that means a lot more finishing work and paint touch up…but for now, the images are good enough for photographs to be judged by the “Nude Nite” Jury to determine if I am good enough to exhibit this year.
Looking back, I needed to spend more time but it was a deliberate choice I made (or a really great excuse if I am not selected)…. This time…putting the holidays and time with friends and family first. I really thought I had made a reasonable compromise by NOT doing a large piece as one of my entries this year. But is there ever enough time when there are deadlines? Or am I and all artists searching for the answer we ask ourselves repeatedly....Am I good enough?
Regardless of this outcome….I have enjoyed being back in the studio, working in a newer medium that I (and my heart seem to tolerate a bit easier than the pastels). This may be the beginning of the something new I have been reaching out for!"Something New" Tom Fletcher
