I'm happy to say that this summer has been full of projects. My big commission finally came to a close (and I got paid), I've had four shows in as many months, I'm collaborating with a great group of artists on a PR/marketing campaign to support local art, and the work just keeps cranking itself out.
Here's a panorama of a small exhibit done as part of a downtown improvement-type effort in which several businesses took part:
My location was a pizza joint. It worked out well and as you can see, it's a nice little spot. Management and staff alike were super helpful, accommodating, and enthusiastic. So the next time you're in State College, eat at Rotelli! They support the arts.
I had no sales, but I got a lot of positive feedback at a time when I was struggling with something of a crisis in confidence. It was a reminder that if you're offered encouragement, accept it. If you're provided with an opportunity, take it. Whatever keeps you producing the work: that's what matters.
More exciting projects are in the pipeline. I promise to get better about updating this section!
