I have some upcoming exhibiting opportunities that have pushed me along a little faster than I probably would have gone without added motiviation. To get ready, my hubby and I spent the weekend figuring out some "framing" options for some of my work. Focusing on "There are no Rules!" as a way to approach my art, the "framing" is anything but traditional. So far I am using corrugated metal and lathing, nuts, bolts, washers, etc. After 2 trips to Home Depot and a trip to a metal shop, we have a prototype that I can now show. With "framing," this piece is 26"x30" and was a lot easier to pull off than I had previously thought it would be ("Ha! Easy for you to say." says my hubby who did the heavy lifting this weekend. Thank you, Babe!) We are still experimenting and considering other "framing" options. Overall though, I thought this was a great first attempt. What do you think?
"Framing" some of my work seemed like such a huge barrier to a next step in my mind. But now that I'm here, I'm wondering why I was hesitant. I'm guessing it was just another bit of fear that was manifesting as a way to stay inside my comfort zone. I saw a great quote over the weekend, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." -Neale Donald Walsch
READY OR NOT, HERE WE GO! I AM READY FOR THIS PART OF MY LIFE TO BEGIN!
