It's time to submit to shows here in Sanpete County, and so I've been writing statements, putting my CV together, and taking photographs of my prints. I just finished submitting to the Central Utah Art Center's annual Utah Ties show. I've submitted 3 pieces. You've seen 2 of them. (My Eyes Are Up Here and Woman In Training.) But this one is new. I just finished it by putting in the color yesterday. Hand tinting is the best.
Here's the description I put to the piece for the juror's to look at.
"I Miss You" is a 4 1/2 by 6 inch etching about being in love with someone that isn't there, and how no communication can make up for a lack of physical presence. It has a sort of comic book sense of humor, helping those serious feelings hurt a little less.
Wish me luck! I found out if I got in on March 4th.
Also, I'll be in New York City from the 3rd to the 9th, so expect updates on all the fun times I'll be having there. I'm super excited, for more reasons than I feel like I can share properly here.
