Speaking of photos, the Muddy Creek Artists Guild is having their spring show June 3-5 in Galesville, Maryland. Applications to be in the show need to be turned in today. I am on the fence about participating. I am not sure that I am "Chesapeake Bay" themed enough to sell my work, and I don't want to create work I'm not passionate about in the hopes that someone will buy it. I sincerely believe the passion you have for your art comes through in your work.
So, it's a Catch 22.
In addition, all of the work has to be new, not previously shown through the Guild. I made a HUGE investment for the show in December and didn't sell anything. Now to have to create new work, plus the expense of having things framed is a huge drawback for me.
If I decide to be in the show, I will only have one or two framed pieces and the rest of my work will be matted 8×10 or 5×7 pieces displayed in the art bins. I do have some beautiful hummingbird photos that might sell (especially in the art bin).
I need to spend some time sorting through my photos, and decide if I want to make the financial investment.
Decisions, decisions, decions…
