There are four pieces ready now to submit to the A.I.R. Gallery "Privacy Please" show in Brooklyn, NY. Oops. Two go together but not very well with the other two. There is a big stylistic difference going on here. Subject matches but not style. What do I do? Try to come up with two more in the new style? I have less than a month. I could do it I guess, but I also had hoped to show the first two from last year as I do like them. Will this difference keep me from being chosen by the curator?
Why do I always do this kind of thing to myself? For one thing I can see now that I made a leap (small jump?) last year and have moved on, grown even. I was very tentative with the first two, feeling my way, and also trying to express a Colville sort of mood, rather than just my own. The growth is a good thing but it's timing could be better - can't go back now. Wouldn't if I could. Need to sleep on this.
