In any case, earlier this week I learned that I have been chosen as one of five finalist in "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" Artisan Search 2011 competition in the book art catagory. To say the least, I'm very excited about all of this. I'm up against four other wonderful book artists so while I'm hopeful...I'm trying not to get too much so. Even still, to be picked out of hundreds of entries is something I'm still trying to get my mind around. Is this a sign that my "art" is worth pursuing? I'd like to think so...in any case, I do have some new found confidence that I wasn't feeling earlier. And sometimes that is all that is need, isn't it?!
If you'd like to see more of "Sue's Gift" (which is one of the three pieces I submitted...) and the other two books, please go to Cloth, Paper, Scissors Artisan Search 2011 gallery. My books are on page 6 of the gallery, at the bottom of the page. Let me know what you think.
