Are you panicking at the thought of an exhibition of your work or relaxing, enjoying and learning from the experience?

This is my stand at the Gallery, my first time in a public setting. The experience taught me quite a few interesting things.

1. It was not as scary as I thought it would be as I shared the venue with 7 other co-workers who are creative in their home time away from work.

2. The artwork was quite varied and so was intriguing to look around the displays and see quite different works from paintings to my books to sculpture to beautiful cut paper work to cartoons, paintings and eclelctic pieces.

3. Friends, family and co-workers were very supportive of the experience. A friend even gave me flowers at the preview night which was just perfect.

4. It was novel for the other gallery contributors as well to be in a combined showing

5. It was not life and death to be seen for what I do and who I am.  It did not change my life in a day but contributed to my life experience.

6. It galvanised me into looking at some of my car photos - rusty old steering wheels and car wheels - and  getting them framed and hung gallery style in our home ready for any future options or showings

One word for 2013 - Unafraid

I saw this video one word and was inspired to think of a word for 2013

 - my word is - UNAFRAID - I have courage but I need to stop pre-empting where and when I might need to use it

I need to trust that when and if "IT happens" - I will handle it( as I have so many times before)

Some definitions  for unafraid:-
oblivious of dangers or perils or calmly resolute in facing them
free from fear or doubt; easy in mind
Feeling, exhibiting, or expressing no fear 

As part of being unafraid versions of both of my Are you serious? books have just gone to
The Rainbow Serpent Festival - looking forward to what unfolds
