My First Time

In January this year I was part of my first art show ever. I showed a drawing in the self-portrait exhibition at Gage. It was not easy to make the next step and show a drawing publicly. Massive self doubts crept up, what might others say or think – you know. BTW showing your art in a gallery space (hanging physically on a wall) is different from posting it online – after all you might run into someone who actually knows you 🙂

It’s difficult enough to show for the first time but to show a self portrait for starters was even harder. Anyway, I did it – here I hang:

And here the description for the drawing – a bit larger so you can read it:

The show was judged. I didn’t win anything. But, my drawing actually hung right next to the first place winner and one away from the second place winner. I’m taking this as a good sign – and encouragement to keep going, haha  🙂
