While I was working on two new collages today, I thought about where I need to go now. What direction should I take? Tomorrow, besides finishing the two collages, I have to start one of my entries for the CPSA show. This will be a self portrait, a first for me. So, wish me well. My confidence is just a little teensy bit shaken today.

Collages and Thinking About Colored Pencils
Yesterday I had a painting (below) of mine critiqued by a very estimable artist who I admire very much. Well, he ripped it apart. No, not literally. He really gave me a detailed critique and it wasn't as hard to take as it would have been in my 20's or 30's. Isn't age wonderful? So, now I have no doubt about how he feels. It turns out it was one of the reflections paintings I did last year and was so proud of. He even said that if I had ideas about doing more along that line to forget it. Well...he he......I already did several. And they are hanging in the gallery, right out there in public.
