an exciting start to the New Year; new resolve, new studio space and a real sense that if I keep working hard at this then I might just get somewhere. It's been a great few months and I can't wait to see where 2012 takes me.
Happy New Year!
