But it hasn't been a waste of a morning. I've gone back to my novel periodically, and I've written my way out of a rough patch. Hurrah.
I also saw this call for an art show at Art Serve; the show's theme sounds perfect for me: "ArtServe seeks multimedia works that explore metaphors of home, habitat, community, and the related idea of belonging, whether cultural, social or creative."
Unlike with some art shows, where I don't have the slightest idea how I'd get started or I don't have the technical skills, I have a flood of ideas, especially in terms of photos or drawings made with markers. I thought about a collage--and then I thought of 3D possibilities.
When I'm at church tomorrow, I'll see if the piece of art I made awhile ago is still in the storage closet. We made them during an arts session for Ash Wednesday in 2018.
Actually, that picture is earlier in the process. Later, I added some map fragments from places I've lived (which ties into the theme--the box itself is a drawer from a dresser that was damaged in Hurricane Irma):
I don't think it's a juried art show, so I think my work has a good chance of being accepted.
All the work has to be for sale--wouldn't that be an interesting twist?
