And as much as I love what I do, I was feeling a little burned out. A little stagnant. It was time to shake things up a bit and try something new. Enter my first ever SOLO ART SHOW!
|A shot of the 14 pieces in the show just before the opening.|
It's been a wonderful experience. I've learned so much about myself. I've learned to let creativity come as it will, not to rush it or push it or enforce constraints that need not be there. I've learned to go with the flow, and to recognize inspiration when it quietly sits down beside me. It has been an absolute joy to create this show.
|The work consists of needle-worked photography on canvas and miniature needle-worked assemblages in jars.|
|Funky angled shot with Tree/House in the foreground.|

The show opened this past Saturday, and it was wonderful. Dear friends and family were there, as were lots of new faces. There was so much positive feedback. I was riding high on a cloud all night.

I'm sickening myself with how sappy all of this is. I'll be back to my randy, sassy self momentarily, I promise. Meanwhile, go see the show while it's up at Fabricate through May 6th. You'll be glad you did, promise. Details are available here: Joy-ridden by Abby Langdon
