San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles
I did get another email about another juried show for fiber artists that was accepting past work created within a certain time line. I pulled seven of my best dolls and decided to give them the star treatment and took some new photos of them. Getting ready for the mermaid show, I learned about taking good submission photos with the right dpi, resolution, pixels, etc., ect., ect. I never understood any of that before but nowadays you can google anything and find a tutorial. I used to do a little photography many years ago with a Minolta SLR camera but the cost of developing film killed the joy of that hobby. Digital cameras make things so much easier.
I'm staying creative and busy turning ideas into projects and ready to meet the challenge of the next show. I read a really good article about being creative on demand. The author of the article talked about being able to take advantage of more calls for artists and client opportunities especially with specific themes. Having the ability to come up with an art or design concept that meets a prospectus and executing and completing it on time is pretty powerful. I am going to try hard to follow some of his suggestions
