Friends...family...life...love...I don't know what is the matter with me today but I'm definitely down in the dumps. Feeling kind of lonely again and really shouldn't but can't help it. This too shall pass, as my Momma used to say!
Last night B and I went to the 5x5 show at the Tulsa Art Coalition gallary. We both had pieces in the show. Mine was the one I called Shadows...We got there about 5 minutes before the doors opened and joined the line and when the doors opened it was a crush to get to the favorites. The backup was three to five deep with people on one side just to try and get glimpses of the pieces. I found mine pretty quick and B's was close by. To support the show we both found ones to purchase which took another 15 minutes of waiting in line. B was a little closed in so she waited outside and then went to Lola's to get us a table and order me a Cosmo! After a quick burger and drink we went back after the crowd thinned out to see if our paintings had been snatched up yet. Alas, they weren't but while standing there and chatting with a few people and having another look-see B's collage was purchased, right under our noses. I was so very happy for her but I was definitely hurt that mine still hung without a home. Actually, there were several still homeless and since the sale will continue for a couple more weeks I'm sure it will find a nice cozy wall to accent. I won't lie...I was jealeous and depressed that mine was not loved immediately but I will get over it. Probably why I'm down in the dumps this morning.
I have to let all know that I will be out of pocket for a few days. Something exciting is happening but I will need to share at a later date. I will have pictures and words to share then but know that I may not be here for a few so don't forget about me.
