Today was an exciting day. One that many artist look forward to, submitting an art piece to an art show. Part excitement is from knowing that your work was accepted to be in the show. Part excitement from filling out the paperwork at the sign in station. Part excitement knowing that others will get to see your work in a gallery. In all, no matter how great the excitement, it is no where near the feeling of satisfaction of taking an idea from concept to a completed piece of art. The feeling of how the piece speaks to folks. How they feel when they see the work. All things that I learned and immediately tried to forgot about in my college Art Appreciation class or as we liked to refer to it, “art in the dark”.
