So I'm trying to move my life forward a bit. I believe I am going to be applying to the graphic design program and the advertising program at Algonquin College here in Ottawa and see if I get in to one. Perhaps then I will be able to make my creative Visual Arts degree more employable. We shall see.
In the meantime, I am of the realization that no matter how much research into calls for submissions, etc I am doing the fact of the matter is I don't really have any art to submit. All of my good artwork is either in my parents house, destroyed by my horrid ex boyfriend or left behind to my friends once I moved. The tiny paintings I've been making aren't going to cut it. I've been buying some slightly larger canvases, but I do wish I had more money for big ones (like the five foot long painting I made once that didn't fit in a cab so I had to walk it home). Hence to be an artist - I must make art!
So I've been working on this. (Not quite finished)
So yes, I am still alive and painting. I will update with anything else in the future. In the meantime, any opinions on this one I would love to hear!
