dare me?

i am thinking
of venturing out of my house
and down the road
and into the horizon
to find a venue
a cafe or a gallery
who thinks my art
just might
hang
on
a
wall.
maybe make me
a buck or two
get the name
emje
out there
and into ears
&
onto lips
or
at least
get me
adventuring
out of my house
& down the road.

so i have some art i think i could display…like in a public place. i have my series of “whimsical inkings
and i also have the starts of a self-portrait series on water color paper (does anyone know the world’s record for self-portraits?)

 

plus the ink on canvas self-portraits i have been accumulating…i think i have a show-ish.

so that’s my plans for the beginning of the month. maybe hit first friday…maybe rub elbows with some art lovers. maybe make some connections/set up a showing?

in other news…
my terrible funk seems to be lifting and i am no longer imaging my life as anna karenina vs. the train.
so that’s nice.
my house is infested with fleas & i lost a beehive to a massive wax moth infestation…but i am squinting and maybe? maybe see a light at the end of the tunnel?
my mindset is slowly shifting back from “holy fuck why is my life so weird?” to “i love my weird-ass life.”

i am deciding what extra weight needs to be thrown to keep the ship from sinking…but i think i may have successfully deterred any upcoming visits from diabolical parents…so i might not have to pack up so soon?

everything is in flux right now.
everything.
but i am slowly transitioning back from severe motion sickness to enjoying the ride…so…hold on y’all.

  1. So glad you were able to take off the sweater. The packages arrived today. Thank you, i can’t recall the last time i was this excited. Thinking of putting off matting and framing so i can get a couple more pieces i have my eye on. Choosing which ones is the tough part. How many hives do you take care of? Bummer about those wax moths.

    1. thank you! i tried to reply on tumblr but am struggling to get things uploaded over there & my reply got lost. but i am so so so happy that you are enamored with my art. i really appreciate your support as a friend & patron.
      i have one hive now. i tried to split it in the spring–but neglected to care for the split & the weaker hive got invaded. i need to step up my beekeeping. but i learned a valuable lesson. hopefully my bees will forgive me.
